Vicky and John’s Boho Stydd Garden Wedding

Vicky has to be one of the most fun loving and laid back brides that we have ever had the pleasure to work with and these wedding pictures by Foxley Photography really show the laughter and fun of Vicky and John’s wedding day. Vicky’s bohemian dream wedding dress looks absolutely amazing on her; completely backless, barely there bodice and full length lace skirt with cut away lining… we really LOVE how Vicky’s dress came together and I’m going to share a little bit of the process with you here as I feel it will help some of you reading this. There really are no limits. If you can imagine it, we can make it. However that in itself can be daunting. There is a confidence in knowing exactly what you want and being able to describe it down to a ‘T’ but what if you have a bundle of ideas or just know how you want it to make you feel? Well we can help there too. ANYTHING is possible and you don’t have to have a fully formed idea of exactly what you want before coming to us. Vicky knew the aesthetic she was looking for but was struggling Continue Reading →

Ellen and Alex’s ELfestivAL Wedding

The first real wedding we are going to share in 2017 is the awesome wedding of wedding planner Ellen to her husband Alex that was recently featured on Festival Brides… With a love for music and all things Mexican, Ellen and Alex created the most amazing ELfestivAL… you just have to check out all the amazing detail on the Festival Brides blog.   As for her dress, Ellen had a clear idea of her perfect dress, right down to the type of lace she was looking for, and try as she might she simply couldn’t find it. So what does a wedding planner do in times of need? She reaches out to her friends in the industry for recommendations for bridal designers that could create what she was looking for. We were humbled to discover that we came highly recommended by more than a few businesses and more than pleased Ellen was willing to make the 4 hour round trip for her dress fittings. Being the creative soul that she is she really let her sense of style and individuality shine through. Our favourite bit? the gold veil by HF couture. I mean, a gold veil! Here is a closer Continue Reading →

Winter wedding inspiration

Winter weddings are magical. There’s something about the crisp sunlight and long drawn in nights that makes for an enchanting atmosphere. It’s the perfect opportunity to light up your wedding with candles, sequins and all things that glitter. We are LOVING seeing the beautiful wintry weddings popping up in our Instagram and Facebook news feeds and couldn’t help but be inspired to share this glistening ensemble. Ara is almost effortless in it’s beauty but oh so chic. We love the simplicity of the backless satin gown with the art deco inspired crystal drapes… have you seen that back? We teamed this up with our new feather cape; what feels like a million pure white goose feathers were individually placed alongside hand finished crystal braided swirls on the neckline and hand finished with an amazing Italian tulle chapel length train. These images are from a shoot we did with Bridal Chic in the City and we will be sharing the full blog post early in the New Year. (Follow the link to Bridal Chic to see more now or look to the credits at the end of this post.) Winter Wedding Inspiration: We have the perfect wintry wedding board over on Continue Reading →

Victoria + Paul; a tweed wedding for our competition winners

We love Victoria and Paul. If ever there was a couple so utterly made for each other then surely they are it. So before we get into blogging about Victoria and Paul’s wedding and how much we loved being a part of it we need to tell you that Victoria and Paul were the winners of ZT Photography’s competition that was run earlier in the year. We were very privileged to be able to host a competition where one of our brides (for Legend brides are absolutely the best brides ever) won their wedding photography… yes… won their wedding photography! What an epic prize! Needless to say, all the images included in this post are courtesy of ZT Photography, and to say that just 4 weeks before their wedding Victoria & Paul had to change all their plans, I think their wedding was AMAZING. (It’s also the reason we were honoured to be able to offer Victoria and Paul get ready at our little shop before the short walk to the registry office). Victoria and Paul… We very rarely get to meet our grooms, in fact in the hundreds of brides we’ve helped get ready for their wedding (and thinking Continue Reading →

October round up

I feel like I’m always banging on about how busy we are but seriously, where did October go? There’s no guessing it’s my favourite time of year. The evenings are drawing in and Autumn is taking hold in all it’s fiery glory. October also brings my favourite holiday and a chance to get all spooky. So how is it that it’s already November? Well, the thing is, the wedding season may have calmed down but WE certainly have not let up the pace. We have so may exciting things happening behind the scenes that we CANNOT wait to share with you… SO many things! Unfortunately we’ve got to keep them under wraps for just a little bit longer but I’m sure you’ll be just as excited as us when we get to share our news. It does mean however that the blogs that I had planned for the last couple of weeks didn’t happen (don’t worry, they’ll see the light of day soon) but I didn’t want October to pass by without celebrating it, so here are some of my favourite features from around the web that I hope you’ll LOVE as much as I do. First up, our very Continue Reading →

These dip-dye details ensure your heart will soar

Do you think Gwen Stephanie knew what kind of waves she would create in the wedding world when she married Gavin Rossdale back in 2002? Or that her wedding dress would be described as iconic and exhibited in the V&A? That dip-dyed John Galliano wedding dress is still stealing hearts and its a trend that is only now really starting to make it’s way into popularity. We are seeing more and more incredible dip dyed wedding dresses and LOVE how easy it is to infuse your day with your personality without deviating too far from tradition. Here is Nerine, our dip dyed lace and tulle dress as modeled by Betty on our shoot with Tiree Dawson Photography. The shoot was featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings and Coco Wedding Venues and the full shoot can be found here: It’s becoming quite an obsession. I love how unique and creative every dress can be and how versatile the idea is. We’ve created a few dip-dyed wedding dresses now  and the idea can be taken so much further when you’re having your dress made, so here are some ideas of how you can use the dip-dye or ombre effect in your own wedding: Continue Reading →
