Boho Bride London

Fabulous Boho Bride.The wedding took place at the Asylum Chapel in Shoreditch. Such an iconic venue. The bride wore the ever popular French Lace overlay dress

Florence. Florence was worn over a subtle coloured silk bias slip dress as separates.Both the lace overlay dress and the silk bias slip are made of the most fabulous quality fabrics. The simplicity of the dress is balanced by the quality silks and laces shining through.

he Florence design has been styled here in a the loveliest Boho way. The beauty and simplicity of this modern lace dress is that it can be styled in a more traditional way. I love how natural these images are. Relaxed and comfortable with happiness glowing in the couples faces.

I could gush about the venue all day. Shabby Chic with a beauty so unique. I love the faded grandure and the pops of colour on the walls. The Asylum Chapel is a truly magical place to get married in London.

I think that the brides choice of dress suits this venue perfectly. The Florence dress and the long veil with matching lace trim are both incredibly soft to the touch. Florence has been so popular. The design although a slim shape is super flattering. So long as the dress and bias cut heavy silk slip  flows over the body it just looks perfect.

I make each dress to your shape so I can ensure the best  and most flattering fit.The dresses do not go through the alteration process that most need. As the dress is made to your measurements and fitted before it is finished there is no need to ever have to unpick and alter. As I make the dresses myself ( with a little help at really busy times) I can offer you the choice of adapting your chosen design. I can add a longer sleeve or a lower back or even a higher back to your design for example. Adding that little bit of choice helps brides create their ideal dress

Glasgow Boho Wedding

This fabulous Glasgow wedding took place at the Brides University. Such an amazing setting so dramatic. Photography by www. struvephotography.co.uk I just love the intimate quality of the pictures.

Rebecca wore the Eloise design. This dress is in the palest of Blush silk with an Ivory Silk tulle skirt and an Ivory French Lace on the bodice. We customised the back to a deep plunging style.

I also created the lace edged veil seen here. Using a matching lace trim to the lace on Rebeccas’ dress.

Modern boho wedding

This most heartfelt and sincere wedding celebration took place in rural Norfolk. The bride wore my Eloise design. A simple modern boho wedding dress. This wedding epitomises the term Homespun and rustic. A real family affair with all hands on deck getting ready. Tears and hugs and  laughter and celebration describe the day. There is something wonderful about getting married in the country. A modern boho wedding in rural Norfolk. When I was making this dress meeting for fittings were a thing of joy. Sometimes I get to meet the most happy smiley people full of joy and excitement as in this case. So ver happy and excited in anticipation of getting married and wearing a dress that is cherished itself.

Bespoke Wedding Dress

Bespoke wedding dress.These fabulous and rich pictures were captured by the amazing Lina and Tom . The wedding had a Midsummer night dream theme captured in all of the gorgeous detail.

Natalie wore a semi bespoke gown in a deep cream colour with French Lace embellishment and a tulle skirt. The fabulous rich cream colour simply looked fabulous and suited the brides complection perfectly. We decided on a silk crepe backed satin. This was overlaid with a full circle of tulle. Natalie wanted a floaty elbow length sleev which was made in a French Calais lace as was the dress bodice. The skirt was embellished with applique cut outs of the french lace. The lace trailed downward from the waist adding an individual and unique element to the design.

 

London Boho Bride wedding

A beautiful London Boho bride wedding took place in Chelsea Town Hall then over to Notting Hill with a lovely quiet and intimate pit stop in Hyde Park. You can see more of this  wedding over on www.lovemydress.net/blog/2017/10/dana-bolton-fuss-free-intimate-colourful-portobello-docks-wedding.html

I simply adore this wedding so much. Not only was the bride an absolute dream to work with she also looked pretty amazing in her dress.

This dress was a semi bespoke request . adding a longer sleeve and an alternative silk for the skirt and using Ivory instead of Oyster colour-way of the Mercy design.

This has now become a firm favourite in my collection and is called the Marianne design!

Mercy design for bride and bump.

This has to be one of my favourite all time weddings. Flavie was pregnant on her wedding day with her second child. I absolutely love the challenge of making a dress for brides with bumps, the challenge and the extra special relationship makes it all the more magical. Flavie has all the style and relaxed sophistication we expect of the French. The design was the Mercy dress just worn a little higher at the waist at the front of the dress. Wedding in the south of France.
