The pastoral staff at St. Basil’s wishes to work in collaboration with photographers and videographers in helping couples realize their wedding liturgy. To achieve this common goal, we have outlined some guidelines:
At the start of the celebration the Presider will instruct the guests that they are to abstain from taking photographs. This directive will allow you to work, without any hindrances from guests.
To avoid distractions to the bride and the groom, the presider and guests, we ask that no additional lighting or flash photography be used in the church. St. Basil’s architecture and lightening will allow for beautiful photographs without the addition.
Generally, you are welcomed to move freely throughout the church, keeping the following in mind:
Lastly, we ask that no pictures be taken of the bride and groom or guests during Communion.
In the case that it may be helpful to you, you are welcomed to plug in any microphones and/or sound recording devices into our audio system.
