Jewish wedding photographer in Hampshire
I’m pleased to share this elegant Jewish wedding with you now. Meet Rebecca and Jack at their late summer wedding I shot this August. Oh what a huge event this was, put together by Atom Events – roughly 450 guests attended – a great day to be a wedding photographer. Atom Events is a high profile event planning agency based in London and Dublin.
Being a wedding photographer has taken me to many Jewish weddings lately. Shot one in Israel, France and now this one in UK. They’ve all been good fun – Jewish people definitely know how to party.
Jewish wedding traditions
If you want to become a Jewish wedding photographer firstly you should do a bit of research before. Their rich culture and traditions are a bit different from those we are used to. Firstly they are Reform or strictly Orthodox. But the common things you should know are following:
- What should you wear to a Jewish wedding? For the ceremony women should wear clothes that covers shoulders, but men should wear Kippahs or Yarmulkas on their heads.
- How long is a Jewish wedding ceremony? The ceremony usually lasts about 25-45 minutes.
- Do Men and women sit and dance separately? Yes, if it is an ultra- Orthodox wedding, but if it is a regular Orthodox than only during ceremony.

Enjoy the gallery below and see what I’m talking about. It was one of the greatest weddings of the year, be sure not to miss it. Thank you Rebecca and Jack for being great on the day, thank you Atom Events for putting this wedding together, it was perfect.
These two cuties where invited to the wedding and decorated accordingly. sorry I don’t remember their names.
This was taken during Ketubahs signing before the ceremony. That contract outlines groom’s responsibilities to his bride.
Sheva B’rachot or Seven Blessings
Breaking of the Glass. This tradition has various meanings, but mainly it symbolises the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem.
Ha, ha, ha…this fella didn’t want to move off the carpet of the ceremony isle carpet. Maybe it is his everyday spot for many years.
