Tips for outdoor weddings
Here are my tips for outdoor weddings. Previously working as a wedding planner and now a wedding photographer I have been to a fair few weddings! Here are a few tips to plan your outdoor wedding.
I work with natural light and prefer it over fake flash imagery.
The dress can be cleaned so just embrace your surroundings and weather, trust your photographer.
Check what time golden hour is so you can get some beautiful portraits, sometimes it can clash with the wedding breakfast so if you’re happy for your photographer to interrupt and take you outside for 15 minutes
If you’re having an outdoor ceremony think about footwear especially for bridesmaids as heels and grass don’t always mix well.
Have a look for fun Garden games or entertainment to fill the lull in between the ceremony and meal.
Think of lighting for outdoors in the evening, this could be festoon lights or sparklers – making a great shot!
Confetti – real dried flowers work the best and are also good for the environment. Check with your venue that you are able to use confetti as some places do have restrictions.
Outdoor ceremony ideas – if you are using hay-bales for seating, maybe also add some blankets
