Come on everyone, let’s be honest, we all love a good wedding. From watching the awkward uncle throw down some shocking dance moves while the fat cousin chows down on the fondue, which always looks suspiciously like someone has liberated their stomach lining into it.
At the majority of weddings there’s some bloke who’s been paid an absolute fortune to drag along his Canon 550d to take the best posed shots you’ve ever seen. He’s also got to take some photos that aren’t meant to look posed but they are posed, but not meant to look posed, without seeming like they’re not posing by posing in a way you aren’t posing. Yeh…
So anyway. I spotted the Impossible Project (who I’ve written about before) tweet this absolute delight out. It’s from a couple’s wedding and they took a lot of shots on polaroids and, well, it just makes it look ten times better. I’ll let you decide but I think it looks f*cking awesome.
Anyone who knows me knows that I have a bit of a crush on Polaroids. They’re the best type of photographs out there because every single shot tells a story no matter how dull or exciting. When Polaroid announced they were stopping production on their film it was a pretty sad day for everyone that has ever taken a photo but luckily there’s people out there that don’t believe the legacy should be forgotten so easily.
Take a look at The Impossible Project. They’re making film for your Polaroid camera and having exhibitions all over the world as well.

I’ve added the first selection of my photos that are just a random collection of shots. There’s no meaning behind them, they’re just photos that I like really so enjoy a little tour through France, New York, Egypt and London through an SLR and Polaroid!
