On Tuesday we shared Cat & Josh’s fun and fabulous wedding from brilliant wedding photographer, Guy Collier. Guy is quickly becoming part of the ‘Miss Bush Dream Team’ – a group of suppliers that work together again and again to repeatedly produce stunning results for our brides. We love them all, and so do our clients! As Cat said “I thought you recommended these people because they were your friends, but they are genius.”
Emma followed this post with a feature about a non-Miss Bush bride on Tuesday, to stress the importance of beautiful wedding photographs to document your day.
On the flip side, many photographers will agree that finding a dress that you feel beautiful, confident and comfortable in that fits you perfectly is equally important, and finding the right boutique for you is paramount! Here are some words from Guy on the subject…
“The wedding dress. Dreamt of by a million little girls. Made real by a million not-sol-little girls. Getting the right one. That’s the trick. With so many styles, choices and budgets it’s a minefield out there. Get it right and watch your husband-to-be’s eyes light up as he sees for coming down that aisle. Get it wrong and prepare yourself for a day of fidgeting, adjusting and cursing.
This is where the proper bridal boutiques come in. What do I mean by proper? Those that won’t shove you into what they have left. They won’t hear your budget and use that as a target. Instead they’ll offer an expert eye and hand. Gently suggesting, through years of seeing what works and what doesn’t, the right one for you. And then the most important bit – fitting it properly.
I’d say the fitting is the most important part. I see a lot of brides on their wedding days, and you can tell a dress that’s well-fitted from a distance. Close-up it’s even more obvious. A neatly clipped waist. Cleavage where it should be. A hint. Length just so. Straplesss where it works, and not where it doesn’t. None of us has the perfect body. But choose your boutique well and walk out with the dress that works for you.
Without fail, whenever I walk into a wedding to photograph the bridal prep and see a dress with ‘Miss Bush’ I smile. I know it’ll be The One, and I know it’ll have the perfect fit. I know I’ll spend the day photographing a bride utterly at ease with her dress, and one happier to be photographed because she knows she nailed it.
Brides. Go to a proper boutique. One like Miss Bush Bridal. You’ll thank them for it…”
