Bridalwear and Shoes
Choosing THE dress
One of the joys of photographing weddings is helping a bride shine on her day, making her feel as beautiful as possible. Choosing the right 'dress' (or outfit) is key. Taking along a trusted friend or family member is important. Some brides even ask us to come along to help them choose!
Want some hints and tips for choosing your special dress?
Now one person that can be considered you new best friend is Victoria. Her bridal shop is in Abergavenny. Not only is she a wedding dress stockist, but she also is a dress designer. This gives her (and you) the huge benefit of someone who knows how to dress for shape and size. She is also a very lovely lady and will have you feeling comfortable in no time.
The Romance of the Veil
From a photography point of view, PLEASE consider a long veil, even if just for the photographs. This is the one day when you should look different from everyone else. Most importantly a veil gives you meters of romantic fabric to play with in photographs. So stunning!
For an absolutely stunning, handcrafted and bespoke veil, consider Daisy Sheldon.

Shoes, shoes, shoes... many ladies are addicted to them. Even if we could afford Jimmy Choo's, will they be right for us? The following blog video may just give you some things to consider...
If it is bling that you love, have a peak at Mi-Shu Bristol and speak to the lovely Lou. She can customise a pair of existing shoes or supply and decorate. Her specialities include sparkly crystals and decoupage (gluing pictures onto shoes). The results are stunning and very reasonably priced for something so unique to you:
