Sweepingly majestic and ever-so grand, don’t be overwhelmed by your stand-out venue! We share five must-have shots that cry out to be captured in your wedding album!
A grand venue with character and style makes the most perfect back-drop for your all-important wedding day photography with friends and family. Those in the know, the lovely people at Bijou Wedding Venues, specialise in gloriously decadent venues and know the prime sites in and around your stately venue for those must-have shots. Make sure you liaise with your photographer and go on a day’s jaunt to the venue ahead of time. Throw in a rug, a picnic, and a bottle of bubbly and you’ve just got yourself a romantic date too! (We mean, of course, with your husband-to-be… not the photographer!)
Whether it be a posed image or a natural shot captured by your photographer, an image of you both in the entrance of your venue will no doubt make for a great addition to your wedding photo album.
Your wedding venue may have a variety of elegant staircases, both inside and out, to use as the perfect location to hold your bridal party shots. Have your wedding florist decorate banisters, or, alternatively, lanterns on steps could be ideal, depending on your wedding style.
Entering the banquet
Being announced to your friends and family as the new Mr & Mrs, Mr & Mr or Mrs and Mrs is such a memorable moment of the day – it really must be caught on camera.
The dance floor
Your first dance will be a stunning moment to remember forever and having it caught on camera, surrounded by your friends and family, will make for the most wonderful of photographs.
The grounds and gardens
Does your wedding venue have a particularly special driveway or grounds that are simply out of this world? A wander around the gardens and grounds could make for some beautiful, romantic photography – weather dependent of course!
Psst! TOP TIP!
If you plan in advance, you could have your wedding photographer take one very special secret shot of you both holding up a ‘Thank You’ sign that you could then turn in to your wedding thank you cards.
