Wedding: Order of Picture-taking

I have always proven that during weddings, the picture-taking session takes as long as the wedding ceremony itself — sometimes longer! 🙂

My cousin SG got married to Julie today.  While going through the series of photo poses, I picked up the paper detailing the Order of Picture-taking. This has been a big help in getting things be more organized and prepared to their turns in front of the camera. I’d like to share this list, with a few additions:

Bride and Groom

Bride and groom with:

  • Priests
  • Both Parents
  • Parents of the Bride
  • Bride’s immediate family (parents, siblings, in-laws, grandparents)
  • Bride’s family and relatives
  • Parents of the Groom
  • Groom’s immediate family (parents, siblings, in-laws, grandparents)
  • Groom’s family and relatives
  • Male Principal Sponsors
  • Principal Sponsors
  • Female Principal Sponsors
  • Maid of Honor and Best Man
  • Secondary Sponsors
  • Bridal Entourage
  • Ushers, usherettes and choir
  • Friends

Considered the fun part of the over-all wedding organizing task, the picture-taking indeed deserved attention — even longer than the ceremony itself, sometimes 😉

  1. Thus stimulated on by the mysterious unfamiliar person, Santiago deserts his shepherd life to this adventure of discovery.
    He crosses from Spain right into Tangiers
    as well as even more, paying follow to the prophecies as well as surmounting challenges
    en route.

  2. Might be a stupid question. But what do you say when you’re calling out people for pictures? Like exact words, script.
    “May I call on the parents of the bride….etc” lol im so noob! I have a small job of announcing the sequence
