Lets dive a little deeper…
Wedding Centrepiece problems
A very traditional part to most wedding days is the speeches, with the iconic bastmans/bestwoman’s speech where the groom gets an absolute grilling from their best friend in front of all their friends and family.
We love wedding speeches and capturing those candid moments of embarrassment, laughter and sometimes sadness shared amongst the wedding couples wedding party. However, wedding centrepieces can become a problem in regards to both lighting and overall wedding photography.
The magnificently tall wedding centrepieces that you have chosen to style your room with, although beautiful, are a wedding photographers nightmare when it comes to lighting and wedding photography. Those grand flower centrepieces create the perfect obstacle that creates obscure patterns of light on your faces and not to mention a barrier between me and you.

The smaller centrepieces just make our lives easier when trying to capture those amazing candid moments.
