First of all, what the heck is an unplugged ceremony?
Picture this: it’s the moment you’ve dreamed of all your life. You’re walking down the aisle, about to marry the love of your life, surrounded by all your loved ones. They’re looking on at you in wonder and awe, having never seen you look so beautiful, or so happy. And then one by one, out come the phones. The iPads. The cameras. Soon, you’re wading through a sea of devices, all blinking and flashing at you, with every loved one now just a body with a phone for a face!
An unplugged ceremony means no phones, no cameras, na-da! Your guests are on complete gadget lock-down, allowing you to have your moment and for them to be present in that moment with you.
Your ceremony is the most sacred and special part of your wedding and really is the highlight around which the whole day is based. I think couples get so caught up in the excitement of the planning process that the ceremony details can often sadly become an afterthought.
As a wedding photographer, I’ve come across many of these scenarios and the feedback I regularly receive from couples is they regret not telling their guests to put their phones and cameras away for this part of the day.
