Rainbows, Butterflies, Milkshakes & The Viral Selkie Puff Dress

If you so much as glace at social media these days it’s highly likely that you’ll have come across Selkie, their their puff dresses have been going all kinds of viral since last year. And not without due cause, their hyper feminine princess fairy princess aesthetic is right up our street. As soon as we saw their dresses in fact we knew they would be perfect for a bride, even though they’re not really wedding dresses (who cares when they’re this pretty, huh!?) So, we’re super thrilled that Cassandra Daye Photography felt the same and put this shoot together using the gawwwjus Rainbow Puff dress.

Cassandra told us all about it, “I wanted to create something with Olivia and Josh that was fun, playful and unique, but also represented everyone’s style and personality. Cue the iridescent rainbows and streamers, pastels and disco balls, balloons and roller skates, pink guitars and unicorn milkshakes!”

“Olivia styled her and Josh, inspired by the pastel Selkie dress of my dreams and I wanted it to feel like the magic of first falling in love – the ‘rainbows and butterflies’ honeymoon phase with rose coloured glasses – since Olivia and Josh had only been together for a couple of months when we shot this.”

“We shot at L and L Market in Nashville. We started at the coolest retro milkshake bar called Gracie’s and then headed to a new wedding venue in the market, Ozari, to skate and dance and let the magic happen!”

With the dress, the milkshakes and the playful nature of this shoot, it almost evokes memories of our childhood. We hope this inspires you to choose things that you find fun, beautiful and perfect for the two of you for your wedding day whether they’re typically ‘bridal’ or not.

Gothic Geek Wedding with Skulls, Tequila & a Donnie Darko ‘Frank’ Mask

Abby and Jack’s April wedding was influenced by their love of skulls, tequila, music and their favourite films and TV shows – ‘gothic geek’ is how they described it to their friends.

They incorporated Lord of the Rings and Nightmare before Christmas into their vows and had a Star Wars cantina band on loop for 10+ minutes while they signed the register. The newly married couple walked back up the aisle too Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, the perfect upbeat song to to get the celebrations underway, and of course they had some great tunes playing during the wedding breakfast, too.

“We wanted the day to reflect us and to not be a completely traditional wedding”, Abby told us. “I was on Pinterest a lot and took bits that I liked to make our own. We’re not the most imaginative couple, but I like to think that we did ourselves proud. We did keep some traditional things though; I wore white (despite friends guesses that I’d be in black or purple!) and we still had the speeches and first dance.”

Shell and Mark celebrated their wedding on 5th June and while they had a lot of friends and family that couldn’t be there, they still wanted to go all out and have the colourful wedding of their dreams for their ten guests.
