Colourful + edgy festival wedding inspiration at the UK’s hottest new venue The Giraffe Shed

Neon, glitter and colour for a festival wedding…

Ok, we don’t use those words lightly, but The Giraffe Shed really needs to be on your radar, and then on your ‘to book’ list, pronto. It’s a dream festival wedding location with rainbow walls, gritty industrial decor and NEON (the perk of the venue being owned by a phtoographer is incredible light)!

Take it away, ladies…

“Every once in a while you live your dream, a real dream, a dream that makes your heart sing, the butterflies in your stomach dance and you leave feeling like you’re floating on air… well this is exactly how I felt! On seeing the pink wall that Hannah had created, the first style that sprang to our mind was colour, and what better way to use colour than a dramatic festival theme?”

This edgy bridal shoot combines my love of creative photography, disco and glitter and makes references to fashions of the 1970’s and Studio 54. Having previously featured their last project (which you can see here,) I knew it would be something I had to share with you! Over to Hannah to tell us more…

I’ve been having a love affair with disco music this year, from the over-played classics that I’ve been finally actually listening to and falling in love with, to rare vintage tracks and new disco-infused indie music. This obsession got me thinking about creating some disco wedding inspiration for alternative couples.

The aesthetic was inspired by the fashions of the 70’s, Studio 54, with a modern edge and visualising the sound of the best disco music: glittering layers, high energy and lots of attitude. If you’re thinking this all sounds like a ridiculously complicated vision, then you’re absolutely right.
