Silver Sixpence Custom Wedding Dress - Photography by Donegan Photography

Boy do I have some lovely brides!  One of my favourite brides for 2016 tied the knot recently and I must admit there were tears and hugs shared on the last day that I saw her as our time working together had come to an end.     Melbourne based bride, Jane, trepidatiously travelled up to visit me to chat about her custom bridal gown.  She knew that she wanted something different yet something very special and that a traditional… Read more »

Silver Sixpence Tea Length Wedding Dress - Photography by Emma Pointon

It’s so lovely working with brides from all over Australia!  I recently had the lucky job of creating a custom lace tea length wedding dress for a bride who was married over in Perth!  I know I say this a lot but I completely fell in love with her gown – and I just may copycat the design should I ever renew my vows in the future!! (sorry Leah!!) Leah recently shared some fabulous images of her wedding day captured… Read more »

Silver Sixpence polka dot tulle tea length wedding dress

I have a gorgeous real wedding to share with you today of a recent bride of mine on her big day! Bridget chose a custom tea length wedding dress which was inspired by my Polka Dot 1954 Oscars dress design however we added all-in-one capped sleeves to the overbodice and softened the neckline with a sweetheart neckline across the underbodice. I just love this fine polka dot tulle that I work with frequently on my bride’s gowns – it’s just… Read more »

Lace Tea Length Wedding Skirt

It is always a lovely little thrill when I hear that one of my brides has had their wedding featured on Polka Dot Bride!  I created Sarah’s lace tea length wedding skirt a while back and I’ve been curious to see her wedding images.   At the time of making her skirt she was pregnant with her new little bubba and her idea was to have a skirt created to fit her pre-pregnancy waist measurement and she would then team… Read more »

Kate's lace & polka dot tea length wedding dress - Jess Jackson Photography

It was such an absolute pleasure working with my recent bride, Kate, to create her lace and polka dot tea length wedding dress. When she came to visit Silver Sixpence she fell in love with the design of the Cherry Blossom gown but wanted to add a layer of lace over the top to soften it and give more of a romantic feel.  It was really important for her that the capped sleeves featured a delicate lace scallop and we… Read more »

Well they say a change is as good as a holiday, however I’m not too sure when the change involves moving – my least favourite thing to do ever! I am packing up all of my gowns and veils and will be moving premises over the next few weeks.  I do apologise for the inconvenience while I move premises.  The showroom will be closed from Saturday 14th November and will reopen on Thursday 27th November in our new location of… Read more »

Melbourne Spring Racing Fashion

Who doesn’t love the Melbourne Cup?!?!  Personally it’s my favourite day of the year because everyone (well almost everyone) makes that little bit more effort to dress up. This year I was out with my best friend as usual and decided on the new Silver Sixpence design “Bluebelle” with a matching blue fascinator.  Below is yours truly all frocked up on the right with a massive smile!   Not only is it a fun time to frock up in Hey Sara… Read more »

Silver Sixpence Floral tea length wedding dress

Between custom designs I’ve been busy working on a few new designs for my Silver Sixpence made to order collection.  Today I have some happy snaps of one of those new designs, Harriet.  This dress is a lovely option for brides wanting a unique wedding dress with a pastel pink floral organza overlay on the sleeveless bodice.  The tea length skirt features a half circle skirt with a layer of gathered silk organza over the top.. With the scoop neck… Read more »

Silver Sixpence tulle vintage inspired tea length wedding dress - Florido Weddings

Sometimes a simple gown is the most elegant and the design I recently created for Aneesa is absolutely one of those.  I just love the simple ivory dupion silk bodice with bateau neckline and slight capped sleeves.  The skirt was a tea length full circle skirt with layered tulle over the skirt to add some softness.  Such a stunning tea length wedding dress for brides who love an understated chic look. All too often brides when shopping for their wedding… Read more »

Silver Sixpence - Manelles 60s inspired short wedding dress

One of my lovely brides Manelle recently shared some very fun images of her recent wedding for us all to enjoy.  When I met with Manelle she fell in love with the bodice of Cherry Blossom but as she is so petite, the full floor length gown was just far too much for her.  We decided to go for a shorter knee length skirt and have it a little less full to ensure the balance was right. As her &… Read more »
