Confetti is a favourite of mine. I'm not too bothered by any of the other wedding traditions but this is one I try persuade all my couples to do. 

It's an element of fun that involves everyone immediately after the ceremony, what could be better?

I also like the fact it was originally created in Italy (my favourite place) and was originallydone to wish good luck with fertility to the wedding couple. I like a good wedding fact (ask me about my bouquet fact at bridal prep!)

The more confetti the better really, I have experienced a handful of confetti through in a big group shot and it wasn't really right. So if you want to do this right, order x3 the amount you think you'll need. We'll use it all up I'm sure!


Katie and Matthew had a brilliant idea to have a confetti bar at their wedding, the guests chose their own mix of petals to use at their wedding.

And this was the result of their confetti throw:

As you can see I prefer tunnels, as there are more moments to capture and it's just a bit more exciting. 

Warning. Some guests may do this during your confetti throw:



But I always take tonnes and keep my eye on any tricksters!

I'm yet to experience a confetti canon (HINT HINT).
