Brides of Harrogate / Female Wedding Photographer in Harrogate
Last night, Brides of Harrogate, a big and very beautiful bridal boutique in Harrogate, North Yorkshire held its ‘Vintage Inspired’ Designer Catwalk Bridal Show Evening. And I was the lucky female wedding photographer who was invited to photograph their whole evening of bridal brilliance!

A selection of this season’s Pronovias Wedding Gowns was taken downstairs in preparation of the Designers Wedding Showcase
Champagne at the ready – but of course! These ladies do it all in a calm relaxed style.
Here are bridal shop owner extraordinaire, Abbi Lewis and Rachel, the manager of Brides of Harrogate
Meanwhile, picture the scene downstairs . . .
Preparing the dresses in order of appearance is Jane, manager of Confetti and Lace in Stanningley, Leeds
Lauren has thought all things bridal from a very young age. She offered her CV to Abbi THREE times before she got her first chance to work in bridalwear
And here’s Abbi, the owner of Brides of Brides of Harrogate and the lady who started Award Winning Confetti & Lace near Leeds eight years ago (featured on Don’t Tell the Bride and The Wedding Shop just two weeks ago!).

Some final checks
It was like being in a room with 3 goddesses! Leanne decides on a modern day wedding up-do
It’s best foot forward, and the show begins!
Are you getting the impression that working here is rather fun?
Expert seamstress Joanne (is everyone who works here good-looking here ? ?), who can be kept busy for 16 – 17 hours in the summer months, looks on with Rachel and Martin (Abbi’s lovely hubby)
Abbi gave some very helpful advice. Here she shows how a button up shrig can completely change the look of your wedding dress. Ideal for a wedding in the cooler seasons and if you fancy being a bit modest for your church ceremony or, just if you fancy two different looks.
Brimming with excitement, the brides wanted a closer look at some of their favourite wedding dresses. There was time to buy raffle tickets to raise some money for Cancer Research. Prizes included sparkly wedding shoes, a make-over by Amber followed by a photo-shoot by me plus bridesmaids outfits!
I don’t think Amy wanted to take her Pronovias wedding dress off. And who could blame her!
One bride-to-be ordering her wedding dress with Katrina!
Time for the raffle
Here’s the winner of the make-over with Amber and photo-shoot with eyecapture wedding photography afterwards
and who won these sparkly wedding shoes in the window?
