When Stacey first came to see me she was torn between two dresses she’d seen elsewhere, so we combined her favourite elements from each to create something uniquely hers.
Stacey loved the gold silk and ivory lace tiered skirt of my Honeysuckle dress, but wanted a version that was less fussy. I combined polka dot tulle and a lace scallop edge to make three more simple tiers, and added a pointed train for added back impact. The top had a gentle V neck at front and back, fitted snugly across the body to the empire waistline, and more delicate lace trim added detail around the straps and neckline. The waist was accentuated with grosgrain ribbon.
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making my beautiful wedding dress. As you know I really struggled to find a shop dress I felt comfortable in but being able to work with you to design my own was the perfect solution. I can’t thank you enough for your time, effort and creativity in helping me have the dress of my dreams. The patience you showed me in the weeks leading up to the wedding was fantastic and I appreciate the amount of hours you spent working on the dress, especially hand-sewing the scalloped edge onto the tulle!
I really did feel amazing in my dress and it really suited the feel of the day. I received so many lovely comments from all the guests and Will thought I was the most beautiful bride – not that he’s biased at all!”
