Working together, we narrowed down the design to create a gown May absolutely loved. Featuring a perfectly tailored bodice of intricately beaded French lace, softly feminine removable sleeves draping off her shoulders, and volumes of delicate silk chiffon – May’s wedding dress quickly became one of my favourites!

We also created a cathedral length veil using matching French lace to perfectly match May’s dress as well as the removable sleeves worn for the ceremony and removed for the reception.

May also chose to complement her rose gold engagement ring (stunning!) with some exquisite rose gold embroidery hidden amongst the French lace. To do this I sourced a beautiful length of copper coated thread which was used extensively in gold work embroidery during the 15th, 16th and 17th Centuries.
