There are several types of photographs, which will be taken at your wedding. a: The traditional groups, close-ups, long shots, etc. from which you chose the minimum number for which you have contracted and b: the specially requested photographs which you have asked to be taken c: photojournalistic images which are at the discretion of the photographer.
The photojournalistic images are very individual and it is best to look closely at what the photographer has done in the past to see if the style is in keeping with what you have in mind. Do remember though that exact replicas of images that you have seen may not be possible as each and every occasion is very different.
So now we come to the photographs, which 'may' be taken. We must though draw your attention to that word 'may'? It is impossible to say definitely that a picture will be taken as weddings are so un predictable - guests not being present or 'disappearing' when they are needed or vicars being uncooperative, etc. However, your photographer will be doing his best to take everything that is expected of him or her.
Generally the story begins at the Brides home, so it is best to decide what photographs you want well in advance. Remember that delays can be caused by hair stylists or florists who arrive late, not to mention the bridesmaids and matron of honor! Then, on the morning of your wedding day before your photographer arrives you should look around the room and remove anything, which you would not want to appear in the photographs?
The next opportunity for photographs is at the church, your photographer will want to capture images of the Groom and Bestman along with the Ushers and other principle guests, such as the Brides Parents, The Grooms Parents and perhaps even the Grandparents
etiquette does allow estranged partners not to stand next to each other or
even be photographed together.

Photo Quote: A thing is not what you say it is or what you photograph it to be or what you paint it to be or what you sculpt it to be. Words, photographs, paintings, and sculptures are symbols of what you see, think, and feel things to be, but they are not the things themselves. - Wynn Bullock

Brightly colored veils were worn in ancient times in many parts of the world and were considered a protection against evil spirits Greek and Roman brides for yellow or red veils (representing fire) to ward off evil spirits and demons. At one time, Roman brides were completely covered with a red veil for protection. In early European history, with the advent of arranged marriages veils served another purpose - to prevent the groom from seeing the brides' face till after the ceremony was over. Brides began to wear opaque yellow veils. Not only could the groom not see in, the bride could not see out! Therefore, the father of the bride had to escort her down the aisle and literally give the bride to the groom. Nellie Custis, the daughter of Martha Washington, is credited with wearing the first lace veil.
