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!

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
