Bridal / Boudoir Photography

Are you wondering what Feminine Elegant Bridal/Boudoir photography is all about? Let me tempt you!

It’s all about that private moment for yourself. If you’re looking for a special gift for your partner to be, maybe for a wedding present, or it could be a lovely treat for yourself, a bridal boudoir experience is just perfect.

I will take time to get to know you a little, allaying any worries or concerns you may have. Prior to your shoot we can meet to discuss outfits, hair & make-up and accessories like shoes and jewellery, basically a good ole’ girlie chat!  I want you to feel amazing and relaxed and be able to show your individuality in a sensitive and feminine way.

During your shoot your hair and make-up will be creatively designed by an experienced sought after professional stylist. You may want soft flowing curls to compliment your natural complexion or dramatic hair with accentuated eye lashes and shocking bright red lipstick; all quite simply beautiful and elegant. As for location, your Bridal Boudoir photography shoot can take place either in your own home or we can find a venue for together, which may be an extra cost depending where it is.  I travel all over Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and the surrounding Cotswolds so there are lots of choice.

If you are curious but still a little hesitant, don’t be shy, just get in touch. I’d love to talk you through the experience.  I’ve been told by my clients its fun and relaxing and a major confidence boost.  I’ve also heard it’s like having a fabulous dress up day.

You will feel amazing, I promise you x

Lovely words from clients...

My daughter mentioned she was having a boudoir shoot for a gift for her husband to be. I thought it would be nice to have one for my husband too to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. It was really nice to have our hair and make-up done in a professional way – it just added to the fun. Sally makes you feel really comfortable and is really good to work with – she listened to us and asked the right questions about what we wanted. She produced some beautiful photos – it was really hard to choose from the selection. I chose a folio of 5 photos and a metallic style picture for our bedroom wall. My husband was very surprised – in a good way and loves the pictures. Thank you Sally for helping to mark our 30 years of marriage in such a lovely and I think quite unique way x

I wanted an extra special gift for my husband on our wedding day and chose a bridal boudoir photo shoot! We did the shoot in Sally’s (AMAZING) home after a morning of hair and makeup. Sally was fantastic from the pre meet – really understanding what I wanted, to making me feel so comfortable and relaxed during the shoot. The pictures are amazing and it’s safe to say my hubby ADORES them! Thank you so much Sally!! Xxx

After feeling a bit flat for sometime with the winter blues, I wasn’t sure whether a boudoir shoot would be what I needed to help me to regain my confidence. At the start of our day together, the last thing I felt like doing was flaunting my body. With a busy schedule and winter upon us, it had been easy for me to hide the ever growing waistline under layers of clothing, turning a blind eye to the fact that half my jeans didn’t fit me anymore, as well as ensuring I still had shape to the hamster like roundness of my cheeks through the make-up wonder of contouring. However, the thought of baring all was a scary one and it was difficult to know how I would feel. But that’s exactly it, I felt great! We all fall victim to over critiquing ourselves, as well as over indulging on cheese, wine and chocolates, snuggling up in front of the telly of a dark, chilly evening. But that simply doesn’t matter for a boudoir shoot because with Sally-Anne’s expertise, I felt back to my old self in no time at all; relaxed, beautiful & vivacious. Creative, sassy and energised! If you want to feel relaxed, have fun and go away with some beautiful photographs of yourself to look back on in years to come, then this is the shoot for you. It’s time to embrace your body just the way it is, & see yourself in a whole new light.

Sally-Anne I can’t thank you enough for today! I felt so beautiful! You have made me see myself in a whole new light.  I don’t even have worlds to describe how i feel about my photos! They are just amazing! You are simply brilliant.  Thank you so much x

Michelle - Swindon, Wiltshire

“Only the second experience in my life of having pictures taken and it was lovely!  Sally made it such a pleasant experience.

Sally e-mailed initially and explained exactly what she had organised and asked if I would like to choose from my wardrobe what to wear, then visited me and we went through everything together.  We spent one day shooting in a studio and the following day in a wonderful old house, you know, the four poster bed type.

A couple of weeks later Sally showed me all the photos, which were fantastic! Deciding on which I liked the best was very difficult but Sally has a great method and we decided on 4 or 5 for a frame.  The day arrived and my framed picture was here – I cried! It now hangs proudly in my hallway for everyone to see.

The whole experience was exciting, relaxing and great fun, she made me feel a million dollars!   As I go through life (53 now!) I think it’s important to celebrate age – and this definitely did the job. I now have beautiful pictures to treasure – Thank you so much Sally ♥”

Hi Sally – I just want to say a huge thank you for making me feel so comfortable on my boudoir shoot, you were so lovely and professional and I’ve just had a look and I absolutely love the photos. I was a tad nervous but you made me feel like a queen.   Thanks again –  Jess xx

I find myself smiling or should I say ‘grinning like a Cheshire Cat’ when I think back on the afternoon I had with ‘Photography by Sally-Anne’ which is odd as I really dislike having my photo taken!! During the photo session I was made to feel very comfortable in my own skin and was relaxed and laughing most of the way through. It was a very enjoyable experience. Professional yet personal from the start when making my appointment to the end, when I received my photos. The quality of the frames and pictures is amazing and look fabulous in my home. I plan on booking another session with my family and highly recommend using ‘Photography by Sally-Anne’.

I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank You’ for the fabulous pictures that you delivered to me last week…they are beyond beautiful!  The whole experience of my boudoir shoot was brilliant, the hair, make-up, venue and you making it such a fun relaxed experience made it something I will always remember.
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to feel truly feminine and needs a confidence boost at any time in their lives!  I am giving your card to everyone!!I also wanted to say a big thank you for the extra prints and the gorgeous USB heart!! Omg everyone swooned over that!!  The picture is hanging in my bedroom and can’t wait for my new guy to come over and see it!!  Thanks so much you are just brilliant!!   Big Love, Kay xxx
