How to capture summer-themed photographs Credit: www.darklemoner.co.ukPhotographer Stacey Jackson gives us her top tips for capturing summer-themed images.

"During the summer months, the hours of daylight are longer, so make good use of it, especially the lighting around sunset, also known as the golden hour, which will create some beautiful warm tones and soft-lit imagery.

"Wearing light, airy and flowy fabrics will work well for a summer theme, as well as keeping everyone cool.

"Include seasonal items such as parasols, sunglasses and seasonal flowers that will not wilt in the heat, like orchids, sunflowers or roses.

"Capture shots of your guests enjoying refreshing cocktails or grabbing a beer from an ice bucket.

"If the British weather is on your side, then your big day might be an outdoor celebration. Garden games like croquet, Jenga or even an egg and spoon race will provide a fun and playful backdrop.

"Create a dessert station or hire an ice cream van.

"As the night sets in, why not provide some sparklers?"
