I have come across a few blogs that feature photo shoots of couples in their wedding attire some time later, a year, three or ten.
First of all, looking at these I can't help but think women really do age beautifully, and come into themselves more at 30 or so than they do as blushing brides in their early twenties. Okay, okay, I know lots of women wait to marry until thirty, but I married at twenty and I'm coming up on thirty, so a little bias is allowed.
Secondly, I wasn't thrilled with my wedding pictures. What a chance to try again to get more of what you want?
Thirdly, though I don't think I can reproduce the genuine unending smile I wore on my wedding day, I would relish the chance to take our time and do an extended photo shoot without worrying how long the guests have been waiting.
And lastly, don't you love these backdrops?! I think they are amazing, and IF IF IF I can talk my husband into this, I want to do it somewhere totally un-weddingy. No gardens. No churches. I love the old machinery look, or a big city. Do you trash the dress?'
