What NOT to Do During a Wedding Speech:

The Power of Unplugged Wedding Speeches.

As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing countless memorable moments, but there’s somethings you should NOT to do during a wedding speech. In today’s tech-savvy world, where smartphones are all the rage, not encouraging unplugged speeches can lead to authentic moments being ruined.

Picture this: the bride’s father stands up to deliver a heartfelt speech, and instead of fumbling with his phone for notes, he confidently holds a crafted card that matches the wedding stationery. As he speaks, there’s a connection between him and the guests, an unfiltered emotion that is simply unmatched. These are the moments that make my job as a wedding photographer truly rewarding.

When speeches are delivered without the distraction of screens, guests are fully present and engage with the speaker. As a result, the photos captured during these moments are free from the visual clutter of devices. The authenticity and intimacy of these images are simply priceless, and they serve as a testament to the power of an unplugged atmosphere.

Your wedding guest will stay more contact with you.

The benefits of an unplugged approach extend far beyond the realm of photography. By setting the stage for a tech-free zone during speeches, couples can create a more intimate experience for everyone. Guests are encouraged to be fully present, to actively listen and connect with the speaker, and to engage with the emotions of the moment. This fosters an atmosphere of genuine connection and shared experience, which is what weddings are all about.

I’ve found that an unplugged wedding speech not only enhances the emotional impact of the moment but also elevates the overall wedding experience. The ripple effect of this simple yet powerful decision can be felt throughout the reception.

If you’re a couple preparing for your special day, consider an unplugged wedding speech. Encourage your speakers to opt for a physical card over a phone, by doing so you’re not only prioritising authentic and moments but also setting the stage for an experience that will be remembered for all the right reasons.
