Lancashire Wedding Photographer - Nervous Brides...

January 30, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

….exist, in fact there are many of them all over the country getting married – today!


I, like many photographers have had my fair share of nervous couples (it’s not just the brides!!!).  Is it normal to be nervous on one of the biggest days of your life? – you bet!  Is it something that warrants being nervous? – possibly if you don’t like being centre of attention or speaking in public.  There are many reasons why the bride, groom or other members of your wedding party may feel nervous and each one is valid to the individual.  It is not my job to judge each person, just to document what happens during the day, whether that is happiness, tears or nerves!

A little while ago I had a very nervous bride come to me and talk to me about her wedding photography. She was so nervous about being in front of the camera that she was even questioning having a photographer at all.  Now if you follow my blog and /or my work on my site or Facebook you will realise my opinion on this matter!  The imagery that is captured on your big day is the only thing you have left once the champagne is gone and the flowers have wilted.  Believe me, your memories don’t last that long either.  So, once I heard that she was so worried and could see the……..well, physical terror across her face just talking about it, I realised there must be a way of helping her.  I’m not saying that I’m running a crusade but I would hate to think that I had a chance to give this bride the best imagery possible but didn’t put in the time to help her with her worries.  I didn’t want to think i’d handed a price list across but didn’t do anything to help with the real problems that were stopping this lovely girl from booking me.

So, with the worry that I wouldn’t be booked and that this young couple wouldn’t have any imagery from their special day I spoke to a good friend of mine, Les Pye.  Les is a Creative Hypnotherapist, which means he’s not going to make you strut around and cluck like a chicken (unless you really want to!!!) but he uses his knowledge and expertise with hypnotherapy to help people, all sorts of people, with their worries or concerns that may be affecting them or holding them back.  So we had a chat about my nervous bride and he was touched by the story that the nerves that this young girl was experiencing could limit the happiness of her big day and even her ongoing memories of the special moment that this lovely couple became husband and wife.  Les had never worked with a bride with stage freight before but believed that it was possible to help her overcome her worries of the day.

To cut a long story short – Les worked with the bride in question (as well as her father – who was very concerned about speaking to a room full of people in his speech) and all I can say is – He’s magic!!  The difference in this young girls stance and demeanour was shocking.  Going from a shy, timid bride to a confident, happy and radiant bride!

Does Hypnotherapy have a place in the wedding industry?  My answer to this is – YES!

Can you find help with your nerves on the big day? My answer – YES! Please check out and contact Les to discuss your concerns and see when he can help you!
