One of our assistant pastors, a former photographer, took me aside once and told told me that if there was anything worse than photographing a wedding, it was performing one.   At my very worst wedding, the photographer planted himself directly in front of the altar as if he were the priest and took a picture of every single couple as they walked down the aisle. (There were almost 40 people in the wedding party.) It took FOREVER. Worse yet there were kids running around in the back of the church directly under the balcony so I couldn't hear myself think. As if these weren't enough, the groom's cell phone rang AND HE ANSWERED IT while he was taking his wedding vows.   Alicia Zeilenga       -----Original Message----- From: Charles Peery <cepeery@earthlink.net> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Tue, 12 Oct 2004 13:28:40 -0500 (GMT-05:00) Subject: Photographers!   > I was laughing at Harry's rant about photographers.

My wife (an Episcopal priest) = always starts weddings by asking that there should not be any photography during the service, not only because it detracts from the solemn occasion, but because it is very offputting to the bride and groom (who are probably nervous enough in any case.) She adds that she will be happy to help "stage" as many pictures as anyone likes after the ceremony. On a number = of occasions the bride and groom have thanked her after the service for doing this.   John Speller, St. Mark's, St. Louis.

I cajoled the folk = into letting me see it, but the person who seems to be "curator/organist" in = some fashion had given strict orders NO ONE was to be allowed to play it except him (or at least except when in his august presence). I agree that I wouldn't let any idiot tourist in town beat on it, but goodness the people knew I was respectful and had some knowledge of organs.   Dennis Steckley Lover of Cats, Pipe Organs & 1940-65 Sewing Machines

Many churches have been forced to carpet their floors to dampen the clatter of myriad little pipes rolling all over the place and some have even been forced to the extreme of doing away with the pipe organ altogether and buying an electronic substitute, in which the problem obviously does not occur.   Peter.
