This stunning gown is made from one of our all-time favourite fabrics, a beautiful light silk Habotai. With its off-the-shoulder neckline and that gorgeous ruched bodice, this gown has a timeless and classical feel. Layers of Habotai, chiffon and organza gives the skirt volume and glorious movement. And of course, this dress has one of our signature corsets hidden away inside. Giving you full support, structure and defining that waist.

Gemma and Rob

“Lizzie did an amazing job with my dress, a beautiful creation of red silk with cream lace
flowers, also adding sparkles and my random crocheted feathers to accommodate my very
last minute request. She even went so far as to deliver it to the hotel when I was tied up
decorating the venue the evening before the wedding. Everyone thought the dress looked
amazing, and I received countless compliments on it. No off the shelf dress would ever have matched my dreams like hers did.”

Gemma and Rob were married at Kedleston Hall and had their reception on the parks grounds in Tipis! Gemma knew exactly what she wanted when she first came the boutique. “A red dress, to reflect my Chinese heritage.” So we set about finding the perfect red, and came across this stunning silk dupion. Hand appliquéd cream French lace adds such a beautiful effect to the dress and I just love the way the lace seems to organically creep up from the hem.

Jessica and Mark

“Elizabeth is friendly, confident and amazingly artistic. She made me feel instantly at ease and helped me design the perfect wedding dress for me. Elizabeth knew what my dress would look like even before I did and her creative skill is beautiful. I was fully part of the process and was able to change my dress design throughout. Her attention to detail and my needs made my dress into a unique masterpiece. Her initiative was phenomenal. I could not have asked for a better dress designer, I love my dress! Elizabeth had been recommended to me by a friend, she is very professional and her work speaks for itself.” Jessica Simpson (Brunt)

Jessica and Mark were married at Shottle Hall in Derbyshire. Jessica wore a bespoke version of our Charlotte design, a porcelain satin bodice and lot of luscious layers of tulle for the skirt. With a delicate French lace Jacket, little cap sleeves and a pretty flower decorated with hand stitched sparkly Swarovski crystals. To finish off this stunning gown we added a beautiful lace trim to the hem of the skirt, the perfect finishing touch.

When I was excited, she was excited for me. Lizzie took time and care getting my dress just perfect for me and I had absolute trust in her skills to do so. Lizzie created the most beautiful wedding dress for me and made me feel more amazing than I ever thought possible!”

“Lizzie is an absolute genius! Not only is she one of the loveliest people in the world she also made me the dress of my dreams and the experience of having it made was so special. Thank you so much Lizzie I’ve never felt so wonderful in my life.” Jessica Willison (King)
