Rachel came to me with a beautiful original 1930s dress in a rich cream silk. She had fallen in love with the dress at a vintage wedding fair and although it wasn’t exactly what she wanted, it fitted like a dream and had oodles of potential. Rachel had the vision to see how the dress could be transformed into her dream dress. It was an exciting transformation involving a complete change of neckline both front and back, an extended train and a Chantilly lace overlay for the entire dress including pretty lace sleeves in place of much heavier satin. Rachel ended up with a very personal and unique gown with I’m sure she will treasure forever and who knows, perhaps it will go on to have further reincarnations!
Rachel and Graham got married in Surrey on 23rd July 2011.
