Simple silk Crepe Wedding Dress and jacket was the brief from Sophie.
At our first meeting Sophie had a really good idea what she would like, so together we developed the ideas and chose the silk crepe for the simple dress and jacket. The silk had a sand-washed finished, so it was so soft, it felt like a peach. Sophie then chose a lace for the back detail of the dress.
Because the dress was so simple it was important with beautiful details such as little buttons down the back and on the sleeves.
We knew she needed some kind of detail on the dress, therefore we involved Janet at Rene Walrus. Janet made a beautiful piece to go on the jacket. A broach was cleverly designed it so Sophie could take it off with the jacket, and pin it on on the dress for the evening. Rene Walrus furthermore designed and made some stunning hair accessories, with that, it all went together beautifully.
Peter and Sophie had a church wedding, followed by a reception in the beautiful Principal George Hotel.
Karol Makula photographed the wedding beautifully, taking in some of Edinburgh’s beautiful sights.
A Royal Wedding Dress Surprise
Then, after the wedding, it was such a surprise to us that a couple of weeks after Sophie and Peter’s wedding. Meghan Markle and Prince William married. We couldn’t believe how close Sophie’s sophisticated choice of dress and jacket was to the choice of Meghan Markle. Both for the day look and the evening look.
