The Unplugged Wedding Ceremony – should we have one?

YES is the answer!  An unplugged wedding ceremony means all guests are asked to keep their electronic devices turned off and to not take photos/video while the ceremony is in process.

We know it’s an exciting day and everyone wants to capture those special moments on their device and tag and share instantly, but it’s also really important that family and friends are actually present during your wedding ceremony. 

Apart from that, you have paid a professional photographer/videographer to be there and having the guests devices hovering in front of the photographer/videographer will quite simply ruin your photos. As the ceremony starts, guests tend to get in the isle (photo-bomber style) to get a better view for their photo and the photographer/videographer is forced to take the focus off you and navigate around guests and ask if they can move away from the isle while trying capture the emotion of the ceremony and importantly the first kiss. 

It is also lovely to have some candid photos of your guests emotions during your ceremony, a tear, a smile and a big belly laugh make for amazing candid images.

How to Unplug? The first tip is to have a sign made which tells guests that the wedding is unplugged.  Another tip is to tell guests your wedding is unplugged by adding it to your wedding ceremony program or even put it in your wedding invitations so guests are well aware ahead of the day. Your celebrant or priest can also remind guests that devices are to be turned off during this special part of the wedding day.

We are certainly not saying nobody can take photos on your wedding day but it is highly recommended that during important moments, guests keep their devices away and enjoy being a guest.

Check out the beautiful moments captured FOREVER without a device in sight!
