May the 4th might have been known as Star Wars Day, but this year it was extra special as our good friends at The Giraffe Shed held their official launch of their new, alternative wedding venue in Wales. Back in October I had the chance to work with owner Hannah of Rocksalt Photography and style not one but two gloriously creative shoots there featuring our veils. As a maker of veils I'm often the support act for a shoot, whereas usually the dress takes the focus, so I was thrilled to have the chance to make it ALL ABOUT MEEEEE muahahaha for once. We assembled a team, Avengers style, of dope creatives who helped my vision come to life. Katie from Hair at Hurst Barn and Hannah Carson MUA provided the glam, although our models Rosie and Chelsea didn't need much help to make them look any more fabulous than they already are!
This look was the second of our day long shoot, and we went for a super cool disco meets glam rock theme with iridescent jewel tones featuring heavily - with lots of glitter and sequins, of course. It was the complete opposite and a fun contrast to the bohemian and ethereal shoot we did in the morning, which you can see on out blog here.
If you're looking for a wedding venue that is full of character yet provides a blank canvas to make your own, then The Giraffe Shed is made for you. Hannah & her husband Neil have built this from scratch and thought meticulously over every little detail to ensure it is the hottest new venue around.
