Millions of pearls

millions of pearls

Millions of pearls Millions of pearls decorated this beautiful wedding dress for Annmarie. We made a stunning bodice with the embellishment of all the tiny little pearls on a satin fabric. You may not know when we work in heavily embellished fabrics, you may not know, but we need to strip the material entirely of all the embellishment on all seams and then add them again to cover the seam. Quite a bit of work goes into that, as you can imagine. The skirt was a Duchesse satin skirt with a tulle overlay creating a beautiful train at the back….

Halter neck beaded lace dress

Halter neck beaded lace dress This was such a lovely request for a bespoke dress. Laura was looking for a halter neck dress with a really low back and made in beaded lace. There are always challenges when you work in lace because you want to love the lace design and the edgings of the lace need to work with the design as well. This was the perfect place. And we bought every single piece in the country. We needed extra lace to overlay the lace so the seams would be invisible. We made a fitted satin dress. Then fitted…

Tartan on short dress

Short silk wedding dress with tartan

Tartan on a short dress Buchanan tartan was the simple detail on this short, sophisticated wedding dress. We loved making this wedding dress. Catriona has been a customer with us for a few years and we have become friends in the process. It was such an honour to be involved in this wedding. I loved getting asked to help them get dressed and send them off on the day. Catriona wanted a short simple off-the-shoulder wedding dress. The groom is a Buchanan, and we represented his tartan on the simple box pleat detail on the back of the wedding dress….

Romantic vintage-inspired dress Working with Stacey is a delight. She is so in tune with amazing ideas and she works really hard to achieve her vision across every single detail of her wedding. She has a beautiful Scottish Highland Wedding in Glen Clova. That dress Before our first meeting we had had exchanges of ideas and she really liked soft vintage-inspired ideas. I was so honoured she came all the way from Aberdeenshire to meet with me and talk over her ideas. We picked a beautiful fine polka dot tulle and a warm ivory satin to go with it. While…

Cambo Estate wedding

2 piece wedding dress

Cambo Estate wedding was booked for a while for this wedding. This is another wedding postponed due to covid. But totally worth the wait. I am not lying when I say I have been pretty excited about this one. For a few reasons. The gorgeous bride and groom are like me very fond of the outdoors and active lifestyles. Obviously, this wedding had to reflect that. So right from the start, I knew Julia would not want a dress with a big train or corsetry or anything else which would restrict her movement.  So we made her this gorgeous embroidered…

Stunning bride in jumpsuit

This stunning bride came to see us with an idea of a jumpsuit for her wedding. We love getting requests for slightly different ideas. We wanted this bespoke jumpsuit to be super special, and it had to fulfil the requirements of being beautiful and having some traditional “wedding” features and also be practical and nice to wear for a super fun and a proper dance session at the reception. I feel we fulfilled all the requirements, and I couldn’t be happier about how Claudia looked on the day. Claudia’s jumpsuit is made in pure silk satin, it has a deep…

Sophisticated City Wedding

sophisticated city center wedding

Sophisticated City Wedding This was the vision for Karen’s big day – with a gothic twist that ties in with the setting of Edinburgh’s Old Town. With her design background, she carried the vision out impeccably. It shows so much in all that she planned for her wedding, so stylish and sophisticated. That dress! We made Karen’s bespoke dress in pure silk crepe. She had a deep and wide square neckline and squared sleeves which were long and slightly fluted at the wrist. We made a super fitted skirt which flared out at the knees and flowed into a beautiful…
