The other day I had the pleasure of photographing the second part of a three part Trash the dress project.
Using the same model Chelsea Colledge we travelled up to Bristol to the Cabot Circus Shopping Centre, to get Chelsea and the dress into the ornamental fountains in Quaker Friers Square.
This was only made possible with the help and permission of the Cabot Circus managements staff in particular Phil Morrison and also the staff of Raymond Blanc Brasserie who enabled Chelsea to get changed into the wedding dress before we took the shoot, I am afraid it was the public toilets afterwards we could not get the restaurant wet understandably. As a thank you for their assistance we all that being Chelsea, Sue, the assistant on the day and myself all had our lunch at the Brasserie and as always it was superb.
As you can imagine it did attract quite a crowd, but the security were very helpful in attracting as many people to just two sides leaving the background as clear as possible without spoiling or interfering too much with the public freedom to roam.
All in all an enjoyable shoot even Chelsea said after a while it was not too cold.
