Designing my wedding dress!

Today has been a great day looking through my favourite fabric samples to select the perfect ones for my own wedding dress!

Over the years I have designed so many things to make wedding days special for brides all over the world from tiaras to jewellery, veils and wedding dresses – but now if feels different designing my own.

The fabric samples today have been easy to choose from – I love natural fabrics of silks and silk satins – and I have finally made some last minute alterations to the design of my dress.  It’s tempting to create with so many different types of styling as I am influenced by various design themes – but I found my way through to focusing on what are the most important aspects of my dress.

To see some of the design influences that I usually design with – see the pictures below. My own dress design will have to be revealed after the wedding, I have to have some surprises for my groom……

If any brides out there are struggling to decide upon a style of dress and are looking for some direction – I’ll be on hand to help at The National Wedding Shows at the NEC and Olympia in Spring and will also be attending some Designer Days at bridal boutiques that we supply over the coming year – watch this space – we will keep you posted!

        Sounds like fun – but yes I do know Claire so I don’t think you could easily be mistaken! They are both lovely to work with – we are hoping to have more shoots with them next year too 🙂
