Focus On… Tears and Laughter from Grooms!

By Claire

I was read­ing You & Your Wed­ding mag­a­zine yes­ter­day, and look­ing at the real wed­dings in there. The printed mag­a­zines allo­cate less space to their real cou­ples’ fea­tures than most of the top blogs do — it’s all part of the busi­ness model (read more of my thoughts on wed­ding mag­a­zines). It means they show lots of images of ‘things’ and details in their real wed­ding fea­tures, and very few pho­tos of the bride and groom, or of the key moments in a wed­ding day.

I think this is a shame. Plan­ning your cer­e­mony and recep­tion down to the finest detail is loads of fun — choos­ing table dec­o­ra­tions and quirky signs, buy­ing jars of sweets and plan­ning flow­ers is all great. But when you look back on your wed­ding day in years to come, it’s the mag­i­cal moments you’ll remem­ber: the walk down the aisle, the moment your eyes meet… and the look on his face, whether it’s a crazy grin or hold­ing back tears.

Can you imag­ine how the moment will play out on your big day? Here are some of the most beau­ti­ful images of emo­tional grooms to make you smile, cry and look for­ward to your wed­ding day. Enjoy…

All of these images have been sent to me by pho­tog­ra­phers in the UK. I received dozens of sub­mis­sions for this fea­ture (and for the Focus On… series of blog posts in gen­eral) and I’d like to thank all of the pho­tog­ra­phers who shared their images for us to enjoy. The pic­tures shown here are my per­sonal favourites, and I encour­age you to see more on the pho­tog­ra­phers’ own blogs. You’ll find links below.

With thanks for these very spe­cial moments to some of my favorite UK wed­ding photographers:
