To the Videographers and Photographers
To be given to Videographers and Photographers
Due to the problems being incurred by the Videographers and the Photographers at Sacraments performed at the Churches generally, and because I would like to be just with all people involved, i.e. every wedding and every baptism to be on time, I kindly ask you to be at the Church at least 10 minutes prior to the time booked.
At all times, I would like you to keep in mind that the church is not by any means a social place or studio; please stay in one place, limit your movements within the Church. If at any stage you need to go to the other side, please do not cross between the couple and the priest, but behind the couple.
Do not in any circumstances ask the groom and the bride to be disrespectful in the Church. Do not at any time (during the service) talk to the parties or ask them to pose for you! Please remember, the Church is a sacred place, a place of worship.
Do not line the members of the family at the conclusion of the sacrament within the church to pose for you. One family photo can be taken out of the church, as preparing to leave the ground of the church. Please, be aware that the wedding service assigned for the couple is no more than 1 hour in total. Once the parties walk out from the Church, please do not take your time; the other people for the next wedding are waiting – PLEASE BE COURTEOUS!
Please respect the rites and regulation of the St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, so no one will get upset, especially the people who would like to remember their wedding day with good memories.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
