The unplugged wedding – replayed.
A couple of years ago I came across this article about unplugging your wedding . Its fair to say the ideas in it really rang true with me. To cut a long story very short I love the idea of an unplugged wedding. I thought the idea worth re-visiting.
Now I’m the first to admit I’m a bit of a geek. I love technology and think it brings so many things to all our lives. The ability to take and share fantastic photos and videos, and to stay in touch where ever and when ever just being a few of those things. But (and you knew there’d be a but), I think it vital that we take time during those really important moments to be truly there. Enjoying them for your friends and family. That to me means not viewing those fantastic, once in a lifetime moments through a small viewfinder, or on the back of an LCD display. Doing that it seems your there in body, but not really in spirit. Why not put your cameras & your videos down and just enjoying being there instead.
Now unplugging your wedding isn’t for everyone. Not by any means. If you’ve announced your wedding date on facebook and all your friends are serious photographers then being honest, this idea probably isn’t going to work for you. And I love photography. (I’d be in the wrong job if I didn’t).I’d never do anything other then help your guests get the best photos they can. If you do want to unplug your wedding, or part of it – then I’d be very happy to work with you and find away we could make that happen and happen in away you and your guests were happy with. I suspect unplugging the whole day might be a step too far, so why not just unplug the ceremony.
When you book an unplugged wedding we’ll have a chat about ways we can make it work. I’ll make a statement right now, I’m 100% behind the idea and will do everything I can to make this happen. To start with for every wedding booked this way I’ll provide high resolution downloads of every photograph, for each guest you want to have them.
