Hannah

St John's Wood Church, London, April 2006

Hannah had also fallen in love with the same Kosibah classic design as Dawn which she saw in a magazine advertisement.  Hannah decided to embellish her dress with diamante directly onto the dress fabric.

Hawa

Scotland, Feb 2010

Hawa, who married a premier league footballer, came to us through a recommendation from Efe's wedding and wanted a dress that combined structure with softness.   The bodice was made from crepe-backed satin and hand-stitched lace appliqués.  The bodice followed the shape of her body to below her hips and then flared out with a georgette, two-layered skirt. 

The gown featured a commissioned jewelled shoulder strap to match her headpiece.
