THE BIG I DO REDO is the brain child of wedding photographer Julia Boggio, the notorious ‘Dirty Dancing Bride’ behind THAT YouTube video of her wedding dance, which went on to take the world by storm receiving over 5 million hits and counting. Since then Julia has appeared on television shows across the world, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, where Julia danced with none other than Patrick Swayze himself! I can’t tell you how jealous I am of that fact… dancing with Patrick Swayze used to be one of my biggest aspirations when I was a teenager. I saw Dirty Dancing in the cinema nearly 20 times and my bedroom walls were plastered with posters of him!
When Patrick was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Julia decided to organise a nationwide charity fundraising event that celebrated love. As one of the UK’s top wedding photographers, Julia is always hearing her brides say that they’d love to wear their gowns again. Thus THE BIG I DO REDO was born!
Julia says, ‘I hope that this event will capture the imaginations of people across Britain. The day is about celebrating love in all its forms. Please do get involved.’
I am donating an engagement shoot for the auction. I say ‘engagement’ shoot, but obviously it’s not really that literal. Just as long as you’re a couple, and in love, I would love to capture some beautiful pictures of you together whether you’re newly engaged or already married. Please visit and place your bid here:
