The Father’s Speech – I love this image


Weddings are full of emotion. Joy, sadness (tears from both) and everything in-between. The Father’s speech is one of those moments that wedding photographers absolutely love!

Last year I had the pleasure of photographing Natasha and Will’s wedding at Northbrook Park in Surrey.

Tash told me several years before they got engaged that I’d be shooting her wedding, so I had plenty of time to prepare for this day!

Over time, I’ll Blog more pictures from the wedding, but I just couldn’t resist sharing this one.

If you follow my work you’ll know that I love shooting natural, un-posed photographs that really reflect the events of the day and the inherent emotions. I’m never happier than when I see my Brides laughing and smiling naturally. Add in some great expressions from Will and her Mum, in reaction to Dad’s speech, and I think this is a winner – I hope that you like it too.

Please feel free to share this post on your Social media. I’ve also got a Facebook business page where you can catch up on the latest news.
