So this is for the ones among us that have taken the plunge and said our vows, had an awesome party, then after 8 hours or so of wearing likely the most expensive dress we've ever bought, proceed to pack it away into a box. Yes I'm talking about the dress. Wedding dresses. Of course once it's packed away, we dutifully haul it out every few years and reminisce, sigh over how thin we were back then, laugh at the near disasters we had with the veil/train/buttons/whatever; then carefully pack it back into the box with fresh moth balls and greaseproof paper to stop it from yellowing. Ahhh, what a shame. We spent a good many hours agonizing over choosing the perfect wedding dress, only to wear it for a short while, accompanied with pictures that have your great-second-aunt who smells funny frumpily standing beside you, and the hair that you really wish you had worn differently.
So enter in Cherish the Dress - I stumbled across these gorgeous photographs that from a talented UK photographer Chris Hanley. He had the concept of re-taking your wedding photographs, wearing the dress all over again (and incidentally the better half could tag along too - of course!) and in his very words - 'liberate the dress from its wardrobe, re-kindle the passion, breath new life into wearing it again'.
What drew me to these images was, of course, the vintage theme he had created using a variety of gowns, the colours, backdrops and props. What do you think? Would you love to have your memories refreshed and given new life?
