Gileston Manor Style and Glamour

Part One

Welcome to the Gileston Manor style and glamour editorial. Each year I have the incredible opportunity to collaborate with ONE1 Bridal boutique based in Cardiff.  I am thrilled to share this elegant editorial showcasing three of their designer wedding dresses.

For our first gown we chose this unforgettable lace masterpiece by DANDO London. To contrast the delicate lace, I photographed the dress against the light stone and ironwork of the church. St Giles Church stands within grounds of Gileston Manor adjacent to the main house. The dress has a detachable lightweight overskirt that makes a lovely train. You could consider removing it post wedding ceremony.
