I haven’t featured a rock the dress in what feels like forever, so i thought today would be a good day to change that ;-)
Photographer Kathryn wanted to shoot a rock the dress and so asked her friend Emma who jumped on board. I love this shoot which simply shoot, with beautiful images, gorgeous styling and a lot of fun.
Thanks so much to the fabulous Kathryn Edwards Photography for sharing her images with us today, here is what she had to say about the shoot;
“Although the ROCK THE FROCK concept has been around for a while now, it is something I am fairly new to. Thinking the concept would be wonderful for my portfolio and brilliant fun, I approached some married friends of mine and pitched the idea to them. I asked how many of them still had their wedding dress gathering dust in their wardrobe? Who would relish the chance to put it on again and do the sort of photo-shoot they may never have had the chance to do at their wedding? Who would like to ROCK THE FROCK or TRASH THE DRESS? The response was over-whelmingly positive, although most decided they didn’t actually want to trash the dress, admitting to a fondness for it that meant, quite understandably, they didn’t really want to ruin it. One even said she loved her dress even more than her husband! This made me laugh, and also made me realise what a fantastic concept this was, and what potential for creativity and to really show off that wedding dress. One friend wanted to do a shoot on horseback (watch this space!) another rock-climbing, and some wanted to do a shoot in muddy fields with wellies on. Emma lived closest to me and so we decided to visit the local Newstead Abbey (Lord Byron’s place of birth) which has a pretty little maze that put me in mind of Alice in Wonderland. So with that very loose theme in mind, we wandered around the grounds on a very cold December morning, and I snapped away as Emma braved the weather. My trusty teapot came in handy again (I am very fond of this prop, and have used it before http://
whimsicalwonderlandweddings.) as did my stripy gloves that I gave Emma to wear because of the cold. They actually ended up looked pretty good with her wedding dress. The shoot was so much fun. I was really pleased with the results and can’t wait to do more.” com/2011/12/katheryn-edwards- photography.html
Here is what Emma had to say…
My dress was an Ian Stuart dress, I knew I wanted something that looked vintage and I fell in love with the antique lace of my dress and the gorgeous subtle gold colour of the silk and lace that made it look vintage. I jumped at the chance to wear my dress again! It was lovely to use the umbrella I never got to use due to all the sunshine on our wedding day and I loved the Alice in “winter” Wonderland fairytale theme and was great to feel like a princess again.
Thanks so much to Emma and Katherine for letting me share these images today xoxo Lou
