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….

Sequins and Stunning lace

Sequins and stunning lace and beautiful headdress… so proud, I felt it all came together perfectly. So lovely that Moira had heard about Freja from a few different people and she came in to talk about her wedding dress. She had some ideas and I pointed her towards this beautiful sophisticated lace. The lace is a contemporary design with a scallop leafy design and shimmering sequins. The lace is made with a textured thread that looks like linen and gives it lots of character. The Dress also had a deep cowl neck collar on the back. It was made in…

Scottish Norwegian alliance

Scottish Norwegian alliance This beautiful wedding was a long time coming. Fiona and Mharit asked us to make Mharits wedding dress, this made my day. This in fact goes a long way back, in fact, January 2019. Planning a wedding is hard. Add into that, 2 countries. Then add covid. The wedding was planned a few times over, and each time re-arranged due to Covid. Each time was so upsetting. But eventually, they got their perfect day. I loved Mharit’s story. Beautiful talented young Scottish silver and goldsmith (see her beautiful work here), falling in love with a Norwegian man…

Jumpsuit for Scottish Highland wedding

  Jumpsuits for weddings, I think my new favourite thing. I think Rachel wore it better than anyone. I was over the moon when Rachel contacted me about her picking a jumpsuit for her Scottish Highland wedding. She had fixed ideas on style and together we chose the fabrics to achieve the soft heavy drape of the palazzo pant style trouser part and smooth dull satin for the bodice. We structured the bodice with heavy interlining and bones to make it super sharp looking. I love the contemporary look of it. Rachel bought a mesh wrap to wear over the…

4th time lucky Wedding – seems to be the rule for Johanna and her husband. They organised their wedding 4 times over, each time disappointed that covid restrictions came in the way.

The venue was the Ballintaggart farm in Perthshire. The lovely farm known for beautiful food and views was the perfect venue. Scotland showed the best…

Lake District Garden Wedding A very beautiful silk wedding dress was what we made for Shonagh. She had planned a beautiful garden wedding in her parent’s garden in the Lake District.
