Photographing your wedding rings: 5 ideas for your photographer's list

Planning a photo list for your wedding? Don't forget your all-important wedding rings. Here are 5 photo ideas to capture on your big day.

1. Solo.

Your rings are works of art in their on right, so why not make them the star of the shot. A photo of just your rings makes a beautiful momento of the items that mark the moment you say "I do".

4. Flowers.

Where there's a wedding, there's usually flowers, which create a beautiful backdrop for your sparkly wedding rings. Include a dramatically beautiful shot of your engagement ring too, for good measure.

5. Location.

Choose a location that means something special to the two of you, to take a memorable photo of your rings. Take a trip down memory lane to your favourite moment in your relationship, like the place you met, the place you got engaged, or a symbol that represents them.
