How? The main focus is on the bride. The bride can either wrap around the groom’s neck or shoulder. While doing this, the bride can choose to look at the camera or away from the camera (Looking away from the camera looks more natural). Hello guys, your work is even easier! Just hug her and sniff next to her ear.

How? A little more strength is required from the groom so be sure he can lift you up. The groom has to lift up the bride’s bottom while the bride can chose to do the eskimo kiss (See no.1) or smooch it (See No. 20). For a more romantic and intimate pose, only if the bride is wearing light clothing (not the heavy wedding gown), she can lift up one of her leg quickly in an angular pose when the groom lift her up.
