Wedding Photo Ideas
Everyone wants treasured photos from their wedding day to look back on for years to come. As well as those loving looks being captured between husband and wife, there is time for a whole lot of fun with your BRIDAL PARTY! These peeps are your team! Many times they have known you for years, your whole life if you choose your siblings and the wedding photos are a perfect time to grab some insanely fun snaps of you altogether.
It is a good idea to plan some of your wedding photos but sometimes those unplanned, spontaneous moments are the most special! Here are some of our all time fave wedding photo ideas for your bridal party…..
First Up – The Bridal Party Leap
Your wedding is one big party with your nearest and dearest so who doesn’t feel like a leap to celebrate. You will be jumping for joy all night!
Next Up – the Bouquet high five
The bride and her maids are looking simply stunning in their gowns, with hair and make-up done. This could possibly be the most glamorous you will ever look. It’s cause for a high five moment with those stunning bridal bouquets in the air!
The Bridal Party getting ready
It takes all day to look this good! From the moment the bridesmaids and groomsmen wake up on your wedding day the fun starts. For the girls – make up artists, hairdressers and family are all gathered around to make it the most special day ever. Many crack open a bottle of bubbly early and let the games begin! Have your photographer arrive a few hours early to capture the fun.
And lets not forget the groomsmen. Whilst it doesn’t take the men quite as long to get ready, there is still plenty of photo opportunities and time to check they are looking sharp.
The big moment – putting your wedding dress on…..these gowns can be seriously complicated with zippers, corsets, buttons & loops, so luckily you have your bridesmaids to style you. Another great photo opportunity and heartfelt moment between a bride and her maids.
Next Up – The Kiss with Bridal Party in the background
Everyone seems to have one of these photos in their album and they are a lot of fun. Whilst you only have eyes for each other on your wedding day, the bridal party is there to cheer you on the whole way.
The Location Shots with Bridal Party
Once the wedding ceremony is over, everyone can relax. The best man kept the rings safe, your maid of honour fluffed your train and held your bouquet. The official jobs are almost over (apart from speeches) so enjoy these hilarious moments as the whole bridal party wanders your chosen location for photos.
One of our all time favourite bridal party photos – the groomsmen and the bride!
And the reverse – the groom with the bridesmaids!
And if you need a breather…
Beautiful memories captured on the move….
And for something more unique – how about baby bumps and a baby reveal….
Photos at the Wedding Reception
And as the evening progresses the bridal party settles into the reception, to share their favourite stories about the bride and groom and have some laughs. If your photographer can hang around for these special moments – you will cherish the photos.
