Hair Accessories

Hair accessories are something we take great interest in. We love the work from Rene Walrus. We have a lovely working relationship with Rene Walrus and many a Freja Bride and Freja Mother of the Bride have worn her beautiful work. We are so happy to announce we are now sole stockist of the Hair Accessories and other Jewelry from Rene Walrus. Every piece made by hand.  Each collection has captured my heart, but the latest is just better than any previous collection. Here is what the designer Janet says about her work: ‘A delicate floral-inspired collection of bridal hair…

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…

Jumpsuit Bride with Cape

Jumpsuit brides we love! It is such a pleasure when we have brides with great contemporary ideas. Imogen was such a bride. Working as a makeup artist on film sets and period documentaries, she has such an eye for a really cool style. The couple had a huge schedule planned around the Wedding. Imogen is from Australia. The couple was in the process of wrapping up their life in Scotland and move to Australia to live there. Lots and lots to do, but the top of the list was a lovely wedding day, to celebrate with friends and family. Sloans…

It’s the perfect dress for…

Soft Silk Wedding Dress

soft silk dress

Soft silk wedding dress in different materials and textures was the starting point for this wedding dress. Eleanor likes soft to touch materials and wearing tops that are stylish, and simple and without structure. Making a bespoke wedding dress like that starts with sketches and playing around with ideas and fabric swatches. We were initially working towards a 2 piece, with a skirt and a top, but we ran into difficulties. We saw lines through the silk where the 2 joined. Getting in and out of the 2 pieces was also a challenge. Therefore, we made the call to make…

Women Supporting Each Other

Here is a little piece about 4 women who came together to work and supporting each other: Once in a while, like a lunar eclipse or a blue moon, a dynamic shift occurs. Two forces join together. Combined, they have the potential to create an exciting change. Freja Designer Dressmaking, based in Edinburgh is a women-run business and Vows Wedding Gown Awards Finalist. Shelley Grierson, a Ms Great Britain Finalist for 2019/2020 teamed up recently with the Freja team. They wanted to work together, on raising the profile of women in business, and in particular within the fashion and beauty…

Bohemian Style Bride

Bohemian Style Bride Beautiful Katie had lots of ideas on a soft modern wedding. Going for beautiful silks for a wrap-over style skirt gave a soft luxurious feel. She then picked a lovely polka dot mesh with stunning beaded embellishment. The combination gave it a slightly bohemian look. We then LOVE how she teamed the dress with vivid colored shoes and a bespoke headdress from Rene Walrus. The headdress is designed and made by Rene Walrus in Edinburgh and we are a sole stockist of the exclusive hand made jewelry. Katie and Elliot’s wedding ceremony was a beautiful ceremony in…

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…

Crisp Silk Wedding Dress

Crisp silk wedding dress for a beautiful May Bride. The classic dresses from the 50es are the inspiration for this bride’s stylish outfit. Hannah’s dress made in beautiful bespoke Ivory Dupion silk, a big Box Pleated skirt with a boned bodice and SweetHeart neckline. The dress fastened on the back with silk buttons and loops. We made Hannah 2 different belts, one for the daytime in silk and a little buckle. In the evening she went all out and had a wide crystal embellished crystal belt. The couple had a humanistic ceremony conducted by Tim Maguire . Tim conducts ceremonies…
