Elizabeth

St John's Waterloo, London, Feb 2010

Elizabeth wanted something a little different for her wedding at St John's Waterloo – she'd seen a fifties-inspired A-line tea length dress on our stand at the National Wedding Show and wanted something in a similar style.  Her dress, which had a sweetheart neckline, incorporated an organza overlay and an organza shrug jacket which she could remove for the reception.

A Ghanaian wedding

Yemi remembers: "I've had many brides from Ghana but Frances's wedding was the first opportunity I'd had to travel to Ghana to dress a bride.  Frances knew my work from her sister's wedding where she wore a Kosibah bridesmaid's dress and always swore that when her big day came, she'd come back to Kosibah for her wedding dress."

Dress description: light-weight silk taffeta, hand-ruched bodice, modified A-line skirt.  Removable top with beaded lace.  Retractable train for the reception.
