Bespoke Dress for Boat Ceremony

A beautiful bespoke dress for a wedding on the water

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Lindsay to create her bespoke wedding dress. it is one of our favourite wedding dresses. Here are some words from her about the dress and about her gorgeous day:

“I went to Mette with a vague idea of what I wanted. A Pinterest, a bridesmaid and a friend, and a few hours later had a drawing of a dress that I loved! Mette knew exactly what I wanted. Even before I did! She picked out details that featured several times in the ideas that I showed and incorporated these into the design. It was also really important to me to be comfortable throughout the day and this was taken on board.”

“I absolutely adored the 3D floral lace used for the top of the dress and appliques on the skirt. It was super luxurious, unusual and gave what was quite a traditionally shaped dress a more modern edge. There are endless gorgeous dresses out there. However, I found getting to pick the details and play about with how it would look really exciting. I don’t think I would have loved the dress quite as much had I not been so actively involved in its design. Ultimately, the dress was exactly what I wanted, wonderfully finished and fitted me perfectly.”

The ceremony

“Our ceremony took place on MV Lomond Prince, a Cruise Loch Lomond boat, which sailed from the village of Luss, Scotland where I grew up. As we both grew up right beside the water, and Kenny was a fisherman when he was younger, we thought there was something fitting about getting married on the water. It was a bit of a risk, weather-wise, even in summer – it is Scotland! – but we were so lucky on the day. ”

“Picking a photographer that we both loved was one of the most important decisions we made in the run-up to the wedding. We looked at lots of photographer’s work online but loved Suzanne’s photos as soon as we saw them. She has a distinctive style – the pictures are so light and pretty – yet they are not too stylised and won’t date over time.”
