As the happiest day of your life, no doubt you’ll want wedding photos which cover all angles. The key to the perfect wedding album is ensuring it’s packed full of all the special moments of your wedding day, and those detail shots, which could easily go unnoticed.
Luckily, if your photographer is a pro, they’ll know exactly what to capture, but just in case you’re wondering what to expect for your wedding day photography, here we round up those unmissable wedding day photos.
With both the bride and groom (usually) getting ready separately, it’s nice to capture photos of both the bridal and groomsparty.
No doubt you’ll have tonnes of photos of you wearing your dress, but a shot of it hanging up like the first time you saw it is iconic.
A portrait shot of the bride is the perfect way to capture those finer details such as hair, make-up and jewellery.
They’re often discarded after the wedding so you’ll want a good momento of them. From bouquets to buttonholes and floral displays, ensure your photographer captures them all.
Before jetting off to your ceremony, a few quick bridal portraits are a must to capture excitement.
Whether it’s a quiet moment shared between a bride and her dad, or that car journey to the ceremony, emotions are rife at this time.

Walking both up and down the aisle, is a dramatic shot, definitely worth capturing.
