Your wedding day is a special occasion filled with love, joy, and attention to detail. Among the many moments you’ll cherish, ensuring we capture the perfect wedding invitation flatlay of your stationary and accessories holds a unique significance. This blog will explore why this photo is essential and provide you with a guide on how to prepare for this so on the morning of your big day you can sit back and let me work my magic.
Your wedding invitation and accessories symbolize the beginning of your journey as a married couple. Capturing a visually stunning flatlay allows you to preserve these cherished memories and reflect on them for years to come.
The flatlay photo showcases the intricate details of your wedding invitation and carefully curated accessories. It highlights the thought and effort you both put into every element, displaying your personal style and setting the tone for the entire event.
Your wedding day is a reflection of your unique love story. The flatlay allows you to showcase your wedding theme, color palette, and overall style. By carefully arranging your invitation and accessories, we can create a cohesive narrative that sets the tone for the day’s celebrations and leaves a lasting impression on your guests.
To ensure you don’t need to worry about a thing on the day, or have me ask where ‘XY and Z’ are whilst your glam squad are getting you ready, it’s important to have thought about your detail shot in advance. I recommend all my brides gather items the night before and ensure a member of the bridal party (usually the Maid of Honour) knows where everything is and can pass it to me during bridal prep. You need to think about:
Natural lighting is key to achieving a soft and flattering ambiance for your photo, it would be amazing if we can find a location at the bridal prep address with ample natural light, preferably near a window. If you can think of this spot ahead of time and ensure it’s fairly clear on the day it will make my job 10x easier. However, I know there are a million and one things to prep for on your wedding day so if I need to get creative on arrival I’m very well equipt to.
The wedding invitation flatlay holds great importance as a memory, and showcases the attention to detail put it by you to create a cohesive narrative for the day’s celebrations. By following the preparation guide outlined above, you can help me create a visually stunning and meaningful image that encapsulates the essence of your special day. Embrace the opportunity to showcase your style, personality, and the love you’ve poured into every element of your wedding.
