Choosing Your Side: A Guide to Outdoor Wedding Seating

Bride on the right or left?

what if two brides or two grooms?

Believe it or not, there’s an art to choosing your side at an outdoor wedding, and it goes beyond just finding a comfortable spot.

Firstly, let’s talk about the wind.

Yes, that invisible force that can either be your best friend or your worst enemy on the big day. If you’ve ever attended an outdoor wedding, you know the struggle of trying to keep your hair in place as the wind decides to play its own symphony. To avoid any potential hair disasters, it’s essential to consider the direction of the wind. The last thing you want is for the wind to be behind you, causing your veil to billow in front of your face or worse, blocking the view of your guests.

So, what’s the solution? Simple. Ensure that you and your beloved are positioned in such a way that the wind is not directly behind you. This might require a bit of strategic planning and possibly some adjustments to the seating layout, but trust me, it’s worth it. After all, you want to look and feel your best as you exchange vows with the love of your life.

Now, let’s talk about personal preference.

While the wind direction is crucial for practical reasons, there’s also the matter of personal comfort and preference. Do you have a “good side” that you prefer to be photographed from? Or perhaps you have a particular angle that makes you feel most confident? Whatever the case may be, don’t be afraid to take your personal preferences into account when choosing your side at the ceremony. It’s your special day, and you deserve to feel comfortable and radiant from every angle.

And then there’s the matter of hair jewellery. Whether you’re rocking a stunning updo adorned with delicate pins or letting your locks flow freely with a floral crown, the placement of your hair jewellery can influence your choice of side. You’ll want to ensure that your accessories are showcased to their full potential, so take a moment to consider which side will allow them to shine brightest.

Last but certainly not least, let’s talk about family.

Your loved ones are undoubtedly some of the most important people in your life, so it’s only fitting that they have the best view possible during the ceremony. Consider seating your family opposite you and your partner so that they can see your faces clearly as you exchange heartfelt vows. Their smiles, tears, and expressions of joy will undoubtedly add an extra layer of love and warmth to the occasion.

In the end, choosing your side at an outdoor wedding is a delicate balance of practicality, personal preference, and sentimentality. Whether you’re considering the direction of the wind, your best side for photos, the placement of your hair jewellery, or the visibility of your family, take the time to thoughtfully plan out your seating arrangements. After all, the love and happiness that surround you on your wedding day deserve nothing less than perfection.

Tim and Colin’s wedding at Paracombe Premium Perry

Set against the picturesque backdrop of vineyards and the pear orchard, their ceremony took place in an open grass area below the dam, offering panoramic views of natural beauty. One moment that will remain in my memory is when their daughter made her grand entrance, a surprise that left everyone in awe. Instead of the traditional procession, Tim and Colin appeared separately, each walking atop the dam wall before meeting in the middle, creating an image reminiscent of a wedding cake topper. As they walked hand in hand toward Penelope, their celebrant, for a heartfelt and emotional ceremony, the love and happiness radiating from them was truly palpable. 

 

Paracombe Premium Perry Wedding

Testimony:

“Coming across Glenn’s website and viewing his gallery of predominantly nature settings, we knew he was the right person for our pear orchard wedding.  Glenn was very accommodating and extremely easy to plan and deal with. Throughout the process, we had no concerns or worries about the photography aspect of our special day”

Paracombe Premium Perry Wedding

“Glenn arrived, and rapidly cast his experience and professional eye over the venue, whilst creating an ease and warm comfortability between us. He felt more than a photographer, he felt like a good friend we had known for years, as he kept us at ease and laughing throughout, even our teenager”

Paracombe Premium Perry Wedding

“He sent a few samples to us within 24 hours, of which the fantastic quality, composition, lighting, colours and clarity left us eagerly awaiting the final photos in the weeks to come.  We wholeheartedly recommend Glenn” – Colin & Tim.

Glenn was very accommodating with our requests and vision for our big day. They helped us achieve what we were looking for and made the day very special. Thanks to you both for making the day so easy!

– Petra & Floyd

Where do we even begin! An absolute must location / package for those wanting a small intimate wedding! Glenn (and their behind the scenes crew) were amazing from the very beginning. We planned our wedding whilst living interstate, Glenn made this ever so simple and hassle free! The package was affordable and every little detail had been thought of. On the day, Glenn met timings perfectly and did this without being in your face during your special day. The planning and coordination was just perfect and everything you can ask for when planning a wedding. Communication throughout was thorough and clear. In addition, all staff were friendly, down to earth and kind – to the extent they just feel like extended friends involved in your day. Would not recommend anyone else!

The Rise of Wedding Content Creators

As weddings take on new forms, from elopements to micro weddings, a trend is emerging that adds a unique and positive dimension to these intimate celebrations—the presence of wedding content creators. Beyond the conventional roles of planners, photographers, and videographers, these social media-savvy professionals transform elopements and micro weddings into captivating, shareable experiences.

Why You Need a Wedding Content Creator for Your Elopement or Micro Wedding:

The intimate nature of elopements and micro weddings creates a perfect setting for the expertise of a wedding content creator. In these smaller gatherings, every moment is cherished, making the need for capturing candid, behind-the-scenes footage even more crucial. A wedding content creator becomes a valuable asset, ensuring that the essence of your intimate celebration is documented in a way that transcends traditional boundaries.

The Positive Impact on Elopements and Micro Weddings:

Seizing Intimate Moments:

Unlike larger weddings, elopements and micro weddings often involve fewer distractions. A wedding content creator specializes in seizing those intimate moments that might otherwise be missed amidst the hustle and bustle of a grand event.

Tailored Social Media Content:

Elopements and micro weddings are inherently personal affairs, and having a content creator ensures that the content generated aligns perfectly with your unique style and preferences. Whether it’s creating Reels or TikTok clips to share with a select audience, the content is tailored to reflect the essence of your special day.

Enhancing the Personal Experience:

The smaller scale of elopements and micro weddings allows for a more personalized experience. A wedding content creator can work closely with the couple to understand their vision, capturing not just the visual aesthetics but also the emotions and nuances that make the day truly unforgettable.

Creating Lasting Memories:

In the years to come, revisiting the moments of your elopement or micro-wedding becomes a cherished experience. The raw, candid footage captured by a content creator adds a layer of authenticity to the memories, making them even more enduring.

In the realm of elopements and micro weddings, wedding content creators are becoming indispensable partners, elevating the experience by documenting the intricacies of these intimate celebrations. Their ability to capture genuine moments and tailor content to your unique style ensures that your elopement or micro-wedding becomes not just a fleeting memory but a lasting, shareable story for years to come.
