The Dress

“Being a dressmaker, I always wanted to make my own wedding dress. I wanted something full length for the day, so I designed a tulle overskirt which could be removed during our first dance to reveal my lace party dress for the night. I introduced colour with a waistband made from the bridesmaid skirt fabric and added a giant bow at the back!”

The Ceremony

“An outdoor ceremony seemed like the perfect setting where our friends and family could relax, have some delicious food and drinks and play some lawn games. We used honeycomb balls to decorate our wedding arch, tassel garlands around the tables and lawn flamingos and games on the grass.”

Bridal Party Style

“I made the bridesmaids skirts and we found some gorgeous white crop tops to pair with them. We wanted a relaxed look for the groomsmen, so we bought chino pants, white shirts and pastel ties with polka dots to compliment the bridesmaids.”
