Bridal party photos don’t have to be predictable and dull!
One of my favourite poses, I use this for every wedding! This is a great way to get your wedding party to relax, whilst capturing your groomsmen and bridesmaids reactions. Give your other half a quick kiss, and let your wedding party cheer, for something lovely to look back on.
This pose is a simple one to prepare and looks fantastic. Whilst you and/ or your partner stand in the middle, have your wedding party form a V from you.
give me a w or m
Very similar to the V formation, but more dynamic, this is ideal for a larger group, and looks particularly good if you have fun with the expressions – from smiles to model poses!
Another great shot to loosen people up. Asking your bridal party to strut their stuff creates something relaxed and truly fun.
This classic pose is great for your groomsmen, simply ask them to pop on a pair of sunglasses and channel their inner celebrity!
All the groomsmen/bridesmaids
Not only is your wedding day a celebration of you and your partner, but also a day to share your love with your closest friends. Get your groomsmen or bridesmaids together and ask your photographer to capture some natural moments between your party.
a STRAIGHT LINE classic
This is a classic for a reason, however, it can be easy to look like footballers in a row. Don’t aim to have everyone stand shoulder to shoulder, but use a mixture of directions and expressions to create something creative. Find a beautiful backdrop and recreate a Vanity Fair type photo!
The bridal morning party
Make sure to leave enough time in the morning to get photos of the bride-to-be with her bridesmaids. This is a wonderful reminder of who your favourite people were, and how they supported you throughout your whole day. Channel your style – Keep it casual, or stay fierce!
The key to a perfect group shot is to get everyone looking great individually, and then combine them all. Mix things up with stairs or sofas to add some interest and personality.
PAIR it UP
Another classic pose that looks great, and is easy to channel your personality through – either serious or playful. Pair everyone up, or put together groups of three if you have an uneven number, and have fun!
