Our beautiful bride Caroline got married in July 2020, sticking with their original date but creating a closer more intimate garden wedding with family and friends. The sun was shining and the day was filled with love and happiness! The beautiful images were captured by Deborah Grace Photography.
Caroline first visited our showroom in 2019 and decided on our silk satin bias cut Aerin Dress paired with a customised version of our Aerin Cape. Caroline wanted a little extra detail so we added a collar to the cape, such a beautiful and elegant touch that completed the look.
Caroline’s dress journey was far from typical as we navigated through lockdown but our team adapted to this new situation and came together to create Caroline’s dress. A video call was set up with Andrea to help guide Caroline on how to measure herself at home, from these measurements we started to work on Caroline’s made to measure dress pattern. The dress was then made in silk and lace ready for a final fitting just a couple of weeks before the big day!
Caroline’s dress fitted perfectly and she was our first bride to get married in a covid secure way. We were so thrilled to have worked on this design and proud of our team for adapting so quickly to new circumstances. “As a small business owner myself I knew from the moment I started planning our wedding that I would love supporting other small and local businesses. Given the rollercoaster of planning a wedding during a global pandemic, I was so touched by the amazing businesses we worked with, who adapted from our initial big day plans to our small, socially distant, but truly magical day”
“Thank you for such a stunning dress and cape and thank you so much for getting it made in time – it was incredible that you made it so quickly and it fitted so well. I adored wearing it, I genuinely felt like a princess and everyone has been saying how beautiful it is, but also how unique which is what I was looking for!”
In support of small businesses, Caroline is the founder of C.St.Quinton, a wonderful Pyjama business with a focus on ethical production and raising money towards the protection of the magnificent white rhino.
