Shop local gift guide

Shop local gift guide Purple Harris Tweed Bag

There has been so much noise this year about shopping locally, so much so, I thought I would make a shop local gift guide. There are so so many amazing local companies, but you know, it’s really hard to be heard for our small businesses. The big companies have so massive budgets for advertising. But I know so many lovely talented and dedicated small business owners, so here I am shouting about them. I will start with our offerings. We have made a selection of washbags, they can also be used as makeup bags or pencil cases. They are made…

Micro Wedding in Shetland

micro wedding in Shetland

Micro wedding in Shetland Laura was another one of our summer brides, who had a big wedding planned for June. She was due to have all her family and friends travelling with her to Shetland. They had plans to marry in the grounds of her in-law’s croft on the island of Unst, the most northerly island in Shetland. Instead, they had a beautiful Micro wedding in Shetland, and they had a lovely time. But you know, then COVID happened! Laura and Alex were keen to get married. For them, it was all about marriage and less so about the wedding….

Wedding Dress Belts

Wedding dress belts Wedding dress belts is something I love to talk about. Should I have a belt or not a belt?

Micro Wedding at Gleneagles Hotel Rachel ordered a wedding dress from us for her big day, booked for the 20th of March. If anyone of you have got any memory, then that was pretty much the day before the world went crazy, instead of the big wedding they ended up with the most beautiful micro wedding at Gleneagles Hotel. The week leading up to the wedding, they had so many decisions to make regarding the wedding but decided on going ahead with a very intimate group of the nearest and dearest.

Sicily Wedding Dress

Sicily Wedding Dress

Sicily Wedding Dress A wedding dress for a wedding in Sicily sounds like the stuff dreams are made of. Absolutely delighted to be asked by Shelley to make her beautiful dress for her. Shelley’s husband-to-be is from Scotland. We managed to do the wedding dress fittings when Shelley was up from Kent for family visits in Edinburgh. That Dress! So, the dress is made in a beautiful 100% silk crepe. The silk crepe made a fitted soft fishtail skirt with a big train. The top is essentially a mesh bodice with hand-stitched lace on top. Taking great care to find…

Emerald Green Wedding Dress

Emerald green wedding dress was Eimear’s bold choice, and we loved working on it. The traditional wedding dress shops rarely stock wedding dresses other than ivory, cream, white or perhaps champagne, if you are lucky. But we make quite a few bespoke coloured dresses, and we LOVE it. When you are considering a coloured wedding dress, you must really think it through. You must take into consideration there may be some people finding it strange, and so deal with that in your head before deciding. There may also be that bit of you thinking “this is my one time I…

February Wedding with 2 looks

Meeting Rosie was a joy. She loved her mum’s dressmaking and had lots of dresses individually made to her by her mum. Rosie loves bows, flowers, and full skirts…. so many lovely things to work with for us. All for a February wedding with 2 looks. We based her dress in a short dress from our collection. Rosie wanted a short dress, but to be fair, it grew a bit longer in the process. Then She LOVED the Rose Top from our collection. Which seemed like it was no coincidence with that name. We made a few changes so that…

Face Masks for Pandemic

Face masks for Pandemic, was certainly not my business plan When I set up my business, making face masks for a Pandemic was certainly not something I considered. I wanted to make ladies wear in tweed and leather. I then started to get enquiries for wedding dresses, and the rest is history. But now the last 6 weeks, the world has turned into a very different place. I was asked to design a prototype of a facemask. Like most of you, I always thought they were just silly. But I started looking into it. I started refining the design with…

Lockdown Wedding

Lockdown wedding So many of you have asked how all my amazing brides have coped with the lockdown. Well here is Mairi, her wedding was planned to take place that weekend when the whole country shut down. The week before they made a lot of changes to the wedding plans, including cancelling the large reception they had planed for many months. The couple had decided to still go ahead with the ceremony. Only the day before the church they belong to contacted them to say, they were worried about the safety. Then the church suggested to do the ceremony in…
