Hello there! Today’s wedding blog starts with a warning: you might just find a little tear in your eye as we focus on some of the best moments from weddings around the UK. We’re talking emotional grooms – happy tears and celebratory whoops – all caught on camera.
I was reading You & Your Wedding magazine yesterday, and looking at the real weddings in there. The printed magazines allocate less space to their real couples’ features than most of the top blogs do – it’s all part of the business model (read more of my thoughts on wedding magazines). It means they show lots of images of ‘things’ and details in their real wedding features, and very few photos of the bride and groom, or of the key moments in a wedding day.
I think this is a shame. Planning your ceremony and reception down to the finest detail is loads of fun – choosing table decorations and quirky signs, buying jars of sweets and planning flowers is all great. But when you look back on your wedding day in years to come, it’s the magical moments you’ll remember: the walk down the aisle, the moment your eyes meet… and the look on his face, whether it’s a crazy grin or holding back tears.
Can you imagine how the moment will play out on your big day? Here are some of the most beautiful images of emotional grooms to make you smile, cry and look forward to your wedding day. Enjoy…

All of these images have been sent to me by photographers in the UK. I received dozens of submissions for this feature (and for the Focus On… series of blog posts in general) and I’d like to thank all of the photographers who shared their images for us to enjoy.
