Top Five Fun Wedding Photographs Every Wants
In the Instagram-obsessed generation of weddings, photographs have taken on a whole new meaning. Gone are the traditional poses, while quirky snaps and the chance to be unique dominate most wedding shoots.
With this in mind, here are the top five photograph trends that every bride wants on her wedding day.
1) The Makeover
Photos of the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready are an essential part of the day, but it doesn’t just have to be a few snaps of you dressed and ready to go. Photos are your chance to be creative, so capture everything from your make-up application to the dress hanging on your wardrobe. Buy matching dressing gowns and get a shot of you and your bridal party before you have your glad rags on, champagne in hand.
2) The Chalkboards
These can be a really cute addition to both the bridesmaid photos and the groomsman photos. Get each of them to hold up a chalkboard in their picture with you, with either a funny moment from your history together written on them, or their relation to you. It tells people who they are, but will be a talking point for years to come when you have to explain the various incidents they’ve written down to embarrass you.
3) The Photo Frame
This is the perfect addition to any vintage wedding setting, or garden party theme. If you’re having any part of your reception outside, hang an old golden frame from a tree and get people to have their picture taken in it. You can even tie it in with your theme by adding silly props and wigs for your guests to dress up in. If you’ve decided on a seaside or carnival theme, you can swap it for a funny head-in-the-hole board instead.
4) The Photo Booth
This is a great idea for your evening reception, when people get a little more tipsy and you still want to capture those drunken moments. A lot of photographer services now can include a photo booth as part of their packages, such as this . Again, you can add props and wigs to make it more interesting; how about adding some disney princess accessories for the girls and superhero masks for the guys?
5) The Sparkler
This can be a truly stunning photo and is a huge trend at the moment. It’s particularly effective if you are having an evening reception outside, as you can get more people involved, but it can equally beautifully as an intimate moment with you and your groom. When taking your outside shots, wait until it’s dark and get the sparklers out! You can ask the photographer to do a long-exposure shot, and either spell your names with sparklers, or do a ring of fire around yourselves.
