Rock the Frock shoot

I have been asked if I do ‘Trash the Dress’ or ‘Rock the Frock’ Shoots and the answer is yes!

What is it? Well it is different for each couple, however it is a chance to to do a post wedding shoot with the bride and groom in a location special to them with a real fashion shoot slant.

Why would I want to do it? Many couple’s do it for many reason’s e.g. they wanted to spend more time with their guests rather than getting their picture taken or the weather wasn’t great for pictures outdoors

Does the dress really get trashed? Only if you want to! Usually couples may want pictures at locations after the big day where it may be liable to marks that you wouldn’t want on the wedding day e.g. a beach at sunset

Arlene & Russell’s wedding

Arlene & Russell asked me to take natural shots with the minimum amount of traditional wedding poses. They had the service outside which was brave considering the scottish weather and half an hour before the service the weather wasn’t looking good, however in the nick of time the sun came out and it was beautiful for the service.

The service was held at Houstoun House hotel (http://www.macdonaldhotels.co.uk/our-hotels/macdonald-houstoun-house/?gclid=CN68ocXF160CFUQMfAodNUjbkw) near edinburgh.

It was a beautiful service with Arlene wearing a bespoke vintage wedding dress and friends playing instruments and singing throughout the day.
