Emily’s wedding dress

johnslaytor / 12/02/2013

Yesterday’s post was about the groom, Ayrton, ┬ápreparing himself for his wedding.

Today’s post is about the bride.

When I learnt that Charlotte, Emily’s mother, was making Emily’s wedding dress, I thought it could be very important to photograph the symbolism of Charlotte’s gift, the symbolism of the mother preparing the daughter for marriage and just as importantly, the daughter accepting the mother’s gift.

I’m slightly jumping ahead, but to give you an idea of just how beautiful the finished dress is, below is photo of Emily outside the church waiting to walk up the aisle with her father.
