Meet Antonia and Nick, not only a lovely couple but great fun to be around! We met Antonia and Nick on a beautiful, if rather chilly, Sunday afternoon for coffee and a stroll around the grounds of Elvaston Castle, in Derbyshire.
Choosing a photographer is one of the biggest, most important and ultimately hardest decisions of the whole wedding planning process. After all, once the flowers have wilted, the food and drink has been eaten and the ringing in your ears has faded from that amazing party, what are you left with as a lasting memory? That’s right, your photos.
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?
