Married: Ellie + Alex  April 24, 2017

Ellie was such a pleasure from start to finish. She’d been to plenty of wedding dress shops before she came to see me, and was feeling rather disenchanted – both by the process and the dresses she was presented with. Happily, she loved my Lilac dress immediately, and we agreed on a few changes to […]

Married: Phoebe + Arya  April 5, 2017

Phoebe lives in London and travelled up to see me after falling for my dresses online. At her first appointment she opted for my Peony separates and booked me immediately, but later reconsidered her choice, and we eventually settled on her bespoke separates. We used the repeated scallop lace from my Dahlia dress to create a […]

Married: Caroline + Sid  December 1, 2016

Caroline fell for my Dahlia dress right away, so much so that it was the only one she tried on and she booked me on the spot. What had begun so simply then got a lot more complicated, as Caroline found out she was (unexpectantly) pregnant. The wedding date was originally set for next April, […]

Married: Jodie + Dan  November 24, 2016

Jodie comes from Huddersfield, but she and her husband Dan both work as teachers over in the Seychelles. They were planning their wedding back here in England, and Jodie emailed last summer and arranged to see me while she was back home visiting family over Christmas. She was keen to get a dress sorted while […]

Married: Claire + Neil  November 16, 2016

Claire contacted me just five months before her wedding, after I was recommended to her by a collegue. She hooked me in from her first email with talk of her cliff top wedding in Cornwall, so I was powerless to resist her short deadline… Claire’s favourite gown was Larkspur, but she also loved the delicate […]

Married: Joanne + Luke  November 14, 2016

I first met Joanne when I was exhibiting at The Secret Vintage Wedding Fair in Manchester. I was part-way through making my Collection at the time, so didn’t have all my gowns with me, but Joanne liked the style of my dresses and got in touch a few months later to arrange an appointment at […]

Married: Sarah + Theo  October 20, 2016

I met Sarah at The Vintage Wedding Fair in Harrogate, where she fell madly in love with my Honeysuckle wedding dress and commissioned me to make her one on the spot. Sarah loved the way my sample dress fitted her – a slightly more relaxed fit on her than I’d made it previously – so […]

Married: Rachael + Rich  October 17, 2016

Rachael wore my Larkspur separates – the perfect choice for her laid back summer wedding. We agreed on a few design alterations to make them just right for her. I changed the skirt colour from pale pink to oyster silk-satin, a beautiful colour that has a metallic tone when it catches the light. For the […]

Married: Abby + Conor  October 13, 2016

Abby loved different elements of three of my Collection dresses, so we combined the bits she loved best to make something totally perfect for her. We used the silhouette of Dahlia, the flowing, panelled silk-satin skirt of Larkspur, and the lace of Lilac. Abby liked the slightly longer length of the original Lilac over-dress, so […]

Married: Joanna + Steven  September 9, 2016

Joanna was six months pregnant when she first got in touch, and was getting married a year later. We had originally planned for her to wear a bespoke version of my Camellia slip beneath the Larkspur skirt, but Joanna later decided she wanted to be a little more covered up, so we added a lace […]

Married: Christina + Graham  August 10, 2016

Christina loved the idea of a two-piece dress, and was keen to combine pattern and lace to create something uniquely hers. She loved the delicate geometric design of the lace I’d used for my Larkspur top, and so we set about trying to find a patterned silk that would complement it. Christina found lots of […]

Lucy had already decided on a 1950s-inspired tea length dress when she came to see me – the perfect choice for her petite, hourglass figure.

Lovely Alexe kept me on my toes throughout our time together.

So she pretty much had three dresses from start to finish… Alexe’s finished dress […]
