African Inspired Wedding Dress

Wedding dress inspired by Africa

Africa is Alex’s passion, so much so, she has set up a business arranging luxury travels to Africa called Extraordinary Africa.  She is a busy girl but still arranged a beautiful wedding at her parent’s farm in Northamptonshire.

When Alex first came to us she told us the very happy news that she was in the early stages of pregnancy. We made a plan for her dress, choosing style fabrics and details. We then did a calico fitting and then we put the dress to the side for a few months. When there were only 3 weeks at Alex’s wedding we started again on the dress, we did the calico fitting again. We could clearly see where she had changed shape. We then made her dress for her and it was ready to take away to England a few days before the big day.

To have a little bit of Africa on her dress, Alex sourced a bunch of beautiful red cotton batik fabrics, we made a very deep belt on her wedding dress to sit over the join of the bodice and skirt. We loved how personal and individual it turned out.

We have very happy news to report, Alex gave birth to a little boy, and they are both doing well. Alex is coming back to see me get the wedding dress 2 pieces made into something she can wear again.

We loved working with Alex, and we absolutely adore the photographs Bella from Wild Weddings took of the beautiful day, thank you so much for letting us share them.
