The calm before the storm, also known as bridal prep time! I love the time I spend with the bridal party on the morning of a wedding. It's an excellent chance to get to know people close to the bride and for those to get used to having me hanging around. Not everyone wants photography during this part of the day, but most of my brides do, so if it's not for you, then it's not a problem. I love this image of Emma and her mum. This image was captured mid-morning during my time with the bridal party. Emma was pretty much ready, minus the dress and shoes, and she was looking fantastic. Her mum was like every other mum on the morning of her daughter's wedding, happy, emotional and immensely proud. A beautiful moment.
