When you slip into your wedding day gown we want you feeling fierce, comfy as heck and most importantly, like yourself. There is no point in rocking up to your first bridal boutique appointment and trying on the gowns you THINK you are meant to wear. We want you in gowns that spark your spirit and get you pumped. We are blessed with such a vast offering when it comes to bridal attire these days that boring simply no longer cuts it.
For this shoot, that first featured in Issue 26 of Hello May magazine, we were channelling cool, calm and contemporary bridal. Gowns with no fuss, but by no means dreary. These gowns are bold, sleek and cool-girl approved.
Whatever you are channelling, we have you covered with these 13 looks. There is sleek and simple from Prea James Bridal and Goddess By Nature and edgy gowns from Raggatt and Georgia Young Couture. Daisy Brides have delivered in the form of a cruisey two-piece and Amy New Bridal promises you will have space for burgers in your belly with her 1970s inspired Lumina Gown.
Best of all, we are delivering bridal bob inspo alongside killer peachy makeup references, thanks to the lovely Kelly Bowman of The Future Mrs. Don’t forget to check out the gems we have paired with these looks from the likes of Cushla Whiting and Ilion Design.
