New Collection Preview

We are so excited to be working on our new Collection! We’re not ready to reveal it to you all just yet but here’s little tease of one of our gorgeous new Wedding Dress designs.

This is our ‘Giselle’ gown which has a soft, boho, vintage-inspired look. A layer of ribbon edged, sheer chiffon is a feature of the bodice and looks delicate and feminine. The body of the gown is soft and fluid and has a traditional full length, floor sweeping hem line.

The gorgeous fabric is an absolute show stopper – fluid and delicate but lavishly embroidered with shiny iridescent sequins. The light catches this beautifully and whether you plan your ceremony for day time sunshine, artificial evening lights or candlelight this is a stunning choice.

Perfect to ensure that absolutely all eyes are on the Bride!

Hope you like it xx

Beauty is only skin deep

Maria Morris Couture-37Hello

I thought I’d share a minor obsession of mine – a well made dress should look good on the inside, as well as the outside!

In the case of Couture clothes, beauty has to be a lot more than skin deep. It has to be built into every single stitch. The reasons are quite simple – it wont wear well if it’s not constructed properly. A poorly made dress might look great on the hanger, and it might be ok when you first try it on, but you want to be looking as good at the end of your special occasion as you do at the start. Nothing should itch or rub, and the dress or it’s lining shouldn’t twist when you wear it. The bones shouldn’t poke through, or feel like they’re just about to.

For your most special occasions it’s vital that you get to relax and have fun while you look fabulous. That means knowing that your dress has been constructed properly so look under the surface, and make sure that beauty isnt only skin deep…

If you click on these images of our Kitty Dress you should be able to zoom right in, but if you want to see the quality first hand do please come to see us.

Love Maria xx

A quote from a Client

Bev RossThis 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.

Love Maria xx

Grown Up Glamour for a Mature Bride

2015 Tony Awards - Arrivals

Hello

How AMAZING does Helen Mirren look? She’s 69 (I had to check and can scarely believe it!) and looks incredible. This dress is a gorgeous choice for her – and would be amazing for a mature Bride, or for anyone who wants to rock a red carpet or other special occasion.

I love the fact that she’s choosing carefully what flesh to show – so upper arms are discreetly covered but the decollete is beautifully shown off. Sexy AND smart!

If you’d like a dress inspired by Helens choice get in touch – I’d love to help you bring your vision to life!

Love Maria xx

Design your own Dress

Michelle

Hello

Congratulations to Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright on their recent Wedding. The Dress has just been revealed in the press and I was really pleased to see that Michelle designed it herself.

She was inspired by some other dresses she’d seen, including the Oscar de la Renta gown which Amal Alamuddin wore when she became Mrs George Clooney last year.

She said: “She (Amal) looked amazing, gorgeous. That was the one that stood out for me. I couldn’t find one that I really liked so instead I took inspiration from various aspects of dresses I loved and it’s been made for me.”

Now obviously I’m a bit biased because thats the service that we offer all our Brides (and Mothers of the Bride, and the Groom, and everyone else too!) but I really do think that everyone deserves THEIR perfect dress. Not someone elses vision of it.

Love Maria xx

PS – I wonder if possibly she was inspired by our ‘Grace’ dress too? (below) Lol. Just a thought 🙂

The Sparkle Fairy!

Isabella GownHello

Our lovely Donna finished work last week to start her Maternity leave.

Donna is our head ‘Sparkle Fairy’ and a wizard when it comes to beautiful embellishment. She’s temporarily handed over the keys to the sequin, crystal, bead and pearl vault though – we have to make sure that no-one is left without bling while she gets on with the important business of having a baby!

This is an example of Donna’s exquisite hand beading on our Isabella Gown.

Donna has very meanly refused to tell us if she’s having a boy or a girl and just smiles sweetly every time we ask. Anyone would think she was enjoying keeping us guessing! The sweepstake to guess the date, the weight and the sex of the baby is therefore being hotly contested and the winner is going to walk away with untold riches (About fifteen quid!) so we’re all on the edges of our seats.

Not long to wait now though! (Come on 18th of May, 7.5lbs, GIRL!!!) Best Wishes Donna, we miss you…

Love Maria and the Team xx
