Real Barefaced Bride | SHONA + JASON

Doesn’t our real bride Shona look absolutely gorgeous in her Rue De Seine gown, purchased via The Barefaced Bride? Shona’s other half, Jason, has a huge love of dahlias so Shona found that the ‘Dahlia’ gown suited perfectly. “The Dahlia dress was like nothing I had ever seen, and I’ve certainly seen my share of dresses,” Shona told Hello May in the couple’s feature, seen here. For any brides-to-be seeking to add a touch of elegant inspiration or some rustic elements to their big day, look no further than Shona and Jason’s intimate day of love in Kangaroo Valley.
