If you are a bride to be or civil partner to be, with ideas about wearing a dress in a non-traditional colour, then I hope these beautiful images of Sophie in her bespoke blue satin wedding dress will help to inspire you!

Sophie and partner Michael celebrated their civil partnership last summer ’21 at Island Hall. I was so excited to receive these images of her blue wedding dress, they are truly stunning.

Sophie contacted me knowing she didn’t want a traditional wedding dress, and with some images of Keira Knightly in that green dress from the film Atonement. Not wanting exactly that, but the relaxed and 1930s retro vibe of that dress – and in a different colour, together we came up with this dress.

Sophie brought her own ideas to the design, including a vintage buckle she found which we used on the back of the dress, and another for her hair, which was created by BecksThairapy.

The dress was made in a peacock blue silk satin with matching silk chiffon drapes, ties and ruching.

Huge congratulations to you both! Xxx
