Inspired by the timeless style, beauty and elegance of Grace Kelly, Anna chose a style that Grace often wore in the 1950’s, a fitted bodice, a nipped-in waist and a full skirt. A silhouette known as the “new look” made famous by Christian Dior, one of Grace’s favourite designers.
Anna chose a delicate French leavers lace over a structured bodice with a full skirt of sea-pearl silk chiffon edged with a matching lace border. The under layer of silk crepe satin was in a pale gold colour to compliment Anna’s porcelain skin tone and light features.
Anna wanted a waist length veil which was edged and hand sewn with the same lace border that was on the hem of the dress.
The finished outfit looks very classic and elegant, reminiscent of the fifties.
A romantic classic that will make every bride feel like a princess.
Thank you for designing and making the most beautiful wedding dress and veil for me. It was like a dream and so much fun to get to choose the lace and material, draw the dress out on paper, and see it come to life. The wedding was just incredible. We had such an amazing day and I received SO many compliments on my dress. I felt so happy and comfortable in it, it was just perfect. The veil was truly amazing too, I didn’t want to take it off. I could not have been happier with how it turned out, it really felt like “me”, so thank you so much. Anna
