We were married under three 100 year old London Plane trees in Victoria’s high country in mid-April, just as the autumn leaves started to turn. I sewed my wedding dress (duh) and I don’t think I’ve been prouder of something I’ve achieved for myself – ever. It made the experience that much more special!!
I think photos convey what I want to share with you all better than words, so this is a selection that showcase the dress. More on the inspiration, fabrics, construction and lessons learned to follow…
Leisa, my Fabric Fairy Godmother
Alessia and the crew @ Marfy – the best patterns out there – thank you!
Vikki Leigh Martin, for helping with proportion & fit
Susan Khalje, for enabling
And to Mr poppykettle, who took on the lions share of domestic duties and sat alone on the couch for many, many nights whilst I toiled away in the sewing room. He knows it was worth it ;)
You guys rock!
All photos (except the one of Trent icing the cake) were taken by Todd Hunter McGaw.
