Wedding Dresses

Lots and Lots of folds in purple and a little bit of green

Robyn wanted colour, folds and lots of fabrics and lots of drama for her wedding dress. And that’s what she got!
We used Pure Douppion silk from James Hare Silks, which is a company we buy lots and lots of silk from, we are proud to say they conscientiously source their materials in Asia. The colour is really unusual as it is purple shot with green. We had lots and lots of purple netting and some very lightweight bremsilk lining…in… purple.

The dress was constructed with a “plain’ish” skirt, with a big netting underskirt with a hoop, then we had Edwardian drapes over the skirt, which created a large train which could bustle up for evening reception. Then there was a bodice on top of the bustle, which was very structured with lots of heavy interfacing and lots and lots of boning, the back was loops which laced up, and had a modesty panel behind. The bandeau was created with ruched bias cut douppion silk. Despite all the seperate pieces it still was a one piece dress.

Robyn had very early booked her venue Royal Terrace Hotel, and planned so much detail about her wedding, how she would have her hair, and how her bridesmaids dresses were, flowers and lots of other thing. The amazing collar necklace was a gift from her bridesmaid, and i think it went very well, with the whole look. Everything turned out fab, colourful and dramatic, just like she wanted it. The gorgeous flowers were from Garlands in Leith the bridesmaids dresses were from Vivien of Holloway

Robyn was in the very fortunate posistion of having a Photographer in the family, here are her photographs taken by Julian Grant.

Fabulous colours, especially with the bridesmaids, and I love all the folds and pleats. Suits her perfectly!
