A week before her wedding, Rebecca realized she wanted the traditional bridesmaids party photoshoot – manicures, pedicures, facials and a lot of drinking and gossiping.

She said, “I came up with the idea one week before the wedding. I was looking into some ‘making of’ pictures of brides with their gang of girls, all in robes, laughing, drinking champagne and all, and I got a bit sad because I wouldn’t be able to do anything like that.”
