From the rise of selfie sticks, to aerial wedding photography, keep a look out for these 2016 wedding reception trends!


Aerial Wedding Photography & Videography

Reliving your big day from the point of view of your guests is one thing, but seeing it from a bird’s eye view is completely different! Ever since the popularity of drones (flying, remote controlled cameras), people have been coming up with new and ingenious ways to incorporate them into everyday life. Cue the wedding drone.

Book in aerial photographs of your wedding and your licenced photographer or videographer will deploy a small, but inconspicuous camera to take photos or videos of your special day from a bird’s eye view. These photos are often dramatic and are best displayed printed poster size or on large canvas. They’d make an excellent feature in your lounge or home office.

While they’re bang on trend, it means we’ll see more and more drone wedding photography businesses emerging, with companies eager to cash in on the popular photos. If you’re planning your wedding, this means you’ll need to beware! Not every bloke who’s invested in a drone camera can pull off striking aerial photographs.


Make sure you vet your photographer, ask to see examples of his work and have a clear idea of what you’d want from your aerial wedding photography. Do you want shots of all your wedding guests assembled on your venue’s lawn or golf course? Do you want photos of the ceremony ? Have a plan and find the perfect, qualified and skilled aerial wedding photographer to deliver your vision.
