Christina had already decided that she wanted to combine pattern and lace on her wedding dress before she came to see me. She loved the delicate geometric design of the lace I’d used for my Larkspur top, and so we set about trying to find a patterned silk that would complement it. Christina found lots of options online, but when the swatches arrived we both fell for this was blue, green and gold floral patterned crepe-backed satin immediately.
To show off both fabrics, I created a two-piece dress for Christina: a floral silk slip based on my Camellia design, worn underneath a lace dress with a boat-neck, half-sleeves and a gently gathered skirt.
Christina and Graham married at Halifax Hall in Sheffield. Christina’s Scottish and Graham is American, so family and friends travelled from far and wide to celebrate with them.
“Thank you so much! We had the most wonderful day! The dress was perfect, I felt so beautiful, and so comfortable and everyone loved it! Everyone who I've shown the photos to has loved the dress and commented on how it's so unique and so very me, I'm so proud to have such a beautiful and original Kate Beaumont dress!” Christina
