I’m not a wedding photographer, but there is something really special about a bride dressed for her Wedding Day. So why do it just once……… this is were ‘Trash the Dress’ shoots come in. Please don’t run away now, you don’t actually have to destroy your expensive and treasured gown, the idea of these shoots is to get images you’d never have the time or location to shoot on your busy wedding day, an excuse to get dressed up again, have a photoshoot in a special place to you and not worry about whether Aunt Maud will like the starter! That being said, water, paint or even a trip to the seaside can really create a long-lasting experience and images that might leave your dress less perfect than it was on the day. But we also have another option, my friend Claire Lawrence can rent or sell to you a ‘stunt’ dress if you really want to go crazy but want to keep your own dress in its box in the loft!!! Drop her a message.
So the other weekend Claire put her money where her mouth is and donned one of her dresses and jumped in the River Avon here in Malmesbury, we had a lot of fun and I think you can tell this from the constant laughing…….
Firstly Claire wadded around in the river before we got 5 children to throw water bombs at her, once soaked there was no going back and massive kudos owed to Claire for splashing around before lying down in the river in a slightly (very!) chilly September….
