Confetti can be the perfect ingredient for adding a burst of colour or movement to your wedding photos and is a timeless way to bring your guests into your celebrations. Here's a guide to help you ensure that your confetti photos are not only memorable but are also captured perfectly!
Choosing the Perfect Confetti
Selecting the right confetti sets the tone for your photos. Opt for eco-friendly options like biodegradable confetti or delicate flower petals to add an elegant touch. I definitely recommend aligning your confetti choice with your wedding colour palette to keep it cohesive.
Top tip: Go for larger confetti. Even if you get lost in some of the photos, it makes the moment even more fun and creates an opportunity to tell more of the story of your day as you walk through.
Timing is Everything
Coordinate with your photographer to identify the ideal moment for the confetti shot. Whether it's immediately after exchanging vows or during your grand exit, precise timing ensures that the confetti moment is captured with ease.
Share your vision for the confetti moment, detailing any specific shots you desire. Trust their expertise to capture both planned and spontaneous moments, ensuring your wedding album reflects the genuine happiness of the day.
How to Get Your Guests Involved
Encourage your guests to be part of the confetti magic. Why not provide personalised confetti cones or small bags for easy distribution to everyone? Have a dedicated best man or wedding planner help coordinate your guests to create that picture-perfect moment who is aware of the plan too.
Capturing Genuine Reactions
While planning is essential, leave room for spontaneity. The best confetti photos often emerge from genuine, unscripted reactions. Allow the confetti to fall, get lost in the moment, and trust your photographer to capture those fleeting seconds.
Top tip: Keep your head up, smile and laugh with your guests. Trust me, you can walk in a straight line without needing to look at the floor!
Confetti is a timeless symbol of celebration. With careful planning, open communication with your photographer, and a touch of spontaneity, your wedding confetti photos will highlight the happiness of your special day, creating lasting memories for you and your loved ones.
