Today I welcome Digitalab to the Blog to share some advice on those Must have Wedding Photographs.
If you’re a bride-to-be busy planning your perfect wedding, you’re probably nervously crossing the days off the calendar and wondering how you’ll get everything done before your big day.
After months of tireless planning and preparation, your wedding day will be over in a flash – so you might want to start thinking about how you can keep those precious memories fresh in your mind long after you’ve said ‘I do’.
When the honeymoon’s over and your dress is packed away, photographs of your wedding day will remind you of the finer details – and give you the chance to enjoy any moments you might have missed.
Thanks to bespoke wedding photo albums, brides can transform their photographs into beautiful keepsakes to make sure their memories are as unique as their wedding.
The nervous groom
Once you arrive at your wedding, all eyes will be on you – but the moments before you arrive at the church or registry office offer the perfect opportunity for your photographer to capture some pictures of the groom.
As he anxiously awaits his bride, your future husband will be a mixture of nerves and excitement with his best man by his side.
From a look of apprehension to the moment he sees you in your gown, you’ll treasure those pictures of your groom forever.
If you’re a daddy’s girl, you’ll have been looking forward to walking down the aisle with your father since you were a little girl.
It’s a once in a life-time moment for every daughter, charged with love and emotion – and what better way to remember your perfect day than by capturing an image of you two sharing that special moment?
Whether it’s for Christmas, Father’s Day or just to show him you love him, a photograph of you and your father sharing that tender moment is guaranteed to make a heart-warming and unique gift.
For some this just isn’t possible as either their Father has passed or is not present in their life but capturing the moment with a special person who supports you on this day will have a lot of meaning too.
Cutting the cake
Whether you’re both flashing your pearly whites or striking a pose, the cutting of the cake is a classic moment at any wedding.
While your guests will happily gather around to watch the magic happen, you’ll be glad of a few photographs of your own once the big day is behind you.
From a three-tiered masterpiece to an elegant design, cutting the cake is a time-honoured tradition so make sure you get a few shots of this iconic moment.
Through the generations
When it comes to weddings, emotions run high as family members gather together and share their memories of you and your groom.
These are rare occasions that see the entire family coming together – and a picture of you or your partner with the different generations of your family will make for a wonderful keepsake long after the confetti has blown away.
The first dance
After the ‘big reveal’ of the bride’s dress, this is the moment your guests are waiting for.
Your friends and family will be keen to find out which song you and your newlywed have chosen – and after a few glasses of champagne, they’ll be eager to join you on the dancefloor.
This is the perfect opportunity to get some snaps of your guests letting their hair down and enjoying the party – and you won’t want to miss a thing.
It’s true what they say: when your wedding day finally arrives, blink and you’ll miss it – so make sure your photographer is on-hand to capture every precious moment.
Once the big day is over, you can beat the post-wedding blues by having your photographs transformed into a timeless wedding album that you’ll cherish forever.
