What a fun, colourful, sunny shoot we have for you today! Over to Chantale from Goble Photography to tell you all about it…
“This shoot was a little different as it featured two real-life, same-sex couples and was put together for the purpose of celebrating some of the different options available for same-sex couples. We really wanted to create something that had a positive message, as well as showcasing the work of some amazing local wedding suppliers.
As someone who works in the wedding industry, I’ve seen too many same-sex weddings that have gone for what they thought was traditionally right, rather than what represented them as a couple. For example I’ve seen lots of brides that would shudder at the thought of wearing a dress in day-to-day life. However, it seems they force themselves into a dress on their special day because that’s what’s expected of them.
I want to make sure people know that you don’t have to stick to traditional norms and gender stereotypes to look, and more importantly, feel amazing on your wedding day. I want to show off how amazingly beautiful a girl can look in a suit… and absolutely rock it! I want to show that you can have a rainbow-themed wedding that looks stylish, classy and unique.
I want to scream about all these wonderful choices that we have and to inspire all of those people who, like me, never dreamt of having the opportunity to marry someone.
