An Avant Garde, Rodarte Inspired Wedding Veil Editorial

Posted by Helena on July 26, 2018

I never, ever thought I’d wear a veil but ended up faffing about with a pillowcase in front of a mirror (true story) and knew I needed to try one.

The thing is, once you’ve tried one, you’ll never lookback. Even the most staunch of feminists I know who would never have dreamt of wearing a veil have ended up floating down the aisle in the most exquisite of tulle creations.

I ended up wearing a gorgeous cathedral length veil and bloody loved the experience. I’d encourage all brides finding their wedding day attire to consider a veil now. If you haven’t tried one yet, you must. This feature is one is for our modern, more fashion forward brides who want to make a statement. Words are from Jess of W Collective, who supply the most gorgeous veil designs for modern brides. Enjoy.

“As a recent newlywed and a woman within the wedding industry, there are not many venues I haven’t heard of. So when I started hearing rumbles of a cool new venue, I was intrigued.”

“I must admit I’d been not so secretly stalking The Giraffe Shed for a while on Instagram before a message popped up in my DM’s from the lovely Hannah of Rocksalt Photography, who asked if I’d like to collaborate with her on a photoshoot at her brand new alternative wedding venue.”

“Hannah and her husband Neil built this venue from scratch on their farm and have labeled it ‘a heptagonal palace of joy and confetti and dancing’, which sums it up perfectly.”

“There’s a really special feeling about this venue, from seeing this magnificent building in its rural setting as you drive up, to the stunning interior with light flooding in through the huge windows, and gorgeous views from every angle.”

“Just over an hour’s scenic drive from my home in Shropshire, this Welsh wedding venue is certainly the black sheep of the fluffy industry we’ve become accustomed to, dubbed ‘the alternative wedding venue that Nanna won’t approve of’.”

“Hannah and I put our heads together and came up with an ethereal, dream like concept with a neutral palette of shimmering tones and hints of pink. You could tell we were both feeling uber inspired, with messages flying back and forth at light speed.”

“I’d been dreaming about the Rodarte Spring 2019 show I’d seen and used it as a muse to inspire a frothy pink tulle headband that I made, which really set the tone for the whole shoot. I’d always wanted to do a photoshoot with a roll top bath, and voila! Hannah just happened to have a spare pink bathtub, so it was all very serendipitous.”

“Hannah really let me take the reigns with styling this shoot, with a focus on bridal accessories. I took a range of my veils, particularly styles with embellishment, texture and hints of soft pink. I created a range of statement tulle headpieces for a more fun, Avant Garde bridal look.”

“I also took my much loved polka dot tulle bridal cape, which looks ideal teamed with a simple slip dress. The vibe for this shoot was a laid back yet fashion forward bride, so the dresses were kept minimal and timeless to let the accessories really shine.”

“On the day I took with me a gorgeous selection of flowers curated by Will at Blooms of Bridgnorth, whilst Hannah Carson provided the dreamy, glowing makeup and hair stylist Katie Burton turned out some effortlessly bohemian hair, adorned with real flowers, no less.”

“We dressed the venue with draped tulle, a pink bath and a beautiful bracken moon provided by Pheasant Botanica. We also utilised The Giraffe Shed’s super cool millennial pink wall – proving this venue is ace for fun photo opportunities.”

“The Giraffe Shed are holding their first wedding later this year and I literally cannot wait to see how their super cool couples style this blank canvas venue for their big day – it’s definitely one to watch!”
