Rock The Dress
A Wheat + Beachside, Striking Post Wedding Shoot

 Afternoon ;-)

I am so thrilled to be sharing yet more breathtaking photography today… i love this effortless and carefree romantic post wedding shoot. You may recognise the gorgeous Louise and Mark from their wedding i featured a little while ago, and it’s always a pleasure to do a follow up feature…. i love the end shots with the heart prop… CUTE!!

Thanks so much to the fabulous Green Photographic for sharing their images today, here is what they had to say about the day;

“Louise and Mark are really keen beach goers and surfers, and since they got married at Boconnoc (a little too far to go for beach photos on the day), they were very keen to visit the beach as part of their wedding memories. After their honeymoon in Costa Rica (we’re not jealous at all by the way – it sounded HORRIBLE!), we met them at Harlyn Bay in Cornwall for a photo shoot. These photo shoots are often known as “trash the dress” shoots – a term we’re not very keen on – this felt closer to a “cherish the dress” or a “rock the dress” shoot (although considering Louise went for a little paddle in it and the dog jumped all over it perhaps the phrase is appropriate!?). The dress is a Stewart Parvin and its definitely the best dress I’ve seen this wedding season (and I see a lot!).

We were scheduled to do these photos at 8.30 am before many people arrived on the beach but the weather was torrential – so we postponed until lunchtime. At the start of the shoot it was still raining and by the end of it the sun was out – typical Cornwall always keeping us guessing!

Mark’s late grandfather has a bench dedicated to him on the cliff top over-looking Harlyn Bay. Louise and Mark have a really sweet tradition of visiting the bench on regular occasions and having people take a photo of them on the bench from behind. Having a matching shot of them in their wedding outfits to add to the collection was a must. We set off to the bench with their beautiful dog Bella bouncing around joyfully.

After a few bench shots I was over the moon to discover the most beautiful field just around the corner. I love taking photographs in long grass or overgrown wild flowers, or wheat.”

Now i want to prance around a windy beach in a flowing dress ;-) big love xxxx

    The holding hands shot is the sweetest :) Oh I also noticed that the dog is always part of the picture, I think he needs to have a partner too ;)
