One of my favourite wedding photos

I have just been reminded of one of my favourite wedding photos.

It was one of those moments when we had done the group shots and whittled it down to the bride and groom only. This is one of the best parts of the day for me, as it is probably the first chance the bride and groom will have had to relax since the ceremony, and it all seems to go very quiet and peaceful for a while.

We reached a spot on the lawn and I asked the couple to just be themselves and forget I was there while I took some pictures.

They really did seem to forget I was there, and this was one of those special moments when there was a little bit of unspoken communication between them, and a silent oneness in which I was not included, but only a privileged spectator, able to capture the moment.

I love the emotion of a wedding day, and this is one part of the day when it often shows, as they are practically alone for the first time (I wish I was invisible sometimes, not just trying to be). This sums up how I mostly like to work, as un-obtrusively as possible, documenting the day in true storybook fashion.
