Buttonholes can be tricky and don’t form part of the Royal Marines uniform. Once again, by moving the subjects the image is much cleaner as all around us are 80 guests with lots of distracting colours. Ben was happy for anyone nearby to help him put his buttonhole in, but experience has taught me that once again I don’t need to just photograph what’s going on, I can raise the importance of a moment and get a better image at the same time so I found the bestman and called him over. They had a fun moment together and I was able to capture that for them. This is what I mean when I explain that I photograph a wedding from the inside, as a friend might, and not simply as an observer.
