It was easy to decide which of our beautiful real brides to share with you today. It just happens to be the anniversary of Nija and Jonti.
Nija +Jonti are one of our most spontaneous couples. On getting engaged they set the date for in just 6 weeks time, quite a challenge, but oh my word they pulled it off! In that first week of wedding planning Nija had seen one of our brides featured on Rock n Roll Bride, eagerly hotfooted it over to our website and instantly fell in love with our Rockabilly wedding dress with swallow tattoos and heart peom embroidery. With just 5 weeks left to the wedding date we set about customising our design for Nija.
We LOVE Nija’s dress, 50’s rockabilly pinup style wedding dress in Ivory satin with Kingfisher blue waistband, asymmetric neckline with Swallow Tattoo embroidery and full circle skirt with more swallows, nautical stars and the Romance by Edgar Allan Poe embroidered in a heart shape. Nija also had the most glorious cornflower blue and plum petticoats and metallic plum shoes to die for. We also made Jonti a matching tie
Romance, who loves to nod and sing,With drowsy head and folded wing,Among the green leaves as they shakeFar down within some shadowy lake,To me a painted paroquetHath been—a most familiar bird—Taught me my alphabet to say—To lisp my very earliest wordWhile in the wild wood I did lie,A child—with a most knowing eye.Of late, eternal Condor yearsSo shake the very Heaven on highWith tumult as they thunder by,I have no time for idle caresThrough gazing on the unquiet sky.And when an hour with calmer wingsIts down upon my spirit flings—That little time with lyre and rhymeTo while away—forbidden things!My heart would feel to be a crimeUnless it trembled with the strings.By Edgar Allan Poe
