Laura & Greig’s Wedding in the Glasshouse Hotel, Edinburgh

When Laura was planning her wedding she had ideas of quite a contemporary wedding. She had booked the The Glasshouse Hotel Edinburgh for the ceremony and reception and it’s a lovely modern Wedding Venue just at the foot of Carlton Hill. Laura went for a long length bodice, with a lace overlay, it had a boned bodice with internal lace up and lots of structure and boning. She had the lace overlay coming up over the bodice and sitting directly on her skin on a halter neck neckline. The skirt was many layers of tulle in different weights and levels…

Drumtochty Castle and Vintage Bridesmaids Dresses

 Keri-Ann had a whole folder with images of Vintage details she would like to include in her wedding preparations.

The girls had silk douppion bolero jackets…

Susi tells me she now feels her dress has its own story with all the conversations…

Emma, going for gold!

Emma had plans for her wedding to be a small intimate affair, only the closest people from her friends and family. The wedding was at the Registry office on the Royal Mile, a gorgeous meal at Angels with Bagpipes, and at night time.. lots and lots of dancing. Emma had decided for a short dress. She originally brought in her favorite “party-dress” and we looked at things she liked about that, and changed some details and that was the starting point for Emma’s Wedding dress. We made her dress in a silk douppion, the skirt is a true circle, and…
