Archive weddings


I don't know why I didn't think of this beforehand, but hey, I have now, and that's the main thing.

One of my 'issues' with blogging about my work is that it is mainly private, so although I'm often working on stuff a year before the event, it would be unthinkable to show it. Once the event is over it can take a while for pictures to come through, so often I'm very busy, but my hands are tied with visuals.

Until now.

I've made 100s of dresses and outfits over the years, so why not show them? Somehow, to me, the concept of blogging has always felt very much 'in the moment' rather than the past, but why I should think this way, I don't know, and I'm not now.


This is the wedding of Sabine. It was some years back now, but her picture has graced many of my adverts and publicity over the years (and no doubt will continue to do so), because I think she looks stunning in these pictures and the design kind of sums up my work 'look'.


The dress she is wearing is called Fleur. It is no longer in my collection, but a new version should appear sometime soon. This original version is a very slim A-line shape, but actually looks straight when she is walking down the stairs. People have often compared this image and 'look' to Audrey Hepburn, and there is something of the elfin about Sabine in this dress. I still love it and she looks so happy :)

Dear followers of this blog....

....thank you so much for your interest - I love the fact that I have recently generated a new follower too - whoever you are!

There is, however, a problem with the 'Followers' part of my blog - I can't see you. I used to be able to, but now you've disappeared, hence my not knowing who my new follower is.

I've looked on Blogger Help and it seems there are about 1000 other people with the same problem (not joking - its widespread), and no real answers from the 'help' section. So, loyal followers, I'm going to delete you and try and reinstall you - at some point soon. I'm dragging my feet about it in the hope that you will just magically appear without me having to do anything.

So if you find yourself having disappeared from anything related to this blog, please don't 'unfollow' me, I will be frantically trying to reinstate you, no doubt in a blaze of rage against technology that I don't really understand.

Thanks for your patience and I'll be back soon with more weddingy type malarky.

Some nonsense!

For your amusement and diversion while I plough through the summer weddings, trusty sewing machine smoking, back aching, fingers stabbed with pin pricks, eyeballs smarting and feeling like I could do with one of those chest magnifying glasses that my gran used to use! Its all glamour here people.

I hope to be able to show you some of these weddings soon :)

In the meantime...



Pippa's bum, if you're interested...which of course, I'm not.
