It must be every little girl’s dream to be a bridesmaid. The excitement starts from the day she is asked by the bride to take this special role. From being able to wear the most beautiful outfits, to having their hair done and holding the loveliest of flowers, each moment is one to savour. Looking back at the weddings I have photographed over the last year, there are some truly memorable photographs of bridesmaids. This photograph, taken at a Cambridge wedding last year, is one of my favourites. The young bridesmaids are looking at the bride as she steps out of the car. The way they’re standing gripping their posies and their expressions are all completely natural. What I especially like is that a favourite doll also makes an appearance, just hidden in the older bridesmaid’s arm!
As a London wedding photographer, one who enjoys documenting these moments, I want to dedicate this week’s “Why do I love this Photography?” to all the bridesmaid. Cherish that moment of pride and joy!
