A Handmade Wedding

posted in: Articles, Features | 0

A wedding is an extravaganza or beautiful things. You can completely indulge yourself in fabulous creations, dresses, jewellery, accessories etc. These can be made even more personal when you order something bespoke, something special to you.

I met a lovely designer on Twitter, Holly Stevens. Holly tells us about one of her beautiful pieces.

I love creating wedding wear that’s a little off the beaten bridal track. I designed, made and embroidered this wedding dress for a woodland wedding.

The bride and I worked together on moodboards, Pinterest boards and my sketches to incorporate styles and details she loved and eliminate those she didn’t. The original design had three-quarter length sleeves but they didn’t make it past the toile stage as they just didn’t work for her once they left the drawing board. I also experimented with different embroidery designs, styles and colours until we found one that worked perfectly for the bride and the dress.

I’m fully booked for the next three months but I’m accepting commissions for made-to-measure custom bridal wear from September. Prices start at £1,800.

There is also an enormous choice of handmade accessories available. Many of which you can speak to the designer and customise.
