Some beautiful bridal separates from the new ‘Portia’ range. Shown here in Pale China Blue, but also available in classic ivory, and a choice of other custom tints such as Antique Ivory, Pale Mint Green, Wisteria and Blush.
These wonderfully romantic images of our ‘Galatea’ beach bride wedding dress were shot on film by multi-award winning destination-wedding specialists Archetype Studios.
I was lucky enough to meet them earlier in the year at a workshop in the South of France (organised by the fabulous Norwegian Wedding Blog), so was really thrilled to be invited to lend a gown for a bridal inspiration shoot they were organising, to take place in early August on the epic Oregon coast. Koby and Terilyn of Archetype, together with stylist Roxanne of The Foraged Fern, certainly know how to put a team together, and it was lovely to see how their vision bought the work of multiple bridal specialists together so perfectly…..
I hope you enjoy this dreamy coastal love story as much as I did.

The original silk satin ‘Bacall’ design can now be made in a beautiful soft floral French lace with a silk satin under layer. It has a fitted bodice with dramatic deep-V neckline, and pleated sleeves (in a choice of lengths) that give the style a slightly 1930s/1940s feel. It closes at the side with a row of silk covered buttons and rouleau loops.
At the start of November 2014 JFD was invited over to this beautiful city, the ‘Venice of the North’, as guests of Wedding Magazine (Russia) and the Four Seasons Lion Palace Hotel, to show a selection of bridal and evening looks from the 2014 collection, together with some of the latest 2015 pieces.
What an amazing time we had, all thanks to the St. Petersburg team of supremely talented creatives led by the marvellous Wedding and Event planner, Marina of Wed-Manager.
