Zoe’s Whimsical Lace & Soft Tulle Wedding Gown

Zoe recently wed her man, Sam at Sitella Winery in the Swan Vallery on a gorgeous Spring day.

We created a whimsical lace and soft tulle wedding gown to suit Zoe’s alternative style. Zoe knew she definitely didn’t want a traditional white gown, so we opted for a ‘latte’ coloured gown with attention to detail. The skirt was shorter at the front so you could see her sweet little shoes and featured layers of uneven, draped tulle to create something different. The bodice featured the most gorgeous floral lace detail.

Zoe & Sam’s  wedding was captured by Ross Wallace Photography and the beautiful blooms were by Sandy at Manic Botanic.

I asked Sandra and Birgitta to make my wedding dress for me because I have quite an alternative style, and knew that I wouldn’t find anything that was ‘really me’ in any of the bridal shops.

The two girls made my dress to suit my body type and accentuate my best features. The end result was that on the day I really did feel beautiful and confident. I loved the fact that I got to choose everything that went into the dress, such as the colour, the type of lace and various materials, and it’s also a great feeling to know that no one else will ever have a dress the same as mine.

I had a specific theme for my wedding, which was vintage/rustic. I saved heaps of money through recycling! We collected jars, cut glass vases, metal buckets, old wooden boxes and suitcases for months and months before! Because my theme was rustic, I chose ‘wild flowers’ for the arrangements that were in season. This saved heaps of money, as they didn’t have to be imported in.

During the lead up to our wedding, I wanted to be as calm and relaxed as possible, and avoid being the dreaded ‘bridezilla’! It helped having great suppliers who were super easy to work with, but I also took the attitude that at the end of the day, the most important thing for me was that I was getting to marry my best friend and soul mate.
I made sure that I began the planning for the day early on and got advice from people I knew who had already had weddings.
The only time I really panicked was when my now – husband and I woke up two days before the wedding with gastro! But in the end, it all worked out and I had an amazing day!
