#3 ASK YOUR GUESTS TO UNPLUG
If you have a professional wedding photographer (and videographer!) booked for your wedding, I would recommend having an ‘unplugged’ wedding ceremony.
I see hundreds of wedding photographs every week, and a worrying number of these are potentially amazing images that are ruined by iPads held in the air, and wedding guests crowding the aisle in front of the professional photographer.
A polite notice on a sign at the ceremony entrance should be enough to persuade guests to leave the aisle clear so that the pros can do their jobs and make sure every shot is a keeper! And once your photographer has captured the most important shots, your guests can snap away!
