I love a good wedding- especially the dress. Unfortunately I don't have a fabulous picture of it - because while we were at the beautiful Point Nepean, the weather was not so beautiful. The ceremony was planned for outside, but it looked like the bride was to make her entrance on a white slip and slide (there was muddy plastic over the carpet) We moved inside the clear marquee for a beautiful ceremony accompanied by the pitter of constant rain. Here is our lovely bride and groom. (He is in a black suit with white tie) She is in an exquisite ivory/cream gown. It is Christian Lacriox embossed brocade fabric with the brocade detail picked out with beading over the bust.
The bridesmaides had beautiful navy stretch satin dresses with lovely subtle frill detail to one side of the neckline and also at the rear hem. They were cocktail length as the dresscode was cocktail.
Here is a better (but certainly not ideal) shot of the happy couple. The bodice is kept simple to highlight the frill which starts from a cream satin waistband on one hip and wraps around the skirt to the puddle train which you cant see. Love the satin peep toe shoes,
Here is a rear view - I love the ribbon edging on the veil which sat beautifully with the frills on the skirt. The dress was a Judith Valente design.
I managed to frock up too. My dress is a caranek sil with bust detail and a full bias skirt from the empire line. The bolero was from Jacqui E about 4 years ago. This dress was a rejected 'client' bridesmade dress (we had to make another one) and made mum and I call an end to that 'career'. However I came upon this dress it has had a few outings since. Oh and we can't forget the beautiful flowergirl in her Angelina Baccini dress.
