What can I learn from other people’s photos?
When looking at the confetti photos there are two main things you should consider:
The petals and colours in the confetti throw photos
Firstly, which pictures do you love the most? Then, you should look at which petal (or petals) the couple has chosen in your favourite pictures. Be sure to notice how the petals and colours look in the air. You might find that you prefer the pictures with a delicate sprinkling of petals. On the other hand, perhaps the splash of colour from larger petals is more what you are imagining? Most importantly, if you want to get that perfect picture, look at how they contrast against the background of the image too.
Arrangement and organisation of confetti throws
Looking at real wedding pictures is a great way to get ideas for arranging your confetti moment. Of course, you will be guided by your location and numbers of wedding guests, but you might just discover a new idea you hadn’t considered…
For example, you could make use of steps or balconies at your venue. Similarly, you might decide that you want to feature the lych gate of the church, rather than the doorway. You might also see a clever trick, like having the photographer stand above everyone to capture the confetti moment.
But look closely and the organisation reveals even more… Certainly, the photos where the happy couple are walking a pathway lined by guests throwing confetti, look more natural and spontaneous than the staged group shots. And, so, you might not be surprised to discover that this sort of confetti throw is much simpler to organise than a huge group of people throwing at the same time!
But, above all, the photos are here for you to get your imagination going. To help you create your own special experience. There are no rights and wrongs, and a little tweaking of the confetti throw “tradition” is no bad thing!
