Olivia’s South African Wedding
Olivia chose a couture bridal look that perfectly suited her individual style and her beautiful wedding setting in South Africa. A quirky combination of lace and silk with a touch of colour, it was incredibly unique and yet completely classic.
The dress was slim fitted and strapless with an overlay of Chantilly lace heavily embroidered at the neckline and hem. A hidden signature Phillipa Lepley corset formed the base of the silhouette, giving incredible definition around the waist, whilst the overlay ensured the overall effect was soft and graceful. A silk slipper satin sash in pale lilac completed the look.
Olivia styled her couture wedding dress with a silk tulle veil that was decorated with embroidered coloured flowers in shades of pink, purple, beige and green. The lace, the lilac sash and the floral embroidery on the veil worked perfectly in harmony together.
“I loved my dress and loved the service and care I received at the store. Everyone loved my dress especially Jaan and I felt beautiful in it and it really suited the romantic charm of our African farm wedding.” (Olivia, March 2017)
