'From small acorns grow...'
Jane's stunning design was made from red/black silk taffeta, with a combination corset and sculpted sleeves.
The corset was embroidered with black work, starting with the tiny handmade acorns and embroidered oak leaves, representing the couple, with the entwined branched going up the front of the corset, representing their journey through life together, and the paths they may take.
The sleeves were sculpted to come out from the body, with hanging beaded drops coming from the edge. These were removable via lacing.
Jane had the cinderella slippers made up in the same fabric as the dress for perfect match.
'Thank you so much for all your help in the morning - what chaos we had going on at the house!
My gorgeous dress you made just was the most amazing dress I have ever seen and was everything I had imagined it to be.
Nick absolutely loved it and couldn't believe it when he saw
me coming in! You were a star at the ceremony and church.'
'All the guests were stunned by my dress and people just wanted
to touch it and stare at it ! Ruth my lilac bridesmaid walked up to me 4 times,
looked at me and said
"I love your dress !" '
'I really enjoyed the whole experience of having my dress designed
and made - you are such a talented person and have a very calming persona
for chaotic people like me! '
'Thanks again Janice - I shall miss coming to see you and chatting about my dream dress!!' Jane
