She says it was very cathartic to do, and I felt very strong after that. “The whole day was so much fun, we went to a farm to do it. We took pictures of me wearing the dress and then I took it off so I could take a few pictures of it in the dirt and stuff,” she says .
“After that I ripped off some of the liner and diapers which was really fun. Then at the end he went into that barrel and I set it on fire. We took loads of pictures of that, and they turned out fine.”

Nicola found the inspiration and opportunity to do the shoot on social media. “A photographer posted on Facebook the story of another woman who had one and asked if anyone was interested. All my friends were tagging me because I had just separated from my husband, saying I had to go, so I did,” says the happy singleton.
“I’ve never done a photo shoot in my life, so I didn’t know what to do. I told Jenine, my photographer, that she would need to tell me how to pose and stuff because I didn’t know what to do .”
Nicola says her marriage failed despite everything she did to try to save it.
