In the run up to your big day, your photographer will ask for your “must have” photos. Normally these include one with gran and/or grandad, a full group shot, hen party group photo etc. However, brides often forget about those that are most involved in getting them to the aisle.
Some of my most favourite wedding album pictures are those of my bridesmaids, mum and I getting ready on the morning of the wedding. Some are hilariously funny whilst others bring a little tear to my eye, yet none of them were on my list as a “must have” photo – thanks Andrea (Angel NI).
So to help you all out, I have listed some of the most important, must have wedding photos you can get before saying I Do.
Getting ready with your girls
Getting ready on the morning of my wedding really was a group effort and I love this little shot which captured the mayhem. Everyone pulled together to get 1 bride, 5 bridesmaids, 2 flower girls and a MOB ready for the big day!
That First Look
I love that Andrea from Angel NI was able to capture this shot of my mum the first time she seen me in my dress. I would never have remembered a moment like this so I love that I have this image to look back on.
I cannot count the number of times I had my dress on before the big day yet the morning of your wedding it just feels totally different! This photo says it all. Phew. Almost there. 20 minutes to go. I’m starving. I will kill Carl if he’s late. All of the above flew through my head.
The Interfering Mum
The one big thing that I loved about my wedding album was that Andrea captured all our personalities perfectly! This photo sums my mum up rightly… She can’t help but step in if something isn’t right and things always must be perfect. While I’m biting my tongue. In 23 years time we will still be the same 🙈
No matter how perfect everything sits as you leave the house you will still have some final bits to fix at the Church. From mum to dad, bridesmaids to the guests I love seeing them fix my dress and veil as I missed those bits on the day!
The Candid Shot of your One Last Thought
Can you tell I’m nervous? I never thought about those moments standing outside the church before I walked up the aisle yet they made some of the best “real life” shots.
So there you have it. You can be sure your photographer will capture a million emotions on the morning of your wedding and it’s lovely to look back and remember all of the feelings and thoughts. I can’t thank Andrea from Angel NI enough!
Here are some of my most favourite female only, Pinterest stalking wedding pictures to help you plan.
