What Is An Unplugged Wedding?
Updated: Mar 19, 2021
An unplugged wedding is where you and your guests unplug from the world, be it your mobile phone, iPad, camera, or any other technology that you use to connect with the world! An unplugged wedding is about enjoying the moment through your own eyes, not on the screen of your mobile phone, iPad or camera screen. Sharing with everyone the opportunity to look down the aisle and see your friends and family looking back, seeing their emotion, seeing them smile, feeling their love. Or you can look down the aisle and see people checking their phones, taking photos and uploading to Facebook or Instagram, your friends and family hiding behind a camera or their phone as they take their wedding photograph and upload it for the world to see before you have even said ‘I Do’?
WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE AN UNPLUGGED WEDDING?
Take a moment to think about your guests and family and why you want them to be there. You want them there so they can enjoy the moment, enjoy the emotion and excitement of you getting married, and for just one day to forget about everything and just be in the moment. Sometime guests will need to check their phones in cases of dependents and carers etc., ask them to be considerate about when they do this. However, there is no need for guests to take photos, you have hired a professional wedding photographer that is their job and they will do it far easier and capture better photographs without having to work around an aisle full of guests blocking your entrance/exit while holding out their camera phones.
