With weddings being very different in 2020/2021 and limited numbers being put in place, it is the perfect time to get familiar with wedding photo sharing. So many couples have had to rearrange their big day to have a much simpler affair, with lots having a small ceremony and hoping for a bigger celebration when things are back to normal again. So, what is wedding photo sharing? It is a super simple way of sharing your special day and precious photographs taken by people who were there and then shared with as many people as you want to.

How do you do it photo swap?

It is so easy, the bride and groom to be create a free page and then invite their guests to upload and share their photographs taken on the day and then these can be viewed by anyone who you chose to share them with. Wedding photo sharing is not only cost effective as you do not need to have a professional photographer if you do not wish to have one, but also the images captured on the day could be from behind the scenes and raw images that haven’t been posed for.

Minime and Luxury’s top 5 wedding and event photo tips when using photo swap.

A is for accessories: Aim to get individual shots of the shoes, the veil, the button hole.

B is for the bride: Getting ready, back of the dress, the first look from her parents, getting into the car, composing herself before walking down the aisle.

C is for couple: The aisle, the first look, ring exchange, the first kiss, the speech, the first dance, relaxed moments and of course smiles and laughter.

D is for Devil is in the detail: Don’t forget to capture those details, such as the invitation suite, the place setting, table setting, flowers, cake and food/drink.

E is for emotion: Capture the parents of the bride/groom, any children, close family and friends and of course reactions from the special day.


With the pantone colours of 2021 being illuminating yellow and ultimate gray it makes prom dresses the perfect alternative and often more affordable, to the more traditional wedding and bridesmaid dresses.

Prom dresses come in a wide range of colours and lengths: Short, knee, tea, ankle length, floor length, blush/sweep train, asymmetrical, court length or chapel train- giving you a huge amount of options to find a length that suits you.

Prom dresses have a wide range of styles such as: A-line/princess, column, mermaid, ballgown and empire, meaning you will have endless possibilities to make you feel like a princess on your special day.

The advantage of getting a prom style dress is you will get to choose from a selection of super stylish   prom hair styles, many of these feature glamorous curls and up-do’s, extension pieces and accessories. I would recommend getting a fresh colour and trim 7 days before the big day and don’t have a radical hair colour change after you have picked your dress as you don’t want it to clash, similarly don’t be tempted to have lots of hair cut off after your hair trial as it could leave you with difficulties on the big day.

When wearing a prom dress it gives you more ability to experiment with your make up as the dress doesn’t have to be traditional white, so you can pick up colours from your dress into your make up giving the opportunity to have smoky eyes from the pantone colour of 2021 and add a hint of sparkle – what girl doesn’t love glitter!?
