Wedding Kisses: the good and the bad

It's been a week of celebrity weddings, and I cant help but comment on the contrast in kisses.

First we had Prince Albert and his hostage bride Charlene. This whole story has had me troubled all week.
As if the stories of her trying to escape days before the wedding before being stopped by police and having her passport confiscated weren't troubling enough.
But her tears throughout the ceremony, her sad eyes and defeated looking posture only cemented the perception that something just isn't right in this relationship.
And  THEN... the kiss. Discomfort central. This is how NOT to kiss on your wedding day. They look like they cant bear each other!
The poor girl.. I'd be cringing if I had to kiss him too!

Then we had Kate Moss and Jamie Hince.
Another attractive, blonde, 30-something woman tying the knot on the same day. But the similarities stop there.
Posing happily with their (ahem) 15 bridesmaids, this couple looked the picture of love.
And they had a kiss full of love to match.
Look at the passion in this one. She's pulling him in, and he's holding her so close with that arm around her waist. I think there may even be tongue... although i feel slightly sleazy analysing this too carefully! Especially since they seem to be in a world of their own, seemingly unaware that anyone is watching!

And just to finish things off (coz really, where else will i ever display this picture?!)... here's my wedding kiss. I think it falls somewhere in between Kate Moss (raunchy) and Prince Albert (revolting):

I have to pose the question.. how much passion is too much passion in a wedding kiss? You want more than a quick peck surely.. but can there be tongue? And how long is too long? Would love to hear your thoughts!


  1. We kissed too quick!
    The photographer missed it...
    So no kiss photo for us.
    I feel sad for Charlene. It is sad if she isn't happy, but I hope things are good and work out for them.
    Kate Moss's kiss is beautiful. Full of love in my eyes.

  2. Well, so long as you and your partner enjoyed it, that's all that matters!! :-)
