Be sure to ask your photographer to capture the morning of the wedding day when you’re getting ready with your bridesmaids. You could gift your best girls with personalised bridesmaid robes – they look fabulous in photographs and it’s a snapshot you’ll treasure long after your wedding day. Similarly, make sure the groom gets some fab shots of his ushers in action! They could swing their jackets over their shoulders, reveal some comedy socks or they could throw the funniest poses they know. Again, you’ll look back and smile at these fabulous photos with your friends and family.
Props are a must-have when it comes to bridal party photographs and they are guaranteed to make the group laugh! I particularly love the idea of asking your bridesmaids and groomsmen to hold small chalkboard signs explaining who they are. Whether they’re the best friend or sister, it adds a lovely personal touch to your wedding photographs. Alternatively, you could ask your bridal party to wave mini flags, balloons or confetti at you and your new hubby-to-be! DIY photo-frames are used regularly in wedding photo-booths, but you could also ask your bridal party to hold a frame in front of you both with lots of cheesy smiles!

Sparklers at weddings are becoming increasingly popular, and is it any wonder? They look absolutely amazing in wedding photographs. When the night draws in, ask your bridal party to spell out LOVE or your initials while you’re having your photographs taken. It’ll look utterly magical against the backdrop of the night sky, and it will be lovely knowing your wedding team are involved.
If it’s raining on your wedding day, be sure to source some fun umbrellas for your wedding photographs! You’ll be surprised at how effective it looks when everything is holding white or colourful umbrellas – you could even provide your bridal party with matching wellington boots! Make the most of your bouquets by throwing your bouquets in the air or by holding them in front of your faces. You can also ask your bridesmaids and groomsmen to link arms and walk along, or get everyone to wave their hands in the air and cheer as you have a smooch as husband and wife.
By preparing photography ideas for your bridal party, it’ll look natural, fun and full of happiness. You’ll capture memories and moments that you can look back on long after your big day…
