HOW TO INSTAGRAM YOUR WEDDING DAY!
Instagram is a wonderful way of capturing fun and informal photos of your wedding, taken by your friends and family, rather than by a photographer. It’s great to be able to scroll through lovely memories of your special day, while you wait for the professional pictures. You’ll also end up collating lots of photos that your photographer might not have snapped, and because of all the amazing editing tools and filters at the disposal of Instagrammers, the snaps are bound to look polished. Here are a few tips if you are Instagramming your wedding…
ONE Use your names to create a hashtag. For example, #GeorgeandChantelleWedding, you can have fun with it too – #GeorgeandChantelleGetHitched
TWO Check your hashtag. Before creating your hashtag, do a search for it on Instagram. If it’s been used by someone else, add something personal to your own hashtag to make it unique. The date of your wedding works well.
THREE Make this hashtag known to your friends and family so they know to include it when they upload the photos. That way, by simply searching for your unique hashtag you’ll be able to see all the photos your guests have posted. You could create some cute signs to dot around your venue on the day – a print out in a beautiful frame works wonderfully. If you’re getting married at The Spinnaker ask your wedding coordinator to do this for you.
