Family photographs- Who to include

Hi again!

Believe it or not, I am often amazed at the very short list of family photographs people would like on their wedding day. I’m not sure if it is from having only a few special people attending or the couples arent sure just how many people they are ‘allowed’ to have photos with.
Easiest answer for this one, it’s your day… Take as many or few as you’d like.
For those of you who would like a little direction, I’ve created a list that’s easy to copy and manipulate to suit your day.
Always remember to use family members names for the list for the photographer, it creates a more personal touch to your family photos for the day. People like to have their name called rather than Aunts and uncles from the groom’s side.
To get you started:
Bride & Groom
Bride & Groom with Brides Mum and Dad
Bride with Mum
Bride with Dad- these individual pics are great especially if you dont have a photographer beforehand
Bride with Brothers/Sisters
Bride & Groom with Mum, Dad and any siblings
Bride & Groom with Grandparents
Bride & Groom with Mum, Dad, Siblings and Bride’s side of the family- Any relatives who are there
Bride & Groom with….. This part you can shorten the list to specific Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents
Bride & Groom with Groom’s Mum and Dad
Groom with Mum
Groom with Dad
Groom with Brothers/Sisters

Bride & Groom with Mum, Dad and any siblings

Bride & Groom with Grandparents
Bride & Groom with Mum, Dad, Siblings and Groom’s side of the family- Any relatives who are there
Bride & Groom with….. This part you can shorten the list to specific Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents
This list does not have to be specific to family members only. If you have a friend who has travelled a long way to be apart of your day, it is a great time to have them in for a photograph as well.
A Group photograph of everyone at your ceremony means you will have a picture of everyone there so this is often a great idea as well.
Just remember when it comes to family pictures there are no rules. There are no rules to your day either in fact so make it personalised to the two of you and enjoy yourselves! Just make sure you have left enough time to capture everyone you’d like in your photographs!
