Fun Photo Backdrops.

It’s the battle of the ugly photo backdrops for those obligatory group shots. Layers of cloth draped over a backboard with the newlyweds’ name pinned in the centre so that all guests can see. Why? Shouldn’t every attending guest know an easy fact such as the couple’s names? Answer: HK weddings are a big affair and usually guests are invited to a sister-in-law’s brother’s daughter’s wedding (go figure) and when they look back at the photos with the happy couple, they might well have forgotten who they were if it wasn’t for their ginormous names scrawled across the back. I will deal with guest list another time but today, it’s about inspiring all HK brides and grooms to think out of the box and ditch that boring, drab-looking photo backdrop and giving your photos a new life. Yes it’s difficult when space is an issue. If you’re lucky enough to have an outdoor wedding, please make use of your natural surroundings. If not, be inspired and think fun. Some are so easy, you can even DIY, save some dough and double it up as the increasingly popular photo booth (but bigger). Ever thought of using shower curtains?
