Brides & Grooms With Their Children – Son and Daughter Day

Son and Daughter Day

In honour of today being International Son and Daughter Day (11 August) I thought it would be nice to share with you some wedding photography of brides and grooms with their children on the wedding day.

As a documentary wedding photographer I love to photograph those special and unique bonds between people and there is none closer than the relationship between a parent and child – young or old.

Bonds, Relationships & Emotions

Of course, it being a wedding day often makes that relationship even more intense and, excuse the pun, sharply focused. Emotions often run high as parents forge a new relationship together of which their children will form a central part.

So when I document those often powerful private moments between a bride or groom with their child, I’m recording a truly moving and intimate piece of family life.  It’s all part of your wedding’s real and unique story.

Being a natural and genuine moment it’s heartfelt and raw, in a way a posed or set up wedding moment could never capture or recreate.  As a wedding photojournalist I truly value the integrity of such moments.

So What Is Son and Daughter Day?

You may be wondering what Son and Daughter day is. To quote from the Days of the Year website, it is:

…the perfect opportunity to set aside some time to reflect on the joy that children bring to your life. Whether sons and daughters are young or old, teenagers or toddlers, the bond between parent and child is like no other on earth and this annual celebration ensures the miracle of bringing new life into the world is never forgotten. Though the origins of Son and Daughter Day are unknown, it is celebrated widely across the world simply by parents spending time with their children and letting them know how special they are to them. The best gift to give on Son and Daughter Day is the gift of time. If your children are still living at home, take some time out of your schedule to truly enjoy their company. If your children have moved away, make sure they return so you can spend quality family time together.

So share with me and celebrate Son and Daughter day with this very small selection of wedding photos featuring brides and grooms with their kids on the wedding day.
