The design that Mandy chose has rapidly become one of my most popular dresses among my brides this year.  The sweetheart cross over neckline is incredibly flattering on all figures, and the lace overlay on the fitted midriff really nips in the waist and creates a gorgeous hourglass shape which is such a classic 50s/60s design.

Mandy’s dress was made from dupion silk with a very simple lace overlay on the bodice and also features fabric covered buttons at the back.  She chose not to have a traditional veil and commissioned a local milliner to create the most incredible bespoke hat with netting and feather detail to complement the simple design of her gown.

I absolutely love her bridesmaids polka dot dresses and the groomsmen wearing simple shirts, pants and ties with a cap.  When you have groomsmen who don’t normally wear suits and would feel and look uncomfortable in a suit it is lovely to just see them sharply dressed in something a little more casual and fitting of their personalities.
