December 9, 2016 Real Bride – Emma


Emma came to me just over three months before her wedding day after struggling to find a wedding dress in bridal shops that was not only unique, but that suited her body. During our initial consultation we designed a gown that reflected her personality and highlighted her favourite features.

Emma’s wedding dress featured beautiful French lace with delicate Swarovski pearl beading, silk covered buttons. and volumes of creamy bridal tulle. By using multiple types of tulle as well as cream coloured silk beneath the white lace, we created a depth to the various shades of white, which not only suited Emma’s theme and skin tone perfectly; but also highlighted the luxurious materials used.

Congratulations Emma and Grant; it was an honour to play such a special role in your big day!
