Trash the Wedding Dress
I know this may come as a surprise to some of you, but trashing the wedding dress a few months after the wedding is becoming quite a thing! Some brides like to trash their dress for many different reasons. Some, because they had lots of problems with the dress in the lead up to the wedding, or had trouble with it on the day and a few just do not want it sitting up in the loft for years to come and there are also a few brides, who just want to have the fun of a Trash the Dress shoot. You can even decide how you would like to trash the dress. My recent bride trashed her dress at a couple of locations. Starting at the Seven Sisters Cliffs in Sussex then onto Beachy Head before finishing up in the sea. What a wonderfully brave lady Stephanie was and so much fun too. All you need is a good photographer, a hair and makeup artist to make you look extra special and a bride. The photographer on the day was Scott from The Edge. We all had the most fabulous day, such great fun with lots of laughs and we finished up the day with Stephanie, the bride, piling her wet trashed dress into a big black bin liner, ready for the bin. If you are considering trashing your dress, please get in touch and we can talk through some ideas, anything is possible!
