Zibeline and Chantilly lace skirt, a beautiful combination for Ruth’s wedding dress
Not many people nows of Zibeline fabric yet, so beautiful. It is very heavy and textured and makes a lovely contrast to the very fine and delicate Chantilly lace. Ruth chooses to have a bespoke wedding made by us. She decided that after meetings with discussions about the designs and materials. Ruth tried our collection dresses on and used them as inspiration. Ruth liked experimenting with skirt shapes and styles. The bride’s Mum and sister came to all the fittings. It was a really fun process, where everybody had an input.
The zibeline wedding dress has a lovely Chantilly lace overlay on the bodice along, as well as scalloped lace edges on the neckline. Furthermore, we added long elegant sleeves to the dress. Significantly, we worked on the back is a statement, we added a covered button detail decorated the back of the dress. We added buttons and loops on the back of the dress created in the dress fabric. The edges of the dress we enhanced with eye-lashed scallop lace edges hence creating soft wispy details. This is probably the most elegant finish we can make on lace as well as time-consuming.
A lovely dramatic train created the back of Ruth’s wedding dress. Because Ruth really wanted to dance at the reception, the train loops up at the back with an internal bustle.
Beautiful floral decorations were arranged by Amy Annand. Because it was early spring, Ruth chose anemone’s and ranunculus and other spring flowers for her bouquet.
We loved it, even more, when we heard our friends Blue Sky Photography was to capturing the day. Turns out, they are good friends of the bride and her family too. What a small world!
