Bride and bridesmaids throwing confetti in the air

How to Make Something of Your Confetti Moment

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.

A Colourful Wedding in Antigua, Guatemala

When wedding planner Pilu of Dream Events sent us the pictures by Alejandro Sandoval of this wedding we knew we had to feature it. Not only is this wedding fabulously colourful, but we’ve never featured a wedding in Guatemala before.

Sindy and Carlos’s wedding is full of Guatemalan culture; the historical church where the ceremony took place, the incredible textiles (you have to see the bride’s shoes!) and the Zacapa rum that was poured into the guests’ mouths during the evening festivities.

So vibrant and fun – just fabulous!

“Carlos and Sindy’s typical Guatemalan wedding took place in Antigua. It’s a colourful, magical and very peculiar village at the skirts of the grandiose volcano, Volcán de Agua.
