Bridal Wishes recently contacted me alongside Rebecca Williams, Wedding Designer & RL Hair Studio about doing a Bridal portrait session with multiple models and wedding dress changes. They were looking for a local Carlisle wedding photographer to help out and I was more than willing to do so. They had a simple idea. To show off not only the new wedding dresses on offer, but also to show off headpieces and hairstyles. While talking about the shoot we also decided to do two “Trash the dress” Shoots as well… They may have gathered a small crowd.
Off to Talkin Tarn we went! The Tarn is a kettle-hole lake formed by the immense force of glaciers 18,000 years ago. Moving ice scoured and carved the landscape leaving glacial sand hills and a natural bowl, which filled with water as the ice sheet melted. It has a long and rich history and has traditionally been used for recreation since at least the middle of the 1800’s.
With a small lake, hills, woodland and marshland we were spoiled for choice on ideas. Have a browse through the images below to see what we did with what the tarn has to offer.
If you would like to do a bridal portrait then please feel free to get in touch with me. You can see other bridal portraits in my blog too 🙂
Rachel – She stunned us with her beautiful classic styled precious wedding Dress by Eglantine Creations (OMG It has pockets!) and then wowed us by her “Trash the Dress” of a Verise Bridal margo dress.
Amy – She blew us away with her Seraphine wedding dress, quickly followed by her absolute “Trash the dress” of a Verise Bridal Diora wedding dress. We got quite the crowd but that didn’t stop Amy!
Kelly – A few on lookers simply couldn’t take their eyes off kelly and her stunning Clio wedding Dress.
Kelsey – Her paloma wedding dress and hair were the perfect combination.
