The Winner{s} of the £500 Photoshoot with Rosewarne Cox Photography Announced

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk {www’s} best competition ever has now come to an end. Thanks sooo much to all the entrants for all your fantastic ideas, it was really hard for Shaneen and i to choose a winner. We have chosen one winner and the extremely generous Shaneen is going to offer a discounted shoot to another very lucky entrant and deserved runner up.
Nevertheless a winner has been selected and the winner of the £500 boudoir or rock the dress shoot  courtesy of Rosewarne Cox Photography is………….

Amy Gardiner
Here is Amy’s winning entry ~

I’m Amy, this is me (and my maid of honour eating the grapes!)
My fiancé and I are quite artistic (I’m a graphic designer and photography is a hobby of ours) and we’re far from traditionalists. For a while now I’ve admired rock/trash the dress shoots. I’m not a big fan of traditional wedding photography and neither is my hubby to be and we both agree we’d prefer a more unusual memento of our day, than the two of us standing in front of the camera smiling :)

We’re very conscious of having a low impact and un-extravagant wedding and I’ve managed to get an absolute bargain for my dress – an ex sample Charlotte Bablier tulip taffeta number for £99

, this is it (gorgeous huh?):

Since then I’ve been totally obsessed with trash the dress, I dream about it! I think the paint fight is beautiful but we’d probably jump in the river Ouse for the sake of art :D

This is what Amy and her fiance are hoping to recreate!!

Our fabulous runner up and winner of a discounted shoot is……….
Alexandria Peploe
Here is Alexandria’s entry ~

My husband to be is a big bookworm and movie buff and loves all kinds of literature. His favourite books include Alice in Wonderland, the Sherlock Holmes stories and The girl with the dragon tattoo. Some of our shared favourite movies are Indiana Jones and the Twilight Saga.

My idea is to incorporate those loved books and films into the boudoir shoot…

The Twilight Saga:

Fangs… Corsets… Old-fashioned elegance… maybe a soft toy wolf… ‘Bite me’ incredibly sexy feeling for a boudoir shoot and very glam! Many of the characters have lived from the Victorian times so a subtle victoriana theme – lace, pearls and tight corsets :-)

Shaneen and I are super excited and again we thank you for all your fabulous ideas! I cannot wait to see the results of the paint trash the dress and Twilight boudoir session – they are going to be amazing!! The winners will be contacted shortly with details of how to claim your prize.
