Chantelle wanted a playful yet traditional gown – a dress that would blend in effortlessly with the rustic barn motif of their wedding. She had envisioned her dream dress a sweetheart neckline, with lace and a dash of colour.

Chantelle has such a playfulness about her and I really wanted the dress to capture that spontaneous spirit. Her dress was a classic strapless A-line, extravagantly embellished with beaded lace. Accentuating her natural waistline a brushed pink chiffon loop encircled her waist. Fabricated flowers adorned the band, morphing into a merry ribbon. The back of the skirt was ruffled, with natural accents of tulle, lace, soft chiffon and silky satin.

Playful, yet traditional. Luxe and alluring. Who said a girl can’t have it all!
