Wedding Wednesday - How to Include Your Pets in Your Wedding Photos

June 22, 2016

We all love our pets. They arrive in our homes and quickly become part of the family, even as they’re busily destroying that antique from ebay with their claws or using your curtains as a scratching post. We wouldn’t have it any other way. As such, when it comes to organising a wedding ceremony, many want to include their pets but have no idea how to do it. Say no more! Here we look at how to include your pets in your wedding photos!

…by using wedding photos.

How to include a dog on your wedding day

Dogs are one of the most popular pets in the UK and due to their obedience (for the most part…), they can be utilised in a variety of different ways!

They can direct your guests to a seat.

They can get involved in the ceremony…

Or maybe they can sit this one out.

They could be the ring bearer!

Or even be included in the vows themselves.

You can add their likeness to the wedding cake!

And include them as a prop in the photo booth.

How to include a cat on your wedding day

Including your cat in your wedding ceremony is going to be a difficult task, primarily because a cat will do whatever they want no matter how nicely you ask. Even so…

Allow your cat to walk down the aisle with you.

You can also hold them during the ceremony.

Perhaps use any kittens you have lying around as a bouquet.

But maybe don’t throw them (note: this is photoshopped!)

How to include other pets on your wedding day

To be honest, when coming up with this blog, we only really thought of dogs and cats. But if you’re a fan of all things animal and happen to have access to a farm or zoo for your big day, then you can put all of these animals to good use (should you so desire).

You could arrive on a horse.
