Bride and guests laughing at the best mans speech as the groom hides his face.

The best men were telling some great stories about the groom, and as the tension built he just hid his face. The best men kpt it just the right side of decent and the whole room was in fits of laughter.

We love shooting Jewish weddings for a variety of reasons, not the least of which being the lively dance party. After the bride and groom came down from the chairs during the Hora, the mother of the bride took her turn and thoroughly enjoyed herself.

Taken with a Nikon D610 and Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G, 1/125th, f/2.8, ISO 500.

Momentous Wedding | Faye & James

We think Hampshire, UK wedding photographer Tony Hart really knocked it out of the park with this wedding. We admire his ability to catch all the different types of moments from small to big! Thank you Tony for sending in this joy-filled beauty.

From Tony: Faye & James’ wedding at Elmore Court was filled with big expressions and lots of love. Faye is an actor, and James a producer. Their friends hail largely from creative and performance fields so there was never a situation short of interesting faces doing interesting things. Faye had a gentle (but not all that strong) childhood crush on James and when they left school and went through the ritual of leaving messages on each other’s shirt, Faye wrote “See you on our wedding night, Hubby!” Astonishingly, a decade later, their world’s re-collided at a bus stop and the rest is history. A truly inspiring story and a wedding filled with incredible moments!

This was shot at a Danish wedding in which I stayed until the end of the night. It was fascinating to witness some of the Danish traditions during the day, including nine speeches in total, all the guests queuing up to kiss the bride and groom, and the guests lifting him up and cutting off the groom's socks after the first dance. Needless to say, the party that night was epic. I don't know if singing into spoons, pretending they're microphones is also a Danish wedding tradition, but it should be! I just love all the expressions, the layering in the shot and the band in the background.

Taken with a Sony A9 and Zeiss Batis 25mm f2, 1/60th, f8, ISO4000, (hand held flash).
