“ Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. ”
As a bride, your wedding is a celebration that’s focused on you, but it’s not just for you. It’s for your groom, your parents, your siblings, your best friends, your grandparents… That’s why we have a tradition of inviting guests – because those are people you want to share the occasion with.
However, the truth is that all eyes are on you. Wrapped around veil, shining in your white wedding dress, it is not easy to take someone’s eyes off you. This is no exception for your photographer. Your photographer follows you all through the wedding day, trying to capture your emotions and qualities – a smile, a gesture, an act.
Until at least the middle of the 19th century, the bride generally wore her best dress, whatever color it was, or if the bride was well-off, she ordered a new dress in her favorite color and expected to wear it again.
The white wedding dress that is usually worn, is a tradition that started by Queen Victoria, who wore a white court dress for her wedding.
In many Asian cultures, red is usual for brides, as this colour indicates vibrance and health and has over time been associated with brides.
