17 Fun Wedding Photo Ideas That We Love

1)  Public Display of Affection

Roping the wedding party into a funny photo as if you and your partner are committing a very public display of affection is priceless. This is definitely one photo to put in a prime slot in your wedding album!

The word “bridezilla” is thrown around a lot, so why not poke fun at it and with a funny photo like this? Get the whole bridal party involved and the result is fantastic! Who could resist cracking a smile when they saw this in their photo album?

4) Long Exposure Photography

An undeniably beautiful photo effect, long exposure photos can be really, really fun to create! Just picture the scene: the couple stands perfectly still staring lovingly into each others eyes…and the best man has to whiz around them with a sparkler (bonus points if he tries to make the couple laugh with massive, exaggerated dance moves).

7) Balloon Drop

The first dance is a must-have photo for any wedding album, but a celebratory balloon drop (or even a confetti drop) adds an extra piece of something special.

Who said bouncy castles are just for kids? We love the moment below for the smiles and the bright and happy colours…and we have to laugh at how this gentleman must have had to hold down his kilt.

11) Trying to Pull Them Apart

We love this photo, as we can just tell by looking at it that the couple must be really fun people! It just shows that you don’t have to take yourself too seriously on your wedding day—it doesn’t have to be all perfectly planned formal photos with not a hair out of place, it can be a fun, dynamic moment too.

A photo of the bride in her gown and her bridesmaids in their dresses, happy and laughing and having fun (maybe dancing?) is a photo you’ll definitely want to grab for your photo album.
