Layla’s Wedding Dress

Layla is our very dear friend who wanted a very different wedding dress to most in a fairly short space of time. We came up with a number of ideas involving all sorts of different fabrics and talked over most of it via Skype due to Layla’s hectic work schedule which has her flying all over the world. We settled on using one of the most simple fabrics available – cotton jersey, to create this dress.

The brief for the shape of the dress was simple – fitted to the bodice and sleeves, gently clinging to the hips and flowing down into a subtle slit at the front and a huge train at the back. The striking open back was needed to give the dress extra edge.

As Layla wanted to be able to wear the dress to be able to walk through the countryside, pick up little-ones and generally to mooch around in all day, it needed to be super comfortable and wearable as well as as striking and beautiful as she is.

We were so blessed to be there for Layla and Richard’s wedding weekend and we’re thrilled to see that her story features on the amazing Rock n Roll Bride too.
