Rowanjoy Winter Brides - Jennifer, Sue and Jackie

I have been very bad at keeping up to date with the blog recently (its always the same new years resolution that never gets kept, blog more regularly) And I just realised I have some gorgeous brides from the end of last year who I havent written about so thought i would do a post of them all together.

Sue got married in November last year and had chosen to have a completely bespoke dress. The main feature of the dress was the fabulous, full organza skirt with beaded lace peplum. The lace continued up into the fitted bodice which had a boatneck front with keyhole detail at the back. Sue's dress was so much fun to make, going for a bespoke dress is always a step into the unknown for a bride as they never truly see how their dress is going to look until about half way through the process, but Sue completely embraced this and loved seeing how her dress developed. She looks absolutely beautiful in her dress and so happy on her wedding day.


Jennifer chose for her dress one of the made to measure styles from the collection, the Grace. She absolutely loved the style as it was so we made no changes to the design. The style really suited Jennifer's figure with the diagonal lines created by the seams complementing her height. I love the gorgeous red lipstick colour Jennifer chose and it really complements the vintage style of the dress, she looks gorgeous on a chilly Glasgow afternoon!


Jackie was my final bride of 2014 and travelled up from Newcastle to get her dress. She chose the Lucille style from the made to measure collection and as soon as she told me she wanted some colour on the dress (a gorgeous plum lace) I couldnt wait to get started. We kept the shape of the dress the same as the original but changed the sleeve to an elbow length style and added a panel of the plum lace across the V. I absolutely love the addition of colour on Jackie's dress and am always up for some colour for wedding dresses (I got in married in green myself)and love how it ties in with her bridesmaids.
