Going away outfits have gone!

Going away outfits have gone!

Whatever happened to going away outfits? No so many years ago the bride changed into a smart suit during the wedding celebrations and the newly weds were waved off on honeymoon by their guests. None of my recent brides have changed frocks but have continued partying until the end. Wedding dresses used to be so tricky to get in to (and more importantly, out of) the side fastening dresses of the 40’s particularly.  How much easier a smart suit was for one’s first night of passion!

Whatever happened to May?

Whatever happened to May?

Here we are at the end of May bank holiday weekend ( well almost). I have to wonder whatever happened to this merry month.

We did consider incorporating some black in… Continue Reading

I was asked to supply dresses and accessories again for Wealden Times and Surrey Homes magazines’ Wedding Feature ( August 2018). Photographer David Merewether has done a great job (again) and I’m hoping to get some more images from the shoot to use in the Gallery page. For now, here are  couple from the magazine.… Continue Reading

A wedding and a baby…

A wedding and a baby…

Real Green Dress bride Sophie said she felt gorgeous ( and she certainly looked gorgeous) on her wedding day. We had some fun with the alterations for her dress as after she had made all the wedding arrangements she discovered she was pregnant! So we let the dress out and then the baby arrived just… Continue Reading

Summer weddings

The year seems to be flying by and just when I should be getting down to creating more pieces for the Evolution collection I get more bridal enquiries. July used to be a quieter time for new bookings and a good time for dress fitting appointments. I think people are trying to set things in… Continue Reading
