the bride departs

  1. An absolute delight. The two gentlemen have lost their heads, but who cares? I feel privileged to have been invited to join in on the fun. How do you do it?

  2. ‘The two gentlemen have lost their heads, but who cares?’

    They’ve lost them with such precision, though. Adds to the humor.

  3. The inclusion of the bride and groom top left provides an anchor for that section of the image. I like the Marilyn Monroe Moment which provides that special bit of spontaneity in the image. My initial gripe when I first opened the image was the shadow across the central brides maids ankles which gave them a folded up feel. However now I have found other things to look at.

  4. The heads may annoy some but I’m ok with them missing, it’s like the woman know and are having a laugh about it.

    The couple in the back are an added extra but it woudl of been nice if there was no pram or tree in that area.

    Well handled contrasty light.

  5. Well, really, in such circumstances a gentleman might easily lose his head.

    What I really like about this is the baby buggy. Completes the story.

  6. Rex – are you an ankle man?

  8. Lots of pairs. Steps in and steps out. Well handled contrast given a bright day. What’s not to like? There’s also a lot of overlapping of the elements within this except between the Gentlemen and the pram. That gap is also the same width as the stone pillar on the far leading out steps. Not sure the significance but it has kept me puzzled for a good time.

  9. Many thanks for the comments. We were at Aberglasney Gardens near Carmarthen and saw this post-wedding shoot going on, which we watched from the cafe. Afterwards, as I went through an arch in the stone wall I came across this. I asked whether they minded that I had taken their photo and they seemed happy enough – but it might have been the bubbly talking!

  10. Stories galore and quite obviously a generous amount of bubbly. As if the foreground weren’t enough fun, the gentlemen who have “lost” their heads and the baby buggy keep me smiling.
