30 Days of Wedding Photography | Day 9 | Down the Aisle

For me, this is one of the “must have” shots of a traditional english wedding day. There’s so much preparation and energy that is expended on this one fleeting moment and I feel this is so important for me to capture it.

Having prime position is massively important for this photograph, so I will always consult the vicar/registrar before the ceremony begins to make sure I can be in the position.


This moment is usually full of tears, happiness and pride. It’s a huge pleasure to be able to photograph such an important moment in someones life!

Almost all of the attention is on the bride at this point, but I’m always sure to capture the grooms reaction seeing his soon wife walking up the aisle. It’s a beautiful moment to capture.

You can visibly see the nerves and (sometimes) stress vanish once the couple see each other at the alter.
