Is anyone getting married at the Nazareth Chapel?

So I was going through my list of different shots I want my photographer to take. And I remembered reading something about our photographer has to be up in the balcony taking pictures. But I want the pictures of my flower girl, ring bearer and also a good shot of my husband-to-be's face when I walk down the aisle. Is it true that the photographer can't take pictures of the ceremony? Can my guest take pictures?

    For what I can remember without having everything here with me is that only the photographer is allowed in the balcony. Meaning that they dont have to tke pictures from there but they are one of the few people allowed up there. HTH

    I'm not, but we did look into it at one point.  I agree with Amalaika.... I think ONLY the photog can be in the balcony.  Check with the Chapel to make sure though! :)

    I'm getting married there... your photographer can take any photos he/she wants during the ceremony from anywhere you want. They can be up in the balcony if you want them to be... you just can't seat guests up there... not that you would want to. Not sure where you read that, but there aren't any rules about photographers that I know of.

    Yup, I'm getting married there too. The rule is that only the photographer is allowed up there, not that they have to be up there.

    I see...thanks ladies. I was worried for a sec. I meet with them this week. Does anyone know if they would compromise on taking some pictures at the nazareth chapel after the ceremony? I know we can take pictures before the ceremony, but I really dont want my fiance to see me before the wedding. But we would also like to take pictures together at the chapel.

    FI and I asked about this too because we originally didn't want to see each other before hand. The coordinator told me that as long as we (and the decorations) are out of the chapel by the assigned time, we can take pictures afterwards. However, the grounds are already going to be assigned to/in use by the next couple during and after our ceremony so the pictures would have to be inside the chapel. Ultimately, FI and I decided that it was worth it to see each other before hand so that we could have plenty of time for the pictures we want and so that we can spend the majority of the day together
