What happens when the groom sees the bride for the first time...

One of my favourite moments in a wedding is when the groom first sets eyes on his bride in her wedding dress. It can go either way, and normally does.
The reaction is a moment that I love to capture in a photograph to immortalise the moment.
It can reduce the biggest, strongest, hardest man to a blubbering wreck, and show the they really do have a big soft heart inside, whatever front they put on most of the time.
I have put together a selection of memorable ones for you to enjoy.
From the extremes of Lloyd, the big South African, who just broke down at the sight of Nikki walking down the aisle, to the full-on ear-to-ear grin of Euan as Sarah walked down the aisle, this is one shot I love to get, if at all possible.
For a candid, documentary style of wedding photography, please get in touch.
