Carli dreamed of tying the knot in a long, slimming dress. Self-conscious, she wanted to cover her collar bones without adding weight to the dress and consequently, to the wind-still, simmering summer heat that February is so famous for.

Her full length dress was fashioned from creamy-coloured corded Chantilly lace that was embellished with tiny pearls. A sweetheart bodice was extended with spotted tulle, covering her collar bones. For a touch of tradition, Carli sported a classic court train and veil.

This creation was both elegant and timeless – perfectly suited to the gracious and beautiful bride.
