It’s the one part of the wedding that many couples either spend a hefty sum on or leave the wedding venue to provide (usually in the form of a big red board with a printed tacky and shimmery name banner pinned on) as part of the wedding package. Photo backdrops needn’t cost you an arm or a leg nor should it be so boring that you’re better off without it. Add some personality and spark to your backdrop by using wallpaper – it’ll instantly transform a formerly drab looking photo into one that’s full of life. Love travelling? Go for a vintage world map. Floral addict? How about a Cath Kidston-esque print? The patterns and prints are boundless so narrow down by concentrating on your colour scheme and wedding theme (if any) or you’ll find yourself going off course.
