Design your own Mother of the Bride outfit
I have a truly stunning Mother of the Bride to share with you today!
This is the lovely Margaret in her very own, bespoke designs. Her dress is a variation on our Amanda style. This flattering shape with side swept pleats suits almost every one. Margaret wanted her dress cut with a sweetheart neckline so we were delighted to oblige. She chose a Silver Pure Silk Dupion fabric with a contrasting shade of Turquoise Pure SIlk Dupion for the highlights.
Margaret also chose two jackets for the two separate celebrations – the first is a longer length version of our Evie jacket in Pure Silk Dupion. The jacket collar facing and lining was in Turquioise silk and the sleeve buttons are Swarovski crystal. The second jacket is a panelled variation on our Lola jacket in a heavily embroidered beaded lace in a darker shade of silver.
Naturally the waist embellishment on the dress had to match each look so we made it removable. To cordinate with Silk jacket there is a matching bow with contrast lining and a diamante brooch, and for the lace jacket a lace bow with a different brooch.
Every detail of these pieces was chosen by Margaret to be exactly what she wanted and we loved guiding her through all the choices. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures of your family and gorgeous daughter Margaret. You can see more images below
Autumn Wedding Fashion
It’s decidedly chilly here today so I’m sharing a picture of a dress and jacket that would be perfect for an Autumn Wedding. Dressing can be tricky for those times that might fall ‘between’ when the weather can be unreliable – and lets face it, in the UK that can mean pretty the entire year!
This exclusive design is called ‘Cheryl’ and its shown here in Silk Tweed. This fabric is soft and fluid but also cosy and warm. Put out of your head any thoughts of traditional scratchy tweed, you can feel the silk in this fabric and it’s gentle on the skin and incredibly luxurious. This sample has hand appliqued lace in a shade that picks up on one of the soft melange of colours in the fabric. The SIlk Tweed is available in a beautiful range of colours but this design would also work beautifully in lots of other fabrics too. We’d be delighted to show you the options for your perfect, personalised design when you visit us for a Consultation.
Just like all of our designs though, you can choose your own fabric from our huge collections of samples and the colour, style and all the details can be tailored to your exact requirements.
For extra warmth we’ve added one of our gorgeous Maribou stoles in soft pastel silver grey. Our maribou is supremely soft, fluffy and lavish for absolute luxury. It’s not only for warmth though – it also adds gorgeous elegance and glamour!
Hope you like it
This is the beautiful Bev Ross at her recent Wedding. She had a unique celebration that was full of details that made it special for her and her new Husband. She wrote us this lovely message which has left us all very touched.
“I just wanted to thank you again. I can’t believe how amazing I felt in my dress. And there isn’t one picture of me in it when I wish I was thinner or taller or anything, and that’s down to your amazing work and the whole emotional experience you gave me.
You have no idea how important it was.”
Thank you so much Bev! It was an absolute priviledge to be part of your special day.

This is another of our brand new exclusive designs. It’s just been finished and this is a quick snap of it on display on a mannequin in the Studio.
It has slightly cutaway shoulders and a key hole decollette finished with a swarovski crystal button. The fitted mermaid, or fishtail shape is fitted to the body and then flares out into a beautiful full hem.
The fabric is stunning – sheer tulle embroidered with sequins, beads and flowers in shades of blue, turquoise, silver and green over a blue satin under layer.
As usual with a new design we had a debate about what to call her. This one has been christened ‘Ariel’ after Ariel the Little Mermaid, one of Disney’s Princesses. It’s a terrible pun – but a gorgeous dress!
Hope you like it.
Love Maria xx
Another gorgeous picture of another gorgeous Maria Morris Couture Bride arrived today! This is Amy and her handsome Groom sharing their first dance. The official pictures are to follow – but what a wonderful moment to capture.
Thank you for sharing Amy!

We just received these pictures from Anita. Doesn’t she look amazing? This is absolutely how you do Grown Up Glamour!
This is our Hollie Dress – a cocktail dress in pure silk with long vertical panels and a contrasting piping that can be worn on or off the shoulder. Anita chose to pair it with a jacket in deep rose silk – a beautiful and very sophisticated combination.
Theres another picture of Anita below, and I’ve also put a picture of our model, Eli, wearing the dress too so you can see the sleek lines.
Thank you so much for sharing your pictures Anita, you look stunning!
