Chantelle wanted a playful yet traditional gown – a dress that would blend in effortlessly with the rustic barn motif of their wedding. She had dreamed of a dress with a sweetheart neckline, lace and a dash of colour.
Chantelle has such a playfulness about her and I really wanted the dress to capture her spontaneous spirit. Her dress was a classic strapless A-line, extravagantly embellished with beaded lace. We encircled her tiny waist with a pink chiffon belt and detailed it with fabric flowers and a bow. The back of the skirt was ruffled and made from tulle, lace, soft chiffon and silky satin.
The end result was a perfect blend of classic and contemporary. So stunning!
