Everyone loves a confetti shot! Here’s how to make your confetti photographs a little different to the norm…

What’s not to love about a confetti photographs – a dreamy romantic moment where friends and family shower a newly married couple with thousands of tiny little petals. But, if you want to capture something a little different on your big day, natural petal confetti growers Shropshire Petals share five of its fun shots to break from the traditional.

  1. Bang goes the confetti

There are more ways have a confetti shower than just throwing it into the air! Confetti Cannons are fun and exciting to use – set up a group shot with the bridal party and twist a few Confetti Cannons for a huge blast of beautiful natural petal confetti.  The larger cannons can fire up to 10 metres and as natural petal confetti is small and light, it will flutter down gently for longer, giving your photographer plenty of time to capture some fantastic photographs. After the initial blast, have fun and be silly in the falling petals for a spectacular confetti moment.

  1. Props and people

The confetti moment doesn’t have to be just for the newly married couple.  Add some of your own personality and style by including props and photo frames for some unique confetti shots. You can order enough confetti to have several group shots to include different members of the bridal party and your guests. Why not supply confetti alongside a photo booth and see how creative your guests can be!
