An Emerald Green Wedding Dress for a Stunning St Albans Wedding
We absolutely love working with our brides on custom and bespoke pieces especially when it comes to colour, it allows creativity to flow and new ideas to form. Our gorgeous real bride Georgina came to us with a clear vision for her dress, it needed to be emerald green and it needed to sparkle!
When Georgina first came to see us we had recently launched our new collection of Evening Wear which included a stunning emerald green silk. We tried this on for colour and it was just perfect! The tone was so beautiful on Georgina and the delicate sheen added an elegant bridal feel.
We now had our fabric but needed to work on skirt shape, bodice details and neckline. Georgina tried on various styles with our stylist Siobhan to work out which shapes felt right. Our Esme dress from Elements Collection was a clear favourite with delicate spaghetti straps, beading on the bodice and a low, statement back. It was decided that Esme was the perfect bodice and our team would source an emerald green beading to compliment the silk.
Next up was skirt shapes. We tried fitted and fuller styles but our Zoe skirt from Reflection Collection was the winner. A slim a-line shape that flowed effortlessly and captured the movement of the green silk beautifully.
It was so wonderful working with Georgina to bring her vision to life, we had created the perfect dress and now it was time to bring it all together!
Our production team set to work sourcing swatches of green glass beading to pair with Georgina’s chosen silk. We found various options but this linear beading was an amazing colour match and the perfect amount of sparkle for the bodice.
Georgina visited our studio for fittings in the lead up to their special day to perfect the fit and finish off her stunning dress. It was really exciting seeing this dreamy design come to life and our seamstresses loved working on it.
Georgina and Adrian got married in St Albans, a city close to our hearts and where Andrea started her bridal career! With its beautiful Cathedral and picturesque streets, Georgina looked completely at home in her bespoke AH design.
They finished their special day celebrating at Loft, St Albans where they enjoyed drinks, food & dancing.
