Confetti cannons, concrete cakes, and the incredible fashion of two brides make this an inspiration shoot with a difference. The fashion, including polka dots, bridal separates, and trainers, is the perfect attire for an alternative bride. Meet Cara and Jade, Rock n Roll brides doing bridal their own way.

A polka dot black and white wedding dress teamed with a leather jacket and boots.

Engaged couple Cara & Jade were brought in for their alternative style and love of the non-traditional. Their own individual style as a couple was actually the starting point for their look. We wanted to create something different and something a little bit edgy with metallics and dark colours. As Drovers Rest already had an eclectic sitting room set up in their barn, we decided to work with this and a yellow sofa and geometric rug became the inspiration for the overall colour scheme which was dark metallics with yellow accents.

Bridal separates & leather jacket cover-ups

There's nothing we love more than seeing a bride look like the best version of herself on her wedding day. Be that a black and white wedding dress like Cara's or separates like Jade. It's important you feel comfortable. Because when you do, that's when the magic happens and your joy radiates for all to see. Just look at those incredible confetti bomb captures!


Metallic bridal fashion

"Building on the metallics / black and white theme, Cara was dressed in an amazing polka dot design by E&W Couture teamed with the obligatory Doc Martins. With Jade, we wanted to really mix it up so we teamed a super casual black ti shirt with E&W’s amazing Sienna skirt. Both looks worked amazingly well and really represented the girl’s personalities and style. " - Francesca Hill

If you're a same-sex couple with an alternative edge we can highly recommend looking at this, Wild Moment, Two Women, One Love wedding inspiration too.
