I know I bang on and on about how great a job I have and how amazing my brides are but sometimes I have a bride whose style and personality just work with my own and it is beyond fabulous to work with them.
I must send out a huge thank you to the most incredible Brisbane based wedding photographers, The Gehrmann‘s for suggesting to Marama to contact me to discuss creating her wedding dress. As a busy couple Marama & Don didn’t have much time to pull together their wedding and I must say it’s one of the most spectacular days I’ve ever seen so well done!
Marama was wanting a super stylish floor length lace wedding dress with a real 1930s style (but touches of the glamorous 1920s Gatsby style that we all love right now!). It was really important to her that although it looked elegant it also felt a little sexy and not old fashioned in any way. What we created together was one of the most gorgeous gowns I’ve ever been fortunate enough to create for a bride.
The gown had a dropped waist with a spaghetti strap under dress with v neck details made in a lovely soft silk crepe. Over the top was a relaxed chantilly lace bodice with extended capped sleeves and v neck. The skirt was figure hugging over the hips but then the skirt flared out to allow just the right amount of swoosh when she walked. One of my favourite details of her gown was the open back which had a delicate closure at the top and the lace bodice was open right down to the dropped waist allowing peeks of the crepe bodice underneath.
The waistband was finished with a beaded lace piece that was originally a hair accessory! When we had a play around in the studio we both realised it was the perfect addition to the gown.
Marama’s accessories were absolutely magnificent and spot on for the glamour of the gown.
