Short 50’es style wedding dress

Short 50es style wedding dress for a stunning winter wedding at Carlowrie Castle. Laurene knew pretty much exactly what she wanted when she visited us for the first time. She had loads of ideas and images with vintage and lace details. We very quickly moved on to make the real dress, and then we had to wait for a while for the wedding day to arrive, we as impatient as Laurene. She spent the time organising so many DIY details for the wedding. I have rarely seen more beautiful stationery and she made her own cake and so many other…

Relaxed Converted Barn Wedding

A Relaxed Converted Barn Wedding at Healey Barn,  is the exciting brief Rebecca presents me with at our first meeting. Lots of planning had gone into the wedding which would make the lovely couple achieve a relaxed fun day for everybody. The dress had to match the feel!.  By working together and choosing materials from our samples in the shop we created something fully bespoke for Rebecca. Her dress is based on a boned bodice and a soft flowy silk satin chiffon skirt. With that Rebecca chose an ivory embroidered tulle overlay, therefore, creating a kind of soft “blousey” soft feel. By adding decorations of pearl…

Beautiful wheelchair bride

Emma’s bride dress requirement had to suit her wheelchair. Emma spends time out of the chair, as well as in. The bespoke dress had to be all of that of a wonderful wedding dress, and then it had to fit into the chair. Finding Emma’s fine features really suited the delicate embroidered tulle with sequins and beads and silver embroidery. So that was chosen for bodice and sleeves. Silk satin chiffon, overlay in a full A-line skirt without a train was a great option to sit soft over the legs. The advantage of the silk was also limited creasing for…
