Ruby Red, Medieval Fantasy Wedding...
Victoria was married in spring, she married her childhood sweetheart looking like a medieval princess at Tamworth castle on a fantastic sunny day. She had a red/black shot regal silk corset with ruby coloured Swarovski crystals on the front with top fitted laced up sleeves flowing into silk shot chiffon medieval style sleeves, edged in gold thread. Both were laced up with red and gold ribbons. The skirt and cloak were Victoria's own, (skirt altered and enhanced by Uptight) but in the same style as Uptight designs, and can be ordered here. And the stunning jewellery was from Medieval bridal fashions, http://www.medievalbridalfashions.com/.
'Dear Janice, I just had to write to you straight away after coming back from our honeymoon to give you the biggest most massive thankyou that I possibly could squeeze into an email! I can't believe that I came to you all that time ago with a story of how I have always dreamed of my perfect dress for my perfect wedding and you sat there and sketched it exactly like I used to in the back of my English book at school! You just knew what I meant by my made up words to describe the details of my dress and you went on to create Frock a Rama! It is amazing! Everyone who was there Loved it nearly as much as me and even though Paul knew basically what I was going to wear he was still surprised at just how beautiful it all was and whispered to me at the alter "You look nice baby!" I also can't thank you enough for putting up with my endless changes to the design and how we were able to still have you make my dream dress when our funds became limited. There is no-one who could have made 'Ruby ruby ruby ruby' like you and there is no-one that I would have wanted to even bother trying, so there! Hehe! Your being there on the day calmed me instantly (a difficult job for anyone!) and your help was so very valued by everyone and you even brought the sunshine with you! I will wear my corset at EVERY available opportunity and I am already planning a post wedding shoot with Venus (I will leave enough time to try and climb into my dress though as you make it look so easy!). Millions and billions of extra Thankyous and lots and lots of Love from Victoria (and Paul and the children!) '
