So we are halfway through the year 2012 already…what a year so far! We have been involved with so many unique weddings recently I thought we’d share some of the trends and ideas we have seen that seem to be popular with our brides. Hope you enjoy it!
#1 Quirky and fun!
We always make sure that we offer our clients unique and personal photography but some wish to take that further then we have seen in previous years! We have had all sorts of requests from our Bride and Grooms this year…some really crazy! I personally think that this is a great thing as it is breaking the mould of the somewhat boring and old fashioned wedding day and turning it into a unique celebration of a couples personality. Can’t wait for the next set of crazy weddings now!
#2 Unusual Vehicles!
We have seen some really novelty vehicles this year including.. bicycles, big yellow buses, wartime jeeps, 1930’s hot rods, fairytale horse and carriages, VW Campers, chromed Aston Martin DB9’s…the list goes on! If you have a theme choose a great ride to go with it!
#3 Vintage Themes!
We have been inundated with requests for Vintage Style Photography this year and we have more requests for next year as well! From ‘make do and mend’ to ‘shabby chic’ to ‘steam punk’….we have had them all! The most popular themes have been the 1940’s and 1950’s however. I personally love vintage theme weddings and I really think that these weddings make for very relaxed and personalised wedding days.
# 4 Church Weddings!
Church Weddings seem to be on the rise for us during 2012 where in previous years civil service venues have ruled the roost. I also love church weddings as the atmosphere and lighting really help to give the photographs a traditional yet modern intimate feel.
#5 No Speeches!
This has been a real surprise this year! Quite a few of the weddings we have been involved with this year have not included the traditional speeches. Some of our clients have decided that it was too old fashioned and nerve wracking to include them at their wedding and preferred a more relaxed affair where the father of the bride, best man and groom didn’t have to sit through their dinners panicking about the dreaded speech!
We would love to hear about your wedding day and any trends that you think we have missed! Please comment on this post to add to the trends!
