Our Favourite shoot of the day, always fun & full of colour
The tradition of throwing confetti over the bride and groom comes from Italy. Before paper confetti, there were flowers, petals, grain or rice thrown at the happy couple, to bestow prosperity and fertility. These days confetti comes in all shapes and sizes, colours and textures, and you can still buy natural petals, which remain the most popular type, and certainly the most Vicar- and venue-friendly! Many modern brides make confetti their DIY wedding project by drying their favourite flower petals before the wedding.
I am often asked what my favorite part of a wedding is; it’s just got to be the confetti shoot, its full of color, action & fun, I just love this, every one wants to be involved in this part of the wedding, from Grandma to the children.
Many newly weds enjoy the confetti throwing as part of their big day; nowadays most venues request biodegradable types, which are readily available.
We always bring along extra boxes of confetti just for this shot.
