  1. Amy's bridesmaids had very specific ideas about how their dresses should look, each wanted to be individual yet similar enough to look themed. After much discussion during the consultation Amy decided on a style of dress that suited all of her bridesmaids and then we set about making design changes to the neck lines of each one, with the bridesmaids being able to choose which style suited them best.

    Amy felt that the fabric should be the same for each dress but let her bridesmaids choose the colours of their silk sashes to add a personal touch!

    Many thanks to Amy for sharing her pics!

  2. Congratulations Stephanie & Hubby!


    Stephanie contacted me with a very specific design in mind - her dress was to have a pale grey skirt with an ivory bodice and overlay and should be the dress of her dreams!

    During the first consultation fabrics were looked at (and played with!) and we decided that the dress would look better with white fabric rather than ivory, and complimented her very sparkly shoes perfectly. Stephanie (and her mum!) decided on a v neck for the back of the bodice, finished with pure white satin binding around the neck and sleeves. The dress was finished with a white petticoat trimmed in grey satin and a shiny silver belt.


    Stephanie and Hubby held their ceremony at Hertford Castle in Hertfordshire, and looking at the pictures I've just received it looks like they had a beautiful day!

  3. Congratulations Yoko and Kai!

    Yoko chose our Dotty dress and had it customized with pretty little buttons down the centre back!

    After the dress was shipped off to Yoko in Australia imagine my surprise when I received the wedding photos to find out that Yoko and Kai had got married in the Netherlands! The ceremony was held in Leiden at De Regentenkamer, and it looks like they had a beautiful day!

  4. Jaclyn's bow travelled half way around the world for her wedding in Sydney, Australia!

    Jaclyn wanted a pre-tied bow attached to a belt to save any worries about getting the bow tied correctly on the big day, and chose to have it made in a beautiful hand woven silk in a champagne colour.
