Veronica & Geoff's Elegant & Relaxed Wedding

The always beautiful concept of a soft, flowing"Grecian Goddess" wedding gown, with rusching, a touch of beading and long, lean, elegant lines, suits so many people (and you certainly don't have to be Greek to wear it!). Here are some of my fave photos from one of our recent 'Culture Bridal Couture' bride's wedding album... congraulations, Veronica, you look absolutely DIVINE!

Veronica's Grecian-inspired Culture Bridal Couture gown was made by my team & I, from pure silk chiffon in a soft "silk white" colour. The gown had structure within, but softness on top, and featured hand-rusching, a one-shouldered draped neckline, the Empire Line decorated with gorgeous hand-stitched applique of silver swirl beaded lace & lots of Swarovski crystals, and a dramatic shoulder "cape train" which was detachable.

Veronica & Geoff tied the knot in the Trinity Grammar School Chapel, surrounded by many happy friends & family. They went for a relaxed, elegant and stylish wedding reception at Quay Restaurant in the Rocks, using their chosen colours of chocolate, latte, magenta & burnt orange in the cake, flowers, wedding stationary and overall theming.

Veronica's Mum is a florist (how handy!), and her & the team from "Lucy's Florist" in Summer Hill created an amazing display of white and magenta cymbidium orchids, highlighted with dusty-pink & latte coloured roses, and Singapore orchids blended with Native flowers for the church pews.

Stay tuned for more of our "real weddings" very soon!
