A Favourite in Focus – Hands

Bride and groom holding hands in the back of a taxi

Today’s ‘Favourite in Focus’ comes from Rachel + James’ London wedding. I took this photograph just after the happy couple jumped into a taxi outside Islington Town Hall after a fun and romantic wedding ceremony.

I love the simplicity of this photograph. It tells a story by simply showing the hands of the bride and groom. There is a quiet quality to it. Two newly-weds spending a few minutes together before getting ready to get back to mingling with their friends and family.

It shows the details and accessories of the day in situ, which is how I like to show them.  You have got the ring, the flowers, the lace on the dress.  Showing the picture in black and white emphasises the details and draws attention to the connection between these two.

I hope you like it as much as I do.  You can find more of my favourite photographs and the story behind them here.
