British Photographer Took Hilariously Unusual Wedding Photos And People Love Them
When people usually dream of getting dazzling and mesmerizing wedding photographs from their special day, Ian Weldon aims for something on the opposite side of the spectrum. This British wedding photographer, Ian Weldon, refuses to call himself so: he’s simply a man who loves to take pictures during the ceremony.
He knows the reality of the wedding: preparations are chaotic, the couple is stressed out with so little time to stop and eat or rest. Children hate to be confined in a place for more than 5 minutes and people can’t help getting a little crazier than they planned.
Even so, every single moment is precious – it’s that one day you wished won’t fly so fast. Ian Weldon is there to be that photographer that helps you realize that, yeah, you wished it flew that fast.
His style is ‘democratic photography’ where everyone in every single frame matters.
It was messy, but it was the reality that mattered to the family.
When other professional photographers take the best pictures, Ian takes the ones that reflect the reality of weddings.
The kids can really make a mess of themselves – and everyone around them. But that’s also why they are fun to have around!
And these pictures that brides will definitely say ‘NO’ but, hey, they are too funny to delete!
And while parties are fun, guests can be knocked out from that and the journey.
Ian has opened an exhibition titled “I am not a wedding photographer” in London’s Martin Parr Foundation. Ian’s works are not aesthetics or even beautiful when it comes to valuing them based on results alone. But what Ian did has become something precious in the eyes of his clients. They contain moments that other photographers don’t usually capture!
