Including photos in your wedding day is not only hugely meaningful and poignant, but they can also look incredible too. They are also one of the best ways to make the day feel really special and personalised to you as a couple.

There’s plenty of ways to incorporate photos, be it of yourself and your husband or wife to be, your parents, your grandparents or even to pay tribute to those who are no longer with us. If you don’t want to have a big splash with photos, then why not add a small photo to the bride’s bouquet or the grooms buttonhole? Simply displaying photos on a mantelpiece or table is another low key way to include them.

Don’t forget a wedding day is the coming together of two families, so don’t be afraid to go all out with a ‘family tree’ photo display of sorts.

If you’d like to chat about this or any aspect of your wedding day décor, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

In the Church

Pew ends can be a little predictable at times, so why not mix things up and have some photos of either the couple or the parents and grandparents as pew ends? Also consider having small keepsake style photos of parents or family members who are no longer here on the bride’s bouquet and on the grooms buttonhole.

Table Plans and Escort Cards

This may require a wee bit of planning, but the results are very much worth it. You will need to track down a photo of each guest and hang it up in a frame, set out in escort cards, or hang from a tree or display and have the table number on each photo! Alternatively why not have images of both of your as a couple and tie them to balloons and have them serve as escort cards or the table plan?

Table Décor

Why not have a picture of each of you at the age of each table number and display on the tables instead of table names? Or pick out a year in your lives and have this serve as the table number with a picture of you from that year. There’s lots of creative ways to do this. Why not have the photos under cloche jars? Stacked on your favourite books, or in a birdcage? Alternatively you could display retro images of your parents and grandparents. Or if you both have the travel bug then why not have a picture of you both in a different destination and have this as the table name?

Around the Room and Venue

A wedding is fundamentally the coming together of two families, so why not have a family tree of sorts if you have outdoor access in your venue. Simply post photos of both families on a tree. Or you could hang photos from branches, or display them on antique style doors or palettes. If you’re making your own DIY photobooth why not have some family photos hanging on it too? And don’t forget the wedding cake! There’s lots of scope to use photos instead of traditional cake toppers

    Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange solutions with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
