RowanJoy Brides June - Gail and Sam

Gail was one of my brides who was heading to sunnier and warmer climes to get married and she wanted a dress to reflect the relaxed vibes for her day. The dress style was lovely and easy for her to wear, a fitted bodice with draped beaded lace overlay and lace detailing on the waist, silk georgette and crepe were layered to create her soft loose skirt. The dress was finished off with a pearl button fastening to mirror the pearl detail in the lace. Gail also commissioned me to design and make her bridesmaid and flower girl dresses which were made in gorgeous soft green silks with appliqu├ęs  lace detail to coordinate with the lace on Gail's dress. 

Being a designer herself with her sequin-tastic fashion label Isolated Heroes, Sam had some really interesting and unusual ideas for her wedding dress. Initial inspiration came from Givenchy Couture for the silhouette of the dress and a combination of 2 different beaded laces along with silk georgette and silk organza along with an extra sprinkling of ostrich feathers was used to create a dress with loads of texture and detail. I love the final look of Sam's dress and think it shows that when you choose a bespoke wedding dress you can really push the boundaries with your design and have something really unusual whilst still being bridal.
