This gold lace pale blue silk beaded wedding dress was designed for a bride whose Anglo-Indian fusion wedding took place at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.
Miriam had several elements she knew she wanted to include…..the gold and pale blue palette, a nod to the Edwardian era with a fitted bodice with caped sleeves, and some sort of feature back…..
This was the initial sketch, and was pretty close to the final design, we just decided at the toile fitting to make the back feature open rather than overlay it with lace, and added a hand made beaded tassel…..and we also added some extra length to the train for added drama.
Whilst the dress was on the mannequin I couldn’t resist trying it with the pale blue tulle and silk satin skirt from our ‘Portia’ range of bridal separates…..
And also with the Mitsou feather capelet/stole in ice blue……
I was so pleased when Miriam told me that my good friend and frequent collaborator Jacqui McSweeney would be the official wedding photographer….I knew she would capture marvellous images for Miriam and Tan, and it was so exciting to see the first sneak peeks on Jacqui’s business Facebook page the day after the wedding…..do click through to see more!
PS. We also arranged for Tan’s blue silk tie and pocket square to be made from the same silk as the gown by our tailor friend Oliver Hubbard.
