I am hoping to get to shoot a few more weddings and must admit I like this approach by the vicar. More than likely he was asked to say this by the couple, perhaps at the request of the photographer but it may also have been to do with him wanting to stop flashes going off all over the place and ruining the occasion. A pro will often be asked not to use flash in a church and yet every guest in the place it seems at times feels they have the right to flash away. Whenever I`ve been a guest I have accepted that within the church is not the place to get shots and satisfied myself with getting them outside or at the reception whilst always aiming to stay out of the way and not steall the set ups of the pro who might have been paid a lot of money by the couple to get best possible shots of the day and has had to battle against people getting in the way with phones, cameras and the rest. Well done vicar I say.
Some photographers have it as a clause in their contract that other cameras / photography is not allowed so when you`re able to take shots think yourself lucky. If the B&G are getting a deal for a CD of shots as I supply within my packages it means shots are readily accessible anyway.
