The Wedding Speeches

By Rob Dodsworth @Rob_Dodsworth

The speeches at a wedding are one part of the day I really look forward to. They are often full of emotion and I love capturing not only those delivering the speeches but the responses to them – the laughter, the tears and more often than not, a good dose of embarrassment!

The speeches always deliver some really touching and heartfelt moments. The father of the bride, offering his remembrances of the bride’s childhood and wishing his daughter and her husband a happy life together, often results in some really beautiful interactions – mom will often be struggling to hold back the tears. The groom’s speech can also result in some really lovely moments, a tender touch of a hand, or, a simple look between the groom and his bride. And of course, the speech, traditionally saved until last, will almost always result in the groom burying his head in his hands as his, so called ‘best man’ does his absolute best to embarrass him, regaling guests with tales about the groom as a young man, or, what they got up to on the stag-do (sometimes accompanied by photographic evidence!).

It’s my job, as your photographer, to capture these moments, moments that you might otherwise have missed. These are the images that when you come to look back on them, will help to tell the story of your special day – who’s laughing, who’s crying and who’s in an absolute fit of giggles!
