What is a bridal boudoir ?
Bridal boudoir is becoming very popular as more and more brides look to give their groom an extra special gift on their wedding day. It’s very different from the pre wedding shoot on your wedding day which is all about capturing the excitement of getting ready on your wedding morning. A Bridal Boudoir session is a chance for you to look and feel beautiful! Dress in lingerie, playful outfits, or simply cover up with your veil to get some sexy photos of yourself! It is a great confidence booster, as brides to be can see how amazing they can look in the photos. My Bridal Boudoir sessions are very classy, and timeless.
However as these sessions are often as a gift for the groom, and my clients obviously want to keep them private, it is often difficult to show prospective brides what a full boudoir session involves : so with that in mind, I held a competition recently asking for brides to be to enter to win a bridal boudoir shoot FREE! The only proviso was that I needed to be able to use the images on my website, to try and give anyone interested an idea of what a full bridal boudoir shoot looks like. Shelly , who is getting married on New Year’s Eve was one of the winners.
I could have used models for my promotional photoshoot but I really wanted to get the message out that my clients are real women, with real body concerns. After treating Shelly to a full hair and makeover we set about creating the images that you can see below.
I would like to thank The Petwood Hotel for allowing me the use of their gorgeous Maple Room for the shoot – whilst I have a studio and boudoir of my own, I wanted the opportunity to shoot in a different environment! Thank you also to Shelly for being such an enthusiastic model for me – I hope you like the images! Finally thank you to my make up artist Katie who created the sultry look for Shelly.
