Heaven is a Camper Van.

Temperatures reached 17'c for the wedding of Rachael and Steve held today at Skipton Registry office, and what better way for the bride to arrive than in the family camper van.

Rachael has become a very good friend and we initially discussed her wedding gown in a small coffee shop just off Skipton high street.
What impressed her so much was her dream gown would fall within her budget and she opted for a gorgeous pure silk georgette and devore satin fabric.

Rachael had 2 options for her wedding gown. Option 1 was to be a 2-piece corset style bodice with lace up back closure teamed with a flowing A-line skirt with small puddle train.
But, by January of this year and just as I was about to put scissors to fabric, Rachael informed me we needed to go for option 2.
I generally work on 3 fittings per gown although this can be more depending on the complexity of the work or where a weight loss plan is initiated or pregnancy is a factor. So, when Rachel informed me she would be 6 months pregnant by the time she married, construction of her gown was put on hold until the last possible moment.
It was going to be of the upmost importance to 'dress her pregnancy curves' still making her feel every inch the bride so we chose the drama of a Grecian style Empire-line gown

The whole ensemble was finished with a silk georgette stole.
and carrying a hand-tied posy of roses, Rachael completed her look with her hair pulled back into a pretty chignon knot fastened with pearl headed pins.

She looked totally stunning.
Many congratulations, Rachael and Steve, and a huge thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day.
