Deepest crimson....December 2008
Paula looked smoldering in her Red deepest crimson silk, curvy hourglass corseted gown, with full ball gown skirt in matching crimson silk and long train, which was able to bustle up for the evenings dancing. The corset was decorated with red and black Swarovski crystals, and a black cat embroidery on the back, something personal to Paula, a silk chiffon wrap was also made to match the outfit.
The low backed corset had a black cat embroidery, and a silver charm from her grandmothers bracelet was sewn on to the back of the corset too.
'Hi Janice Well, I think we’ve only just recovered from the madness of last Thursday, but we had an absolutely AMAZING day! I just wanted to send you a few pics (as promised), and also say a huge thank you for my wonderful dress! It was so special to wear it for my wedding, Ben was absolutely gobsmacked when he saw me, and had tears in his eyes when I got to the front of the ceremony room, very unlike him… Everyone was amazed by it, I’ve had comments in the guest book, on the picture we had people sign, and even the registrars who must have seen so many weddings were impressed! I have to say to any bride who’s not sure on whether to get one of your dresses or not, GO FOR IT! It’s so wonderful to have something made for you and be so unique. Not only that, but it felt great to wear all day, eat in and dance my socks off, even do the can-can to New York, New York later on! You were a great help on the day, everything seemed so manic in the last couple of hours and I really appreciated your help answering the phone and just quietly getting on with what you had to do. My dad was hugely impressed with the passion you have for your dresses, he couldn’t believe you were there, just as I was about to walk into the ceremony, making sure I looked perfect! Ben also gave you a big thank you in his speech later on, and got a big round of applause! I absolutely could not imagine a more perfect dress to marry in. I not only felt like a princess, I also had so much fun wearing it which really says a lot for the craftsmanship that goes into each dress to make it fit so perfectly. Best of luck for the new year, I hope you make many more brides feel as happy as I do, you deserve every bit of success you get! Paula xx '
