Georgie’s Dress Journey…
Our beautiful bride Georgie first came to see us in early 2020 to find the perfect dress for her wedding day. We tried so many great options in our collection and began to finalise design details. Unfortunately our showroom then had to close due to the first lockdown in London. Our team at AH and Georgie adapted to this new and unusual situation really quickly and we put a plan in place to make Georgie’s dress in time for September!
We started off with some video calls to finalise the dress details, fabrics and veil. Andrea had some lovely conversations with Georgie over this period remotely via video call, both of them working together to create the perfect dress which was our Zoe design. We swapped the lace back panels for a simpler sheer silk chiffon, a lovely customisation just for Georgie.
As soon as our studio was able to re-open in July we were ready to start making Georgie’s made to measure dress with our team. Working on a much shorter timeframe with only 2 months to go our team created Georgie’s dress ready for her big day in September. We were so thrilled to receive these stunning images of Georgie’s day, filled with love & happiness despite the change in circumstances and numbers.
The very exciting thing about Georgie’s dress is that it will be worn again! We will be cleaning & preserving Georgie’s dress ready for a bigger wedding in June 2021. Over the course of the year we will be creating a bespoke top & sash to transform Georgie’s outfit & adapt the look for summer 2021. Such a wonderful example of wearing your dress more than once and adapting to new situations, timelines and multiple events. All beautifully captured by Jessica Williams.
Congratulations Georgie & Julian! We could not have been happier to have been a part of your special day and we look forward to working with you over the coming months to transform your dress ready for the summer.
