I spotted these images here, and I love how photographer Dianne Personett has captured this couple who decided to have a ‘first look’ but without actually seeing eachother. They had just a door between them as they exchanged private love letters to each other on the morning of their wedding. I just love how you can see the emotion, the relief and the anticipation of the day ahead in their faces (well mainly the brides, the groom looks a touch confused!), and must be so sweet for them to look back on now. A very sweet romantic touch, especially for those a little nervous of walking down the aisle but those perhaps a touch too superstitious to see their bride or groom before their wedding.

Are any of you considering a ‘first look’ or almost ‘first look’ to have that special calm before the storm moment together, or would you want to wait and savour the moment walking down the aisle? All my couples who have done a first look have said that it was one of their highlights of their day and I have to say they also make sense for a busy schedule and also especially in winter when the light fades quite early on. What do you think?
