“Welcome, friends and family! This evening we encourage you all to capture our wedding ceremony with your hearts, without the distraction of technology. We simply ask that you turn off your phones and put your cameras away. We spent good money on our amazing photographer – let’s make them work for their money!”
This kind of introduction at an Unplugged Wedding is definitely the norm these days. THANKFULLY we are reverting back to the days where smiling, happy faces watch as the Bride is being escorted to her Groom, rather than faces being hidden behind mobiles that line the aisle.
At a stunning Margaret River wedding I attended last year the Bride and Groom had chosen an Unplugged Ceremony with a difference. There wasn’t even a professional photographer in sight. Instead a drone buzzed above our heads capturing the moment from every angle.
There are definitely a wide range of arguments for and against a drone, but I must admit: I do love the fact that a drone can hover above the scene, making it into somewhat of an ethereal shoot; a beautiful once-in-a-life-time memory.
For those that choose to wed in a truly amazing location, whether it be a garden, in the country or on the beach, a drone provides an opportunity to really capture the essence of the event, by capturing the stunning landscape that the Bride and Groom have chosen for their special moment.
Whether you decide to integrate a photographer, a videographer and/or a drone into your wedding plans we truly hope that the day itself is an unforgettable one!
