Wow, what a day. It started off wet and raining and then the afternoon was just perfect. Blue skies, fluffy white clouds and wind, lots and lots of wind!
Liz, a fellow photographer, and her husband, Rich, came down to Kent so that Liz could “Rock her Frock”. This is an idea which has crossed the pond from the United States and is becoming more popular in the UK. The idea is that a bride can wear her dress again, not worry too much about the bottom getting dirty and get more creative shots than may have been possible on her wedding day.
Shots like this, at Tankerton Slopes:
Or perhaps this one, shot at Seasalter:
I have to explain that in this shot, Liz was wearing a veil kindly lent to me by my best friend Kate. I had promised to look after Kate’s veil and I knew that it would be perfect for this shot. However, the wind decided to take the veil and blow it away onto the shingle at Seasalter. Luckily Rich downed tools, jumped off the pier and charged after it! And no damage at all. This picture actually captured the moment that the veil flew away – hence the rather scared expression on Liz’s face!
Near Faversham there are some really beautiful places to shoot:
And just along the coast, we have Tankerton Slopes:
So before you get your dress dry-cleaned and packed away, put it on one more time and let’s be creative!
