Lake District Garden Wedding

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. She had picked the date and kept to the date, but due to the corona restrictions had  2 parties to celebrate with all the people she wanted there. Shonagh initially had some different pictures of ideas from Pinterest. They were all stunning and we picked and chose a couple of ideas. The first thing was a simple dress with wrap-over detail and spaghetti straps. And then a little overlay…

Garden wedding in the Borders

beautiful Scottish garden wedding

From the minute we heard from Mary, we loved all her ideas of a wedding in the garden on the amazing estate called  The Haining near Selkirk. It looks absolutely stunning and they could provide all that the young couple wanted for their big day. Mary is a rare breed as the bride goes, as this is her first and only attempt at a wedding. She is so lucky, she didn’t swap and change the date and venue, and numbers many times over. This Bride is one of my own heart, a real outdoors girl who loves horses and dogs….

Beautiful Skye Wedding

Skye Wedding

Beautiful Skye Wedding in an amazing wedding dress on a sunny day. We loved making this wedding dress for Joanna. Like so many others her wedding could not take place in the original form. So instead they did a wonderful small family wedding on Skye with just the family there. The great news for me was that they had plenty of time for the photography as they didn’t have a big party to come back to, and the sun shone and made Isle of Skye look so amazing.  We absolutely love the photographs by Rosie at Love Skye Photography and…

Netherbyres House creative shoot

Netherbyres House creative shoot came from a lovely invitation. We had the offer to come and a creative shoot there, while the UK was still in lockdown. Luckily commercial shoots were still allowed to go ahead with all the guidance to be followed. Because of the limited numbers allowed, I didn’t go on the day to the shoot. I was really (nervous &) excited to see the images, as I had not been part of it. And I absolutely loved how it all looked. Thanks so much to Jasmin Bauer Photography for working really hard pulling it all together styling…

Weddings and weight loss

weddings and weightloss

Weight loss, my gift to myself 6 months ago, I suddenly realised I was going to be 50 in March. I was worried we could still not have parties due to covid. I felt 50 was a personal milestone and something I should celebrate for myself. I am not scared of turning 50, actually, I am very proud I made it. My best friend and my older sister did not make it to 40, so I think it is a privilege making it to 50. I started to think of what I wanted and realised all I wanted was to…
