Wedding day threads have seen a number of transformations in the last few years, none we can get behind so much as comfort. When we were dreaming up concepts for our next shoot we decided it was high time to champion gowns and good stuff as snug as they are sweet.

First featured in Issue 27 of Hello May mag, and shot by HM fave Jack Steel, our A Perfect Match shoot features the kind of bridal wear that you can don a sneaker with. We’ve got groovy blouse and pant combos, a couple of shorties and two jumpsuits for good measure. Whether you are on the prowl for a comfy as heck reception outfit or an all-day dreamboat of a gown, you will be sure to find more than a few options below. You will also find a whole heap of relaxed hair and makeup references courtesy of the talented Makeup by Megan, so have those Pinterest boards handy.

For brides keen to don pants, we can’t recommend Prea James Bridal’s Aurora Pant and Cecile Blouse highly enough. Tailored, but with a splash of drapey goodness, we can confidently claim this as one of our fave looks to date.

Luci Di Bella and Friend of Audrey serve up short and sweet whilst Grace Loves Lace fulfils our slinky silk fantasy with their Honey Silk Gown. If two pieces are your main vibe, check out the embellished confection below from White Meadow. For gals keen on a sprinkling of sparkle, Karen Willis Holmes has you covered.

To top it all off, we’ve scattered a whole heap of hand-selected accessories from the folk at Grew & Co, Forever Soles and Kitte throughout. You can find a heap of these goodies stocked at a bunch of our fave boutiques across Australia including Love Marie Bridal in Camden and Hope X Page in the South of Syd.
