Kids at weddings often do the most amazing things. It’s part of my job as the wedding photographer to be there to capture those moments.
This weekend, I shot a wedding down at The Grand Hotel, Brighton. I don’t normally publish images before the complete wedding is edited, but on this occasion I’m making an exception.
This little girl was the bridesmaid, and before the wedding I could really get a sense of her excitement growing before it was “her” big moment to walk down the aisle.
Prior to that, she stopped, and had a little pray. Now, I have no idea whether it was a “play pray” or a real pray – it makes no difference to the essence of the image really.
I was a nice moment, and I enjoyed making a picture out of it.
Kids at weddings, as mentioned, can be very engaging and offer a wealth of subject focus for a documentary wedding photographer like me. You may wish to check out a photo film I did call The Little Things about this very subject. It’s a few years old now, but, well…. you’ll get the gist.
