Many of our brides choosing ‘trash the dress’ shoots say they’d rather preserve their wedding dress with a unique photo from a dramatic photo shoot, than by boxing it up in the attic.
And, the reality is, what bride doesn’t want a reason to put her beautiful gown on once again?
Trash the dress sessions are usually the most relaxed, romantic and fun shoots! They may be scheduled later in the evening if a villa wedding is hosted, or a day or two after the wedding, at any number of beautiful venues, subject to personal preference.
Even celebrities enjoy this new tradition, in fact, Jodi Albert who married Kian Egan of Westlife fame was the first to jump in the pool fully dressed, at their wedding, which we arranged in Barbados.
Other Bride’s feel that a ‘trash the dress’ session is a beautiful and meaningful way to symbolically honour their marriage, in that they will never wear a wedding dress again because they know they have found their ‘one and only’, and their marriage is going to last a lifetime!!
These fabulous images are possible without ruining your dress. If this is your desire, just let your photographer know, and a shoot will be arranged that requires no more than a little dry cleaning after the fact for your dress to be like new again!
