Trashing the wedding dress dispite its name sake, is not always about trashing a dress and then binning it afterwards.
In fact the dress we used came up clean after the Trash the Dress photo shoot we did. OK, so it took two washes, but it still came up clean.
I was reading the posts on the Times on line about Trash the Dress photo shoots. and it would seem from some of the posts that women think that its a waste.
I though this was funny
I plan to trash my dress in 2 weeks time. I could spend £100 on getting the dress dry cleaned and then shove it in a box…but I’d much rather spend the money getting some fun pics. And as long as theres enough ‘decent’ material left to make a garter and ring cushion for my daughter I am happy! x
its a bit of good fun to some but not to others.
I think all those who encourage this sort of thing are just hooligans at heart. And those who participate in it are little better. To my mind, it is vandalism tantamount to sacrilege. What a sad relection on what society has become!
Think of your gown as it was…then see it as it is after the fun

Well you cant always please everyone. But saying that…
If people book a trash the dress shoot with us, then they can borrow a dress from us speciffically for this type of shoot. We have a few and we will be getting some more in as people book up for the shoots. I think one of the key points as to the dress getting trashed, is mainly down to the material that its made from, as we know some materials stain more than others. With wedding dresses less than £150 you cant really go wrong.. Who said you had to trash your own dress???
AND Importantly, we do a Rock the frock shoot, which is like trashing the dress but with less emphsis on destruction like some of the shoots I have seen.
So its a choice that we offer at the end of the day.
- Trash the dress, your own dress or a loan dress from us.
- Rock the frock, with a loan dress from us or in your own dress.
Being a wedding photographer, I have seen dresses that are almost as bad after a wedding as they are from a Trash the Dress shoot.
