Short wedding dresses are having a moment

At Frock Goddess we love an alternative bridal look! Our mini wedding dress looked just the part for this fabulous recent photo shoot.

The shoot took place in Disbury, Manchester and was a result of a collaboration with local independent business such as Ashleigh at Didsbury Bicycle Hire; and Billy & Cin Basler and Holmes photography.

The Dress

The Frock Goddess 'Ellen' mini dress has a square neckline and cute puff sleeves. It is made from organic cotton. We teamed it with a veil to create the perfect laid back bridal look.

We managed to get three different looks for the dress in the one shoot which shows just how versatile this lovely dress is!

The first look was styled with a veil and white boot. This would look perfect at a Registry Office/City Hall or beach wedding. It also works well as an evening or going away outfit.

In the second look the bride ditched the flowers and put on a pair of white shades creating a retro 60s bridal look.

And thirdly the bride wore a customised leather jacket from Mama Inc Studio

The Bicycle and flowers

The bicycle made for two was from Didsbury Bicycle Hire.

Ashleigh has a range of vintage Pashley bikes that can be hired for weddings, special occasions, picnics, and romantic dates. Ashleigh acquires these vintage bikes and lovingly restores them herself.

She is also a very talented florist as you’ll see from these pictures and can organise flowers for you too.

More details of the services they offer can be found on their website here

The Photography

The stunning photos were taking by Billy & Cin from Basler & Holmes. They are both super laid-back people who clearly have an eye for absolutely stunning photos.

The models

And the lovely Casey and Sam from Bisous Bisous in Didsbury agreed to model for us.

The location

The Parsonage Gardens in Didsbury were happy to let us use their gardens for the shoot. This place makes a stunning wedding venue.

And the Didsbury Pub kindly let us use their facilities for changing etc.

A lot of fun was had – especially when Casey and Sam were getting the hang of riding a bicycle made for two! Although they did impressively get the hang of it very quickly.

Thanks for reading!
