Why wedding photography will always need flowers


After the bride-to-be has obsessed over the type of dress they will wear down the aisle, their next thought is always about the bouquet; what type of flower they will have and how they will match the colour scheme.

Wedding flowers and photography

‘But flowers don’t end at the bouquet; through the lens of a camera, flowers can transform your wedding photos from mediocre to photos that everyone will gush over for generations to come’ says Michal, a Doncaster wedding photographer.

‘Wedding photographers capture trends that come and go, but flowers remain a firm favourite.’ – says Annie, considered by many couples, the best wedding florist in Long Island NY.


Below are just a few ways you can use flowers to add the finishing touches to your big day and make your photos stand out for all the right reasons:

  1. Something blue- Following tradition, many brides decide to wear something blue, whether that be through jewellery, shoes or clothing. Why not inject some blue into your bouquet? A single stem of forget-me-knots, cornflowers or hydrangeas can be the finishing touch your bouquet and photographs are crying out for.
  2. Wedding décor- Who said flowers were exclusively for the bouquet? Use flowers to enhance your entire day, from beautifully lining the aisle in your ceremony photos, to adding the finishing touch to your tables at the wedding breakfast. Flowers are the perfect backdrop for photos of your guests mingling throughout the day.
  3. Hair accessories- Flower crowns are becoming more and more popular with brides, adding a touch of boho to any wedding. If you’re having a spring or summer wedding, opt for roses and peonies to give a soft, romantic look. Winter berries, orchids and eucalyptus are just a few of the options if you are having a winter wedding! Flower crowns are the perfect way to spruce up your ‘getting ready’ photos.
  4. Favours- Step away from the sugared almonds and give your guests a favour to remember. A flower in a miniature vase, a potted plant, or even a cactus are just a few of the ways your guests can take home a part of your special day. A shot of your flowers all lined up would be a dream for any wedding photographer to capture!

However you choose to incorporate flowers into your wedding, never underestimate their value in your wedding photos. Flowers can transform any photo album regardless of a wedding’s colour scheme, location or budget.
