Held at Owen House Wedding Barn in Mobberly, Cheshire on Saturday 15th June, Rebecca Barron and Jason Lowry’s big day was one to remember.
From the couple’s dog, Wilf, arriving for the pictures to their baby boy, Jesse, enjoying the day, the wedding was packed with highlights from start to finish – each captured with perfect timing by photographer, Lee Brown.
One such special moment caught on camera was Rebecca and her bridesmaids’ recreation of the renowned film shot from 2011 film, Bridesmaids, starring Kristen Wiig.
An idea conceived by Rebecca, the image was planned several months prior to the big day. She said: “Many months before the wedding I created bridesmaids’ boxes for my girls as a way to ask them to be a part of my special day. Each bridesmaid received plenty of gifts, but the focal point was their own DVD of Bridesmaids."
"The film is fun, sassy, care-free, laid back and is all about a good time, plus it’s a barrel of laughs and we had plenty of those on my hen do. The movie shot is an iconic line-up and I just knew my girls and I would do it justice.”
Commenting on how he scored the money shot, Lee Brown said: “"I knew that Rebecca really wanted to recreate the cover photograph from the film Bridesmaids, a film I secretly love too. We waited until later into the night where I could use a bit of creative lighting to add some drama to the image.”
“The funniest bit was each bridesmaid deciding on which character they would like to mimic in the shot," Lee continued. “I showed them the poster, asked them to give me some attitude and they did the rest. I think they nailed it."
An everlasting reminder of their friendship, the shot features Jessica Barron (Rebecca’s sister and maid of honour) and best friends Sarah Marchant, Tilly Mesuira, Rachel Kelly and Amy Wild. Just like the movie poster, the bridesmaids wore pretty pink dresses which were from TFNC at ASOS and perfectly complemented Rebecca’s sleek gown from the Enchanting collection by Mon Cheri.
This style of posed shot is a creative way to add character to the bridal party group photograph and has proved popular at a number of other weddings around the world. Here are just a few other brides and bridesmaids who have done the same thing:
