Enough With the Photos ...
So ... small rant here.
Went to a wedding yesterday and throughout the whole ceremony, the couple in front of us were completely absorbed taking photographs. It was to the point that it really impacted our ability to enjoy the ceremony. They were holding up iPads, at one point standing up and then moved to the aisle and were constantly showing each other what they had just taken.
I don't advocate for telling adults to be in the moment and prohibiting guests taking photos, but I did express my frustration to the rude photo taking couple after the ceremony. They told me that they weren't told to avoid doing so by the Officiant so we shouldn't have had an issue with it. At that point, I just shook my head and walked away. Some people just don't see the forest through the trees.
I would have moved had their been extra seats and if it wouldn't have caused a commotion.
I really hope that they got the shots that they were looking for and will look back on those shots as the only memories they have of that ceremony.
Edited - to make it clear that I did not talk to the bride and groom about the behaviour but to the rude photo taking couple. I would never tell the bride and groom something like this. This was out of their control.
