Fay & Jason – Shoot The Dress Session

Fay & Jason were married at Rowton Castle in February. Unfortunately I didn’t get to shoot their wedding but I so wish I had! They booked the photographer recommended by the venue and were a little disappointed with the results. Fay emailed me asking about a “Trash The Dress” session, stressing that she “doesn’t want to actually ‘trash’ the dress”. And to be honest, neither would we.

So we met up one Tuesday morning in May and spent the day on a mini adventure in search of cool locations, only stopping for a nice pub lunch out in the countryside. This is why I LOVE my job and Fay & Jason rocked the shoot. Unlike the wedding day there were no restrictions on time, location, etc. They didn’t have to worry if their guests were ok and if the dress got a little dirty, so what?! Just clean it later.

I wish every bride would do this after her wedding day. We had so much fun!

So here are just a selection of images from our “Shoot The Dress” session with Fay & Jason.


This shoot was absolutely one of my favourites ever and that’s mainly down to Fay & Jason being so cool, fun, adventurous and great company. Thanks so much for asking me to do the session. Now, which one will look best on your wall…?

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE These!!! I especially love the kissing in the field with the sun spot shining through and the wind playing with her hair and his suit! I also love the one where he’s jumping and she’s sassing it up on the side. Very nice.

    We love them all and can’t wait to see the full set! You were amazing Steve and we would highly recommend you to anyone…such a pity we can’t do the wedding day all over again with you!

    Fantastic! love the pics – you must have had soooo much fun – and what a result!

    What a truly gorgeous set of images! Love them all, and how much more relaxed must the bride and groom feel having just them on the shoot at their own pace instead of being rushed around between service and speeches? I want to turn the clock back 13 years and have mine done all over again!
