Recently, I attended my Dad’s wedding which was a truly beautiful day. I attended the service, the celebration afterwards and went for drinks after that so I wanted my outfit to be perfect for all of these scenarios. I was even lucky enough to be given the opportunity to be the photographer of the event. I captured some amazing images which I’m sure my dad and his new wife will treasure forever.
As it is now wedding season, I thought sharing my outfit with you would be worthwhile and possibly helpful for those who are attending a wedding and may need inspiring.
Here is the outfit I wore…
Jumpsuit: Quiz £24.99 (originally £34.99)
I went into Quiz to look through the Quiz X Towie collection as I’d seen some beautiful outfits (three of which I tried on) but I looked through the sale section while I was in store and fell in love with the outfit I chose. However, the material is very thin and meant that the undergarments you wore could be seen. So wearing a nude, seamless pair was my only option and even then you could see the outline of my pants. This didn’t matter to me too much but as there was a chill later in the day, my sister allowed me to borrow a white blazer which covered up this problem anyway. Other than that, the jumpsuit was very comfortable and the pattern and colours were perfect for a summer wedding.
Bag: Michael Kors – Ebay £55
This bag was an absolute bargain and although it was second hand it was in perfect condition and sold for an unbelievable price. The tan colour didn’t take too much attention away from my outfit and the size meant I could carry all the items I needed including my Nikon DSLR and my polaroid camera safely. It allowed me to keep my outfit sophisticated rather than carrying my ugly camera bag around.
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins £14 (originally £20)
Unbelievably, I didn’t already own any nude heels so I was happy to find these for a decent price. I took plasters in case these shoes weren’t comfortable but after wearing them for over 15 hours, my feet weren’t one bit sore. Definitely a good buy!
Fascinator: British Heart Foundation £7.99
I looked all over for a small fascinator to match my shoes. I didn’t want one too big as I wanted all of the attention to be on my jumpsuit. I found this lovely one brand new in the British Heart Foundation shop and not only was it the perfect colour, it was good to know my money was going to a good cause. Following the wedding, I found some similar fascinators in Home Bargains for £2.99 in black, pink and nude colours.
