Michelle and Martyn’s NYC elopement

We’ve known Michelle a few years. In fact she’s modeled for us on a couple of occasions over that time (here you can see the Sidhe shoot and the Wycollar shoot). And you could be forgiven for thinking these beautiful images are part of another styled shoot, but no, this is Michelle and Martyn’s real life wedding…

Michelle approached us right at the beginning of her wedding planning process. She had a firm idea of what she wanted her dress to be like and had started to book the other aspects of her wedding. We were so excited to hear all her ideas and to be involved. A few short weeks later, Michelle and Martyn decided to bring their wedding forward 6 months to elope to New York and get married in secret; and what a beautiful time they had, just them, their gorgeous family and their amazing photographer Teresa C Photography.

Michelle’s dress was unlike any we’ve made before; several layers of different laces all working together to build a beautiful deep texture, not only layered to create a unique lace of it’s own but several layers of the combination working together to create a multi-layered, vintage inspired and very full fishtail skirt and dramatic train – the final layers of which extended past the main train to show the detail of the texture. We also LOVE the high neck/deep V and off the shoulder combo along with the completely backless design. Oh and matching veil!
