Once upon a time there was a lovely lady named Lida – a striking, stylish beauty! She was as gentle as a fawn, yet there lied an undeniable, compelling strength in her softness.

As with any love story for the ages, it requires a romantic backdrop. Their story was set in alla-Italia – the historically captivating country where Lida lived (and lives), met and fell in love with her personal Italian stallion, Stefano.

Now I might be a bit biased, but even more integral to an epic love story than the backdrop,  is the dress.

Her Audrey Hepburn inspired creation was made up of a bodice that was fashioned from blush pink mesh, with a bateau neck and elongated sleeves. Layers of Italian tulle in shades of nude pink, ivory, blush and white made up a whimsical skirt. The look was finished with a lingering blush pink veil, bordered with a gorgeous embroidered lace.

The lucky couple got to celebrate their union in all the lands (South Africa and Italy).

And of course, as all love stories go, they lived happily ever after.
