Day of the Dead Wedding

This year I was honoured to make a wedding dress for beautiful bride Alexa. Alexa and Stephen were married on Saturday 2nd of July and their wedding had a unique Day of the Dead inspired theme.

Alexa’s dress is made from white taffeta with a black chiffon overlay and ruching on the bodice. I also made her vintage style bolero using some beautiful scalloped edged lace.

Alexa and Stephen were married in a traditional Mexican ceremony.  I made them this zebra print lasso which was tied around them in a figure eight. This symbolically ties the couple in matrimony.

I also made this red taffeta swing dress for bridesmaid Sarah!

Their adorable page boy Christopher had his hair spiked up to match the groom! I made his cute zebra print shirt.

Alexa is a talented pastry chef and she made these wonderful cupcakes for the wedding. The Day of the Dead cake toppers came from Mexico.

Alexa’s dress started out as a pencil sketch many months ago, and it was a very exciting process creating the dress to her specifications. Alexa & Stephen’s wedding was as awesome and individual as they are and it was amazing to be able to help bring their ideas to life.

Hardcore Genki Wedding

My good friends Andy & Laura got married on Friday 13th May. It was a beautiful wedding! I had another go at making a quilt for their wedding gift. It’s a small-ish picnic blanket size. I tried to cover both of their interests in the fabrics I chose. They are both DJ’s, they love their cats and Laura is a manga artist!

Rolled up with a gift tag made from some cute sweetie packaging, an idea I got from the Hello Sandwich Gift Wrapping Zine. ^_^

It was a beautiful day for a wedding and everyone looked fantastic! Laura’s dress was stunning! ❤
