Social Media + Self-Absorption = Online Reputation Implosion

online reputationIt’s common for people to make fun of self-absorbed brides who become ‘bridezillas’. The wedding industry bears some responsibility with headlines, such as “It’s all about you.”

Wedding professionals can sometimes cross-the-line in their own level of self-importance, forgetting they are part of team, serving the bride and groom. And then there is award-winning foolishness, as demonstrated by this short video clip, we witness an online reputation implosion.

Whether we realize it or not, our businesses, and our behavior are on display, constantly. Be it recording, photograph, or videography… there is documentation everywhere.

The wedding officiant in this clip prefers no photography or videography during the ceremony. A point he seems to have failed to discuss with the bride or groom, as well as the photographer or videographer. He creates to the consummate awkward moment.

Your thoughts and comments are welcome.

  1. Wow! I agree as wedding professionals we are ALWAYS being photographed and video taped but this guy took it to the EXTREME. Talk about not seeing the big picture.

    If the minister felt that way about photography & videography MAYBE he could have said something to this clients about it BEFORE hand. Not ruin the ceremony and come of looking look a JERK in front of EVERYONE.

    COMMUNICATION is the key to being on a winning team without it you will never be a winner.
