 Back in February Kim our gorgeous friend got married and of course we made her dress.

We love getting the chance to photograph our customers outside their events where we can strip away everyone else and focus just on the beautiful woman and her dress. A couple of weeks ago we took a short walk to the Cathedral and photographed Kim in her dress. 
The styling was simple, I love big tousled hair and classic make up, Kim chose the perfect shade of Ruby Woo. We remembered to take photos during the original fittings and did a final few shots in our bridal room to create a great set of images.
Kim has a really strong sense of style and knew she wanted separates, sheer lace and a huge skirt. Together we designed the final dress and Anna worked on Kim's dress creating a perfect fit.

Kim's bodice was a ballet wrap design in French Chantilly lace, cropped at the waist with full length fitted sleeves and a plunging neckline. Kim totally got the idea of maintaining your style for your wedding, making sure you are you and not dressed up as a 'bride'.
The skirt was cut with a smooth front panel and full voluminous skirt. For dancing at the wedding Kim hitched her skirt up at the front to create a gorgeous graduated hemline which showed off her Nike's.

Kim's wrap top was worn with a bustier on the day and is a custom version of our Babette ballet wrap top. The skirt was custom designed and made for Kim. Prices from £800.
