Creative confetti - the ultimate guide to a fun, photogenic confetti photograph

Some of the most amazing, spontaneous, photogenic moments at a wedding often happen when the couple just married and are in a flurry of confetti!

Whilst now it’s a fun moment for guests to toss confetti in the air, the tradition actually started in Italy when throwing petals or rice at the happy couple was a sign of prosperity and fertility. Today, the confetti shot comes in a variety of shapes of sizes and sometimes these don’t even involve confetti but other unique and colourful creations (more on that later!)

So when and where should we do a confetti shot? How do we go about organising it?

How many of you wish, or have wished, for an outdoor ceremony in the the middle of a whimsical, fairy tale woodland? But risking the good old British weather put you off. Well, Laura and Ashley took that brave chance for their September wedding and had their wish granted! It was touch and go on the day, with the skies threatening to open, but at the last minute the registrar declared, “You shall be married outside” and saved the day. Hooray!
