Real Bride: 50's style delight!

Our gorgeous bride Brona (on right) looked incredible when she tied the know with Su.
She chose a new, vintage style wedding gown from our collection which is actually full length. 
Brona then had the tulle skirt shortened to a fun, tea length which suited her perfectly.
Their recent wedding featured in The Times, how exciting!
Congratulations to both beautiful brides!

Real Bride: Prepare Yourselves For This Romantic Elopement!

When Dirty Fabulous bride, Lais sent her wedding photos in, they were all so incredible it was hard to narrow down which ones to post! These are just a selection from what must be one of the most romantic weddings we've ever seen.
Lais and her hubby Patrick, chose to have an elopement in Glenveagh, Donegal. Apart from hair and make-up in the morning, the only person to spend the day with the couple was their amazing photographer  from This Modern Love
We think Lais looked mesmerising in her Dirty Fabulous 1960's lace wedding dress and veil. We also created a dramatic feather headpiece in peacock tones to match Lais's shoes for her to wear later in the day. It made a striking silhouette that we adored!
Sit back and enjoy a feast for the eyes and soul....
