5 Things to Remember When Walking Down the Aisle

From the nervous smiles to the happy tears, there's something amazing about the walk down the aisle. If you're currently planning your wedding, here are five things to remember from a photographer's perspective to ensure your walk down the aisle is as memorable as can be. 

Take Your Time

As a wedding photographer who has witnessed countless walks down the aisle, one piece of advice I always give to couples is to take your time. This is your moment to shine, to savour every step as you make your way toward your partner. Don't rush it! Take a deep breath, soak in the moment and you can walk slower than you think.

This also applies to anybody walking down before you. Don't be afraid to have some trial runs to get a good idea of timing between your bridesmaids, making sure each one gets a moment as they walk down and it's easier to capture their photo without being closely stacked together.

Smile and Enjoy the Moment

Nothing lights up a photograph quite like a genuine smile. So, as you walk down the aisle, remember to smile and enjoy the moment. Let this show as you take in the love and support of your friends and family and seeing your partner for the first time. This is your time to shine, so embrace it with a big, beautiful smile.

Keep Your Eyes on Your Partner

Amidst all the excitement and emotions of the day, it's easy to get distracted. But as you walk down the aisle, remember to keep your eyes on your partner. This is the person you've chosen to spend forever with, and nothing else matters at this moment.

Breathe and Stay Relaxed

Walking down the aisle can be nerve-wracking, but remember to breathe and stay relaxed. Take each step with confidence.

Trust Your Photographer

Last but certainly not least, trust your photographer to capture the special moments of your walk down the aisle.
