Collaborating with Cliveden House

Collaborating with Cliveden House

Every now and then I like to look back and reflect on my achievements so far. I was reminded of the shoot that started it all. I had the opportunity of designing a mini collection based on Cliveden House, a luxury country house, a wedding venue in Berkshire.

It was the perfect setting for an enchanted wedding shoot. The fairy tale architecture, lavish interiors and breathtaking grounds set amongst 376 acres of National Trust parklands, overlooking the grounds. Wow!! It’s all coming back to me, it was truly breathtaking. Cliveden is surely one of the finest places in the UK to consider for a fabulous wedding.

With the venue so enriched in tradition and ornate, elaborate decor, I was mindful of not making my designs too traditional but rather marrying the traditional with the fashion forward slender silhouettes that the Rita Colson bride represents. The outcome was long sleek vintage lace dresses and soft tulle princess styled dress in blush.

Meghan Fay of Extraordinary Day Events was the mastermind behind the shoot. Bringing together the industry’s finest to create an A Team. I had never been on such a well thought through creative shoot before this one. The shoot has been published three times, Bridal Musings, ‘So you’re getting married’ and English wedding blog. It continues to serve as inspiration for wedding ideas.

Take a look, let me know what you think.
