If you’re having an outdoor or Summer wedding, your photographs will look gorgeous displayed on a tree. Attach your photos to a roll of twine with some wooden pegs, and wrap around the tree trunk. You could decorate a number of trees, or simply just focus on one – you’ve got your very own family tree!
You don’t just have to include old photographs at your wedding. Set up a mini photo-booth along with an instant polaroid camera. Your guests can take their photographs and then peg them on some twine attached to a frame. Time to get DIY savvy! This is a fab and easy way of keeping your wedding guests entertained, and you’re guaranteed to have a giggle at some of the photos!
Alternatively, you could hang photo frames from the beams of your wedding venue. Use a variety of colours and sizes of frame to create interest. Mix with foliage and fairy lights for extra impact.
Displaying photos at your wedding can be simple too. Why not just hang rows of your favourite photographs along the walls, windows and door frames?
Rustic ladders are a fab addition to any wedding day. They can be used as part of your seating plan, shelving for your wedding cards and photograph displays! Put frames on each step of the ladder – this is a wonderful choice if you’re planning a rustic country barn celebration.
If you’re looking for something completely different, you’ll adore this idea. Create a botanical-inspired photo display – this can be a simple DIY task for you and your bridesmaids!

Stick your favourite photos along the ribbon and you’ve got yourself a unique photo display.
