Kate’s Long Sleeve Wedding Dress

Kate came to us chasing a long sleeve wedding dress as they are difficult to find off-the-rack. There are a number of reasons why but the main reason is, every bride’s arms are different making it tricky to create a generic ‘one size fits all’ sleeve. We even have to allow an extra fitting for sleeves to ensure we get the right fit and we’ve created A LOT of long sleeve wedding dresses! The plus side of having a custom made wedding gown is that you can have those tricky, hard-to-find designs made to suit your individual shape and that’s exactly what we did for Kate.

We designed a slimline satin skirt with a strapless bodice that featured an illusion lace neckline and long lace sleeves. Kate’s gown was finished with a puddle train and handmade buttons. Kate accessorised her gown with a gorgeous jewel encrusted crown and a veil.

Kate and her now husband Ben got married at Lamonts Bishops House, a romantic inner city venue. Their photos in the gardens surrounding and under the stars are truly beautiful! Kate even made her own floral arrangements and bouquets. What a clever bride!

What was your favourite moment on your big day?

It is hard to choose one moment but, signing the marriage certificate was up there. All of the formal part of the ceremony was done and I could stop being so nervous about saying my vows and appreciate Ben and take the moment in.

Any special tips on how to plan a wedding?

Stick to your guns. Everyone has ideas of what they have wanted their wedding to be like- even before they are engaged. Write down what it is that you and your partner want from the start so that you can remain focused. Whilst its great to toss around ideas with friends and family everybody has a different opinion and it can make some decisions more stressful.

How did you find your venue?

Ben found the venue online. We had driven past it so many times without even realising it was there. We went to so many but we always liked to idea of long tables and an outside reception so Lamonts Bishops House was perfect!
