Studland Bay House wedding- The first dance
365 days of weddings | day 9
When the bride tells the photographer she’ll be back shortly as a dress change is needed for the first dance, the photographer knows it’s going to be a good first dance. 99% of the time the first dance at a wedding is a slowly slowly round in a circle dance, don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that, it is what I did. Every now and again a choreographed dance comes along and it makes for some dramatic shots. This one at Studland Bay House was one such wedding. The bride changed into a dress she could move in just for the dance and changed straight back after, now that is commitment! I love the movement in this photograph, you can see how much effort is being put into the routine.
If you are planning to put together a special first dance, make sure the photographer is in on the action so they can plan their shots accordingly, we always expect the slow smooch.
