Zibeline and Chantilly for beautiful Spring Wedding

Zibeline and Chantilly lace skirt, a beautiful combination for Ruth’s wedding dress Not many people nows of Zibeline fabric yet, so beautiful.

Green Spring Silk Lace Wedding Dress

What an excitement to get asked to make this green silk lace wedding dress for Maxine. Green silk and lace Wedding Dress When she came to see me she pretty much had her whole wedding organised, apart from her dress. Maxine had a vision in green, but nothing set in stone. She wanted colour texture and not the usual wedding dress, she wanted to be able to dance and move and and feel fab and flatter her shape. So with all of that taken into account, we looked at a lot of materials and green colours and vintage style laces….

Simple Silk Crepe Wedding Dress and Jacket

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…

Borthwick Castle Wedding

Stunning dress at Borthwick Castle Borthwick Castle is a beautiful venue, and so needed a beautiful dress. This beautiful bride came to me with ideas of nude-champagne colours, gold thread, beaded embellishments and silk mesh. This was altogether in a soft layered textured combination for her beautiful wedding dress. We absolutely love the results. I want to show you a little about how the dress was constructed. As it had many layers, we, therefore, had to make the dress in stages. We started with the silk base and then added the beaded lace over the skirt. Then on the dummy,…

Wedding at Dunblane Cathedral

Dunblane Cathedral Wedding Amanda’s wedding took place at the stunning Dunblane Cathedral. They had their wedding reception in the old church’s house and then went for an evening meal at  Cromlix.  She was a wonderful bride to work with, and her beautiful dress was full length with a high neck and long sleeves. It was made from silk crepe, and we hand embroidered the embellishment on the bodice. This, therefore, gave it a really elegant look; Amanda looked stunning on the day. Also, they had an old Volkswagen (courtesy of VW Affection) it was fantastic! Especially considering the care that has gone…

It had to be down to earth and incorporating the things I love; poetry, nature and my love of my family and my Somerset roots. As I wanted the whole day to be personal, small and from the heart, a lot was homemade. My whole family…

Nicaraguan and Scottish Wedding

Beautiful Nicaraguan and Scottish Wedding Natalia had so so many things organised for her absolutely epic barn wedding in Knockraich of Fintry. However, she didn’t have her dress organised – I think we started with only about 7 weeks to go. Natalia was hugely involved, she really has an eye for design and details. Natalia’s mum is from Nicaragua, the ideas and designs Natalia was going for had a real Latin feel to them. The venue was dressed from top to tail the day before by the bride and groom, their families and anyone who cared to help (which was…
