Wilden Bride

Bride Becky is a Womenswear designer herself (working for one of my fave high street brands, no less), so to be asked to design her wedding dress, and be given so much trust in it's detail was wonderful! Becky had already chosen her shoes when we first met, a central piece - golden green satin court shoes with a chunky gold glitter heel (literally amazing!) I guess you could say that the pale sage green that we chose for the fabric of the dress was a it of a colour clash - but it was one of those good kinds of clash that I love to take part in! We looked at lots of vintage inspirations, we were wanting to do a modern take on something with a little bit of 1920′s style, and lots of beading! For the under bodice, I wanted to be quite daring with a very deep 'V' and an angular neckline, which would be overlaid with the softer boat neck of the slightly sheer, beaded georgette. It proved quite difficult to shape over the bust, but we cracked it in the end!
