Lisa’s Beautiful Soft Lace Wedding Gown

It’s pretty special when you get the opportunity to make a friend’s wedding dress. I still remember Lisa coming to watch one of my student fashion shows. She’s been a friend for a really long time, way before Elvi was even born!

We created soft and delicate lace wedding gown for Lisa. The gown featured a fitted bodice with a lace overlay that formed cap sleeves and an illusion neckline. The a-line skirt also had a lace overlay that created a gorgeous train.

Lisa and Russell married at Darlington Estate in the Perth Hills, they held a gorgeous lunch time reception for their friends and family. I was lucky enough to attend (you’ll find a sneaky photo of me at the bottom of the post).

Here, Lisa reminisces about her wedding day…

What was your favourite moment on your big day?

The end of the official ceremony when every one came forward to congratulate us & we could relax with our friends & family.

How did you find your venue?

We were lucky to book the beautiful Darlington Estate Winery. We love the natural bush setting & it made our photos beautiful.

What kind of bride did you want to be?

Relaxed and down-to-earth. I wanted to make sure I didn’t take it all so seriously that I couldn’t enjoy myself.

Any special tips on how to plan a wedding? 

Try not to stress too much. Things don’t always go to plan (it rained all day during our wedding), but as long as you get to the end of the day & you’re officially married & you’ve had a good time then nothing else really matters.

Do you have any advice you’d like to pass on to other brides? 

Surround yourself with suppliers who suit your personality. I was really lucky to work with people who were very professional, but not too full on & that really suited my style.

How did your wedding dress make you feel? 

Beautiful. And as much as I loved it on the day I love the dress even more in the photos – the detail in the lace work is more stunning every time I look at it. Thanks Elvi!!
