Everyone has been known to crash a wedding ceremony, even you !! But some people take it to the extreme.
Ever been the one standing on the side in casual clothes, watching the bride arrive. Far enough away to not get in pictures but close enough that the bride can see you made the effort to come and be nosey.
While I was gate crashing a wedding ceremony today on Flagstaff Hill in Wollongong, (by accident I might add, while going for a leisurely stroll), there was a bus load of tourists that strategically parked with a good view which for one gentleman was not close enough.
He had his trousers rolled to his knees, no shoes & mobile phone in hand as he climbed the rocks to get above the guests and then proceeded to follow the bride up the aisle… And by the way he was holding the phone, I am assuming he was video recording.What do you do?
Unfortunately, this is the risk you take when having an outdoor ceremony in a public place.
Photoshop is a wonderful thing but having someone on the day to kindly ask these people to take a reasonable step back is not a rude thing to do.
A subtle gesture to ‘move along’ is a specific talent that I am known for. I try to avoid the bride focusing on the random person catching their eye rather than concentrating on not tripping up the aisle.
