The confetti moment continues to stand the test of time. The throwing of confetti features at most weddings, at the point where the couple have just married and can start to relax and really enjoy their day. And what could be better than having your nearest and dearest shower you with beautiful natural petal confetti.
So, why not make something of your confetti moment. Break the mould and do something unique by capturing some alternative confetti photographs. Shropshire Petals share their favourite ideas…
Blow Petals at the Camera
Blowing confetti at the camera makes for a stunning photograph, and you can make this as intimate or as fun as you like. Why not get your photographer to capture you blowing into the camera and then groups of your guests too. After the wedding you could print the pictures onto separate canvasses as a great feature for your home.
Romantic Petal Path
What could be more romantic than walking on a bed of petals down the aisle towards your other half, to your favourite song or tune.
Scatter petals down a pre-made aisle or make one by lining each side with small glass jars filled with fresh flowers. You can scatter as much or as little confetti as you like to create the path, depending on how dense you want it to be.
Ask your photographer to take some photographs of you both standing on your path with guests throwing confetti over you too.
Just the Girls
Every bride wants photographs of herself with her bridesmaids, so use your confetti to make some fun memories. You could each take a handful of confetti and throw it up above you, allowing the petals to fall slowly over you all.
Confetti might be one of the first or last things you order, but many couples forget to photograph it on its own as a detail to remember. We love photographs of bridesmaids holding a handful of confetti, which will also make another great photograph for your wall. Just get your bridesmaid to hold her hands together to form a bowl, and then place enough confetti in her hands to fill them.
Fun with the Children
Are you having a flower girl or children at your wedding you want to create some unforgettable moments for? Why not capture some fun photographs of confetti being thrown over them. You can use some of your venue’s features, such as a swing or water feature, to capture some special moments.
Make the children feel part of the wedding by telling them that they will be having their own special confetti moment. This will definitely be a photograph you will cherish.
So, as well as your traditional confetti shot, don’t forget to keep a few handfuls of confetti back or order a little extra so you can have fun creating memories!
