03.04.10 Our Day by Design: Recessional

When our ceremony was over and the last hymn had been sung, we turned to face all of our guests. The pianist started playing our recessional song and we begun the walk back down the aisle as Mr & Mrs!

Although we had turned to face all of our guests while we were signing the register, this was the first time I really saw anyone properly. The best man, bridesmaids and ushers followed behind us, then our parents after them, followed by the rest of the guests.

Once we got down the stairs to the main door of the church, we got some photos on the steps.

Then everyone piled out behind us to congratulate us outside...

  1. I love YOUR photographs.
    They take my breath away.

  2. I love the black and white photo of you exiting! Your train looks simply stunning.

  3. Your photos are so beautiful! You look like a princess bride!

  4. I love the photos where you guys are alone and it seems as though you don't know the photographer was there. Perfect.

  5. I love those last three, gorgeous!

  6. Those are such incredible shots. So regal and formal and just stunning. I love them. I agree that you don't really get a chance to 'see' your guests during the ceremony. that's why I blogged about how I stopped at the top of the stairs and made our officiant wait a moment so I could try to glance out at everyone :)

  7. I loved that part. The turning around and seeing all our family and friends beaming at us. Beautiful photos.

  8. I really love the 2 pics of you kissing in the doorway, (assuming they were taken at about the same time?). So nice to have two photos of the same moment side by side!
