First Look Photos - An Alternative to Walking Down the Aisle

A huge wedding trend emerging in the wedding scene is the "First Look" or "First Touch" Photo. Weddings for the most part are still pretty traditional nation when it comes to weddings and one pretty basic one is that the groom should not see his bride until they meet at the top of the aisle. But times are changing, and now we have...

Times are changing, and now we have weddings in all shapes and forms, and increasingly people are breaking the boundaries of tradition (we Simple El'egance Events love some rebellion!), so why not few moments to see your other half before walking up the aisle? A very special moment between the two of you without all of the eyes of a room full of guests. It could also be a blessing in disguise to calm all those nerves and jitters about walking up the aisle.

The outcome could be magical, just have a look for yourself at those who choose to do and capture 'A First Look'...

How fun is this balloon first look? Such a cute idea!

A first look could also be incorporated into the big day if you and your loved one wish to walk up the aisle together.

This could work particularly well for brides whose Dad is no longer with them, or where there is a bit of family politics (we all know that kind of thing!) or even for couples who are eloping!

A first look may not be for everyone, however, if you like the idea but feel you don't want to ruin the surprise you could always just add a little element in but not go the whole way, like having your groom blindfolded, or the first touch like these guys, a quick embrace from the other side of the door or wall.

This stunning first look is an example of what your photographers can help you and your partner to achieve, the couple decided to have a first touch before the ceremony
