Finding a dreamy wedding dress wasn’t the easiest task for Sophie, as she ended up trying on a whopping 30 or 40 dresses overall!
After realising that she was being drawn to similar styles of dress, Sophie thought that it would be better to get her dress handmade to suit her petite figure.
Sophie’s mum introduced her to her friend Dinah, a dress maker from Longland Couture, who the bride then worked closely with to create the design for her perfect wedding dress.
The finished design was a stunning 1930s style A-line dress made from champagne coloured satin, exquisitely decorated with a lace overlay, a v-neckline, cap sleeves and crystal beaded detail.
Sophie was delighted with her beautiful vintage dress which had contemporary elements to suit her curvy silhouette - the made to measure design fit her like a glove.
She paired the gorgeous dress with a pair of silver drop diamond earrings, bought by Tristan for the couple’s first Christmas, and an opal drop necklace which her parents gave to her on the big day.
A headdress from her grandmother and a waist length veil were the final flourishes.
As for her bridal beauty look, Sophie decided to go for an eye catching red lip and defined eyes to make her features really stand out – she even did her makeup herself after seeking advice from professional makeup counters!
Her dark hair was styled into a chic vintage updo by Jackie from Jago Hair, who also styled Sophie’s three bridesmaids and her mum too.
