Married: Lucy + Adam
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. I helped her to refine her ideas into a definitive design, and select some gorgeous fabrics – an oyster coloured silk dupion and an ivory French lace which worked beautifully together.
Lucy’s silk dress was strapless with a gentle sweetheart curve, with a full-skirt supported by a bespoke petticoat. Over the top of the dress was a lace off-the-shoulder boat-necked top, which fastened up the back with a row of pearl buttons. Lace scallop edging was added to the hem of the silk dress, and a lace-covered silk sash was made to be worn around the waist, with the bow trails left long.
Lucy wanted the option to remove the lace top for the reception, so I sewed this in place by hand and gave her mum instructions on how to best remove it on the day when Lucy was ready.
Lucy and Adam were married in Sheffield at Kelham Island Museum, then took vintage double decker buses over to the super-minimal Millenium Galleries for their dinner and dancing, surrounded by friends and family, plus the biggest gathering of bridesmaids and groomsmen I’ve ever seen!
