I’ve been properly excited about the Giraffe Shed ever since it first popped up on my Instagram feed. It’s a brand new wedding venue, built just this year with Hannah’s whole family helping out. Natural light pours in through glass walls, a rainbow wall and three (count ’em) neon lights in the shape of lightning strikes.

In short, it’s the perfect barn wedding venue for a festival wedding. If you want your wedding to be all about colour, fun, an epic location, and if you want to create something that’s truly unique, you really need to check out this gallery. Together, the suppliers put together an alternative, slightly edgy look, shattering the illusion that all weddings need to be light, airy, floaty and girly. Weddings can be whatever you want them to be.

As you can tell from the picture above, the shed is still not quite finished. It’s open for shoots like this, but it’s not quite yet ready for real weddings.  So under the direction of Elysian Hive, and with a crack team of suppliers (listed below), I set out to the Shed on a (very) drizzly Sunday, and got some epic shots.
