Champagne Bubbles: Capturing Your Newlywed Moment…We love that moment when a couple steps away from their ‘I do’s and pops the cork on their first champagne bottle as a new couple. There will be more bottles in the future with new homes, babies, promotions, and holidays. There was likely a bottle involved in your proposal! So this is one of those ‘must capture’ moments with your photographer. But how to catch the perfect photos?
Of course, it would be wonderful if every champagne moment was caught without any planning, but the truth is that the best shots have some thought behind them. Try to imagine where you would like your backdrop to your champagne opening and have the bottle and glasses there ahead of time. Make it part of the schedule that you will be running there right after the ceremony. Make sure your photographer is well aware of what you would like by sending ‘photo ideas’ ahead of time.
Opening a bottle of bubbly out of sheer joy is not the only moment that champagne can be used at your wedding. Think champagne towners, tiny bottles as giveaways, having a glass poured for each guest for a toast, dueling cocktail hour, and during pre celebrations with bridesmaids. Thankfully, we no longer ‘behead’ the bottles with sabers (yes, that’s from the French) but remember to aim away from anything you might not wish to damage.
The champagne bottle moment is an opportunity for newlyweds to take a little time out of an exciting day for themselves. Be joyful about the ceremony that has just celebrated their love and acknowledge the future that creates. So take the time to be sure you capture your first champagne bubbles as newlyweds – raise a glass to yourselves and the milestone you have reached together!
