Shelly and I have been close friends since we studied together, and were always united by our love of fashion (there have been many many hours spent getting ready to go out together over the years). It was so special that we could create her wedding dress together!
We wanted to make something special and romantic, with lots of sparkle, a dress that she could dance the night away in and simultaneously have a wow factor.
We opted for a sleek trumpet-shaped gown that shows off Shelly's stunning figure, with a small train that wouldn't get in the way when it was time for the party. Her gown was created in a fully beaded fabric, lined with chantilly lace. We added heavily beaded chantilly lace detail to the bodice and hip area of the gown, creating the beautiful sparkle effect that we wanted to incorporate. To finish off the look, we added a removable tulle overskirt with a dramatic train and a soft, cathedral length veil.
