Boudoir shoots can be a great way to feel good, get some confidence, feel comfortable in your skin or even just feel a little bit pampered...and there is no better time to get some pampering than in the run up to a wedding!
When we were planning our own wedding, someone suggested to me that a bridal boudoir shoot might be a nice way to feel good and make a keepsake gift for the other half, and I must admit at first I was a bit unsure. Especially given that I am a photographer myself, I'm definitely more comfortable behind the camera than in front! However after a slightly prosecco fuelled shopping trip for my bridal lingerie I thought...why not!
I enlisted the help of one of my wonderful photographer buddies to shoot my bridal boudoir shoot in the comfort of my own home...and I have to say I'm so pleased I did it! It gave me a little much needed confidence boost in the run up to the wedding and I'm so happy I have those photos to look back on when I'm older! Plus I got them put into an album and they made a lovely gift to send to my husband to be before the ceremony! I thought a boudoir shoot might be a little self involved, or a bit too cringey for me, but I was wrong! After all my years of experience working in boudoir studios it wasn't really until I had done it for myself that I really got what it was all about...just feeling good!
Recently we got the chance to shoot at the beautiful wedding venue Rossington Hall and worked with a lovely model, Charlotte Stacey, and fabulous hair and makeup artist, Samantha Lyann, on some lifestyle and lingerie shots for Charlotte's portfolio update. While we were there we also shot some bridal style boudoir images and now I want to see some of our fabulous upcoming brides get in on the action too! We will be starting to offer bridal boudoir shoots to all of our wonderful couples, but you don't have to be getting married to do this either, you could book one just to have a little bit of pamper time! This can be shot in the comfort of your own home, or we can talk about a lovely location that suits you...be it a gorgeous hotel like Rossington Hall or maybe even your own venue!
To celebrate this new addition to our photography we will be running a competition to win a free at home boudoir session to celebrate your upcoming wedding day....so keep an eye out for that! You don't need to have already booked us for your wedding, you just need to be up for a good giggle and a bit of pampering!
For now...here are some of the bridal style shots from our day at Rossington Hall!
