This was one of my favourite wedding moments of last year – a speech by the daughter of the bride. During Pat and Brent’s fun and relaxed Winchmore Hill wedding, Pat’s daughter Clare made a wonderful speech. She thanked her Mum for being amazing and for everything she has done for her. It was beautiful and very emotional and so interesting to see the speeches turned around. Normally it’s parents making speeches for their children.
Speeches are a great part of the day for me to photograph. People are usually unaware of my camera, which is what I am aiming for. The best photographs happen when guests just go about enjoying the day and don’t feel they have to pose for me. Not only is it a pleasure to photograph the people making the speech but it’s also all about capturing the reactions of the guests to the speech. Lots of opportunities for great candid photographs.
