The Flower Girl
365 Days of Weddings - Day 3
Should you have a Flower Girl? Children at a wedding is sometimes a debate when organising a wedding. Financially, you need to feed more people that will probably leave early in the evening and the screaming baby during your vows is most peoples nightmares, mostly for the parents of said child but….. Children are the most natural subjects in the world, they don’t have any problems being in front of the camera, some of which is having grown up in an era where photography is an everyday occurrence and partly because of their innocence. This rubs off on the adults surrounding them. When I reach the Documentary part of a wedding Children really help people drop their guard. Who doesn’t answer the imaginary phone when a 2-year-old gives it to you!
In this photograph, the flower girl had retreated to a room on her own to have a breather while the final crescendo of preparation was going on next door. I snuck in and hid behind her favourite rocking horse and asked what was out the window. Such a classic look to this photograph. I love it!
