Let me see those faces!

I love technology. It’s the very reason I am able to share today’s tip with you and all the apps like Instagram and Tik Tok provide an excellent way for couples to capture some of the behind scenes of their wedding day. But (oh, there is a but!!)…

If there ever is a day to ask friends and family to unplug as much as possible from technology and be wholly present with you, it’s your wedding day.

Let me paint you a picture.

A Bride has just stepped into her dress, feeling beautiful as the clock inches closer to when she’ll be walking down the aisle towards her soon-to-be spouse. She is having a moment and turns around ready to have her maid of honour button things up and share this with her, only to see her friend is distracted by something on her phone. Knife to the heart.

It’s painful to witness this so I can only imagine how that Bride would feel. 💔
