For Those of Advancing Years Who Have Found Love

Senior Citizen Wedding Photography – Photographing Older Couple’s Marriages

 

Older Wedding Couple First Dance

I love this photograph I took of senior newly-weds during the first dance. Their love really shone through…


Older Couples – Why Get Married?  Why Now?:

During the course of my time as a wedding photographer, I am usually approached by young couples to cover their special day.  The general age range requiring my services is usually somewhere between 24 and 4o.  Being based between London and Cardiff means they are often Londoners too.

But I love it when the older, more senior couple contacts me.  These are often couples that have been there before or have just found their true love later in life.  Sometimes couples in their 50’s or 60’s decide they will marry after cohabiting most of their lives.  According to the Office for National Statistics, the percentage of over 50’s who decide to do this is rapidly increasing.

Mature weddings may also be on the increase for financial reasons.  And as a professional wedding photographer, I am thankful for any couple old or young who wish to use my services.  There are all sorts to think about when picking the right photographer for you.  Here’s my guide to choosing your perfect wedding photographer.

It’s so lovely to witness the older generation so obviously in love and showing affection at their wedding ceremony.


Senior Wedding Couples – Photographic Requirements:

All weddings are special and certainly help me to remember just how much love exists around us in this often chaotic world.  More senior couples have different priorities than younger couples getting married.

Firstly, many older couples planning a wedding will be financing the day themselves. This means that depending on their budget, priorities may well be different from younger couples whose parents are footing the bill.  Often-times this results in a smaller, more intimate wedding.  I love small weddings as well as large.  Although I like to be discreet and shoot from a distance, it’s also nice to feel more included as I am when less guests are present.  I can get my teeth into photographing individuals more.

Sometimes the weddings are larger.  Older adults often have children (and maybe grandchildren) which means a larger family and more people to invite.  Possibly more friends – work colleagues past and present.


Gay Wedding at Newham Town Hall, London

The gay wedding of Quentin & Nigel at Newham Town Hall was a lovely event. They had been together many years but decided to get married when the law changed concerning LGBT weddings.


Older LGBT & Gay Wedding Photography Couples:

It took a long time and much campaigning for gay weddings to become legal in the UK.  Many mature gay couples – previously unable to get married – are now in a situation where they can decide whether to tie the knot or not.  Thankfully many decide to go for it and I have photographed numerous senior gay wedding ceremonies and indeed the rest of the day.  Here is my page dedicated to LGBT+ Wedding Photography.

 

Engaged Mature Couples – What Can I Offer You?:

Obviously I try to meet with all couples in the before taking a booking.  This will give me a chance to assess what you need and how I can help.  I take into account all your requests and preferences and treat the occasion sensitively and with good attention to detail.

I aim to capture as much of the atmosphere and the essence of love between two people as I possibly can.  With people that meet their partner from middle-age onwards, there is often a sense of gratitude and satisfaction that they have at last found that special someone.  They usually know where they’re heading and have a rich history of experiences to draw from.  This is very easy for the photographer to work with.

Finally, I have to be sensitive to the changing needs of wedding couples as they get older.  At one of my first mature weddings I asked the bride if she was sure that she didn’t want me to cover her preparations.  “I don’t think people really want to see a fifty-something older-bride slap on her make-up!” she replied.  I diplomatically began photographing the guests arriving instead…
