Sometimes a wedding can seem like a walking, talking textbook example of Murphy’s Law, in that “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”.

The results of these faux pas, mistakes, slip ups and mini-meltdowns can range from the sublime to the ridiculous and often it’s a quick-thinking and responsive professional wedding photographer who gets the ultimate access to these spontaneous, weird and wonderful moments.

It’s well worth keeping in mind that the true measure of a great wedding celebration (much like a great marriage) is ability of the couple to laugh at a less than perfect situation, at themselves and/or each other.

Here’s to the lighter side of weddings and life... enjoy!
