I can still remember how excited I was when Carmen and Warren’s wedding photographs finally came out. I had so much joy looking at their beautiful wedding day, and seeing how everything came together. To this day Carmen is still one of the most stylish brides I’ve ever had the privilege of working with!


Carmen’s classic white wedding dress was made of bridal satin for the base of the dress. To create a stunning full skirt I used a layer of chiffon, leaving a little extra at the back creating a train to complete the look. I used some more chiffon over the bodice, draping and sewing it by hand. To round of the look I used lace trimming as straps as well for the edge of the back to finish it off perfectly.
