Real Bride Shelley choose a bespoke corset and skirt design (now called 'Francesca') in pale gold taupe regal dupion silk. The corset features a 'double back' with pale ivory ribbons to tie up. The fabric has been slightly ruched on the corset to give a random texture and the skirt is bustled up at different levels.
Real Bride Sammie choose a corset and skirt version of my 'Braveheart' design - in Inca Gold dupion silk - with my 'Bramble' tiara in gold finished wire. We added some tiny light topaz swarovski crystals (for a tiny bit of bling) threaded through the tiara on a vine of their own!
VARIATIONS ON MY 'SYLVANA' CIRCLET - (Circlets are now available as Hairvines and matching pins!)
(LEFT PIC) Real Bride Judith choose to have a bespoke headress made - my 'Sylvana' Circlet with leaves in shades of burnished gold and a coppery bronze. (MIDDLE PIC) Real Bride Maxine choose red and gold as her colours. (RIGHT PICS) Real Bride Bernadette wanted a hairvine version of 'Sylvana' to match her dress and asked for silver leaves (I used 2 shades of silver) with amerthyst and small swarovski plain crystal ab.
Real Bride Rebecca B choose a bespoke design - the corset and embroidery was based on another real bride's (Natalie) outfit. We added the straps to the corset and medieval sleeves in red silk georgette, with deep red skirt. The embroidery was of trailing leaves and tiny flowers - based on medieval illustrations in Book Of Hours - all worked by hand in silk thread stranded down to a single thread - very delicate and I loved working it!
Real Bride Natalie choose a bespoke corset and skirt for her wedding dress. A gorgeous venue of an arts and crafts church with wall paintings inside of trailing leaves and flowers inspired her invites and my embroidery! (This also inspired real bride Rebecca B). The pale gold skirt was coverd in swathes of silk tulle - light and fairylike - and the detatchable sleeves - again of silk tulle - had a heading of red beads to complement the corset. Natalie also asked me to make a silk tulle veil - so that she could wear it covering her face as she entered the church. I made the bridesmaid dress in the pale gold silk dupion to match.
Real Bride Julie R choose my 'Braveheart' dress in deep red/black dupion silk with split cuff detail and handmade covered buttons to match. For a pre-raplalite inspired look she choose gorgeous dark coloured flowers and lots of ivy!
Real Bride Lynsay choose a bespoke design of a dress, with Ancient Davidson Tartan bodice and 2 layer skirt. The bodice was laced up at the back with black ribbons and hand embroidered with a celtic knotwork design. The bottom skirt was a deep red taffetta and the upper skirt a green/red silk dupion swagged up with 2 handmade flowers in black and red tafetta. I made a cloak in the tartan silk to complete her look (the cloak is available for hire from the studio). I made a tiara specially for her in gold finished wire and green crystals - sorry there isn't a detail pic of this!!
