December Brides

December Brides

I can’t believe it is December already, the year has flown past. It is turning out to be a busy month in the studio with lots of brides booking in appointments for 2019 and 2020 weddings. And 2020 sounds so far away but actually in wedding planning terms it is just around the corner! This time last year Merethe was in the studio and now here she is all married! Her photographer was Daniel Photography and the venue Goodwood Estates.

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.

Such a lot has been going on recently with my current brides that I haven’t had much chance to design and make new dresses for the Evolution collection. I did manage to put one together for this shoot with Hana Laurie the photographer ( who modelled too) and Amy from Dolly’s Beauty Parlour who also… Continue Reading

End of the show! West End Centre Aldershot

The Fully Fashioned Findings exhibition I have been working on this month is drawing to a close. I’ll be going over today to finish assembling the ‘grooms’ outfit.
