This dress was a rather special one to create as it was my turn to be the bride!

From the beginning I always knew I wanted to design and make my own wedding dress! I stumbled across a beautiful spot embroidered silk organza and I instantly knew that I would have to use it. I've also always liked the idea of something to go from day to night, and so decided on a train with a high to low hem that tied round my waist in a bow so it could be removed later on in the day. There were a few personal touches I incorporated into my dress; I added a piece of fabric and lace from my mum’s wedding dress and embroidered the word ‘always’ so she would be with me on the day. As we had a bit of a blue theme, I also added a couple of blue buttons on my dress as my ‘something blue’.
