Summer bride

Here’s Nisha, the summer bride in the title.

Nisha is very petite and didn’t want a dress to swamp her; she knew she would have a bespoke design and have it made for her. We went for quite a simple slim silk Dupion dress in ivory, with a pretty, twinkly lace overlay.

The dress has a seam under the bust (empire line) which is really useful if you’re petite, as it draws the eye upward and gives the impression of a longer waist and legs.

The lace is an ivory base with ‘latte’ high-lights within it.

Nisha’s pictures were taken by photographer John Harris. I’ve mentioned him before – he really is very good. As I was looking at the photos I realised I was welling up; he really knows how to capture emotional moments perfectly. If you’re a sentimental sort, best get some tissues handy for the next couple of shots!
