Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside – My Rock the Dress Shoot with Mandy Charlton Photography

February 28th, 2011 | Julia Braime

Last Tuesday I spent the afternoon at Bamburgh in Northumberland with Brides Up North Featured Supplier and wonderful photographer Mandy Charlton Photography, rocking my wedding dress and creating some beautiful art to feature in her forthcoming “Dressing Up” photography exhibition.

After a fun drive up the coast and a quick change in the castle car park (the things I do in the name of blogging!) we headed over the dunes and down to the beach…

After an intense posing session interspersed with telling curious dog walkers all about Brides Up North and Mandy’s exhibition it was out of my fab frock (how I have missed you!) and back into the car down to Newcastle, stopping for a diet coke break on the way.  An afternoon well spent!
