The Best Of Wedding Photography : Wedding Highlights

It’s time to take a stroll through some of my personal favourites, the shots I feel really show off the best of wedding photography from Belinda McCarthy Photography. Here, on this section you’ll find each post features a single image, giving a particular insight into what I find so special about the photograph, and why it really captures my aims and ambitions when I photograph weddings.

This section will be updated on a regular basis, showing off images from not only the documentary wedding photography work I undertake, but from all parts of the wedding day – from bridal prep, to guests, wedding decor details,flowers – anything, in fact, which I feel stands out as a lovely image with a particular story to tell. After all, weddings are stories, and our job as wedding photographers is to accurately capture and tell that story.

Don’t forget, the main wedding blog on the website is where to go for in-depth images of latest weddings, so make sure you head over there too!

The Best Of: Pageboys

I have SO MUCH LOVE for this image, photographed at Orchardleigh House last year. I mean, a ridiculous amount of love. My favourite wedding photographs are always those which freeze a specific moment in time in a true documentary way, a moment so fleeting that there...

The Best Of: Greetings

I fell in love with this image as soon as I edited it. Photographed at a marquee wedding reception in West Somerset, it was a sunny day, with difficult light. The bride and groom portrait photography had just been completed after returning from the wedding ceremony at...

The Best Of : Cake Eating Dinosaurs

Well, the title says it all, doesn't it?! I think there should be more dinosaurs at weddings... and of course, they should get some wedding cake, too. If you look a little more closely, you'll perhaps see that this isn't ACTUALLY a real dinosaur, although the disguise...

The Best Of: Confetti Shots

The 'confetti shot' is one that's asked for at nearly all weddings, and normally involves some element of management and setup by the photographer and the wedding party. For example, the bride and groom may exit the church yard to the car though a 'confetti corridor'...

The Best Of : Wedding Games

If you're having a marquee or outdoor wedding, there's nothing more fun than a few garden games. Sometimes, though, you need a bit more room... as was the case with this fabulous marquee wedding in Somerset, where their games required the use of a particularly large...

The Best Of : Grandparents

This is one of my all time favourite shots of grandparents taken at a wedding... and no more so than because it's taken on the dancefloor, during a silent disco! Have you ever been to a silent disco? No? Then it's when all the guests on the dancefloor wear headphones,...

Best Of: Father & Daughter Wedding Dance

The Father & Daughter wedding dance at the evening reception is a tradition which seems to be dying out, and for me, it's a real shame, as it's such a beautiful moment to watch and to photograph. Tradition states that this takes place immediately after the bride...

The Best Of : Bridesmaids

I have always been seriously in love with this image. It says so many things to me, and like most of my favourite wedding images, it's been about being at the right place at the right time. Taking an opportunity offered is everything, and it's indicative of what...

The Best Of : Quiet Moments Before The Wedding

Weddings are all about friends and family and love and laughter; about spending time with those whose company you enjoy most. It's about dancing and talking and being in a huge crowd of all the faces you know best. We, as wedding photographers, are there to capture...

The Best Of : Children at the Church Wedding

Photographing a wedding ceremony can be fraught with challenges, even when it's for the nicest, most relaxed of clergy. After all, it's a wedding photographer's job to always remember that above all other times during a wedding day, this time is the most important to...

The Best Of : Wedding Playtime

Weddings aren't just all about love and romance and all that jazz. The best weddings, are also about good, old fashioned fun. After all, when you get a bunch of people together who you love and enjoy being with, who wouldn't want to make it a truly, delightfully fun...

The Best Of: A Moment To Yourself

Weddings are very public happenings, full of people, full of things going on, where the guests are almost constantly in the company of others. However, there's something about a wedding that also allows people to truly be themselves. It may be that as they are...
