What Helen Wore: Zoo Wedding

Blazer | New Look
Dress | The Rodnik Band
Shoes | Dorothy Perkins
Bag | TK Maxx
Skull Ring | Datter Industries
Brain Ring | VeraMeat

Yes you read that right, I spent part of my weekend celebrating in Edinburgh zoo! It was the wedding of my uni friend Stacey and her other half, Sven. They're not ones for convention so the unusual venue fit their style perfectly. Of course I whole heatedly stuck with the theme and chose to wear this amazing octopus dress by The Rodnik Band. Turns out the groom is a sucker for invertebrates, making my choice even more appropriate. It was such an amazing venue and a brilliant day filled with smiles, dancing and good friends. Thanks so much to the happy couple for inviting me to share it with them.

I have to say this outfit really benefited from the act of borrowing. The dress is on loan to me from my sister and the jacket and necklace were last minute additions from the wardrobe of Kimberley. I do love having friends and family who are a similar size to me. It more than doubles my wardrobe choices! Plus Kimberley put her hand to hairdressing and did this wee updo for me. No mean feat considering how short my hair is. She did a sterling job, even if my vigorous dancing meant it didn't stay up for the whole night. Friends can be so useful sometimes.

What's your wedding guest style?


  1. I love that dress!

  2. Love the print on the dress and the way you accessorised it. Nice job borrowing so much from your sister and Kimberly! Now I really want to celebrate a wedding at the zoo. Sounds like so much fun!
    It was so nice meeting you both at the blogger's meet-up yesterday and I'm loving your blog. x

  3. That dress is fantastic! One of my friends went to a wedding at the zoo a couple of weeks ago, it sounds like such an amazing location! So much fun! You look fantastic and congratulations to your friends xo
