Effortlessly romantic and inherently moving, ‘first look’ frames are fast becoming one of our fave wedding day photographs.
Think stolen moments before the ceremony unfolds and intimate exchanges as the couple lay eyes on each other for the first time…
Forget old wives’ tales and superstitious traditions about not seeing each other before the ceremony, because these are moments made to treasure. Plus, that tradition stems from times of arranged marriages, born from a fear that a groom might change his mind upon seeing his bride!
Set before endless horizons or in quiet corners of family homes, the magic of first looks is in the montage; the story told frame-to-frame as jaws drop and eyes fill with tears.
Not sure if the first look is for you? We’ve rounded up our top shots to get you inspired, where the emotion is so real we’d recommend having a tissue box at the ready!
