You probably won’t need our team at Sweet Gibraltar Weddings to tell you of the importance of visually capturing those special moments of the most special day of your life. After all, couples tend to hold Gibraltar weddings in large part because of the stunning backdrop and other conditions that the British Overseas Territory offers for captivating photography.
But what if you have a relatively small guest list in mind for your nuptials, of 30 people or fewer?
You might not think that the size of your wedding guest list would make much difference to your wedding photography – but keeping the number of attendees low can be a boon in itself for the snaps your photographer creates. Here are some reasons why.
It could free up money to spend more on your desired wedding photographer
The cost-of-living crisis has forced many of us to make extremely difficult decisions on spending across various areas of our lives. But one thing you might not be in a mood to compromise on when it comes to your upcoming wedding, is the photographer.
After all, it’s not as if you can settle for a so-so photographer for the day itself, and then have photos done again later once you have the money (if you care about your wedding photos being photos of your actual wedding day, of course). Once your big day is over, it’s over.
Fewer guests to make arrangements for, could mean greater scope to hire that wedding photographer you have really had your eye on, and to fly them over to Gibraltar.
Gibraltar presents gorgeous backdrops in a small space
You only need to look through our range of packages for Gibraltar weddings, encompassing the likes of our in-demand Botanical Gardens Package, and the Mons Calpe Suite Package that would put you on top of the Rock of Gibraltar itself, to see that Gibraltar packs in some utterly gorgeous scenery.
And your wedding photographer is sure to love playing with those varying surroundings for their snaps. Plus, with Gibraltar only measuring 6.8 square kilometres (2.6 square miles), there’s plenty of scope to simply wander around the territory and have spontaneous photos taken at random sites, without having to worry about getting lost or allowing enough time to get back to the venue.
You will feel less time-pressured, and more able to ‘go with the flow’
Let’s face it: if you’re stressed, rushed, and flustered, you won’t want that to show in your wedding photography. And the best way to guard against that risk, is to ensure you are not stressed, rushed, and flustered, at least during those moments when you will be smiling for the camera.
Of course, it’s practically impossible to prevent feeling at least some level of stress on the wedding day itself. But keeping your wedding guest list smaller can allow you to spend more time with everyone present, instead of feeling obliged to at least say ‘hi’ and ‘thank you’ to a much larger number of attendees, which could eat up a lot of your time and energy.
As we touched on elsewhere in this blog post, Gibraltar is a small, intimate place, with a small, intimate vibe. So, why not make the most of that, with a suitably small and intimate wedding? If you feel free to ‘go with the flow’ on your wedding day, and even perhaps take D-tours and arrange snaps you might not otherwise have had the time to take, your happiness as a couple is likely to show in your wedding photos.
