If you want to wear your wedding dress one more time then this is for you!
Wedding dresses usually end up dry cleaned and packed away in a box on top of the wardrobe. Never to be worn again. I know mine is!
Every now and then I take a peak and peel back the tissue to look at my stunning wedding dress. On our wedding day we had very little time for photographs of just the two of us.
This is a trend that seems to have become the norm. Photography time is always the time that is squeezed.
Here at NKP we work out a carefully scheduled plan for your photography but ‘wedding time’ routinely happens.
We often ask our couples to come out for further photographs in the down time between dinner and the evening reception and we take the most exquisite photographs creating a second set of portrait images for their Wedding Stories.
But what happens when you want something a little bit different? Or a little bit more daring? Or in a location that was logistically impossible to get to on your wedding day?
This is where a Post Wedding Shoot comes in…
Your wedding dress (no matter how much is cost!) has already done its job and therefore to get the opportunity to wear it again, do something different and have further stunning photographs taken is something you might want to consider.
I’ll work with you to create stunning images and ideas that might not have been possible on your wedding day.
We can add all sorts of additional dynamics into the photo shoot such as pets, hobbies, etc.
The term ‘Trash The Dress’ is probably one you’ve heard of and this is just that. However we don’t trash the dress (unless of course you want to!).
This is open to anyone, not just clients whose weddings I have already photographed so do get in touch!
The lovely Rachel and Jamie got in touch for a post wedding shoot. Here’s what they had to say…
“Nikki and I have known each other for many years. After being the photographer on my first fashion shoot back in 2012 we became quick friends and formed an unbelievable bond- I swear we have a telepathic connection at times!
We have worked together on many shoots over the last 7 years so it was a very easy decision to have her as our wedding photographer.
Jamie and I married in February, on a chilly and very snowy Sunday.
It was beautiful and so very special to have Nikki capture the amazing moments throughout our day but also for her to be there as my supportive, and wonderfully talented friend too.
Our wedding photographs were utterly perfect in every way, they are so treasured now not just by us but by both of our families too.
However with the weather not being so grey on our wedding day it quickly became apparent to us that it would be a dream of ours to put some colour into our wedding photographs, some sunshine!
And maybe some colourful summer flowers.
We wanted the best of both worlds!
To also create more memories and be back in that moment of becoming husband and wife.
Everyone wants to re-live their wedding day don’t they?
We approached Nikki with the idea of maybe doing a summer post wedding shoot. Of course she jumped at the chance to get her creative hat on!
Nikki arranged everything and put us so at ease that all of our ideas will be taken care of!
We had a fantastic day, the shoot was a complete success, and all created at Lords Of the Manor hotel in Upper Slaughter (Cotswolds). This was the most beautiful backdrop and looked stunning in the summer sunshine.
We now have the most beautiful collection of summer photographs to treasure alongside our winter wonderland wedding photos.
Rachel and Jamie’s post wedding shoot was also featured in Your Glos & Wilts Wedding Magazine!
Nikki continues to blow us away with her talent, every time I see her work I can’t help but feel emotional.
Nikki will listen to your ideas, and will talk through your vision with you.
She will bend over backwards to make your dreams become reality and for us she has done that not just once on our amazing wedding day, but now twice with this gorgeous shoot full of stunning shots of my me and my husband.
We are so grateful for these memories, we will honestly treasure them for the rest of our lives and also treasure you Nikki for making our dreams come true. We love you ♥️ xx”
