How To Plan a Photogenic Wedding
Everyone wants their special day to be picture perfect. Elegant backdrops and stunning interiors mixed with smiles and close family and friends celebrating your big day – everything has to be perfect. But how do you ensure your wedding day is picture perfect? Here are our top tips to create a photogenic wedding to remember.
Set the scene
To get the perfect snaps of your wedding day, you need to pick the perfect venue, with stunning interiors and jaw-dropping backdrops. Picking the perfect venue with photos in mind can be tricky because of your location, budget and guest restrictions so you need to start looking way before your big day.
To help you decide on your venue, pick the theme of your wedding. Do you want a rustic traditional feel or an elegant beach wedding with a twist? Decide on your wedding theme and find a venue that works best. If you are looking for a rustic, country wedding then you can find lots of venues, like a large open plan barn out in the countryside. If you are planning the perfect beach wedding then your photos will be open with lots of light exposure.
Hire the right photographer
You can’t possibly hope to get picture perfect wedding photos if you go for an inexperienced or unprofessional photographer. Do your research to find an exceptional wedding photographer that’s fit for the job.
Look for someone with a sterling reputation, either from friends and family or from reviews online. Ask to see a portfolio before you commit to your photographer so you can double check their style before the big day. Always meet with your photographer to discuss the look you are going for. At this stage, you should find examples of what style you want to go for, even if these photos aren’t necessarily of a wedding.
Ask a friend that is a budding photographer to grab a few snaps alongside your planned photographer. This way you will have a variety of different types of shots to choose from.
Make a statement
All eyes are on you, of course, so you need to make a statement. An easy way to do this is to wear statement jewelry to finish off your look. Antique jewelry is unique and is a sure-fire way to brighten your look – especially in photos. Glimmering and elegant pieces will add class and sophistication to your outfit and will be perfect for capturing the perfect wedding shot.
Find something that compliments your dress and isn’t too garish, like these stunning antique pieces from Berganza. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings will help to create a photogenic wedding day you will never forget.
Everyone wants their wedding to be photogenic, and let’s be honest, it’s probably the most you’re ever going to be photographed in one day – so you want everything to be perfect. Make sure your wedding has a stunning backdrop and that you hire the right photographer to capture your magical day. Jewelry will bring your outfit to life and provide for a more photogenic wedding day. Which tips will you try for your wedding day?
