Go-To Wedding Guest Dress

I’ve been waiting to photograph this dress ever since I picked it up in Anthropologie in LA back in April. It was one of those items that I picked up on a whim and whilst the rest of our group were chilling in the shoe section I tried it on. I came out to show everyone and as soon as I saw their faces, I knew I wouldn’t be able to leave without it. Apart from the bold polka dot pattern, what initially drew me was the way the material moved, combine that with the train it comes to at the back, it takes what could have been a plain tea dress to a whole other level.

One of the reasons it’s taken me so long to shoot it is because I wanted to find the perfect location. Miss Bush bridal is actually the dress shop that I bought my wedding dress from. It’s nestled in the picturesque town of Ripley in Surrey and apart from their beautifully curated dress selection, their shop is uniquely located in a small chapel. If you’re looking for wedding dress inspiration and tips from someone who has amazing knowledge within the industry, be sure to follow Emma and her team on Instagram! Also if you’re a bride looking for her dress and haven’t found it yet, (apart from me being secretly jealous that you get to try on all the wedding dresses) Miss Bush is definitely a place you should consider booking an appointment with.

These Aldo heels are also the perfect shade of gold/yellow to add a little bit of glamour too. The jewel detailing reminded me of those famous Manolo Blahnik pumps, made famous by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, however I love the sandal style and more affordable pricing of this pair (They also come in a beautiful nude/pink too!). You can also find alternatives to the polka dot dress here , here , here and here too!

Thanks to Emma for letting us shoot outside the chapel, it was the perfect location to shoot the ultimate wedding guest dress!
