Lorena & Edmund
Lorena wore separates for her wedding & worked with Laura to create a bespoke 3/4 sleeve top made from delicate corded lace to go with a flowing silk skirt. The scalloped edges of the lace were used to create the deep v-neckline and open back of the top which fastened with covered buttons. Lorena was looking to create something feminine and beautiful, but which also showed a little bit of skin.
“Walking around the fair, I spotted the stand of Lorie X. Laura Hall is a young London-based bridal designer who specialises in alternative and bohemian brides. She is really incredibly unique and crazy talented – I expect big things from her. She had separates as part of her debut collection, which was a sign, and one of her tops featured a stunning corded lace, just like the one I wanted.
I felt she instantly got me and I ended up commissioning her to create my bespoke three-quarter sleeve lace top. When I tried the finished version for the first time, a few weeks before the wedding, I wanted to cry! It was stunning and what I had envisioned in my head. Laura was amazing throughout the process – dedicated, enthusiastic, patient, affectionate, professional and I can’t recommend her enough.”

Lorena & Edmund’s wedding was recently featured on Love My Dress.
Danielle & Martin
Danielle wanted to create a printed veil to wear with her wedding dress, the veil featured flowers & greens from her wedding bouquet – pale pink peonies, white leafy hydrangeas and spiralling eucalyptus stems. The layout was to be organic, using the eucalyptus curves to add movement and frame the veil along with the tumbling flowers. The photographic elements were printed onto silk chiffon to create a floor length delicate veil – such a fun and quirky, yet beautiful way to add a little colour and personality. Danielle & Martin’s names and their wedding date were hidden amongst the leaves making it even more personal to them.

Kate & Pete
Kate’s bespoke dress was made from a cream silk duchess satin bodice and printed silk chiffon skirt. Kate had the idea that she wanted flowers to be a part of the design and the print was developed with this in mind. It features hand painted drawings in ink of the flowers Phlox, Stephanotis and Myrtle; which in the Victorian Language of Flowers mean ‘our souls are united’, ‘happiness in marriage’ and ‘love’ respectively. The dress features a train, but with a detachable hand loop which could be used to scoop up the skirt so it wouldn’t be in the way of dancing in the evening.
