Summer Photo Shoot: Gemma wedding dress by Rachel Lamb Design

Gemma wedding dress is a beautifully light gown, ideal for a summer wedding (it was a very hot day when we photographed it) or a beach wedding, or if you're a comfort loving kind of gal. The skirt is made of a fine soft satin overlaid with soft ivory tulle attached to a softly shaped fine lace bodice with beaded spaghetti straps. It's finished off with a simple satin ribbon and crystal motif at the waist. Gemma dress is really easy to move about in and you don't feel like it's wearing you.

Gemma wedding dress is a made to order wedding dress and is available to view in my studio now, by appointment only please. For more information or to make an appointment, please email.

Summer Photo Shoot: Bridal Separates by Rachel Lamb Design

Here's the 2nd of the outfits from my photoshoot back in the summer.

This is a selection of bridal separates: The top - Dilys - is made from an embroidered tulle lace and is ideal for wearing over a more revealing garment such as a strapless dress or you could also wear it with nothing underneath if you're brave.

Worn with Dilys is Dinky - a simple strapless bodice with random pleats, and Fritzi nude colour tulle bridal skirt. Fritzi bridal skirt can be made in many different tulle colours, as can Dinky bodice.

All garments are available to order now as made to measure bridal separates by appointment at my studio. To enquire or to make an appointment, please email.

Summer Photo Shoot: Kallista Dress by Rachel Lamb Design

Time has flown this year, and back in July the fantastic wedding photographer Sarah Brookes took some photos of some of my Collection dresses.

The day was sweltering hot but we managed to find some shade somewhere!

This first dress I'm showing you is modelled by Steph Swan and is called Kallista. It's a statement of a dress with a full ballgown shaped skirt with a strapless feathered bodice. The feathers are optional of course which completely changes the look from something quite humourous to a more traditional feel. The dress is made in a fabric called Zibeline and is available to view and order in my studio right now. This is a dress that your friends won't forget!

Steph's makeup is by Flashkate MUA, her hair is by Becci Jones Hairdressing and her flowers are by the wonderful Florae Foray.

Fine lace wedding dress with hand beaded waist

Here are some beautiful shots of one of my brides and her husband on their wedding day this summer.

The bride wore a bespoke design: ivory lace A-line shaped dress with lace capped sleeves. On the back we used a bolder lace applique, and the waistline was hand beaded with crystals.

The photos above are by Andrea Cantova for N Drew.

The above 2 images are from fittings and work in progress :)

White ruffles wedding dress testimonial

Lovely testimonial from a bride:

'The quality of Rachel's work is excellent and I would especially note how fussy she was about the dress fitting perfectly - exactly what you need from a dressmaker. I was very happy with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an expert in bridal couture.'
