The Details

When I’m photographing events I always try and keep an eye out for peripheral details. Whilst the main event principally focuses on the people and places, I make a point of keeping an eye out for small details. This might be a wedding ring or a bridesmaid’s shoes, the features of a building, a buffet or party decorations. Whatever the event,  it’s small things seen in passing that form an important part of the narrative.

A ring is always an important part of any wedding or civil ceremony
Party decorations are an important part of a celebration

Church decorations are a memorable feature
It’s not just the guests that are important, but their actions
Orders of Service and other documentation form part of a church service
A wedding I covered had an Indian buffet at the reception
Party paraphenalia
Churches provide plenty of opportunities for the observer
