Rowanjoy real brides - Brides in pinks and blush

 As promised the second part of my brides in colour from this year and this time these are the brides that chose gorgeous pink and blush tones for their dresses.

Lisa first saw the Cecelia dress from my made to measure collection at one of the Wedding Collective fairs and as soon as she came in to the studio to try it on she knew it was the one for her. The dress was kept exactly as the original and lisa wore it with her sisters veil which had beautiful lace details which matched the blush tones of the silk beautifully, making it the perfect something borrowed.

You might have spotted Marianne on this blog already but I couldnt miss her and her bespoke version of the Grace dress out of the round up of the year.

Elaine was another one of my magnificent 7 from October and wow, her dress was a stunner. The dress shape itself was kept quite simple with an angled sweetheart neckline, low back and full gathered skirt, it was finished off with an illusion tulle neckline and sleeve with linear lace appliques. The main dress fabric was the most beautiful blush pink silk crepe which I think gives the dress such an extra wow feature. Elaine had seen Marianne's gold lace edge veil and knew that it would be the perfect to go with her dress so commissioned one as well. Isn't she gorgeous?

My final bride in this round up is also a pretty special bespoke commission, completely unique to the bride. Fiona's dress was inspired by the feel of 1920's style dresses and one of her main requests was to have elements of peacock feathers in the design. Handily my lace supplier has the most beautiful beaded lace with varying sizes of peacock feathers which I knew would be perfect on the dress. The design of the dress came quite organically with the shapes of the peacock feathers following the curves of the dress to create the most stunning hourglass shape. One of the main features of the dress was using one solitary feather applique on the back to create the illusion of a tattoo. Fiona chose a gorgeous oyster blush silk as the main dress fabric which really highlighted the shapes of the lace on the dress. I absolutely love this dress its so unusual and was a great joy to make.

I have one final bride getting married in pink this year but she isnt getting married until December 29th so unfortunately I cant share any pics, but here is a little sneak peak of the fabric and lace.
