Weddings are a lot more than just promises, love and the merging of the bride and groom families. It is also all about showing the rest of your friends, family and followers on social media how beautiful the whole ceremony was. But, how do you make these wedding photos magnetic to the doomscrolling thumb? Fret no further cause we have listed these few must-photographed moments that will make your wedding the talk of Instagram.
- Wedding Dress
– and shoes, deserve their very own solo picture after all the hours you have spent in picking the bridal gown and pumps that compliment it.
2. Bride Solos
Now that the solo pictures of the dress are done, it is time to jump in the dress and get a solo.
3. Bridesmaid / Groomsmen Clan
Nothing cheers up the wedding mood more than a fun-filled bridesmaid and groomsmen photoshoot that puts the bride and groom in the spotlight among their friends and siblings (with a subtle war of who has a better clan).
This is the first impression of the venue but is also used as a posing spot by the guests if chosen correctly. A standing wall garden (sometimes with neon or mirrored initials of the bride and groom) or flower arches serve as a perfect backdrop for the guests to click a quick snap of themselves before they enter the venue. These are sometimes accompanied by enlarged photos of the to-be-weds.
5. Themed Venue
Before the chaos of the wedding starts, the venue photograph is an absolute must to capture the essence of the place where the knots are tied and vows are exchanged. After all, all those months of choosing the right flowers with the right table napkin and the right chandelier mustn’t go waste. This is also to look back and tell yourself that ‘this is what dreams are made of.’
6. Ceremony Spot
– all the way from the decorated aisle till stage where the ‘I dos’ take place, specially if it is overlooking the sea, the beach or even a range of mountains.
7. The Cake
Snap the layers of white chocolate, sugar pearls and marzipan before it is entirely devoured. We needn’t say more.
8. Food wall
Wall of donuts, wall of cupcakes, wall of salad cups, finger food wall – The most trending posts on Instagram are the food walls at the weddings but even if you don’t have one be sure to photograph it at your wedding.
9. The Happy Couple
And finally, wedding pictures are incomplete without a romantic picture of the newlywed couple because that’s why you had the wedding in the first place.
