Phoebe’s bespoke dress combined three separate pieces – one top and two skirts – as she’d planned to wear one skirt for the daytime celebrations and another for the evening. In the end, she was so happy in the first skirt she never changed into the second – though she assures me she’s worn it since!
Phoebe loved the lace of my Dahlia dress, plus the delicate pale pink silk of my Larkspur skirt. We created a fitted top from ivory lace backed in the pink silk, high-necked with cap sleeves and a row of widely spaced pearl buttons down the back.
For the daytime, Phoebe opted for a bespoke version of the Larkspur paneled skirt, with less flare in the panels, a petite train, and a shorter hemline at the front, to show off her petite ankles and heavenly rose gold shoes. The evening’s skirt was A-line and finished just below the knee, created from the same lace and silk combination as the top.
I ordered a lace edged veil for Phoebe which finished her look off perfectly - worn alongside her bespoke Clara Francis headpiece which I just adore.
Phoebe and Arya were married at the strikingly beautiful Tunnels Beaches in Devon. Their ceremony was outdoors, and their photographer Andy Gaines made the most of the moody skies, epic beach views and glorious sunset. These two both work in the music industry, so records featured in their decor – and as a base for their brilliant cake-topper likenesses!
“Just a little card to say a massive THANK YOU for everything! It all turned out great – better than great! I felt amazing on the day and swooshed that skirt so much.” Phoebe
