Making Memories at Your Wedding



A wedding might be a year in the making, but passes in the blink of an eye. Ask any bride and groom after the event, and they'll agree that your big day disappears in a flurry of hugs, champagne bubbles and confetti, plus a few happy tears. That's why it's so important to book a brilliant wedding photographer to record all those hilarious moments you miss, because you're catching up with Aunty Mildred. 

Good photographers often get booked up a year in advance, particularly over popular weekend dates like Bank Holidays, so as soon as you start your planning, you need to start thinking about what style of wedding pictures you want. We actually chose our wedding photographer before we'd even decided on our venue, although we knew we wanted to get married in the South of France, so we found someone who was happy to travel.

Traditionally your wedding photographer would just take lots of formal shots of family and friends, like those they release after a Royal Wedding. There's even a list somewhere on the internet which you can tick off, so you don't miss anyone out. Nowadays most couples prefer reportage style, where your photographer drifts quietly around your wedding, taking un-posed pictures of your guests. These are often much more natural, and your finished wedding album is more likely to reflect the tone and atmosphere of your big day. I'd recommend choosing a photographer who can do a bit of both, because you definitely want to make sure you have a few group shots of your family aka 'the framers'.


But how can you maximise on collecting as many memories as possible from your wedding day? One way to encourage your friends to take lots of relaxed group shots is to hire a photo booth, like the one in the picture above. These come in all shapes of sizes, and most provide paper and digital copies of the photographs. Add in a box of silly accessories and signs, and you'll end up with a brilliant collection of your friends having the time of their lives. Just make sure you check the quality of the booth, as the right lighting and camera setting can make all the difference.
