Macro Lenses 

A large part of the big day can be the small things - little touches like the flowers, decorations and even the rings to help the couple remember the intricate details of the day when they have time to look back on it. A wedding can be very full-on, especially for the couple and it's nice to have these things captured to help them remember their big day. 

These lenses will be ideal for those finer details - they are good at isolating the subject.
