Jess & Leon’s Wedding on GWS

We were delighted to discover Jess & Leon’s amazing wedding on Green Wedding Shoes. Christine Lim captured the day beautifully. I’ve never seen a wedding with so many pretty and thoughtful touches, Jess sourced her wares from many local WA suppliers. You’ll find Jess and her bridesmaid in their custom-made Elvi ‘designs’.

Jess’s Tea-Length Ivory Lace Wedding Dress

Posted by on Jun 8, 2012 in Real Weddings | No Comments

I was so excited when I received these images from Christine Lim Photography. I had the pleasure of attending Jess & Leon’s stunning garden wedding and I still remember the tingles I felt when Jess walked down the aisle. She looked amazing!

I met with Jess a year prior to her wedding to design and create her unique wedding gown. She was looking for a vintage style lace tea-length gown with sleeves. We designed the gown to compliment her tattoos and the shoes she had already purchased. The gown was made from luxurious silk dupion and old fashioned cord lace, the lace was sculpted by hand to fit the silhouette of Jess’s frame. We finished her lace gown with a jewel encrusted waist band and self covered silk dupion buttons.

Jess was kind enough to model her gown on our stand at First Comes Love recently. Thank you Jess, you have been such a pleasure to work with. I wish you were getting married again!

Tenae in her Elvi wedding dress

We love it when our clients send us a little thank you email, it’s the best feeling. Tenae looks fantastic in her custom-made lace frock. She accessorised the dress with pink – belt, shoes and bike! She also wore her grandfather’s antique fob watch.

“Thank you Sandra and Brigitta for creating such a beautiful wedding dress, I absolutely love it! I had so many wonderful comments about it on the day. The dress was also an absolute breeze for me to dance and ride a bike in – so good work there too!” – Tenae Francis
