FED UP WITH A LACK OF VISUAL INSPIRATION FOR SAME SEX BRIDES, UK ILLUSTRATOR SHOSHANA BRATTON SET ABOUT CREATING HER OWN BOHO CHIC WEDDING STYLE.

Flipping through wedding magazines as a brideto- be, I was hit by a sinking sensation. White dresses, white cake, white groom, white bride, on every page. If you aren’t straight and/or white, chances are you’d feel that tinge of exclusion too. There were lots of subtle but grating moments my wife and I experienced when planning our wedding. We felt like aliens looking in on a culture we didn’t fit into. So eight months after our wedding, when I launched my illustration company Shoshy Cadoodle, I began plotting to do something that would challenge the wedding industry’s exclusivity. I set up a styled wedding photoshoot featuring an interracial, same-sex couple. Two dresses. One LGBT-friendly team. A whole flower wall and a sprinkle of sparkle later, we had our shoot. I hope this spread will leave brides-to-be feeling empowered, rather than excluded.
