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…

The first was a dress worn by Princess Margaret designed by Christian Dior, she loved the a-symmetric neckline of that dress.

Mrs and Mrs at The Treehouse

Anna and Jackie became Mrs & Mrs at The Treehouse at Loch Goil in August, what a dream like venue on a beautiful summers day. We absolutely loved the brief for Anna and Jackie’s wedding. They wanted a fun informal “weather permitting” outdoors wedding at this beautiful wedding venue in the summer in Scotland. Anna was set on a short lace wedding dress. She likes this stunning lace in a porcelain colour. The lace has beading and an Art deco design. The lace has gorgeous edging and it’s denser on one side and become less dense as we come further…

Myanmar inspired wedding dress

Myanmar inspired wedding dress

Such an exciting wedding dress to make, as Nuam is from Myanmar and wanted to incorporate the traditional elements of the national costume the “longyi” but also have a traditional “western” wedding outfit. I absolutely love the final look of it. She suits it so well. So we made the “longyi” skirt which is like a wrap-around skirt. We made it in the heavy Mikado fabric. We also made a boned bodice in the same fabric, to go over the top. Then we spent quite a bit of time choosing the embellishments. Nuam went for lovely guipure lace motifs down…

Gorgeous Crepe Wedding Dress

That gorgeous crepe wedding dress Hilary was the loveliest bride to deal with. She came to me with a rough sketch of the wedding dress she had made herself. She had not tried any dresses on and didn’t really fancy going through all that. We went through a lot of details about the design, the fastening and the cut and the details. She would really like a very minimalist outfit. I love minimalist so much. But the challenge is to get enough detail that it looks interesting and special, I felt we absolutely managed to do that on Hilary’s dress….
