The new Mrs Povey!

Janine is one of my best customer at Violet Flamingo, when she told me her and Wayne had started planning their wedding I was excited to get started on this outfit.

One main thing Janine knew, it was going to be a 1950’s style, plus not plain white or ivory. Once we looked through the vast collection of fabric swatches I have in the studio the mint polka dot tulle stood out to her. With so many ideas to narrow down the best thing to do was sketch designs out and post them to her home. Janine really like two designs I sent, so these were combined and this is final piece for her special day.

Mint polka dot tulle and white taffeta dress, detachable white taffeta bow and flyaway veil, all Violet Flamingo.

Well Harrogate was fun, though me and Natalie were running on borrowed energy. We had a great time at both stalls over the weekend but I’ll be having some early nights this week! We had a lovely response from people who really appreciated the bespoke nature of the work I do, hopefully some of you lovely ladies will get in touch and have something truly unique made for your special day.

I thought these bouquets were beautiful, you can have them made from old maps from where you first met , love letters and your favourite book. These are completely bespoke and personal to each client. I would love one of these if I was getting married.

Well me and my glamorous assistant Natalie had an amazing time at the Manchester fair, our stall was busy throughout the day and we had a great response from the visitors.

I wish I would’ve had more time to look round myself but I just didn’t get a chance! No worries though we’ll be back in May and every other Manchester date this year!
