This week we received a lovely message from our La Novia bride Amy who got married back in July at Carlowrie CastlWe created a custom-made style, based on our Katharine dress, and we are glad to hear that Amy loved it just as much as we loved making it (we think this is our favourite dress this year!):
“I just wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU! You are all so talented and amazing and I cannot thank you enough! Thank you for creating a perfect dress for me, and for all the advice and expertise. Also for accommodating the last minute veil issue!! Thank you!! My dress was truly unique and I had so many lovely comments on it. I really hope its the new ‘Amy’ Dress!”
It was a pleasure to work on this new design and Amy looked absolutely perfect in her bespoke gown, which channeled a classic and Royal elegance. Created by our designer Liliana Dabic, the dress is cut from luxury Duchess satin in ivory, and has an off-shoulder neckline which is so flattering, exposing the collarbones and elongating the neck; the folded detail at the neck and back looked sooo gorgeous on Amy and gives a sophisticated vintage look along with the fabric-covered buttons, which go all the way down to the train.
Amy had an extra special trick up her sleeve with this dress, in that we made them detachable! Once she found the Katharine dress which is originally sleeveless, Amy suggested that she may have preferred to have a long sleeve. For a Summer wedding, a sleeve can feel a little restrictive to wear all day and into the evening, especially in a heavier fabric. We decided to work our magic and give Amy the best of both worlds so created chic long sleeves which attach with discreet popper fastenings into the armholes; and with the folded detail around the arms you could never tell.
This dress makes a statement and the voluminous skirt creates a dramatic, regal silhouette which Amy carried effortlessly. She finished off her look with a single-layer cathedral length veil which was oh so traditional. This complimented the theme of her wedding ceremony and classic feel of the day perfectly, as it was held at the historic Carlowrie Castle. The venue boasts gorgeous grounds, where Anna Urban captured some amazing images of the happy couple.
We are delighted to see so many smiles in these photos and Amy looking like a dream in her dress. Huge congratulations from the La Novia team!
