Real Wedding: Relaxed Country Bride

Here’s lovely Poppy wearing her wedding dress. Poppy really is a country girl at heart – wellies, dogs, mud (she won’t mind me telling you that) and an easy and comfortable life. She wanted a dress that reflected that, and that she would feel easy and comfortable wearing. So soft, feminine, no boning and a small train that can easily be hitched up later on.

Poppy’s dress is a gentle A-line shape with a scoop neck and loose sleeves. It’s made from a heavy silk crepe with a soft lace overlay and soft satin hand-tied sash. I added some small pearls around the neckline and on the sleeves to give a small and gentle gleam. No fuss.
