Touch of Tartan

Touch of Tartan was the theme of this stunning wedding. We love a challenge and Claire asked us to make her a bespoke wedding jumpsuit. We both wanted a contemporary look with the trousers, but also retain traditional elements, of a traditional wedding dress.  And then, we wanted the tartan, but just a touch of it. Claire went for a silk crepe as the trouser fabric, this drapes and looks soft and feminine. Then we had a strapless bodice with a sweetheart neckline with boning and structure to give a great shape. Then a lovely heavily beaded and sequinned lace…

Soft Mermaid Wedding Dress

Soft Mermaid Wedding Dress, is how I would describe Eilidh’s dress. But there is much more to it! Eilidh had different ideas when we first met to discuss dress. She wanted a bespoke dress with a specific neckline and long big fan out train and very pale ivory colour. But she had specific requirements too, as she was getting married in France at the height of summer and really didn’t want to be too hot. So we looked at it together and sourced some lovely heavy crepe, with a really heavy drape. The fabric worked really well. Eilidh wanted a…

Vintage Style Wedding dress with Silk Veil We have long been a fan of Adelaide’s Secret Garden.

Short beaded lace wedding dress

A simple Short beaded lace Wedding dress in silk with lace overlay. The lace has a floral pattern and embellished with beads and sequins. The cut and style suits Joanna’s tiny frame. We made a structured boned and bodice with internal lace-up. Then added the lace overlay, and finished it off with lace details made by hand. The Scalloped edges on the waist and neckline we make by hand. When we work in embellished lace we always have to remove the beads and sequins over the seams, as these cant go into the sewing machine. then we add them back…

Classic Wedding dress for Glen Tanar wedding

Classic Wedding dress for Glen Tanar Wedding Caroline has been in my extended circle of friends for as long as I remember. Therefore, it’s as a real honour to be asked to design and make her wedding dress for her. Caroline wanted a modern take on the Classic Wedding Dress, with a strapless full skirt, so that’s what we made her. The dress is based on a Duchesse satin bodice and a full tulle skirt. The tulle is layered with soft thin tulle on the outside. We then used thicker tulle on the inside, hence to add to the volume….

Wedding in Tivoli Copenhagen

1950es style dress

Wedding in Tivoli Copenhagen A dream come true for me when we got to make Rachel’s bespoke wedding dress.

Too many coincidences… and it felt just right we should make Rachels dress. The dress was to be inspired by the 1950es style wedding dress. I am a total fan of Dior’s New Look and that whole era, so I was very excited about it all. Rachel chose a…
