There’s so much planning that goes into a wedding and when it’s all over and the dust settles and you sit back to reflect on the best day of your life, the one thing you have as a permanent reminder is your wedding photos. Images which capture the emotion of the day, from reflective moments as you get ready, to the emotion of walking down the aisle and letting your hair down and going wild on the dance floor at the end of the night – your wedding photography will capture these memories and give you a wonderful reminder of your day. If you like the idea of having a mix of emotional and fun photos, why not add some props into the mix and really make your photos pop? Our Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have put together a list of their favourite props to really make your photos stand out!


Choose some illuminated letters and numbers, perfect to stand next to, in front of or peeping through! They add to the atmosphere as the sun goes down and are a guaranteed hit with your guests. Check out The Word is Love who have a brilliant selection of giant light-up letters and neon signs to hire.

Swing into married life

We all loved going on a swing when we were children and they’re just as much fun when you’re an adult! Dress up a swing with some floral accessories and watch people line up to have a go. Our swing at Delamere Manor has proved an ideal prop for many couples, and if you decide to have children at your wedding, it will keep them entertained for hours!


Balloons are a great addition to any photo – choosing either to colour code them to fit with your colour theme or just simply going for white. Whether it’s just the two of you or your whole bridal party, there are lots of creative ways you can add balloons to your wedding photography.


When getting married in the UK, there’s always the chance that the rain may make an appearance at some point during your day. And if it does, don’t let it rain on your parade, make the most of it, with some colourful umbrellas, perfect for hiding under and using to take some beautiful shots.


If you have a message you want to share with the world – it could be ‘Just Married’, ‘Mr & Mrs’ or even how you met, there are multiple ways you can incorporate that into your photography – from wooden letters to chalkboards or even scrabble letters. Bring your bridal party into the line up to spell out any messages and enjoy looking back at them for years to come!
