Real Bride: Caron's beaded backless Wedding dress

The creation of Carons beaded backless wedding dress was quite possibly, the kind of dress that you love when its done, but during the engineering process of making it work, it challenged everything I thought I knew about wedding dress design - even back then.

As with every bespoke wedding dress that we create, the process has never been done before - not in that fabric, not with the brides specific requests, not with those specific measurements - meaning that every seam and every detail is meticulously constructed, one seam at a time.

This is what makes the making of a bespoke wedding dress so very special and a incredible once-in-a-lifetime acheivement for many brides that we have worked with over the years. It is a remarkable journey of self discovery and the fulfillment of a dream that simply has to be experienced in order to fully appreciate the excitement and joy that is attained by the bride who will wear it.

A Backless Wedding Dress Fit for a Princess

Caron's beaded backless wedding dress was crafted in a pure silk duchess satin featuring a draped skirt that was the height of bridal fashion at the time. The draped skirt flattered Caron's tiny frame, whilst the internal corsetry provided both confidence and the perfect silhouette that every bride desires on her big day.

We pride ourselves entirely on the high standards of attention, care and impeccable craftsmanship that underpins each of our lovingly hand-crafted gowns; and nothing delights us more than to know that our brides are thoroughly delighted with the finished product.
