TRUST THE PROCESS – KOSIBAH BRIDE DENISE.

The creation of Kosibah Bride Denise’s bridal gown from sketch to destination wedding.

Denise, the Birmingham based photographer behind Lensi , had a clear vision of where her wedding was going to take place and how she wanted her dress to look like. The wedding was to take place at the fabulous Villa Balbiano, an awe-inspiring property on the western shore of Lake Como, Italy.

Denise wanted one of my figure enhancing fishtail bridal gowns with a strapless bodice and a full tulle skirt with a dramatic cathedral length train. She was especially particular about the 3D Lace appliques that were to embellish the gown and after seeking options in the UK and US, the Lace piece from which the appliques were harvested was sourced and purchased from Australia.

The appliques were cut out from the Lace piece and further embellished in the Kosibah atelier with Swarovski diamante crystals. These were the hand stitched unto the bodice of glitter Lace fabric with a duchesse satin underlay.

The gown had a built in corset laced up at the back and with a zipper with decorative fabric backed buttons.

The ensemble was completed with a cathedral length plain tulle veil.

Wedding Location – Lake Como, Italy.

TRUST THE PROCESS – KOSIBAH BRIDE KIYERAN

Kiyeran was very clear about two aspects of her couture bridal gown when I sat down with her at our first consultation together…. She wanted drama at the back of her gown and a very low back.

Both goals were achieved with her corseted gown in champagne silk duchesse satin and ivory beaded lace appliques, with a sheath skirt silhouette in the front of the gown a dramatic ruffles at the back leading to a chapel train. The skirt train was designed to be bustled up to create a different look for the wedding Reception and for ease of movement during dancing.

The look was completed with a tulle cathedral length veil.

Location – One Gt George Street , London, UK.

Today September 1st 2022 marks exactly 31 years Kosibah was established as a business. To celebrate that, I share with you the creation of Kosibah Real Bride Simi’s couture bridal gown from sketch to wedding day.

Designing and creating Simi’s couture bridal gown was very special to me because she is my niece. I went to see her in hospital the day after she was born and I said to her mother I hoped to make her wedding dress whenever she decided to get married.

Simi wore a strapless gown with a trumpet silhouette skirt in duchesse satin  with an organza overlay featuring a high hemline in front and a cathedral length train edged with Swarovski embellished beaded scalloped lace. Hand-cut lace appliques were also strategically placed on the bodice and Bothe the underlay and overlay fabrics of the gown.

Simi’s tulle cathedral veil had the same lace appliques running down from the comb and around the edge.

Location: London, UK.
