Married: Michelle + Adam

Blog - Michelle

Michelle had a very clear idea of the dress she wanted when she came to me – a 1950s inspired, V necked dress with a tea length skirt. The one big decision still to be made was fabric, as Michelle was keen to have a wedding dress with colour or pattern and flirted with various options, including burnt orange silk, bold red floral crepe de chine and ditsy floral Liberty print. Eventually she settled on an ivory silk dupion embroidered with delicate cream and pale brown flowers and leaves.

The top of Michelle’s dress was ruched to add texture and the skirt kicked out from the waist and was supported by a custom made petticoat with ivory satin bound hems, sourced from Petticoats A Plenty. We added a brown silk sash and bow to accentuate Michelle’s waist and add detail.

Michelle’s heavenly Chie Mihara shoes (which I confess to suffering serious shoe envy over…) and handmade floral headpiece and birdcage veil finished her dress off perfectly.

Michelle married her partner Adam at The Ashes in Endon – a beautiful barn venue in Staffordshire surrounded by rolling countryside. Michelle was ably assisted by family and friends in creating lots of amazing crafty details to personalise the venue – flowers made from crocheted wool and ribbon, painted tea light holders, cycling-inspired table centrepieces and reams and reams of colourful bunting. Michelle’s mum made their bright and beautiful wedding cake which looked fantastic!

Michelle made my day yesterday by delivering an incredible hand crocheted cardigan she’d made for my soon to be born baby – its so very beautiful! Thank you millions Michelle!
