Confetti Thows - Congas - Kisses - Capturing the Joy of a Wedding


Confetti Throws – Congas – and Kisses – Capturing the Joy

My Gallery of confetti throws, congas and kisses, capturing  the  Joy of a wedding .

My favourite wedding photographs of any wedding is most definitely the confetti shots.

They just capture that moment of sheer joy, love and happiness that everyone is feeling at the end of the ceremony.

The adrenaline is pumping and everyone is looking forward to a glass of something sparkly !

The smiles on people’s faces are also a huge affirmation to me that I have done my couple proud and that they, and their guests, are really delighted with their wedding ceremony !

A confetti throw is high on my list of ‘favourite things’ and will always bring a smile to my face as I hope it does to yours.

For this reason, I have created this Gallery  and try to collect as many confetti shots as I can from my weddings.

Although, its not always possible, to take a pic myself as metaphorically speaking, I’m always left alone at the altar at the end and can only capture the back end, I’m on a mission !!

Its also a good opportunity for me to showcase the work of some amazing and generous photographers and for you see see their individual and unique styles.
