Unplugged Weddings in Essex and Suffolk

Unplugged weddings are talked about quite often. But what is an unplugged wedding and what are the benefits of having one?

An unplugged wedding is one where you and your guests "unplug" from the outside world just for a part of your day. One where you all switch off your tablets, mobile phones and any other technology so that you can all be present in the moment.

It is about you being able to look down the aisle without seeing a sea of mobile devices and camers pointing at you. It is about you being able to see the emotions, the smiles and feeling the love in the faces of your friends and family.

For them, it is about being present in your moment. Rather than taking photos and uploading them onto Facebook or Instagram in an instant, they are free to concentrate on you and your day. Watching your day through their own eyes rather than through some device.

With social media an everyday part of our lives, do you want to turn your phone on at the end of the day to have hundres of notifications of hundreds of photos that you have been "tagged" in? This is your  wedding day. It is you  who should choose what is shared and who it is shared with. 

You have invited your family and friends to your wedding because you want them to enjoy your day and be a part of it, not so that they can be your "wedding photographer" for the day. You have invited them because you want them to actually be there in person and not hidden behind a phone. After all, you have hired a professional to take your wedding photographs for you.

I am not suggesting you ban your guests from using their phones and cameras. I am suggesting you ask them to understand that you have hired a professional photographer because you want them to "be there" and enjoy the moment. Use signs like the one in the image to ask your guests to not use their devices whilst the ceremony is taking place, or add a little message to your wedding invitations. You can find lots of ideas on Unplugged Weddings on Pinterest.

You may think I am only advocating unplugged weddings because I want to sell photographs to your guests after your day, but that is not my motivation here. I provide a private on line gallery which you can give your guests access to where they can download high resolution files of your day and print them off themselves for free. No, my motivation is the fact that I want to take photographs of you "feeling the love" and photographs of your guests with wonderful natural smiles, laughter and love on their faces. I don't want photographs of them hiding behind an electronic device.

It will be time spent wisely and, if you hover your mouse pointer over the images on Your Day Begins, The Main Event, The Details, All In One Day and Just for Fun, you will get a real "feel" for the true story telling nature of my photography. If you are looking for photographs taken at the wedding of a friend or family member, please go to the Client Area. Thinking about investing in a Wedding Album but not sure if it's right for you? Take a look at my Wedding Albums page for some friendly advice. To see what your wedding album could be like, why not take a look at some of my example layouts. You can find them under Album Designs, (PLEASE NOTE: To be able to view them in their full glory, you will need to have Flash Player installed on your device). To truly appreciate the outstanding quality of these bespoke albums I believe you have to examine the "real thing", so why not get in touch and arrange a viewing? I will be spending a lot of time with you during your day, so you can find out more about me and my relaxed but professional approach to telling your story here. You will be able to find the answers to most of your questions in my Top 10 Q&A and More Q&A sections. The Top 10 section gives short answers to some very popular questions, whilst the More section gives more detailed answers and includes even more questions you might be thinking about asking. These are the questions you should  be asking your wedding photographer, so please invest some time in reading them and the answers. It will be time well spent and should help you choose the photographer that is right for you and your big day. I have had a lot of couples asking for information about "Unplugged Weddings" recently. You can find out what they mean and how to go about arranging one on my Unplugged Weddings page. I have provided details of wedding photography packages with prices, a quick & easy comparison chart to see what is included, details of your Payment Options and details of my Terms & Conditions. For those with wedding guests who are stuck for ideas on what to buy you for a wedding present, I have a Gift Registry to make it really easy for them to make a contribution towards your wedding photography package. If you already have your photos but haven't yet bought a wedding album, I offer a Wedding Album Design Service. Providing you have wrtten permission to print your photos for your own use, I can design a bespoke wedding album that is just perfect for you. If you cannot see a package that meets your requirements, pleaseso that we can have a chat about your needs and design a bespoke package that is  simply perfect for you. For those wondering what they are paying for when they hire a professional wedding photographer you can find out more in my Investment  section. So, if your Wedding Photography is important to you and you are looking for an experienced wedding photographer who takes amazing creative photographs without you even realising he is there, you have come to the right place. The only time you will notice I'm there is when you need to.
