When Ali came to visit me, she knew exactly what she wanted.  She wanted, simple and elegant.  Despite the hundreds of laces samples i showed her, she was dead set on the first one i showed her, the Maria lace.  A beautiful clean and not fussy lace with fine metallic thread running through to add a slight and subtle bit of sparkle.  I love the back detail on the dress, a row of covered buttons, which you can see her head bridesmaid patiently fastening.

Nicki's Champagne Wedding Dress


Nicki's beautiful wedding dress reminds me of a elegant class of champagne.  Not only is the fabric a soft flowing luscious satin the colour of champagne, the soft elegant curves of the dress, like a champagne glass and the sparkly lace bodice .... like the bubbles leaping from the class of freshly poured chilled glass. 

Here are the design sketches i drew up for Nicki after we had our first meeting.  She went for design G




I love the lace Nicki chose,  the beading is equisit.  Just the right amount of sparkle to finish off the dress.


A massive thank you to Nicki for sending in these images of her big day in Florida!




I love the shape of the skirt, very fitted down to the knees and kicks out to a fishtail, with a subtle train at the back.

Fiona's Blush Pink Silk Wedding Dress


I made Fiona's wedding dress earlier this year.  It was a beautiful subtle blush pink silk with a dainty jewelled lace over lay on the bodice.

Initial sketch i drew in our consultation

Final Design
Fiona visited me in my studio, at the beginning of last year.  We discussed designs and looked at different fabric and lace combinations.  Fiona fell in love with the soft blush silk instantly!


She told me she was complimented endlessly on the big day for the beautiful colour of her wedding dress.


"I can honestly say I felt spectacularly elegant in it! It was absolutely perfect and so many people commented on the colour! So a big thank you for all your hard work on it."


One of my favourite features of the dress was the covered button back. I hand covered each button and sew it on by hand, it certainly was a labour of love!

 


A big thank you to Fiona for sending in these images from her big day!  Photography by Adam Cash Photography.
