Styled Shoot at the Giraffe Shed Wedding Venue in September 2018

About 12 months ago this awesome new venue popped up on my Instagram feed. The Giraffe Shed (in Mid-Wales) was still being built, but the vision that owners Hannah and Neil were working towards was incredible. A shed in a field, built with beautiful photos in mind, this venue is super cool, super relaxed and just flat out wedding goals for DIY weddings. 

It’s a blank slate, with some well chosen extra touches that really help to set it off. A wall painted in pastelly bright rainbow tones to one side gives this otherwise rural location a touch of urban cool, and the charred barn exterior adds a bit of moody industrialness. If you’re not into light and airy girly styles, but instead fancy something with more grit and life, then this is really a venue you should take a look at.

This was a styled shoot, and all suppliers are listed with their instagram links at the end of the photos. 

If you’re considering getting married at The Giraffe Shed then hit me up! I’d love to photograph some real weddings here. Oh, and they have a super duper new business deal going on until the end of 2019, so check that out too.
