What is Wedding or Bridal Boudoir?
A bridal boudoir shoot is the most perfect wedding gift for your groom because you can truly give yourself to your soulmate in the most beautiful and unique way. I have seen the incredible confidence transformation that it can give to brides to be and Valentine Weddings discuss bridal boudoir photography as part of a blog post on Seven Ways to Boost Confidence for Brides.
I have recently decorated a room with wedding boudoir in mind – the cream room is all White Company vibes – stylish and luxurious – it’s all about perfect simplicity. I wanted to create a beautifully feminine and pretty space to shoot boudoir sessions. Have a look at the ‘light and airy boudoir‘ gallery for inspiration on boudoir styling. Or read this blog post which shows all of the different room set ups and styling options for bridal boudoir photography. I have also written this blog about ‘what to bring to a boudoir photo shoot‘

Why is a bridal boudoir session an amazing investment?
A wedding boudoir photography shoot is an amazing experience but here are a few reasons why you should consider investing in bridal boudoir photos:
You can surprise your groom with a boudoir album or stunning slideshow the night before the wedding – giving him a preview of your wedding lingerie (because we all know that you might not actually be wearing it on the day!). It will also be the greatest wedding gift you can give yourself because in addition to beautiful images you will also have an enormous confidence boost – I can’t emphasise this point enough.
You are probably looking pretty fabulous after months of hardwork and pampering for the big day and if you plan on having a family then it is the perfect time to create some beautiful memories and celebrate this milestone time in your life.
You can use your bridal boudoir shoot to showcase your wedding lingerie and also feature those amazing shoes you spent hours searching for.
Bridal boudoir outfits often include stunning wedding robes, veils and even your wedding dress if you wish.
If you are at all nervous about being photographed on your wedding day then a wedding boudoir photography shoot is the ideal way to get over feeling camera shy. If you think that boudoir photography is about getting undressed then you are not seeing it correctly – it is much more about getting dressed – in exquisite lingerie that you might not normally wear.
- Imagine how much fun it would be to have a lingerie bridal shower and perhaps ask your closest girlfriends to contribute to a boudoir gift voucher as their wedding present to you?
