Trash The Dress photo shoots, where brides purposely ruin their wedding gowns in the name of art, is a decade-long trend that can involve anything from colorful paint bombs, to buckets of mud and in some case, balls of fire.
Now, one woman has filmed her shoot, capturing the ‘crazy’ moment her pristine white dress is lit on fire before she bolts towards the ocean in a hurried attempt to put the flames out.
Natasha Samuel, who married Daniel Yakcobi in May, was standing on a beach in Israel earlier this month when she had a friend douse her wedding gown in flammable liquid, before lighting a match.
And it seems that grooms are happy to participate in the trend.
‘Brides and grooms want awesome imagery from their wedding, period,’ writes the Wedding Journalist Association.
‘Couples everywhere are donning their wedding finery and not only descending into caves, but plunging into breakers, walking through abandoned amusement parks, wandering through cornfields, wading into forest streams and chasing other wild pursuits in an increasingly popular and edgy extension of wedding photojournalism.’
