What is Bridal Prep?

I was recently told by a bride that had booked me for wedding photography that “I don’t want Bridal Prep, I wouldn’t like any photos in my underwear”!

When I stopped laughing, I told her that Bridal Prep involved the following;

Make up, Hair, Jewellery applied in dressing gowns.

Dresses hanging, shoes, bag, bouquets etc

Then after retiring to another room to get dressed and returning, the interaction with bridesmaids, mum, aunties, cousins, flower girls etc, all helping to make look great and feel comfortable, which all make memorable photos of an important part of the day.

Here is a great example of Shirley getting ready, assisted by her two daughters, mother and various others.
