Leonie came armed with three pictures: One of an illusion neckline that she cut out of an antiquated You magazine. The second was of a beautiful bodice that appealed to her sense of style. And lastly, a skirt that flowed from her hips.
She wanted her dress to swirl around her as she walked down the aisle. They were getting married in the simmering sun of Robertson and so she wanted her dress to be super comfortable and cool. Leonie is such a spirited, spontaneous woman and I wanted the design to reflect that. To allow her to be comfortable in her skin and enjoy every moment.
This resulted in a dusty pink dress from silk chiffon with a dropped bodice and mid-cut back. The bodice was rouged and detailed with flowers. From there flowed a fabulous soft skirt.
I enjoyed these photo’s of Leonie’s wedding day so much! It’s such an accurate reflection of the generous and wholesome woman she is.
