Behind the veil

Purley, London

This is not the first time I post this photo online. It still attracts me so much, so I decided to tell the story behind this photo. Perhaps the bride cannot remember when she has this photo took, because it was took in spontaneous way. Most of the time, wedding photography means reportage, snapshot, since everything happening so fast. Reportage style, however, does not equal to ‘not artistic’.

This took by the time the bride just arrived the church. She stood right next to the door, behind the flower girl, page boy and bridesmaids. The bride arrived slightly late and tried to calm down. Wind came in and just kissed her veil. Perhaps I have forgot this shot after the whole busy day. I discovered it after I opened it up on the computer screen. Cropped it a bit and blew it black and white. Voila!
