Jaz found me online after searching for oyster coloured wedding dresses, fell in love with my work, and arranged to travel up from West Sussex to see the dresses for herself.
Jaz chose an oyster coloured slip dress in heavyweight crepe-backed satin, which we raised up at the back for her a little. Over the top she wore the Larkspur lace top, to which we added the lace’s scallop at the neckline instead of the original silk binding. Jaz chose a sparkly braid belt and picot edged veil to finish her look, and ordered two extra matching belts for her bridesmaids – her daughter Martha and friend Romany.
Jaz and Simon planned their wedding to be a double celebration – they’d been together ten years and booked their wedding for the day after their daughter Martha Meadow’s ninth birthday, so combined the two events and held a mad hatter’s tea party for Martha as part of their celebrations. They were married at The Italianate Loggia at Nymans – a stunning National Trust property in Sussex. As well as the two beautiful bridesmaids, Jaz had another fifteen flowergirls and pageboys – she’s a nanny and has a huge softspot for children! All were dressed impeccably, and the girls’ flowercrowns were divine.
“Dearest Kate, Maker of Dreams, Here I am, looking the happiest I’ve ever looked. Thank you so very, very much for creating my beautiful wedding gown. You made the whole process such a joyful experience and I will be forever grateful to you for your kindness shown to myself and also to Martha, in all our fittings with you. Kate, thanks to you I felt the most special I have ever felt. I had so many compliments about my gown.” Jaz
