Clare's wedding dress

I love making wedding dresses, I simply love being a part of someone's big day.

Today I received photo's from Clare, who got married in February. Clare was one of those wonderful effervescent people and I looked forward to seeing her and her Mother for every fitting.

Clare had definite idea's of colour and basic design with the highlight of the decoration being a glorious gold, diamond and pearl brooch that had been in the family for generations.

Design by Chrissie Nicholson-Wild
Clare broke the wedding dress mould, by picking a vibrant green. This is only the second green wedding dress amongst the hundred or so wedding dresses I have designed and made (all totally different and unique I may add) and the colour suited her colouring perfectly. The corset  was to be starburst pleated, which took me a few hours to perfect and finished off with sparkly Swarovski crystal to match her fabulous crystal encrusted shoes. A fabulously full petticoat finished off the effect and must have been fun to whirl around on the dance floor.
