This is such a simple yet brilliant idea…
All you need is a printer, some card, pencils and a disposable camera!

Send children on a photo scavenger hunt with this game of i-spy!
They have to spot a variety of typical wedding day occurrences / outfits and tick them off on their list. This works really well for older children 7-11 who will be able to do this independently but younger children will need adult help or help from older siblings.
(I recommend using pencils rather than felt tips as you could end up with felt tip stains all over their hands, clothes and the table cloths ~ and you wouldn’t want felt tips anywhere near your pristine white dress!)
If you wanted to, you could provide a little incentive such as a small bag of sweets or a pound shop toy for the first child to find all the things on the list or simply give the treats to the children’s parents for them to hand out as they see fit.
Staying focused on this task will be tricky for some children – especially younger children so parents could reward them when they feel they’ve tried their best.
