It really irritates the hell out of me when people pull out their cellphones/cameras at wedding ceremonies and start snapping pictures. I feel like it disrupts the ceremony and disturbs the moment the couple is sharing with you and the other guests. Also, they hire a photographer for a reason. Snap as many photos as you want during the reception, but I feel like the ceremony is so much more intimate. Is there a way to ask your guests not to ask your guests not to take pictures during the ceremony without seeming rude?

yeah theres a trend going around called “tech free ceramonies” or something like that. basically its a notification (dont know if its sent with the invite or before the ceramony) that states that you have hired a profesional photographer and would like that all phones and devices be turned off completly to honor your marriage and the ceramony. if you search pinterest it does come up often with a few examples of what you can write for the notice.

1. Where we are getting married, they will put a sign up in lobby reqesting everyone to put away and turn off all electronic devices.
2. We are paying our photographer a little extra ($20), and he will allow us to put 3 of HIS professionnally taken pictures (everyone at alter as I walk up, me walking up, ceremony) on our website after wedding, and we are noting this NOW on the website. So now need for anyone to take pictures at ceremony.

Have the officiant make a request, and put a note in your programs if you’re having them. Guests should comply – I think the request is more common these days as everyone has phone cameras and can just whip them out.
