It’s your wedding day and you’re singing it from the rooftops! Everything is that much brighter and you’re ready to have the most amazing time ever! Once you’ve tied the knot, what does every party need? Fantastic photos! With the popularity of photo booths, couples and guests are seriously upping their game in the photography stakes! Why not play around with your selfies and group shots? We’ve put together our guide to the top 8 fun photo opportunities you won’t want to miss when its time to get snap happy!
1) The Boys: Bromance
Feel like dragging your man away from the lads can be a bit like a tug-of-war? Battle it out with the guys in a fun snap like this one and remember that there’s more than enough love to go around! Of course the boys are more than happy that their bro has found his one true love and will honour this by keeping him in check on any future guys nights out! (whilst poking fun at him at the same time for ‘settling down’!)
2) When We Were Young
Take a trip down memory lane with this especially sweet photo opportunity, with some adorable nostalgia that’ll have you guests going “awwwww”! Fish out your favourite candid shots from when you were kids (we LOVE the polaroid style) and hold it in front of your faces for the perfect time capsule, with the past meeting the present! In the future, you’ll look back on the two of you all grown up on your wedding day – when, at heart, you’re still the goofy looking kids in the family album!
3) A Wild Time
Take a walk on the wild side with this one – gather everyone together for a quirky shot with a bit of a difference! Channel the mystery of a masquerade and the fun of the circus by handing out animal masks to your guests! Which animal will suit them the best? Perhaps the bride’ll be a rabbit and the groom’ll be a bear! You’ll create a striking photo opportunity that’s just bursting with fun when you have a group shot taken in character! Transform your guests into an entire zoo and get ready to party, animal style!
4) Under The heel
Show the boys who’s boss with this play on perspective, or perhaps you’d like to have the bride or groom in the palm of your hand! Turn your bridesmaids and groomsmen into the lilliputians of Gulliver’s Travels with this hilarious photo opportunity where everyone gets shrunk down to size. It all comes down to the angle of the camera and clever placement – throw in the perfect timing and you’ve got an amazing (and hilarious!) photograph to add to the family album!
5) Heroes For The Day
Is your to-be superman in disguise? Go all Clark Kent and assemble a team of heroes for this brilliantly geeky photo opportunity! Line up your avengers, wearing t-shirts beneath their suits (for another meaning to being ‘suited up’!) with super hero slogans, then, when the time is right, have them pull back their shirts to reveal their secret, hidden identities! You can really let your personality shine through with this one – proving that the guys can have more than a little fun on their big day when it comes to giving it their own unique stamp!
6) Sneaking A Peak
These bridesmaids have caught the groom giving his bride a sneaky kiss around the corner! Play I-Spy with this cheeky photograph opportunity that’s perfect for any bridesmaids who are looking out for their main girl! Who doesn’t want to share into the romance?
7) We’ll Be At The Bar
At the end of a long, busy day – what can be better than heading to the bar? Line up your bridesmaids at the bar then join them for a funny snap of you all downing a well-earned pint! Ideal for the bride who’s a fan of a good night out! Substitute the pints for shots and its a party! We love this tongue-in-cheek shot.
8). I’ll Be There For You!
This one is iconic and the perfect throwback to f.r.i.e.n.d.s – our fave show from the 90s! All you’ll need for this fun photo opportunity? Umbrellas up! Recreate that moment from the intro in an instant.
