While organising your wedding, you need to decide whether to ban the use of smart phones, cameras and social media, particularly during the ceremony.

In many ways, social media is great. You get to see lots of images that you may not have seen otherwise, but on the minus side, ‘family photographers’ can get in the way of the actual professional photographer who is trying to do a good job for you. Also, you have no control of what photos go up on Social Media or how soon they are there.

If you want your guests to be sharing the moment with you, rather than viewing it through a camera or phone lens, then do give it some thought. There is no right or wrong, but ‘unplugging’ weddings is gaining a lot of popularity. Ultimately though it is completely up to you.
