A weekly series where I ask some of the world’s best wedding photographers to pick out their favourite shot from their Jewish wedding portfolio. This week it’s the turn of Marianne Taylor.
‘Getting Ready’ by Marianne Taylor
‘I’ve always loved the getting ready part of a wedding best. The charged atmosphere, the calm before it’s time to go when everything kicks into high-gear, all the pretty little details that transform a girl into a bride.
The setting where Ali was getting ready was simply perfect. A beautiful house where you could still sense the history and all the glamorous people who’ve once passed through it. We were nervously waiting for a stubborn mist to clear so that the arriving guests could take in the stunning views. When Ali was ready, her smile shining even brighter than her gorgeous gown, the sun finally broke through the mist. It was time to get married.“
If you’re a photographer and you’d like to submit for this series, please email me your chosen image, together with a paragraph or two explaining why it’s your favourite Jewish wedding photo, and the link to the full wedding if you have blogged it.
