Groom Singing at Idlewyld Wedding

Weddings elicit intense emotions. At this Idlewyld Inn wedding in London Ontario the groom hired an orchestra to accompany t while he is singing a song composed by him. 

One of my questions to the couples whose weddings I photograph is if they have any surprise prepared for their Big Day. I prefer that they provide me a list of surprises beforehand so I can prepare. As they say, if you don't plan, you plan to fail. 

On the morning of the wedding day, the groom told me that he intends to sing a song to his bride right after the speeches and cake cutting. As I mentioned, he composed this song. 

I was ready to take the shot, but not ready for the emotion that song caused. The bride started tearing op and I followed. I have to admit that I often shed a tear, especially during father's speeches. I am myself a father and my little daughter will one day be a bride, so every time I hear the father's speech, I am overwhelmed with emotion. This time was no different. 

To add an element of interest, I placed some battery operated Christmas lights which create this splendid red foreground bokeh. 

The red globes of light beautifully complement the blue background and make this photograph stand out. 

Location: London, Ontario.
