Irish Coastal Adventure…Trash the Dress
by Black Box Photography

Happy Friday everyone, and for anyone lucky enough to be in Ireland for St Patricks day, happy three day weekend! I’m excited to share Style Serendipity’s first ‘Trash the Dress’ session today, from the ever amazing Black Box Photography! For those of you who haven’t come across the concept before, this kind of a session allows a couple to get creative with photos after the big day, without the worry of getting the dress ruined!

Ali and Gareth are clearly adventurous folk and decided on a coasteering session, traversing cliffs and rocks along the northern Irish coastline and finishing up at a local sandy beach. I think you’ll agree their bravery was well worth it! Coastal views are one of my favourite things about the Irish scenery, so it’s fantastic to see couples taking advantage of such beauty.

Louise and Louie (husband and wife team extraordinaire, of Black Box Photography) really do go to any lengths to get the perfect shot! They weren’t afraid to scale cliffs and clamber over rocks, even if it resulted in a few bruises and soaked clothes!

Such a stunning set of photos, that I’m sure Ali and Gareth with treasure for many years to come. Often the pressure of a time schedule at weddings, means couples don’t get to spend as long with a photographer as they would like. Trash the Dress (also known as Rock the Frock, or Cherish the Dress) sessions could be the ideal solution! So, even if it’s many years after your wedding, why not dig your wedding dress out of the wardrobe and consider a photoshoot in a favourite location. You might be just be left with amazing photos like this!

Huge thanks to Louise and Louie from Black Box Photography for being brave enough to embrace the freezing elements, and for sharing the whole experience with us! Be sure to explore more of their creative flair in their blog!

Happy St Patrick’s day everyone, have a great weekend wherever you are!
