Written by    Last updated: July 28, 2016

You want a photo album that is fit to burst with amazing photos from your big day, but what poses are you going to strike? Well here are 12 city wedding photo ideas that you have to try!

The round windows that many of the city’s older venues have are perfect for lounging in as well as letting in some natural light! Just make sure that you ask permission first.

If you’re getting married in London, you have to have a picture with a red London bus. You will seriously regret it if you forget to get this shot.

If you can get to the venue before any guests, an empty venue can create the setting for some truly breathtaking pictures.

Street art or petty vandalism, graffiti divides people’s opinions, but everyone can agree that it makes an amazing modern backdrop!

The dip is one of the most beautiful wedding pictures, so don’t waste it in a dimly lit dance floor! Use it to show off the amazing architecture of your city venue.


Just because you’re getting married in the city doesn’t mean you can’t have a wonderful floral shot! Gather all your flowers together and bring the outdoors to your wedding photos.

There is a unique beauty to a city’s skyline at night, so remember to use it as a background for your urban wedding reception.

The world moves so quickly, sometimes it’s nice to slow things down with the one you love. A high exposure crowd shot shows that your partner is the calm in the crazy storm of life.

When you are newly wed you want to share it with the world and what’s the best way to announce you marriage? By standing in front of the city together!

The buildings in large cities tend to be tall, creating that amazing skyline, so they have a lot of stairs. Use the hundreds of steps to your advantage with an aerial shot of you and your beloved.

While kisses do make cracking photos, there is an underappreciated sweetness that comes from just holding your beloved’s hand.

You can’t have a wedding without guests, so make sure you include them in your photos. This group shot on a roundabout is a fantastic way to include everyone in one picture.
