40 Must have photos on your Big Day!

40 Must have photos on your BIG DAY!

Wedding photography was once about posing awkwardly in line with your new in-laws, but now with an endless variety of creative options available couples are increasingly ensuring their wedding memories are a nothing less than a work of art (after all they’re likely to be hanging all over the walls of your humble abode, for every visitor that pops round in the next 50+ years to see right!?).


With an added bit of organisation and a clear cut wedding photography agenda, brides can have more time to spend relaxed with their guests at the reception by simply ensuring they have some of their photos taken even before the ceremony begins. So, if you want to stick to not seeing your groom before you walk down the aisle, you can still get many photos dealt with early on and create a collection of some of those pre-wedding bridal moments with your nearest and dearest.
