Photoshoot: City Burlesque Wedding


From time to time I collaborate with other wedding professionals on styled wedding photoshoots. This one took place in August 2016 in London with the theme ‘City Burlesque’.  Locations included the ‘Duke if York’ steps, Admiralty Arch, Horse Guards Parade and Brick Lane.

I designed a knee length dress in ivory duchess silk satin and an elegant coat in cadbury purple. You can see photos of the making process and behind the scenes pictures from the shoot in my blog entries about this shoot.



The pearl rondel necklace and drop earrings were also made by me.
