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, coloured 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…

Buying your wedding dress

Buying your wedding dress I met a woman a couple of weeks ago, out with work, she had just got married. When she heard I worked with weddings, she was so excited to share all her stories from her wedding planning. Stories from her big day and the Honeymoon. Full of enthusiasm she told me all the details she had worked on and planned for months, nothing left to coincidence. But then, she started to talk about her dress. and a shadow went over her face. She had gone for a really high-end dress, and the Bridal shop only got…

Ballerina length wedding dress

Ballerina length was the perfect length for Rachel’s wedding dress.  She picked three different qualities of silk for her bespoke wedding dress. She chooses a lovely taffeta for the bodice and skirt. The skirt has a silk organza overlay and then a silk satin on the waist. The skirt is a full circle so we have lots and lots of silk in the skirt to give the lightness and the movement that makes the dress so elegant. Rachel loves colors,  she decided to pick flowers from an autumnal garden with lots of colour and textures. We have previously been to…

African Inspired Wedding Dress

Wedding dress inspired by Africa Africa is Alex’s passion, so much so, she has set up a business arranging luxury travels to Africa called Extraordinary Africa.  She is a busy girl but still arranged a beautiful wedding at her parent’s farm in Northamptonshire. When Alex first came to us she told us the very happy news that she was in the early stages of pregnancy. We made a plan for her dress, choosing style fabrics and details. We then did a calico fitting and then we put the dress to the side for a few months. When there were only…

Inky Blue Wedding Dress

An inky blue wedding dress was what Elaine was set on when we met. We played around with many shades of blue, much lighter ones and stronger ones. We then looked at this stunning inky blue colour, and it was set. The wedding was going to be a small affair with all the couples, close family, in the library at the stunning The Hub, followed by a meal. In the evening all their friends had been invited to a grand party in the big hall at The Hub. The dress is constructed with a boned structured bodice in luxurious marocain…
