Amy loved Dahlia from the start, but added full length sheer lace sleeves to make into a gown that was perfect for her. At the last minute we also decided to switch the original square back to a deep V, which looked fantastic. Amy’s a vegan, so I suggested we lined her dress with a beautiful ivory faux silk, rather than the real silk I’d usually use.
Amy and James married at Solberge Hall in Northallerton. The weather was glorious and they were able to exchange their vows outside, in the garden pavilion. Their stunning portraits were taken out in the rapeseed fields nearby, and feature a gorgeous 1950s car – a French Panard – which has been lovingly restored after being in the family for three generations.
“Thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful gown you made for my wedding day. I felt incredible, and I have you to thank.
You had a way of making me feel special from the moment I walked into your studio. Your ability to make me feel at ease and make me laugh (along with being able to make the most beautiful wedding dress collection I had ever seen!) was one of the many reasons I chose you to make the perfect dress for my wedding day. Not only did I know that you would be able to make the dress of my dreams, but I also knew you would give me real advice, and help me figure out what I would want on our special day.”
