Love you. Love your dress

HayleySidFINAL 32

H AVE you ever looked at your wedding dress or a special dress and wished that you could wear it again?


And not only wear it again but be photographed in it again, looking and feeling like a million dollars?

Sometimes in life things (as we all know) don’t turn out quite as we may have hoped which is exactly what happened to Hayley Siddall on her wedding day.

The big day – which should have been all taken care of for her by wedding professionals – ended up being somewhat of a challenge for the bride, leaving Hayley stressed and disappointed.

Her photographer had to pull out at the last minute due to serious health issues and then her wedding co-ordinator didn’t do what she was supposed to do.

All of which meant that Hayley had to spent the majority of her wedding morning sorting things out at the last minute, which left her very little time to get ready herself.

Hayley sadly didn’t have the opportunity to be pampered on her big day nor did she feel that her wedding dress was captured beautifully, so you can imagine her delight when a local photographer asked her to take part in a new kind of shoot.

Helen from Masque Photography – a good friend of mine and a seriously talented photographer – invited Hayley to be one of her guinea pigs, for her new ‘Love You, Love Your Dress shoot‘.

A shoot which allows women to wear their favourite dress again and have it captured in super fashion – inspired shots.

Here’s Hayley doing exactly that, in her beautiful wedding dress and just look at the stunning results…

You often hear designers and famous fashion folk talking about how important it is to wear a dress and not allow it to wear you and I think this next photo sums that up perfectly.

Because just look how happy Hayley looks!

Confident and happy, feelings which totally shine through these images.

Isn’t it incredible how an amazing dress and some pampering can make us feel so radiant and alive?!

  • Hello,
    I love dresses and photography (am a kids photographer),but when I’m working I can’t wear a dress as no one wants to see that especially not the kids! Totally off the subject here! Great idea! I also read the previous post about the unwedding wedding dress… I am a traditional wedding dress woman, I was lucky enough to wear the same dress twice, once for the wedding and the second time when we renewed our vows 10 years later, so it turned out to be the perfect dress and hopefully fingers cross, my daughter will wear it for her big day (if she wants to). Just wanted to share my little story :-)
