Inspiration

We're more than a little bit dotty for the bridal party gowns and accessories featured on today's city wedding. Bride Rose's best girls look both fierce and flirty in polka dot orange bridesmaid dresses from the high street, and matching their spots perfectly is Rose herself with a stunning cathedral length polka dot wedding veil. The gorgeous Autumnal hues echo in the flower and cake designs and bring a welcome pop of colour amongst all the greenery at the Barbican Conservatory wedding venue in London. Shall we take a look?

What Made Out Day Unique

It was really amazing seeing everything come together on the day. The venue itself is so unique, we didn’t want to have anything that would fight with the beautiful greenery and instead compliment it and allow it to be the hero. When I walked into the space and heard the quartet playing the songs we requested, I was really overwhelmed. I remember standing on the balcony in the conservatory waiting for people to come up for photos during the drinks reception, the quartet was playing Crazy in Love and I was watching everyone mingling and enjoying the music. I loved having everyone who’s special to us in one room.

Orange Bridesmaid Dresses

Bride Rose turned to the highstreet to find her bridal party's orange bridesmaid dresses with sheer polka dot design, which match her own polka dot wedding veil beautifully. They are the perfect shade for an Autumnal wedding and pop against all the plants and foliage within the glasshouse wedding venue. Although we don't often see spots, it's not the first time they've graced our pages. Take a look at real bride Siobhan in our archives who also dons a polka dot veil. Will you be going dotty too?

Inspiration & Styling

It was a city wedding inside the Barbican so we thought something too traditional wouldn’t work. The bridesmaids wore these amazing orange dresses from Zara which started us off of introducing colour pops here and there. The venue has so much green around that we avoided neutral tones and went a bit bolder with florals etc.

Rose & Ed
Rose and Ed split wedding planning down the middles, dividing up everything they needed and researching each area before agreeing on a supplier. They ensured everything they booked was needed before parting with their cash, keeping a tight hold of the budget and vision.
