Snap Happy Weddings: 10 stunning wedding images to inspire love & fun!

September 04 2015
After being inspired by this week’s Who’s Your? interview with Emily Abay and her beautiful images (get lost in her work on Instagram), we’re on a photo high here at WY? HQ! The office is also abuzz with all things bridal, as our Design Director counts down to her summer wedding in Melbourne’s picturesque Yarra Valley.And of course, your wedding photography is one of the most important aspects of your big day. Receiving your images is often such an exciting time for newlyweds, and they reminisce on their special moments together, and even see parts of the reception they missed – their guests having fun and other moments taking place at the party!

We’ve scoured Instagram (when has it ever been easier to source fabulous creative ideas for events?!) to find the most beautiful and creative wedding photography ideas so that your Facebook album is one people are excited to see in their Newsfeed!

1. The pure joy, the sparklers, the casual vibe – we love everything about this fun first dance picture by Benji Haisch

7. Location, location! A stunning backdrop such as the mountains in behind Malibu’s premium vineyard @maliburockyoaks sets the scene for some incredible wedding pictures, like this one shot by Erich McVey . Recreate this where you can in your own wedding scenery – there’s something magical about realising the sheer magnitude of nature!

8. A wedding is really a big party to celebrate your love with your nearest and dearest, and a party is usually how it ends up closer to midnight! Think dancing, drinks and good times to last a lifetime! We love this party moment captured by Kate Headley – love, fun, and dancing in the rain!

9. Don’t miss the minor details of your day! Brief your photographer on capturing photos that also highlight the finer aspects of your day, such as your bouquet, rings, shoes and of course your dress! We love the focus of this picture on the bride’s stunning ring, image by Melbourne-based photographer Guy Evans
