Want a fizzing good time?

Nothing signals that the party has officially started than the uncorking of a bottle of bubbly and sending it skywards!

So how do you create the perfect spray?

We share the best champagne sprays of 2019 along with some top tips from those that captured these moments about how to bring to life the perfect POP!

Photographer Sarah Godenzi recommends that ‘you open the bottle, keep a finger over the top of the opening, and shake like crazy while releasing the pressure’. At the same time she says to not ‘worry too much about the photographer, as they may get a little sticky but it’s all part of the fun!’

Though Katie Harmsworth hints that it’s probably ‘best to not hit the photographer square on!’ After all, you still want them around for the rest of the day to be able to capture all the magical moments.

Jerome Cole is wealth of information when it comes to top tips, so here goes;

‘Firstly – choose the bubbles wisely. I always advise the couple to purchase nicely labelled cheap-ish bottles of sparkling wine. There’s no point in spraying a vintage Bollinger everywhere – save that for drinking later!

As for the logistics of the spray’ – the couple should actually already have the bottles open before starting to spray and shoot. Yep, who’d have thought?! Just grab a freshly opened bottle, cover the opening with your thumb, give it a shake and then pull the thumb back slightly to let the spray out. If you shake the bottle and try to open it at the same time it’s almost impossible to time it correctly and control the spray (and yes, this is how it’s done on the podium of the Grand Prix!)

And lastly, the timing is key. I prefer to do a champagne spray towards the end of the reception (or at least mid-way through). By this point, people are feeling more relaxed and therefore won’t be too stressed if they get a bit damp, and the champagne itself is much easier to see when backlit at night.

Have fun experimenting!’

From a photography perspective, Alex Motta says in terms of tips on how to shoot this, ‘crop, have a fast shutter speed and snap snap snap away!’

Chloe May recently worked with a groom who had a little more experience in champagne popping and he said ‘use cheap champagne (as not to waste the good stuff), give it a shake and when popped, cover half of the top with your thumb whilst moving it up and down for full effects!’

In summary, here are our top tips!

  • Cheap Champagne
  • Decide if you will allocate a solo person to do the popping or if you want multiple poppers?
  • Aim and spray – keep it moving party people
  • Keep those fun faces on – although petrified faces can be hilarious too
  • Light delight – consider backlight or side light to catch the spray for best results
  • Accessories – give your groupies glasses ready for the pour.
  • Time it right – maybe execute after formalities when it doesn’t matter if you get a little or a lot of bubbles on your suit or dress.
  • Room to move – have an open space
  • Shake the s**t out of it and slay the shot
