'From plants that wake when others sleep, from timid jasmine buds that keep their odour themselves all day, but when the sunlight dies away let the delicious secret out to every breeze that roams about’. Thomas Moore
Glamorous Italian Castle Wedding Spectacular
Sarah travelled all the way from Texas USA for her bespoke wedding dress and veil. The dress was a mix of modern and classic - perfectly suited to the venue - Castello Di Vincigliata in Florence, Italy. A glamorous castle with romantic ruins plunged deep among the Tuscan hills. Sarah loved the idea of silver lace with an antique quality. I made the unique dramatic shoulder and back embellishment with an intertwined mix of guipure lace leaves and crystal motifs. The shoulder embellishment created a beautiful wing-like cap sleeve. The dress was made from a luxurious soft draped crepe. A simple clean silhouette with a princess seamed top, which then glided over the hips, flaring out at the hem, with a sexy, yet demure, centre front split. Small lightly beaded lace flowers highlighted the side of the waist, to give a little touch of detail to the front of the dress, however the main focus was all about the plunge v-back. Hints of Swarovski sparkle were added to capture the late afternoon sun and evening candlelight. Truly magical.
