I love it when bride’s know exactly what they want, or don’t won’t, in this case: Lucy knew she did not want a white dress. In the end, she had this golden showstopper custom-made by Guillermo Couture in New York and it certainly turned out amazing! A wonderful elegant counterpoint to their rustic wedding in Spain, celebrated at one my favorite venues, l’Avellana Mas den Cabré, and photographed by Raquel Benito. This post is to show off the dress, if you want to see more details of the wedding, go here.
The bride about the wedding: “We were living in New York. Trying to organise a wedding in Spain when your parents live in New Zealand and your bridesmaids/groomsmen live in London and Melbourne was a little challenging. But Katinka, the owner of l’Avellana, the venue, made things so easy and really just did everything!”
The bride about her dress: “The only thing I knew was that I didn’t want it to be white. I searched around for Oscars dresses to try to get ideas and ended up finding one to use as a model. I was so lucky to find a fantastic designer in New York where we were living and the whole process was really fun. Guillermo was so great to work with and totally understood what I wanted – and then made it happen. He was totally into the idea that the bodice should be made of leather – he loved it!”
