A River Trash The Dress

Are you wanting to wear your wedding dress again but cannot work out how to? Well i may have the perfect inspiration…

Well this newly wed had the idea of trashing her dress… i mean why not go mad, have fun and get some snaps too.

Thanks so much to Margaurita Photography for sharing her images today, here is what she had to say about the shoot;

“This was my first ever trash the dress, and even though I was excited to do it, it was also daunting. Wedding days keep you in the flow of things, and yet this time I had a bride who wanted to play to the camera (which I love) but at the same time trash the dress. I think it was the trashing of a very pretty dre ss that worried me the most ;-) But, we had an absolute blast and had fun working with different light/settings and levels of mud! ;-) Hair was done by Amanda from Ahead of Dexterity”


Here is what the bride had to say….

“Got married in Vegas in the Valley of Fire, just matt and I, no guests no one but us and a goat!! October 12th 2011. We got married in Vegas cause I am an Aussie and he is English and it was easier/cheaper for us to arrange to elope overseas. I did the trash the dress because I thought I would finish the wedding go and get my dress cleaned and boxed and then never look at I again…. And I thought what a waste of a beautiful dress so I decided to trash the dress. so now I have beautiful photographs to remember my wedding dress.”


Thanks so much guys for letting me share this fun shoot xoxo Lou
