A Floral 70s Inspired Dimity Gown

When Antoinette came to the Dimity studio in Blairgowrie, Randburg for her consultation, she told us she wanted a unique, non-traditional wedding dress. Antoinette's favourite singer is Stevie Nicks, who inspired the 1970's design that we constructed from her mother's own bridal gown. Dimity often completes orders where a bride wants us to incorporate her mom's or gran’s dress. For Antoinette’s bodice, we used the swirly embroidered lace and guipure lace leaves from her mother’s gown. These were also dotted on her dramatic bell sleeves which made her dress a true showstopper! To finish off her unique Dimity bridal gown, we printed a custom floral print onto her crepe skirt which added a touch of wildflower romance under her mom's vintage lace. The couple got married at the trendy, eclectic Katy’s Palace Bar in Sandton which perfectly matched Antoinette’s unconventional bridal style.

Serenade to a love song!

Earlier this year, Dimity was involved in a styled shoot filled with music, singing and a picturesque river setting. The shoot was at the forest venue at Toadbury Hall and was organised by Johannesburg-based destination-wedding planner, Weddings by Tasha. It was wonderful working with the inspiring models - The Voice SA star Josh Ansley and his gorgeous wife, Kerryn Ansley. She wore Dimity's Iris corset which features a scooped back and sumptuous embroidered beaded lace. The corset was paired with a tulle skirt adorned in antique filet lace and delicate hand-worked crochet details. This gorgeous shoot was also featured in Troukoors – follow this link to see more.
