2. The fun picture

While posed portraits are great to hand out to the family, it's great to mix things up a bit with some funny shots, which can be used in the thank you cards. We love this tug of war battle between the bride and groom.

3. The first kiss

There's nothing as magical as that first kiss as man and wife. Chances are, everyone will be too busy clapping to take a picture, so make sure you get your photographer to capture the moment.

4. The details

While they seem really important to you when you're planning, you'll hardly have time to notice them on your big day, so make sure you get a snap to remember it all.

If you're lucky enough to bring your pet to your wedding, get them involved in the pics. Seriously cute.

9. The one-of-a-kind shot

Okay, so this couple couldn't really predict there would be a rainbow on their wedding day, but when they saw it, they made the most of it. Keep an eye out for quirky happenings like that and turn them to your advantage, like this couple hit by a blizzard

10. Getting ready

This doesn't mean having a photographer snapping away while you finish shaving your legs, but a lovely picture of someone fastening your dress will make a great memory.

11. The winning veil picture 

A beautiful veil deserves a moment in the spotlight as much as your dress, and we think this gorgeous shot captures the accessory perfectly.

12. The first look when he sees you walk down the aisle

You'll be so overcome with emotion that you might not remember this moment, so it's very important for the photographer to capture it. It might just be the only time you see your man cry like a baby (hopefully!).
