Not Going to the Chapel
Updated: May 20, 2020
Before you all freak out.. NO I am not getting married. Unless you count my bed as an optional partner in life.. no one gets me like my pillows do.
But no no no, I just had to make a debut in bridal to see what all the fuss is about.
Cue the ‘All Who Wander‘ collection by Essense Australia.
Now as a wedding photographer by weekend, I have seen my fair share of wedding dresses. Brides, I’m not judging.. but I am taking notes. Its like dress shopping for life (again, no futures hubbies in sight.. but when I DO.. hehe, I’ll know.. I think). This was actually my FIRST TIME ever putting on a wedding dress *gasp*. I’ve worked with bridal shops, wedding styled shoots, actual weddings, wedding veils, you NAME IT. But I had never actually put on one of the dresses. And my goodness, I have a new found respect for my brides. Those things are heavy!! But oh my are they magical.
For the All Who Wander collection, I am wearing the Raven gown (1st set) and the Finn gown (2nd set). I don’t even think I could choose which I loved more.
The raven gown was chic and textured and I have always been interested in an off the shoulder look (you can also wear it as normal sleeves). Then I wore the Finn and my goodness did this material have the most effortless movement, as you can tell from my photos. This one also has removable sleeves which I did because I love a short sleeve bridal dress.
BUT BRIDES, HOW DO YOU DO IT!!?? The thought of narrowing it down to one dress is absolutely mind boggling. Thankfully, I don’t have to make that decision any time soon, but ladies if you are on the hunt.. All Who Wander, might be a great place to end up.
Epilogue: To my potential future husbands out there, I’m taking applications.
