HELEN AND ALAISTER'S WEDDING AT STOWE HOUSE

A message to our beautiful bride Helen from her groom, Alaister:

 

“I feel very lucky to have shared such an incredible day with you and look forward to the fantastic journey we have ahead of us.

 

All my love, Alaister xxx.”

For her wedding day at Stowe House, Helen chose to have a couture, Phillipa Lepley corseted wedding dress with a hand beaded, French lace bodice.

With a striking low off-the-shoulder neckline and a dramatic low V back neckline, the corseted bodice of Helen’s dress was made up of individual lengths of scalloped lace edging, hand embellished with silver and diamanté beads to highlight the rose motifs within the lace. Layer upon layer of the glistening, beaded lace was moulded in tiers over the bodice of Helen’s dress giving a decadent, luxurious finish.

To prepare to walk down the aisle towards her future husband Alaister, Helen wore the blusher of her cathedral length silk tulle veil over her face.

 

“Our wedding day was just amazing! Seeing you in your dress for the first time is a moment that I will always treasure.

 

You looked so beautiful and elegant, and your dress perfectly complemented the grandeur of Stowe.”

 

(Alaister, Groom)

Layer upon layer of gathered tulle gave a light, frothy and fresh feel to Helen’s dress. The fullness of the tulle skirt contrasted the cinched in shape of Helen’s waist in her signature Phillipa Lepley corset beautifully.
