Beccy came to The Wreck My Dress Experience team wanting to do something different and exciting with her wedding dress…in working with Beccy, we came up with the idea of doing the ultimate dress wreck – what happened next could only be described as a dream becoming reality.
Nicknamed ‘Dress Stratos’, the Wreck My Dress Experience encapsulated romance, adventure and the truly unique as we sent a dress to space…quite literally! In snow, blizzards and sub-freezing temperatures, the Wreck My Dress Experience team travelled to a secluded spot in the Lake District where we, with a specialist high-altitude balloonist, captured Beccy’s dream of sending her dress soaring high above the clouds! The dress, complete with balloon and camera, raced through the clouds to the impressive height of 24,400metres – at which point the race was on!
As the balloon popped and began its fall back to earth, the Wreck My Dress Experience team began the chase. We all jumped into cars and in convoy followed the satellite programme tracker…the height of the dress rapidly fell, swirling around in the sky…all the while, we were on the ground trying to keep up. And keep up we did! Locating the dress, our team and Beccy rushed to see her wedding dress.
Wading through the snow, Beccy was the first to see her dress – we knew this was a moment we had to capture! For the perfect lasting image of the day, Beccy braved the weather and with true star quality, she slipped into her wedding dress for the glamorous shot that now hangs on her and her husband’s wall.
A brilliant day for Beccy and the Wreck My Dress Experience team as a whole – a truly magical experience like no other.
Dress Stratos – Dreams are Reality!!
