Should you have an unplugged wedding? In this day when everyone has a smartphone, and even the most out of touch technophobes have heard of Instagram filters, it’s hard to avoid a camera lens, especially at a wedding.
Many couples are now taking the decision to make their wedding “unplugged”, asking guests to put aside their smartphones, cameras and camcorders for all or part of their wedding celebrations.
While asking guests to avoid filming or photographing wedding ceremonies is common in churches, this is now a request becoming more acknowledged in non-religious settings. Most couples allow their guests to “replug” their devices during the reception, but many will ask guests to focus their attention on the ceremony rather than the focus on their camera.
If you do want photography during your ceremony, then it’s worth considering a trusted and delegated guest, or better still, a professional wedding photographer. This would allow your guests to sit back, relax, and share your special moment with you.
