All about Papermoon Bridal by Dirty Fabulous

At the end of last year we launched our limited edition range of vintage style wedding dresses.
These 8 vintage inspired gowns have been lovingly designed by Caroline and I.  
Taking inspiration from some of the most beautiful vintage gowns we've encountered over the years of our vintage obsession we worked to create gowns our customers would adore.  
Our capsule collection is called Papermoon by Dirty Fabulous.

The Sweetie Darling
For all the sultry sirens channelling their inner startlet.  This 1930's style gown is begging to be sashayed in.  The rose gold beaded collar adds a luxe touch to a dress that is all about hugging the curves. 

 The Cherry Pie
A cupcake of a cutie! Taking it's inspiration from one of the very first 1950's prom dresses we had in store, which became one of their most asked after dresses. The blush colour and soft tulle pleating bring the bridal style stakes to a whole new level!

The Team for the Papermoon Shoot

We returned to our home county of Monaghan to assemble a team of extraordinarily talented and creative individuals that would help encapsulate their unique collection. 
The breathtaking photography by Táine King and wonderful film making by Ronan McMeel brilliantly interpreted the identity of Papermoon Bridal and the personality of Dirty 

The models on the shoot were some of the most amazing ladies we've ever worked with. They helped make a long days work completely effortless and fun!
