Have Your Dog At Wedding

How do you include animals and dogs at a wedding?

Have a Paw-some Wedding Day!

So many of my Brides and Grooms have asked me for my advice regarding their four-legged friend on their wedding day. There are many ways to have your beloved dog take paw-t in your wedding ceremony, and they came to make some truly fantastic wedding photographs!

Save the Date, and buy a suit for Your Pet  :)

Many of my Brides and Grooms have an engagement photo shoot in their wedding photography package. Having natural photographs -( Documentary, reportage, Wedding Photography ) taken together as a newly engaged couple can be so romantic, and it also gives the couple a chance to get used to having their photograph taken before their big day.

Why not bring your dog with you and have him or her pose with your save-the-date information?!
They make for a really sweet save-the-date card for your wedding guests, and it’s a lovely way to include your proud pooch!

The Dapper Dog at Your Wedding

If you want to have your dog in attendance on the day of your wedding, I highly
recommend that you go ALL OUT! At the wedding party, all the glad rags will be put on. The groomsmen will be suited and booted, and the bridesmaids will be dolled up and ready for action. So why not include your dog in the style department?

Is there anything more handsome than a doggie tux or sweeter than a doggie tutu? Adorable!!!

Pets included wedding

 Puppy Love at the wedding

It can be very overwhelming for any Bride and Groom as the excitement and emotions of the day can take over. Pets are well known for reducing anxiety, so they could be the paw-perfect companion to spend a few moments with before you make your way to the church.

Dog Wedding day

DOG: The Best Man’s Friend!

If your dog is attending the wedding, he/she must be handled and managed. That means that you will need to include another person in your wedding. It’s a huge honour to be asked by the bride and groom to participate in the wedding, so this is a lovely job for a family member or a close friend. Not only will you get your dog there for you on the day, but you’ll also make someone’s day by inviting them to be part of the wedding party!

The Best Man’s Friend minder allows a junior groomsman to participate in the celebrations!

Bride Groom and Dogs

The Ring Barker

I have seen lots of dogs tasked with delivering the rings to the Bride and Groom during their wedding ceremony. Again, this can be a fantastic photo opportunity and a real crowd-pleaser, provided that your pampered pooch can perform with a crowd and is easy to direct. (The last thing you need is your dog running off mid-ceremony with the rings in his pocket!)

We Are Family

As all of your family groups together for the family portrait pictures, it can be a lovely idea to pose with your pooch as part of these portrait photographs. After all, your dog is a member of your immediate family, and dogs can make some of the most adorable photographs for the bride and groom.


As much as I love and encourage dogs at weddings, my only issue is for the Bride and her beautiful WHITE dress. Ensure that if your dog is attending your wedding, he/she has been groomed the day beforehand and kept clean within 24 hours. As much as you love your pooch, you will not be impressed if, after a cuddle on your wedding day morning, you are left with two affectionate paw prints on the front of your dress!!!
