"You may now kiss the bride" Why is that phrase so important and worthy to be captured on film?
I just recently read an interesting article from one of my favourite magazines Psychology Today. Jay Dixit highlighted "what kissing means for men and for women". I won't discuss the whole article with the exception of these few points listed below.
Men gage women's lips as signal for good health. They also instinctively use kissing to smooth over conflicts - with great success".
While women believe kissing promotes attachment and bonding. And use kissing to assess the health of the relationship.
Both men and women use kissing to access compatibility which explains the feeling of sparks when you kiss someone for the first time.
Makes you think. For those who are about to partake in the union of marriage just remember when you hear the words "you may now kiss the bride" show one and all the spark in your relationship. If for anything else to ensure that the moment is captured and invokes the feelings you've experienced on that special day.
The wifey and I display our "KISS" image as our flag-ship portrait in our bedroom. Can you spot it in this picture below?
Ok Ok, it's actually the moment before we kissed but it still acts as a reminder (or a gage) on the level of romance in our relationship. Thanks again to our wedding photographer Florian to encourage us to take this image.
Do you have your "KISS" image planned? If not make sure to request one for your engagement or wedding photo? If you do have a similar image, is it proudly displayed and if not then ask yourself why not??
