OOTD: Wedding Outfit

Jacket:Jessica's Attic @ Republic (old)
Hair Flower:Claire's Accessories

Heyy everyone!  Thought my OOTD post today would be of the outfit I wore to a friend's wedding that I was photographing a few days ago.  I never usually wear colours like this, but I was looking around for AGES for a dress and none really stood out to me from the usual shops.  I finally settled on this one from Lipsy because I loved the pleated overlay skirt and the lacy top half. The colour is quite summery and unlike any colour I would normally choose, and I chose to wear it with pink accessories just because i love pink and I hoped that once it was all put together they would all match!  The jacket type thing was a last minute decision when I found out that it was supposed to rain (it actually didn't in the end), I bought it online from Republic ages ago and have never worn it out before.  The only thing that bothered me a bit was that the dress didn't really have a shape around the waist, it just kind of hung there and made me look a bit wider than I am, but I can look past this because I love everything else about it!  

The wedding itself was lovely,  I got a bit of a shock when I found out that the bride wanted me at the front of the room next to the Registrar(?) to take photos of them exchanging the rings etc, I had a mini panic about it which I had to quickly get over!
But apart from that it was fine, and I got a couple of hundred photos that looked lovely mainly because of how gorgeous the bride looked!  The evening was filled with food and drink, and suddenly I was grateful that my dress was a little bigger around the waist!  

OH and I just thought I'd add that my lipstick was actually made up of three different brands and colours believe it or not!  Just because the colours on their own didn't look right so I first put on Topshop Lipstick in Infrared, then layered Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Liptick in 20 Rosetto over the top, and finished it off with a clear lipgloss by Mabelline.  It sounds a bit much, but by putting on a couple of light layers of each colour on they belended to make a colour that I thought was juuuuust about right for the outfit!  Hope you are having a great week xx
