Ready, set, wed!

We asked Kent-based wedding photographer Lee Gordon ( whether bridal prep shots are a must-have. Read on to find out what she had to say.

I usually start the wedding morning by capturing all of the lovely details such as the dresses, shoes, flowers and jewellery –  all the bits and pieces my brides might have lost sleep over! But more importantly, these images showcase a love shared. Whether its a mum, sister or bestie, those present for this inner circle are the people the bride loves most in the world... barring the one she's about to marry of course!

As well as the bride tribe we usually have the hair and make-up specialists in the room too. All the bride needs to do is relax and enjoy the pampering, so champagne corks are often flying, while love and laughter is on tap. It really is the best girly sleepover, without the sleep. Add to that the emotional scene of revealing the wedding dress to dad and it's the stuff movies are made of. For when the doors finally open, that means the bride and her party are ready, and the day can begin. It's so very exciting.
