Wedding Wednesday #10

Jessica Holmes

I must apologise as it has been a while since we've visited my Wedding Dress Wednesday shots. In light of this fact I thought a special dress should be shown. This is one of the first wedding dresses I ever made, it was part of my final exhibition when I graduated from London College of Fashion. The inspiration for its creation came from a Shakespeare sonnet centred on love and it began my own love affair with wedding dresses and all that they entail.

The style of the dress itself has a touch of the Victorian to it, what with the delicate button fastening at its centre back and subtle lace applique. However, the overall look is significantly 1920s/30s, highlighted in a bias cut panel at the front for a flattering fit.

A few modern touches - such as the wired hem and green thread that runs along it - ensures this dress remains firmly in the present. And don't miss the surprise addition of our dog, Willow, joining me in the mirror!

To veil or not to veil? It’s an important question to ask yourself before the big day. Personally I was fairly sure I would abstain as it just didn’t really appeal. But then one of my brides said something to change my mind: when else in your life do you get to wear a veil?!

Once she had uttered those words there was no going back – how could I possibly miss out on wearing something so iconic by choice? Despite this I didn’t exactly opt for the traditional. As my dress was made with polka-dot tulle it seemed only right that my veil should follow suit. I also opted for the full-chapel length (longer than the train on my dress!) though wore it off my face throughout.

Even though my veil was a little unorthodox I still felt classic and timeless – like a proper bride. If you’re struggling to decide whether to wear a veil or not just remember there are many options out there, so try them all before opt out – this is your only chance after all. However, all I have said regarding 'one and only' opportunities has made me want to fight against that norm, so here I am today wearing a more traditional veil as I work in the studio! And I must say, I think it goes rather nicely with my outfit - no?

What's your opinion on wedding dress trains? The longer the better or less is more? The fit of this particular dress accentuates the train though compared to most it isn't that lengthy.

A train can add a touch of majesty to your wedding gown however, as a bride you will feel almost regal as it trails behind you. A delicate train can make for some beautiful photos too and it sets you apart from your bridesmaids.

Vintage patterns inspired the dress I'm wearing today to create a throw back to Hollywood glamour. It flatters those curves you have and even creates some in the right places if you're lacking.

Things are starting to feel very autumnal in our Wedding Wednesday shoot today... Wearing one of our more quirky dresses here - it is a transformative dress as the bustle and cloud-like skirt can be removed to reveal a shorter dress beneath. Perfect if really want to go crazy with your dance moves at the reception!

The skirt itself is wired to give it that awesome volume, but if this look is a little too 'out there' for you, it can (and has) been made with an alternative skirt. This way you can achieve a more traditional look for the day but don't miss out on the unique evening under-dress!

Its asymmetric neckline ensures you will never look like an 'ordinary' bride in this dress. It's that one day when all eyes will be on you - so why not make the most of it and really stand out?

Oh, it's a dull day to be sure... So why not get a little fresh air in the garden in a wedding dress and wellies to cheer you up? Worked wonders for me! A little chill in the air meant a t-shirt had to be worn too but actually, I kind of like the combination - my regular mid-week outfit from now on perhaps?
