    Hello everyone,

    I hope you can help me with advice, ideas, recommendations, links etc.

    When my partner and I go off to have our wedding photos done I know this normally takes between 1to 2 hours. What can I do to keep guests entertained during this time. I'd hate for them to be board.

    What are you doing/ did do/ have seen that worked well?

    I'm getting married in November so it's likely to rain or been quite cold so outside games may not go down well.

    Any suggestions welcome and help greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,
    (Bride to be 28.11.19)

    Do you have drinks and canapés available during this time? If so then people will be happy to just mingle whilst you are getting photos. Another option if you’ve got any money left in the budget is to hire a magician/entertainer for a couple of hours or get a photo booth or similar.

    I attended a wedding where they'd hired a magician. He was brilliant, didn't need a stage. He started by walking around and interacting with the guests as they chatted and was quite funny too. Then for things he needed a bit more room to work, just went into the space he'd been allocated and by then the guests were looking on. It worked well.
