If sweet silhouettes and cool colour palettes are your thang, our Issue 14 ‘Blushing Bride’ fashion editorial will be just your cup of tea. Dare to be different on your day of days with peach chiffons, blush silks and embellished off-white couture from some of the best of the best in the bridal industry.

Shot by the amazing Jai Long of Free the Bird Photography, we packed up in one of the coolest rides around (Common 4X4) and travelled down the coast with one of our fave cinematographers, La Lune Cinema, there to catch all the fun on film. Head down below to see the footage or click here to learn all about La Lune and see some of their previous work here and here.

Fast forward about an hour and a half later, we arrived at our totally epic location, The Reedsmith house. Owned and run by the lovely Tanika, The Reedsmith is a self-taught weaver who is heavily influenced by her love of wildflowers, Scandinavian tapestries, retro Americana and traditional folk art. Tanika created all of the gorgeous weaves you’ll see amongst scattered throughout the shoot.

Rocking gowns by (from below and in order of appearance) Odylyne, Lola Varma with Forever Vintage, Vera Wang, Wendy Makin, Vintage Christian Dior, Christos Costarellos, Karen Willis Holmes, Houghton NYC and French Collection, model Reagan of Vivien’s looked absolutely stunning, with hair and makeup by the epically talented Liv Lundelius.

Also showcasing accessories from Makery and Co, Samantha Wills, Gorman, Bride La Boheme and Najo and flowers by Gypsy Flora, this editorial is the perfect piece of inspiration for any #BlushingBride!
