The wedding first dance is one of the most ‘on the edge of your seat’ moments for a wedding photographer. You may have everything set up and ready, lighting looks great, all ready to go, and then boom… the DJ has dropped the lights completely, it’s near pitch black and they are announcing the couple’s first dance. You only get one go at this…
This is where your photographer’s technical skill and experience will shine through… or not! The first dance is unpredictable but brilliant and is one of my favourite moments to photograph. They can be intimate & emotional, grand & dramatic, fun & joyful; each one is so different.
Here are a few of my favourites from a few recent weddings, including some from the fantastic Alverton Manor in Truro, a stellar wedding venue with a gorgeous main hall.
