New Design – Nerine, dip dye tulle wedding dress

We LOVE all things dip dye. We have been experimenting with dye of late, discovering which dying techniques and fabrics bring out the most amazing textures and dying lace is just far too exciting! There are so many different types of lace and so many qualities of thread that you get the most amazing variations in colour. Nerine is a combination of our most thrilling discoveries; dip dyed lace with overlays of dip dyed tulle in various shades of raspberry. We just LOVE how the tulle softens the colours and creates the most gorgeous ombre effect *dreamy* Nerine was one of three dresses created for our collaborative Flower Fairies styled shoot that was recently featured on Whimisical Wonderland Weddings. We have looked at Erica in more detail already and Anise will follow shortly Accessories: We also love experimenting with accessories and created THE CUTEST lace hooded bolero and floral forehead jewellery. Well, we think the Bolero is too cute for words; a perfect alternative to the traditional veil The Shoot: As I mentioned previously, this shoot was featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings:… Credits of everyone involved are listed below – I wholeheartedly recommend everyone we worked with on this shoot Continue Reading →

Hipping Hall Winter style Part 1 featured on So You’re Getting Married

You know we love a styled shoot; it’s one of the best ways for us to see our designs come alive (other than at real weddings of course), so we were excited when Megan at Typical Type invited us to collaborate on this glamorous winter shoot at Hipping Hall. As we explored the idea of a winter shoot and the team came together it became obvious that there were 2 scenes we wanted to create. A warm and cosy ‘day’ style and a glamorous and elegant ‘night’ style. We were really excited to be working alongside the suppliers that Megan hand picked and we LOVE the collection of images that evolved; we know you will too… Day Lyra Wedding Dress and Altair Shoulder Jewellery Lyra and Altair are from our spring 2015 collection Lyra is a luxurious Duchess satin sweetheart gown, fully boned and nipping in at the waist. Frothy jagged layers of tulle flare out from underneath hand embellished lace appliqués and pearl strings. The dress has a modest chapel length train that flows when you walk. The tulle starts at the hips and billows out behind. We are so excited by Altair, our shoulder jewellery design. The lace Continue Reading →

Winter Weddings at Hipping Hall part 2 featured on So You’re Getting Married

Here is the second part of our styled shoot at Hipping Hall. You can see the first part, all about the day style here. Now we are all about… Night Ara, crystal chain backless wedding dress Ara is simply breathtaking! We cannot describe how beautiful this dress really is (the fact that our model now wants us to make an evening dress version is testament to how great this dress will make you feel). The heavy and sumptuous satin is cut on the bias to skim over your hips and pool around your feet and feels absolutely amazing when you walk. The dress is encrusted with a combination of claw diamante in various sizes and given that rock edge by combining with spikes (although these don’t have to be incorporated into your design). The diamanté chains are wrapped around your silhouette in such a way as to flatter your lines and give the most stunning detail on the deeply cut away back.
