Jump for joy
Your guys and girls should be so happy that they’re part of your big day they should be jumping for joy – literally! This fabulously fun image is made all the more fun by the neon glasses – love it!
King for a day
Let your man become king of the castle for the day with a shot like this! Just make sure the stronger ushers are at the bottom of the pyramid… Just look at the strain on those faces!
We’re loving wedding signs right now – a hot wedding trend for 2014 – but they’re not all about pointing the way. Get creative, and romantic, with a fun saying like ‘Just wait till you see her!’
Back for good
Don’t forget to get a shot of the back of your dress or your bridesmaids’ dresses for that matter. Your guests will be focused on the back of your gown throughout the ceremony, so make sure you get a shot of what they’ll be seeing.
Down on the farm
Think about incorporating your surroundings in a fun way. Getting wed on a farm? Try this fun idea using hay bales. We’re loving the flat caps too, boys!
Wedding photo booths have become essential wedding entertainment over the last few years, and many include quirky props like this. Include them in your day, even if you’re not having a dedicated photo booth as you can still get some alternative shots.
When the formalities of the ceremony are over, you’ll want to let your hair down! Grab your girls for a ‘Let’s Rock’ picture like this, and get the party started.
Hand in hand
We love this picture of the bridal party hand in hand. Shot outside to complement this rustic wedding theme, it’s fun, quirky and a must-have for your album. Makes a great picture for your newlywed home and shows the support and love of your friends on the big day.
Ah, the classic hat toss! Works especially well at military weddings like this, but also try to include this shot if your guys are wearing top hats on the day.
Raise her up!
Gather up the guys and let them hoist you into the air like you’re queen for the day! A relaxed photo that’s full of fun – just make sure they don’t drop you or you could be on the next You’ve Been Framed!
If you’re having an elegant country wedding, let your bridal party pictures reflect that theme. This shot might be staged but it’s not stuffy – the classic group shot, with a twist.
Switch it up
Top hats and canes have been switched for bridesmaids’ bouquets in this quirky shot. The same idea would work well with children – imagine a little flowergirl peeking out from under the usher’s hat?!
Raise him up!
Reminiscent of the stag night perhaps? We love the resigned look on this groom’s face and the laughter of his friends – yes, this is really happening, just go with it!
Don’t forget to get a shot of you with your smallest flowergirls. This will not only look beautiful in your wedding album, it will also ive them something special to look back on in the years to come. Super sweet!
Sometimes the most urban and normal of landscapes can make the most quirky, beautiful backdrops. Top marks to Miki Photography for giving this shot a go – old garage doors isn’t the most traditional backdrop but it really works.
Time for tea
Afternoon tea theme? We love this shot, complete with vintage crockery – and it also gives you the chance to get the mums and your granny involved in the fun.
This shot really captures the support and love between the bridal party. Linking arms and walking towards the camera, this shot has movement, fun and laughter. The perfect group shot, made even better by the beautiful lighting.
Whatever the weather
Even if it rains on your parade, grab the umbrellas and get a brilliant shot like this! Umbrellas should definitely be on your must-buy list – even if you’re planning a wedding in the summer.
This fun shot works with both the mother of the bride and the groom’s mum. If your man is a bit of a mummy’s boy, she’ll treasure this picture forever. You can just imagine it on her mantlepiece now!
Don’t waste the gorgeous light at the end of a summer’s day, grab your girls and get out into the grounds of your venue and get a celebratory shot like this. And then get back to the party…
