Modern Vintage Lace wedding dress

I love Laura’s wedding photographs, her smile cannot hide her happiness on her wedding day!

I met Laura only 5 weeks before her wedding date, after receiving an emergency email when she was unable to find a dress for her wedding. She knew exactly what she wanted, and her ideas were exactly what I love to create.

Modern, vintage boho styles were mixed, with  a high round-neckline, and fresh, flowing chiffon skirt, coupled with the winding organic patterns of the vintage lace.
We were really lucky because Laura was able to use some vintage and antique family lace, some of which was an applique from her mothers wedding dress too. (I say ‘we were lucky’, because it’s so interesting and exciting for me to see these treasures too!).
The floral lace vines climbed upwards from the hem, spilled from the waist onto the hips, and grew organically over the decollete. There were lots of different floral motifs, and once snipped into individual blossoms, and re-appliqued, a pretty lace garden was created.
