Wintry wedding at the Bonham hotel

Alison came to see us with a short concise brief for her wedding dress. She wanted luxurious fabrics, lace top, no train, simple a-line. Her wedding was going to be a small wintry intimate family affair in the Bonham Hotel. She went for a skirt in a silk zibeline, it gave a really rich and wintry texture to her dress and a lovely contrast for the very fine pretty chantilly empire line bodice, which was to go on top of her dress. The dress is a soft dress with very light boning. She wrote to us after and said: “Thank…

dark navy and pink bridesmaids dresses

Catherine ordered 4 bridesmaids dresses from us. We were excited about her ideas of her Dundas Castle wedding and Flowers from Planet flowers and lovely Autumnal feel to the day. The girls were¬† lovely to work with. We made 3 adult bridesmaids dresses, one which was a maternity dress, and one dress for Catherine’s gorgeous teenage niece. Catherine chose a dark navy and a pale pink for her niece, it looked so lovely for that season and with lovely soft textured bouquets to match. We were blown away by Sarah Elizabeths Photographs, and we were ready to move into the…

long sleeved vintage style wedding dress

Effie was one of our many brides this year who stays in London, live a really busy life and couldn’t just pop in during lunch break. Lucky enough her sweet mum came to see us and enquire initially on her behalf. We made some initial contact, and when we first met the bride it was a joy. She had given so much thought to her dress. She brought in a fantastic family album with pictures of her relatives, who had married in dresses, we were to take inspiration from.We ended up with a matte silk duchesse silk satin dress. It…

Ivory silk dress with beaded silk motifs

Sarah’s sister had had a lovely evening dress made by us, so we were delighted to be asked to make Sarah’s wedding dress soon after she was engaged. Sarah went for a lovely silk chiffon satin, she had a simple clean silhouette created by internal boning and corset. Then she went for lovely beaded motifs attached all over so it was close together on the bodice, and then faded out on the dress. We really liked how Sarah Bard styled her hair and her make up was done by Hannah Ostunio. The wedding was in the Calvary Chapel, York. Her…

Coffee colour bridesmaids dresses with ivory details

Claire’s wedding was full of vintage details and she wanted her 4 bridesmaids to complete the look and be complementary to her vintage style wedding dress. She went of a soft satin in a coffee colour, a bateau neckline and ivory deep cowl necks on the back. The cowl neck was so wide they almost made a little sleeve or cape on the back. There was deep ivory belt on all the dresses. They were fully lined and had concealed zips at the back.We loved how it all looked on the day where it was held at Broxmouth Park Estate…

Sophisticated Vegas Wedding

It was such a funny and not least happy co-incidence we ended up making Claire’s wedding dress as Claire lives in London. Claire was visiting her friend in Edinburgh, and randomly walked passed our shop, and fell in love with a dress in our window.She arranged to be in Edinburgh soon after on business and arranged to come and see us. We were delighted to meet her and talk her ideas through for her Vegas Wedding. She ended up settling for slightly different than the original idea. She had a long length bodice with Chantilly lace overlay, internal corset and…
