Egoli Styled Shoot

The colour gold exudes elegance, luxury and glamour. Johannesburg is known as the City of Gold and what better place to have a styled shoot than Emoyeni in the heart of the city. Dimity worked with an incredible team of wedding industry suppliers and we all had one goal in mind: to explore the colour gold. 

From the gold leaf makeup to the minimalist jewellery, this shoot highlighted the glamour and boldness of the precious metal. Our Tulle Bi Telli dress from the Dimity EcoBride collection is an ivory and gold gown, constructed from organic cotton sateen and Egyptian tulle hand-embellished with metal pieces. Zero-waste pattern-cutting was used to create this Eco-friendly bridal gown; meaning there is no off-cut fabric waste generated from the making of the dress. We hope to inspire your Jozi wedding dreams with these stunning photographs.

Bridal Hairpiece Competition

In July this year, Dimity Bridal Studio exhibited at the Oakfield Farm Bridal Expo. We ran a competition for one lucky bride to win a one-of-a-kind bridal hairpiece. Siphumelele won our 1950's inspired fascinator with a silk taffeta bow. She wore it on her big day and looked stunning!

Enchanting forest elopement

Dimity EcoBride, Annemieke, was married in the beautiful forests of Magoebaskloof, Limpopo in May 2017. The gown, hand-crafted at the Dimity Bridal Studio in Johannesburg, embodied the EcoBride principles of sustainability and truly matched the gorgeous forest setting. Annemieke's gown featured nude texturised crepe georgette and tulle. The corsetted bodice was embellished with vintage French Chantilly lace and guipure leaves, as well as antique Egyptian tulle. It was  finished off with an exposed lace-up and a dramatic train.  The addition of custom made tassels added a sense of whimsy to her Dimity EcoBride gown.

Helping a bride in need!

Generally a bride will visit the Dimity studio about 6-8 months before her wedding day, to start the process of creating her one-of-a-kind designer gown. However, there have been orders which we completed in just under a month! Megan came to us through a referral weeks before her wedding due to an unforeseen issue with the previous designer. We were very happy to help her and due to our flexible design process, we were able to accommodate the short time-frame.

Megan’s bespoke wedding gown was constructed from a luxurious satin and featured a fully corseted bodice. Her bodice was adorned in delicate French Chantilly lace, dotted mesh and a floral scallop. We also designed her bridal accessories including a dramatic cathedral veil, rose gold garter and crystal belt. Megan’s belt was created from soft pink silk satin, embellished with her lace flowers, pink crystals and rose gold Swarovski crystals to match her engagement ring. Megan’s Dimity wedding dress was finished off with a gorgeous long train -  she looked radiant on her wedding day in Pretoria!

Pastel Spring Styled Shoot

Dimity was involved in a gorgeous pastel spring styled shoot earlier this year at the picturesque Bell Amour Wedding Venue in Pretoria. Our whimsical Iris skirt paired beautifully with the Boho Chantilly lace blouse and Camille crop. This delicate lace ensemble complimented the pastel décor, flowers and cake. We had such fun with the team of professional suppliers and hope to inspire your spring wedding plans in 2018.
