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

My kind of Flower Show

HelloFlower details

I’ve been watching The Chelsea Flower Show on tv tonight and getting inspired by all  things flowery.

Much as I might aspire to being a gardener I’m afraid my talents (and my time) are very limited.

I do plant up all the window boxes on the shop front but I confess I’m thinking more along the lines of ‘Please dont die!’ and crossing my fingers rather than expecting them to win a gold medal.

The flowers that I am far more at home with though are these. Hand made silk flowers –  used here to embellish the back of a bustle.


MMC-Roseanna1We make these flowers ourselves in the workroom and as you can imagine they’re quite time consuming. Totally worth it though when they are this pretty and feminine!

This Wedding Gown is called Roseanna and as you can see it has quite a generous number of flowers. If you want more though, and like the idea of an entire Flower Show to follow you up the aisle, you only have to ask. Just like everything else we make, every single detail is customisable to create the dress of your dreams.

The other good thing about these blooms is of course, they last for ever!

Now thats my kind of ‘gardening’

Love Maria xx
