Q. We're having a small, intimate wedding. How can we make sure we get amazing photos, while including our small guest list?

A. Lisa Kershaw says: In the last year I've photographed more intimate weddings than ever before, with guest lists of just six to 30 people. Small weddings often give you more control over your day, resulting in a relaxed feel and beautifully natural photos. There's no need for a long list of group shots with endless aunts and uncles, instead you can take the time to be with your close family and friends.

With a small group, I like to involve everyone in a confetti shot by having a semi-circle of guests with you in the middle to create a petal storm; this also works well with sparklers in the evening. You can use the extra time to go off with your photographer to take some lovely couple portraits that you'll treasure forever. You could even head to a special place that means something to you both. You might like to consider splitting the time for portraits – one half just after the ceremony and the second half later in the day close to sunset.
