hey! another UK bride!! wahhoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ah wow, I wanted to do FYEO - it was one of their adverts that got me thinking about it to start with, but it was just too expensive for me. I shopped around - for AGES - and found this photog, Amy Symons. She has a studio in London and one in Folkstone and her packages were much more suitable for my budget. I have been having loads of emails with her and she's been the person who's made me feel most comfortable about doing it and most importantly, without even talking to her I feel comfortable already :)

so yours is about 2 weeks after mine!! mine is 2 weeks from today!!!! I've been working out for about 6 weeks now and more seriously in the past 2 weeks but I haven't lost any weight. I have changed shape and loads of people have said I've lost weight but the scales don't agree. But that's fine, as long as I look better, I don't care what the scales actually say.

I've got:

- white corset, stockings, garter etc for my bridal shots
- England football top with 'Mrs Day' on the back and a mini football (probably will wear with just french knickers and maybe stockings)
- i'm taking my FI's favourite LBD (I don't wear it out as it's soooo figure hugging I wouldn't have the guts, so thought this could be an ideal opportunity!)
- I need to get one of his shirts
- got a white feather boa (just cheap from Claire's Accessories) which looks fab (definitely check it out for your jewellary props)

I still need to get a corset and knicker set (black) for the more sexy/sultry poses and I'm not having much luck with that one - I need a set as I'm hopeless at matching things myself.

my white corset was from ebay and yes it's cheap, but I still think it will look good in the pics and then I'll probably throw it away anyway!

Good luck for your new job too!

These are the packages she offers for Folkstone shoots (which is where I'm going to - the cost is cheaper than the cost of travel there, and as they say, 'every little helps'!)

Deluxe London Boudoir Shoot with Prints-
*A two hour shoot against different sets and backdrops in an unlimited number of outfits
* A set of eight 9x6, fully retouched prints, chosen from your personal, secure online gallery
£220

Deluxe London Boudoir Shoot with Album -
*A two hour shoot against different sets and backdrops in an unlimited number of outfits
*A beautiful professional album in black containing your choice of twelve fully retouched images in 7x5 size, framed within black overlays
£370

Deluxe London Boudoir Shoot with Large Album -
*A two hour shoot against different sets and backdrops in an unlimited number of outfits
*A beautiful professional album in black containing your choice of twenty-four fully retouched images in 10x8 size, framed within black overlays
£520

For an extra treat why not add....
* Make-up and Hairstyling Session before your shoot, with a professional make-up artist
£60

* Extra, fully retouched, 9x6 prints - £12*each (Other sizes available)

* A CD of all the images in your gallery (50-100) + chosen retouched images -£100

I live in Orpington in Kent so will just drive to Folkstone to have the shoot. I will probably go with the lowest priced package (they all include retouching) and then add some photos to that, and then put them in an album myself. I'll pay to have my make up done too as this is something nearly every b2b has advised as the pics come out tons better.

Well if you're bored on the 24th, pop along!!

Your job change sounds life-changing, a brave but very inspiring thing to do...GOOD LUCK! Let me know how your first day goes!

xx

GOOD LUCK for your last day!!!! and good luck for your outfit shopping tomorrow! you'll have loads of fun looking for things.

Try to get an idea of what outfits/poses you want to do before you go so you can take a shopping list of everything you need to get to pull off all the different outfits...I found it MUCH easier!

Let me know how you get on :) flypig.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
