When the bride and groom both have big families, they can definitely expect kids to be among their wedding guests. In many occasions, children not only enliven the reception, but also play valuable roles in the ceremony. In South Asian weddings, the kids not only get to participate in the fun, but are also given the chance to get familiar with native customs.
With kids at your wedding, you can have fun photo-ops that highlight their charm. Of course, it is important to work with a professional wedding photographer who has vast experience (and patience) in working with kids, and in coming up with creative photo concepts. Here are some ideas that you can try:
Call of Duty
Have your ring bearer show off the precious treasures he’s assigned to keep, and let your flower girls pose with their lovely mini-bouquets or baskets. Consider cute photo concepts, like dressing up the ring bearer as a sleek agent, and showering the flower girls with petals.
Find a “mini couple” that looks like you and your groom, dress them up in outfits similar to yours, and take a photo with the adorable, younger versions of yourselves (visually, anyway). If your bridesmaids and groomsmen have kids, get everyone together for a group “throwback” snapshot.
Party Time is Play Time.
Don’t miss the candid fun that the kids will definitely have once the solemn ceremony is over. Capture their energy when it’s time to let loose and party!
