This modern rustic barn wedding is sure to give you lots of inspiration for your big day, with alternative bridal styling it ticks all the boxes when it comes to having an uber cool modern wedding vibe. We were thrilled to supply both bespoke dresses for the shoot - both made from separates, they're a great alternative and can mixed and matched with other pieces from the collection to create your dream dress.

The first dress we created is an ivory two piece, that features in our new capsule collection launching soon! It is a skirt and top with a tulle overlay embellished with flowers. The idea is you can choose the look you want from the separates - the best way to create a look that is you, and unique too.

The second look was created especially for the shoot - a bespoke design to a brief which of course is what we do here. (Want a bespoke dress? Have a read of our blog: A step by step guide to designing a bespoke wedding dress)

We wanted to create something that worked well with colour theme as well as the bride's hair! It is a black velvet bodice that flatters any shape, teamed with a satin full length skirt, proving that you do not have to wear white to get married! Plus this could be worn at a later date to another special occasion!

The aim of the shoot was to create a modern feel in a rustic barn rather than what is expected in this space. They chose burgundy and blush; the burgundy is so rich and opulent which not only works well with the woody tones of the barn, but works for all seasons. The metal geometric shapes continue to add the contemporary feel, giving it a clean look.

We have to talk about the amazing wedding cake surrounded by the beautifully coloured balloons, giving the cake display a real WOW factor. The rustic tables look great against the modern touches - it is not just about hessian jars and bunting if you want to choose this type of venue!
