Hi there, we're Steve and Tania! We met many moons ago, fell in love and soon discovered a mutual passion for photography. Over time this passion grew and eventually led us to photograph our very first wedding - an experience we really enjoyed. For us, love and photography seemed to go hand in hand, so wedding photography became a perfect fit. We found working together came easy and we naturally complemented each other's style. Since then we've not looked back!
.We are local wedding photographers based in Haywards Heath, Sussex. If you're looking to get married in the sussex area then please contact us.
From start to finish Steve and Tania were so professional, creative, helpful and were so nice to be around.
Whether you love or hate dancing, the first dance is a tradition that always produces some fabulous photos and for those couple of minutes you will be the focus of everyone's attention.
Apparently it wasn't always this way. In 1922, Emily Post, an American author famous for writing about 'Etiquette', wrote that newlyweds join the dancing after their guests and "simply dance with one another first before moving on to other partners". It wasn't given particular attention or treated as a performance.
Today, however, it starts with just the two of you and you will be the centre of attention, so it's a good idea to think about what kind of dance to go for.
Some couples choose to learn a routine with many dance instructors now offering a "first dance" service.
Others will be content swaying slowly from side to side and just enjoying the intimacy of the moment together
There is in fact a specific order for the traditional wedding first dance however any part of it may be changed according to needs and tastes of the couple. According to etiquette, the newlyweds start the dancing first, then the groom should dance with his new mother-in-law, then his own mother. Meanwhile, the bride should dance with her new father-in-law and then with her father.
Dancing with my father
These traditions vary according to the couple and their own family, so depending on your own circumstances, the bride may choose to dance with her mother.
Whatever your choice of dance and music, the most important thing is to enjoy the moment. And, if you want to dance all evening, the next important thing is to choose your footwear carefully, or kick off those shoes!
