 A scorned divorcee has set her wedding dress on fire in an 'empowering' photo shoot to celebrate the end of her marriage.
Katlynn McKee, from Illinois, waded through mud and scorched her $1,500 (£1,200) dress after splitting up from her husband.
The couple were together for 10 years before going their separate ways last summer, which is when gutsy Katlynn enlisted the help of her original wedding snapper to photograph the final chapter.
The 25-year-old said the divorce photo shoot set her 'free' after four tough years of marriage.

The mother-of-one, pictured here on her wedding day four years ago, says her relationship 'wasn't a good one'

She said: 'My relationship wasn't a good one, so it was a relief to finally be free. 'We'd been together since I was 16 and married for four years. 'We grew apart.' Katlynn, who has a six year old daughter called Faith, researched Trash The Dress for inspiration, before hatching a plan to burn her gown while downing a bottle of wine.

She said: 'I did a bit of research but all the ideas were my own and it was exactly the way I wanted to do it. 'It was like my rebellion against the marriage, my way of saying I'm free. 'We went out to this little area with mud and water and I had a bottle of wine and a gas canister in a basket.

'I got into the water in my dress so it was really dirty, then started ripping it up.
'I cracked open the wine, took it off and then set it on fire.
'I watched it burn while I drank the wine.'
Katlynn, who works as a hairdresser, said she was 'empowered' by the shoot which helped her to rebuild her confidence.
The mum-of-one said: 'It was very liberating, exciting and empowering.

'It actually ended up being quite sexy because I stripped down to my underwear.'

Katlynn even told her ex - who she hasn't named - that she was planning on doing it, and he volunteered to be in it.

She said: 'He was surprised that I was going to do it because I'm not really like that.

'He joked that he should be in it and I could punch him or something, but I wanted it to be just me.

Katlynn, pictured on her wedding day, says her ex-husband even offered to be a part of the shoot - but she declined.

She now has a new boyfriend who isn't intimidated by the pics, saying they are 'cool'

In the world there are tens of thousands of divorces every day, but only a small part of the girls perceive this event as a new positive page in their life. And Kathleen Mackey is one of not many. Which showed its example that even after the divorce life continues and it is beautiful.
