You know when someone describes their wedding to you and you get way too excited for your own good? Well that happened when Jo got in touch back in January. The more we talked about her ideas the more we knew we HAD to make dresses for her and her bridesmaids.
With just 7 months to the wedding and having already closed the order books for this summer we would normally have had to decline Jo’s request. However Jo’s ideas were really cool and we could already imagine how awesome her and her 5 bridesmaids would look. We knew we couldn’t turn the wedding down. Instead we pushed up our sleeves, worked longer hours and started the hunt for sewing room assistants (but that’s another story).
Fast forward 7 months and Jo and Gary are now Mr and Mrs Keane. You have no idea how excited we were to see a link to their wedding images in our inbox! Well, here you can see why. We’ve picked out a few to share with you here but you’re able to see more of Jo & Gary’s wedding via this link to Brendan Beelby Photography on Facebook
Jo Designed her own dress. The idea was already fully formed when she came to us; Ivory polka dot tulle wedding dress with 50’s vibe and hi-lo hem and train, amazing rainbow petticoat, blue sash, purple binding and straps, rainbow lace up and cute little pop-over jacket with rainbow buttons up the back.
I don’t mind telling you that Jo’s amazing petticoat is actually mark III – the first 2 versions just weren’t colourful enough, but I’m sure you’ll agree that the final result is EPIC in its colourfulness!
We also had a lot of fun creating Jo’s bridesmaid dresses: Amethyst duchess satin with accents of Royal, Jade, Yellow, Orange and Fuchsia. And how amazing do they look together with their matching petticoats and shoes!
And not to forget the blokes! We also made matching ties and pocket squares to bring everything together
But that’s not everything… you need to go check out the rest of Jo and Gary’s wedding to see their amazing decor and all those finishing touches!
We’ve had so much fun getting to know Jo and her girls and have LOVED being a part of the day and seeing these awesome images.
Thanks for getting in touch Jo
