There something very romantic about a gorgeous wedding swing covered in fresh flowers, but if you think that’s the only thing you can do with swings, you’re wrong. And here are 10 inspiring ideas for sensational swing shots to prove it….

The bridal party is on the go all day, with lots of opportunities for great images – from a glass of bubbles to piling into the limo to head to the ceremony. Among all that, a swing shot offers a nice bit of calm – plus a chance to involve your pet too.

They say a kiss is just a kiss, but nothing could be further from the truth when delivered in such tender fashion. For something a bit more energetic, you could try a smooch mid swing – but first make sure your co-ordination is up to it.

On a day when THE dress takes centre stage, the height offered by a swing offers the perfect opportunity to climb on board and let the bottom of the dress fall beautifully to its full length to showcase any intricate and classic detailing.
