At The Whole Bride, we understand that every couple dreams of capturing the essence of their love in timeless wedding photos. To make those moments truly unforgettable, we've curated a list of simple yet stunning additions that your photographer will not only love but will also make your wedding photos pop with charisma and fun!

1. Confetti Magic

Capture the joy of the moment with confetti! Opt for biodegradable options in your wedding colours for a sustainable touch. The burst of confetti adds a dynamic element to your photos, creating a whimsical atmosphere. Whether it's the joyous exit or a confetti-filled first dance, your photographer will appreciate the vibrancy and energy these colourful pieces bring to the frame.

"Confetti adds the perfect dreamy look to those first newly married moments walking down the aisle. The white confetti's a personal favourite, the classic white always looks good in every shot, no matter the background! A little tip - throw the confetti up just before the couple walk past you and not at the them! This way, the confetti will have enough time to fall down perfectly, for us photographers to capture the perfect confetti exit aisle shot! "

2. Sparklers Sparking Joy

Illuminate your love story with sparklers. These enchanting additions are not only visually stunning but create a magical ambiance. Consider a sparkler exit or a sparkler-lit dance floor for truly captivating photographs. The soft glow will add a touch of romance to your pictures, making them look straight out of a fairy tale.

"For night time wedding reception photography, sparklers add a dynamic flair and creativity to your photos. Especially during the couple’s first dance, or tunnel exit, where the light playfully interacts with the movement, creating lively and fun, memorable photos."
