Your wedding photographer will come with a range of wedding photo idea’s understanding what they mean and adding a few of your own can make your wedding day extra special.
These are a few of my favourite moments to capture for my wedding couples.
Admire your wedding dress
Brides may spend months or even years waiting to wear their perfect wedding dress. You may have been on a journey choosing your dream wedding dress and the morning preparation is in anticipation of putting your wedding dress on. Taking a few moments admiring your wedding dress and the journey you are about to go on. Putting your wedding dress on is the icing on the cake and the completion of the wedding morning prep.
Its the little details that complete your wedding look, from earrings to necklaces and the wedding shoes. The time it has taken to make these small decisions are just as important as the big ones .. they also help tell the story of your morning preparations.
Groom prep may not take as long but there can be some magical moments between Fathers | Father in laws and grooms.
Cufflink Love. These details can take just as long to select they show your personality and individuality. They also make great wedding gifts.
The First Look
First looks are not a usual UK wedding tradition. That being said they are perfect for couples looking for a few moments together ahead of the ceremony.
The stroll can be used through out the wedding day. Heading from one location to another is perfect for a walk. I love these transitional photos they can capture fundamentals in your wedding day story without taking time out of the day.
The Dramatic Dip Kiss
Trusting the arms of your husband as he dips you for the most romantic dip kiss, made even more perfect at Sun set.
If you are not so keen on actual kisses the eskimo kiss is for you .. gently touch noses and rub them side to side .. I dare you not to smile or even fall about giggling.
Wrapped in your partners arms
The gentle embrace from the one you love this beautiful relaxed pose needs little guidance.
A tender touch
Is there anything more romantic than a kiss on the hand of the one you love. A harp back to romantic b&w movies a spontaneous moment that shows all the love in the world.
Dance like no ones watching
When the sun sets and all thats left to do is the 1st Dance get a little practice in … it makes for the most beautiful photograph.
Dramatic Veil photograph
Sweeping a long veil in front of the camera and if the wind is onside it blows gracefully in the wind .. add a little kiss for a truly “gone with the wind effect”.
The Subtle Glance back
Walk away from your photographer hand in hand .. bride looks back over her shoulder while her groom looks loving at her .. magic.
Add in any props or wedding decorations you have make for very personal wedding photos.
End your night with sparklers
Sparklers make a magical wedding exit .. gather all your friends and family around, get extra long sparklers and lots of lighters and have some fun.
