FATHER OF THE BRIDE by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN LISBON

The bride enters the Church with her grandfather and father in the aisle that leads to the altar, by the wedding photographer in Mafra.

The wedding day has several key moments and one of them is the entry of the bride and groom with the parents into the ceremony space. For the wedding photographer, it is very funny to see how the companion does the way from the door to the altar or ceremonial table. The mothers of the groom will be subject to another post. But with the fathers of the brides, we could do a thesis about how the intensity of the affection can be shown in several meters as if they come from the light itself in the door until the penumbra near the solemn altar stone.

I never found a father that did not show himself, in that range, love for her daughter. We may, but I never did. However, the way they behave in the delivery task can be very variable. The institutional father is very focused on the function, very serious, straight and just looking to the front. The melted one does not care about anybody and his eyes only glow to the daughter as if she was the only thing that mattered in the world. The occasional, usual stuff, no need to worry with a hand in the pocket and the other in the daughter’s hand. The funny guy, looking at everybody with nervous jokes and, once arrived, threaten the groom that if you do not take good care of her you do not want to know what would happen to him.

It is one of the photos this wedding photographer assumes great responsibility for. And, at the same time, I do it with great pleasure observing how love and affection can manifest even in the symbolic acts of outgoing. Yes, it is good to be a wedding photographer.
