Erica, The Sea and the Tree.... Nov 11th 2018.

Erica had an original design inspired by a tree from her homeland of New Zealand, the Pohutkawa tree and flowers.

This was designed into a landscaped  and then embroidered in to the front and back of the corset.

The corset was made from a deep Teal silk, with removable laced up sleeves, and the skirt was made from layers of soft tulle with silver edging.

'Heya Janice, here are some wedding pics for you!!

I had so many fricken awesome comments about my dress, everyone was so impressed with the level of detail and work that had gone in to it.

They were particularly impressed that it was made in the Uk by someone who had never seen a pohutukawa tree or flower before! I felt so amazing on the day to be wearing such a beautiful creation & it made me feel so confident!

That dress was made for twirling so I had to twirl my way down the aisle!! (To Janis Joplin, Piece of my heart), it was also made for dancing and me & my dress spent a decent amount of time on the dance floor throughout the day!!

Thank you for making the end to end process of having my made dress made such a fantastic experience, you took my ideas and made them into a one of a kind spectacular piece of wearable art!!

The icing on the cake was meeting & hanging out with you - a kindred spirit!! I look forward to finding reasons in the very near future to catch up together!!

Big love xoxo'
