Unplugged Wedding Ceremonies


A recent wedding trend is for couples to ask me that their ceremony be an “unplugged” one. What does unplugged mean? It means that when I first come out to start the ceremony, I not only ask that the guests make certain that their cell phones are turned off (which I always do), but I also ask that all phones, cameras, and any recording devices be turned off and put away, adding that the bride and groom have asked that only their official photographer take pictures which they will gladly share after the ceremony.

Why are couples doing this? If you could see what I often see during a ceremony, you would know why. Many guests pay far more attention to their cell phones and cameras than they do to the ceremony, being more concerned with getting a picture or recording events than they are to listening to and hearing what is being said. I see many, many people watching the ceremony through their cell phones and wonder what they are truly hearing.

Having an unplugged ceremony will help your guests to focus on your ceremony – the ceremony that you have put so much thought into and is the centerpiece of your wedding. There will be plenty of time for pictures and filming at the reception. Think about unplugging your wedding ceremony and showing your guests how important the ceremony is to you.

The issue that you raised in your blog is really very serious, and most of people lose the quality and integrity of such subjects, when they try to pen it down. But, your job is well done.Thanks for sharing it......

Unplugged ceremonies as for me- not suitable for visitors coming for the party.Prohobition of making their private photos binds and upsets human behavior. It's not a crime having some diverse photos -it's legal a right of every man.

You are right, the concept of “unplugged ceremonies” leads to the fact that all participants dive into this particular event. Like many others I enjoy replaying video from the wedding ceremony. There are special online services for transcription video including wedding and which are necessary in case of speech recognition.
