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.

Wedding Trivia:GARTER AND BRIDAL BOUQUET TOSS
In parts of Europe during the 14th contrary, having a piece of the bride's clothing was thought to bring good luck. Guests would literally destroy the brides dress by ripping off pieces of fabric. In order to prevent this, brides began throwing various items to the guests - the garter belt being one of the items.In order to avoid this problem, it became customary in the 14th century for the bride to toss her garter to the men. Sometimes the men would get drunk, become impatient, and try to remove the garter ahead of time. Therefore, the custom evolved for the groom to remove and toss the garter. With that change the bride started to toss the bridal bouquet to the unwed girls of marriageable age. Tradition says that whoever catches the bouquet shall be the next to marry. She keeps the bouquet to ensure this destiny.
