Sussex Wedding Photographers. The Wedding Ceremony

This important part of the day can be very challenging and stressfull. There are no second chances and you’ve got to be ready and prepared. At these times it is best to switch to a manual mode setting so you have greater control over your camera for the perfectly exposed shot. There is often low light, so you’ll need to crank up the sensitivity to ISO 800 or ISO 1600. Keep your white balance set to auto, unless there are difficult light sources. I use a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, this aperture is good for low lighting situations, as fast lens as it's called. I try to get to the front of the church and sit so that I’m facing the bride. If you’re not allowed to sit at the front, get creative from the back of the church.

Think of the story you are trying to capture – look for shots of happy children or tears of joy from the parents, bridesmaids and guests, these all tell a story which the bride will love looking back on. Capture some wide shots of the church interior using a wideangle lens to give a sense of size and so every detail and guest is captured

Sometimes you are not allowed to use flash at the ceremony, in these situations, look for the best available light, use a fast lens at a shutter speed that doesn't create camera shake and increase the iso. Modern camera perfom excellent at high ISO levels, even as high as ISO 2000-3000. There are software tools out there that you can use to reduce noise in post and plenty of photoshop tutorials to help you too.
