Trash the tux as well as the dress!!!
I had to write about the wonderful day we had today! We were booked for a trash-the-dress shoot, which we were very much looking forward to. We photographed her wedding and so we knew how easy going the bride was and also what good fun we had with her and her husband on the day.
We didn’t expect the groom to be in his wedding tux too..
We started off at a campsite where we were meeting the couple, it was such a great location with a park and beautiful coastal views we decided to start the shoot. She swung on the swings, went down the slide, even the death slide she took a shine too, she laughed and screamed and had a ball.
We then jumped in our car and went to an old tin mine, we have always wanted to shoot at, but never had. It was so peaceful there, the shoot took on an almost unrealistic feel, like we were cut off from the real world. So in their finery, they climbed walls, ran through wild heather, draped themselves across stairs. The end results were quite beautiful, almost the wedding photos you would really want to have, but would never want to put your dress through it!
The final location had to be the beach, we arrived amongst the August crowds and she ran into the sea (the groom did not partake in this!), her silk cut-on-the-bias skirt off the dress fanning out as the waves crashed around her. The shot of purple tuile that was under the main skirt flicked up as each wave broke. Quite mermaid like, quite stunning and a photographers dream!
She also had an evening dress that was worn at the wedding, she didnt want to trash this, as it’s a dress she does wear time and time again, but she did want a few photographs of her and hubby on the beach, as the February wedding was an evening affair, it was pitch black outside once the service had taken place so it didnt allow for any beach shots. We got some lovely work with outfit number two also, and when they saw the end result, both her and her husband were so happy.
We had such a great day and the bride was such a superstar and the dress……….well she bundled it into a Tesco carrier bag and said, I might take it home and dye it now, I may even wear it again!
