Joanna- 'Moonspell'- Sept 08'
Joanna was married in september wearing the Moonspell design. Consisting of a silver blue silk corset with silk chiffon overlay cut work with free machine embroidery full moon and tree in silver threads, with Swarovski crystals applied.
It also had textured dingle dangles on the seams, the same was added to the bustle to add a flowing ethereal look. The skirt was a fitted front with small bustle back with small train, all made form the silver silk, lined in lilac silk. the jacket was a fitted bolero style form the silver silk, with high collar, lined in lilac. With the sleeves in a flowing silk chiffon in a pale cloud, with silver edging. the back of the jacket had the same silver moon and tree embroidery.
'I cannot thank you enough for my beautiful dress - it is such a work of art I almost can't bear to put it in a box, it deserves to be framed on the wall instead! My dress seemed to be pretty much the only topic of conversation at the wedding, and people still mention it now whenever I see them. I think that nobody (including Grant) expected me to be wearing a white A-Line or a meringue, but nobody imagined it would be anything like it was - Grant wouldn't actually look at me until half way through the ceremony as he kept bursting into tears! Thanks to your recommendation on your website, I also loved the diadem from AmbreAgorn - everyone kept saying that the dress and the diadem were so very me! In case your other brides are looking for bridesmaids dresses which go with the Uptight gowns, mine were made to order from Bridesmaids Direct (www.bridesmaidsdirect.co.uk) Iona and Caitlin styles - I mention it because I found it very difficult to find bridesmaids dresses which didn't look very modern and both of these went really well with my dress. The other supplier I wanted to mention to you is Woodland Treasures (www.woodlandtreasures.co.uk) - I commissioned Geoff to make my wedding present to Grant - a kilt pin shaped like an oak leaf with moonstone acorns, oak and moonstone cufflinks and a beautiful circular plaid brooch with an oak tree inside it with a moonstone shining through the branches. They are absolutely lovely and Geoff was really helpful, managing to turn it around superquick! Very best of luck with all your endeavours - you are such a uniquely talented artist, I'm sure Uptight will go from strength to strength. Take care, Joanna'
