Framing Your
Wedding Photos

Relive your best day every day by framing your favourite wedding photos. Of course, you'll need some stylish ideas to commemorate your journey, so we've rounded up some of our prettiest frames, perfect for framing your wedding pictures.

Upload Wedding Photos

It's exciting - getting to view your wedding photos for the first time, but what use are they sitting on a flash drive?

Printing and framing these photos is a beautiful way to bring them to life for a new couple. Pairing moments together and telling the story using a series of gallery walls or hanging a single large framed picture in a prime location are popular ways to share the memories with friends and family.

However, before you jump into browsing all the beautiful picture frame styles we have, it pays to do a little preparation.

Choosing the photos

You and your photographer may have discussed the must-have shots before the day, but once the dust has settled and you've received photos back, how do you choose the ones you want to display? There's an art to assembling a list of pictures to have framed. Here are our tips for selecting your dream photos for framing.

Trust your gut & pick your favourites

First of all, do yourself a favour and go through the hundreds (if not thousands) of amazing pictures together and whittle down the collection, so it just contains your top 20 absolute favourites. Next, select another 30 or so key photos spread throughout the entire day. Finally, try to include scene-setters and photos of your closest family and friends. By curating a subset of images up-front, you'll save time and ensure you don't miss any of your favourites.

Colour vs black and white

Generally speaking, there's no rule for choosing between full colour or black and white photos. It depends on your tastes, your decor and the wedding itself. You'll want to reflect on the emotion and atmosphere experienced on the day; if the wedding were a colourful event, we'd recommend capturing this in the photography. On the other hand, if your wedding was more traditional or minimal, printing and framing black and white photos might be your thing. Mixing the two types can also work well in a relaxed gallery wall style.

The big moments

From makeup and cake cutting to the first kiss - certain must-have shots help to tell the story of your day. Here's our checklist of important moments to include:

  • Bride & Groom Getting Ready
  • Scene Setters - Day Event
  • First Look
  • Walking Down the Aisle
  • Couple Close-Ups
  • First Kiss
  • Exchange of Rings
  • Portraits of Key People
  • Portraits of the Couple
  • The Family
  • Scene Setters - Reception
  • Toasts
  • First Dance
  • Bouquet Toss
  • Party Time
  • The Couples Exit

If you feel like your initial selection is missing any of these critical items, go back and try to include some.

Work smart

There's no shame in framing the same photos if you've already curated many images for your wedding album. Because, let's face it, there's a sacredness to your wedding albums, meaning they usually end up in a cupboard under lock and key! So frame the photos from your wedding album with which you feel the strongest connection and save yourself a heap of time.

Think aesthetically

If you're creating a more structured gallery wall, you'll want to consider the orientation and colour of your photos relative to the images immediately around it. Focus on details and moments that pair well together, and choose a layout that suits your photos. If, however, you're going for a more organic look, your display doesn't need to appear carefully crafted - so try mixing it up.

Top Tip: Select one or two photos and supersize them - these framed photos should be simple shots with lots of white space. This helps to give your eyes room to rest and is integral to the overall look of the picture wall.

Choosing frame styles

After deciding on your absolute favourite photos, you need to find some frames and mounts that'll do them justice.

When buying frames for these photos, you'll need to consider two critical elements; the photos themselves (their colour, size etc.) and your existing decor.

Your decor

Each part of your home can have a slightly different look and feel, so first; you need to choose which room and wall within that room to display your pictures. As a general point, we find it wise to pair your frames with existing decor first and foremost.

Suppose you're creating a gallery wall above an oak sideboard, order oak frames. You can also do the same with accessories. Do you have black accents throughout your room? Use black frames. By framing your photos in a style appropriate for your room, they'll feel much more at home when hung.

For more information, try reading our picture frame buying guide.

Your photos

When it comes to matching your wedding photos with an appropriate frame, our rule of thumb is the more you like the picture, the bigger it should be relative to the others in your display. Bigger pictures should be framed using wider mouldings to maintain visual balance.

You might also find it appropriate to try and pull certain colours of your picture out with your choice of frame. However, we'd only recommend doing this with neutral colours like white, cream and ivory. Trying to match the exact yellow or green featured in your wedding might be a step too far and can be done more effectively with a mount.

Our suggestions

Finding the right picture frame and mount is an important task. After all, these photos will be with you for generations. Fortunately, we have tons of wedding-themed frames and mounting options to add a timeless finishing touch. Let's get started.

"Gold is a spectacular choice for a wedding. Paired with elegant white, ivory or black, it creates a striking, elegant look"

- Wedding Venues

Classic White. Paired back and beautiful.

Shop White

For newlyweds, turning a house into a home is a unique but time-consuming process. So when it comes to colour, white frames are a classic and neutral way to frame your wedding pictures. White is paired alongside another colour more often on the big day itself, so why not bring out this accent colour with a coordinated double mount? Alternatively, if you had an all-white wedding, you can continue the theme by pairing a simple white frame with a luxury deep bevel white mount for an exquisite and timeless look.

Mahogany, burl and walnut coloured frames are a more conventional and still popular option for framing wedding photos. These vintage/mid-century frames are a charming way to incorporate an abundance of character into your home, and they work beautifully when paired with photos with an equally warm hue.
