With this ring…
I love the meaning behind the ceremony of the wedding rings and what it stands for. A wedding ring is an unbroken circle of love and trust.
Did you know that in Ancient Rome, the groom would present his bride with an iron ring, which is the origin of today’s metal wedding bands.
A wedding ring is traditionally worn on the fourth finger of the left hand and this custom dates back to the Romans as well as the Greeks. They started this tradition of placing the wedding ring on the fourth finger of the left hand because they believed that the finger contained the vena amoris, otherwise known as the ‘vein of love’. It is believed that this vein leads to the heart. What a lovely sentiment.
Every wedding I photograph I take a beautiful bespoke photograph of the couple’s wedding bands. Something unique to their day.
This gorgeous image was photographed at Cripps Barn for Pam and Prem on their wedding day.
Can you guess at Cripps Barn this was taken…?! Answers on a postcard… (or perhaps in the comments below!)
