The Magic is in the Moments…

There has been a lot of talk about what what constitutes a Bloggable Wedding but for me the Magic will always be in the Moments.

I have spoken before on the subject of Love being the detail and I stand by that.

Whilst details can be inspiring and they will always have a place in a Wedding Blog (and to be honest we all like to see a bit), what is much more vital is to feel what they feel, experience that feeling of joy, connect to the happiness.

If you go to any Wedding Photographer website 99% of the time they will say they will capture your day, the moments, being natural and unobtrusive, the fun bits, the meaningful bits ( and the details).

If you ask any person following a Wedding what their favourite recollection of the day was, I can guarentee it won’t be about what shade of purple the napkins were.

People remember looks, people remember words, people remember smiles.


So I have put together a few picture boards of what I believe are the most important part of the Wedding….Moments.

We as Wedding Bloggers have a responsibility to share everything, but not be so hung up on detail that we forget that the those  moments are most important of all.

    Great post Alison, as always. I see quite a few blogs with minimal shots of the couples just sharing moments which, for me, is at the very heart of wedding photography. Yes details and things are important also but the shots of the two newly weds are absolutely critical.
