Wedding Dresses

Elizabeth and Bruce at Dundas Castle

Elizabeth and Bruce got married at Dundas Castle on the 1st April 2012. Liz gave us a bit of a surprise when she came to see us to have her dress made. She was pregnant, and would be 22 weeks gone by the time of the wedding. We were very excited for the challenge of her dress and Liz had lots of initial ideas which made the design stage much easier.
At first, I thought a lot about how Liz’s bodyshape would change quite quickly over the months leading to the wedding and how this would affect the fit of the dress.I decided the best idea would be to start making her dress 5 weeks before the wedding date leaving it as late as we possibly could but it turned out that I had nothing to worry about as Liz was training hard with her personal trainer Sally Scott at Virgin Active and the results were incredible!
Liz looked gorgeous in her beaded empire line dress which was made from a slinky silk satin with a deep v at the front and buttons down the back. The bodice was pleated which flattered her shape perfectly (not that she needed it!). Liz teamed her dress with a simple hairpiece which gave her a very elegant look.Liz’s hair was styled by Princess Cut Bridal Hair. She carried a dusky pink colour scheme through from her beautiful bridesmaids to her fabulous flowers by Planet Flowers.

Liz’s perfect day was captured by photographer Cate Gillon and as you can see, no baby bump in sight! Big thank you to Cate and Liz for letting us feature this stunning wedding.
