It may be the most important part of the biggest day of your life. Sure you can spend thousands on transported peonies from Asia or have an 8 tier butter-cream frosted cake, an Ellie Saab wedding gown and Maroon 5 playing your favourite Whitney Houston song. But none of those matter if you can’t capture them for the perfect photo album that can last a lifetime!
The best photographers can book up months in advance, and every Wedding Planner knows, they're the first thing on your to do list. But how do you know what type of style you want? Well, here is a selection of the best captured wedding moments from around the world, to inspire and help you along your way to the biggest decision of your life... just kidding, not really.
Each year The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) holds their awards..four times! (There’s a lotta hitching going on). Selecting and awarding the best images from the big day, from the obligatory 'Bride and Groom Portrait' to the unconventional ‘Kids will be kids’. Here are a couple of our favourites...
