Missy Gets Married

January 2012

We got married in a little white wooden dance hall built in the 1890's that sits right on the edge of Sydney harbour in a hidden cove. For us it was all about quality, old school romance and having an authentic vintage feel about the celebration. These elements extended to everything about the day, Shaun's suit was made by one of the oldest suit houses on Saville Row, I wore an intricate lace gown by a London designer, a pair of Vivienne Westwood jelly heels and a spectacular headpiece that I made myself. Not to mention the 3 love heart hats that i made for the bridemaids.
The headpiece was my 'something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue' all in one. The rosettes were made out of 100 year old French lace which was dyed by hand to achieve those blush coloured peach and pinky tones, the large mother of pearl comb was bought new on a trip to Paris' garment district and the grey silk tulle (ever so slightly blue) was refashioned 'borrowed' from the 1950's because it is no longer made.

I hope you all enjoy the photos with as much joy as the day brought me.
