If you fancy adding some fun to your wedding photographs, check out these 5 ideas from Shropshire Petals for an alternative confetti shot…
The confetti shot is a magical moment you will treasure forever. It’s that first picture you capture as a newly married couple, where your loved ones shower you with beautiful confetti and then the celebration of your marriage truly begins. Are you looking to switch up your confetti moment and capture something a little different? If so, natural petal confetti experts, Shropshire Petals share 5 alternative ideas you don’t want to miss.
Go off with a bang
Wow your wedding guests and give them a confetti moment to remember with a few Confetti Cannons. They are fun, exciting and really easy to use. Get your bridesmaids and groomsmen to help your photographer set up the shot. Then on the count of three…one, two, three, quickly twist the cannon and watch the colourful natural petal confetti explode out. As the natural petal confetti used in the Confetti Cannons is small and light, it will slowly flutter down, allowing your photographer plenty of time to capture some unforgettable shots. Just think about all those amazed, surprised and happy faces!
Top tip: Discuss your confetti moment ideas with your photographer beforehand, as you only have one chance with a Confetti Cannon to capture something spectacular. Have members of your bridal party setting them off or even yourselves, the newlyweds!
An idea for everyone
The confetti moment is a great chance to get your guests involved too. Add uniqueness and personality by including entertaining props, photo frames and some extra confetti into to the shot. Let your guest go wild and have lots of fun creating some quirky pictures that will make you laugh for years to come. These pictures would be perfect for the face of your wedding thank you cards.
Just the two of you
You’ve had some pictures with everyone you love, but now it’s time to capture some beautiful shots with just the two of you; after all it is your special day! Arrange with your photographer to include time for some shots of just you and your new husband/wife. This moment could be serious and passionate or fun and flirtatious. We love seeing cute photographs of newlyweds that include confetti; especially the ones of you blowing confetti towards the camera or having confetti play fights.
What about the children
Get the little ones involved in the confetti throwing madness by giving them their own confetti moment. Supply them each with a Confetti Wand or a basket filled with your chosen confetti mix for them to play and throw around. This will give your photographer a chance to capture some adorable natural shots that will look super cute!
Video has become increasingly popular in the wedding industry, so as well as photography why not capture your confetti moment through videography. With video you can capture fun angles, which you can slow down and speed up when editing. You can also add your favourite soundtrack to the background too. To capture some fun shots, get your guests to blow and throw confetti towards the camera or even in the air so they can dance around whilst it slowly trickles down.
