Carolyn- 'Isis' May 06'

Carolyn was married on a beautiful sunny day in May. She had the 'Isis' gown, made up in a stunning shade of burnt orange silk.

Isis, was one of Uptight's first designs from back in 2002, but its classic elegant lines make it timeless.
A simple hourglass corset, from burnt orange silk, with gold eyelets, with hand made silk ivy leaves and hand beading  in crystals and gem stones, with back matching ribbon lacing.
Teamed with a fitted bolero jacket in the same silk, with high collar and silk chiffon flowing sleeves. Finished off with a slim fitted elegant floor length silk skirt with small puddle train.
Uptight also made the jewellery and had the boots made to  order.

'There are not words to thank you enough.......... First of all for the most glorious dress - it exceeded all my dreams and reflected 'me' totally...... I can't remember how many complements I got today. ' 'Maybe the best one was from the caterers who said it was the most amazing dress they had ever seen and "we see a LOT of dresses".' 'Someone else told me that I was by far the most beautiful bride they had ever seen - as everything I was wearing (which was all down to you) was absolutely perfect for me, suited me perfectly and looked amazing.' 'Thank you - from the bottom of my heart. You were a huge part of our very special day. Also thank you for doing so much more on the day. I don't know how I would have managed to be ready and do everything if you hadn't been there - and Adrian would have been un-cravated!!!!! And the "Going Home" cue was perfect.'
