Today we thought we’d try something a little different. As our regular readers know we love a good story on Bride Vs Groom, but stories don’t always have to be told in words! So this week we’re trying out a new feature. Every week we’ll be looking for a single wedding photograph that we feel tells the real story of the day; capturing the raw beauty and emotions of a wedding in a single frame.
To get us started, this week we’ve chosen this image from the charming, relaxed wedding of Holly and Matthew
The incredibly talented Bride is pictured doing what she does best: entertaining the gathered guests, even at her own wedding! The raw emotion of the day is clear on her face as she soulfully serenades her new husband and beloved friends and family just visible in the mirror. Music being so important to Holly it became a central theme of this very relaxed and rustic day. The improvised band was formed from eager wedding guests and just out of frame Holly’s father accompanies her on guitar.
You can find the full story of Holly and Matthew’s wedding here
If you would like your picture to be considered for next week’s ‘Story Frame’ then please get in touch. Remember, we’re looking for images that tell the best story and must include a brief paragraph to explain the significance of the image within the context of the day.
