Rowanjoy Real Bride - Charlotte

Charlotte was one of my May brides and chose to have a completely bespoke dress made. Charlotte had a good idea of what she was looking for in her wedding dress after trying on a few different styles and knowing what she liked and suited her. The dress was a flared column style dress with a draped v-neck bodice at the front and back. Charlotte knew she wanted lace on the dress and it was lace love at first sight when she saw the bold, beaded pattern of the Constance lace. It had a really great defined scalloped edge which was used on the sleeves, a panel insert in the front and on the lace detailing on the hips.

I loved the finished dress on Charlotte and she looks utterly gorgeous in the photos of her wedding day. How brilliant is the first photo! Charlotte accessorised her dress with a lovely, twinkly hair vine from my studio mate Rene walrus and it works perfectly with the dress.

It was so lovely to get the email with Charlottes wedding day images and also with it a wonderful testimonial of the experience of getting her dress made (she made me cry) Getting feedback like that makes my job so amazing to do.

"I honestly cannot thank you enough for making one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen. I got so many compliments and people ask me all the time where I got my dress from, how much they loved they lace and how elegant it was. From the first moment we met I knew you would be the person to help guide me towards the type of wedding dress I actually wanted rather than trying on unflattering dresses in a shop and feeling very out of my comfort zone. You were like a warm hug and your patience, your skills and your amazing personality made me so excited to design and choose what I wanted at my own pace. You are an INCREDIBLE dress maker and general human being and I have been shouting your name from the rooftops to anyone that will hear how great you are. I'm so happy that I found you at the Glasgow wedding collective. You are a star. 

Ps you and Janet are the ultimate dream team and the nicest ladies I have ever had the fortune of meeting."

Thanks Charlotte, it was an absolute pleasure.
