We in the UK are actually very conservative when it comes to wedding photography. Many couples want images that are relaxed and natural. The tradition of formal wedding photography is based on very sound reasoning. All of the guests will have their own expectation of “wedding photography”. Great Aunt’s, seldom seen, travelled a long way to be there and there is an expectant hierarchy about who will be in which pictures. With all of this expectation it becomes extremely difficult to get away from traditional and so even the most adventurous of clients get drawn back to compiling a shoot list that differs little from their parents or grand-parents.
