There is a sweet story behind Beth originally making contact with me; I had made the wedding dresses of two of her best friends from school and each had recommended me!

Beth decided she wanted to wear a fairly simple wedding dress design. At our first meeting the initial design sketch included a cowl neckline and the top half of the dress was more boxy in shape. At her first toile fitting, Beth decided to keep the base shape of the dress and discard the cowl idea. We were left with the simple design you can now see. I think she made the right decision!

The full sleeves of the dress have one satin button on each tiny cuff. The only other detail is the satin buttons at the back of the dress. I love that this design is so pure and simple in concept, it really doesn’t need any extra details.

This dress perfectly illustrates that a bespoke design needn’t be too complex.

Huge congratulations to you both!
