Reportage Wedding Photography in Leeds / At Abigails Bridal
Friday night in Leeds city centre. You’re about to see examples of reportage wedding photography in Leeds – instead of a wedding, I’m photographing in a very fine bridal boutique located behind the city library. It was exciting to accept the invitation to photograph the now famous wedding shop, Abigail’s Bridal in Leeds on Great George Street holding its Maggie Sottero catwalk show. That’s female wedding photographers for you – they can’t resist the chance to photograph a wedding dress, and shoes and sparkly, flowery wedding accessories! Plenty of future brides came to see a gorgeous and very wearable selection of wedding dresses especially brought in by wedding shop owners Marg & Abbi for the weekend. Keen brides who started queuing up outside from 5.30 for a 6pm start, were warmly welcomed in by Marg to an array of retro sweeties, bubbles of champagne and of course lots of twinkling wedding accessories and beautiful wedding gowns. How does a bride choose THE ONE from all that gorgeousness? At least three brides managed to find it, try it and buy it after the catwalk show! I was the lucky female wedding photographer invited to photograph the event in a documentary photographic style. Enjoy . . .
Abbi was full of information about which styles of dresses would suit different body shapes and sizes. She also gave plenty of information on how a bride could customise her dress.
Someone bought this 2 layer wedding dress on the night! It’s a Maggie Sottero lace wedding dress with a rose gold colour slip dress underneath and a satin gold sash. Very feminine and elegant and suitable for all types of weddings.
It was a great show with plenty of creative ideas for brides to think about. Then there was more. A raffle for Cancer Research with great prizes like money off a bridesmaid dress and an engagement photo-shoot.
And then there was a LOT of shopping (no wonder!) with the staff at Abigail’s booking appointments for fittings all weekend – yes, including Sunday from 10am.
Come along to the next wedding catwalk show. The girls are currently in sunny Barcelona buying the next Pronovias collection!
In case you missed this twinkly bridal boutique in Leeds, it’s on Great George Street near the LGI. It’s one of Leeds’ biggest and finest wedding shops.
