After searching for a wedding dress in New York – “I think I must have tried every gown on in every New York atelier” – Lizzy journeyed to the Phillipa Lepley Shop and Conservatory on Fulham Road, Chelsea, opting for a bespoke couture gown.

After an initial video consultation, she attended a series of appointments at The Conservatory in Chelsea, London where her couture dress came to life, overseen and approved at every stage by Phillipa herself.

Drawing inspiration from the luxuriously clean and classic Phillipa Lepley silhouettes she fell in love with, Lizzy worked with the team of couture consultants to evolve the design to fit her vision.

“I love simple perfection, so for me, Phillipa was it. I knew I wanted something formal, elegant and dramatic for the big day.”

Lizzy’s dress was first mocked up as a calico toile to refine and perfect the shape. Subsequent silk fittings ensured a flawless fit, tailored precisely to her proportions.

Her chosen fabric, the finest ivory Italian duchess satin that Phillipa adores, draped elegantly over a signature internal corset. This marriage of fabric and structure resulted in a soft, yet refined, silhouette. Beautifully tied bows delicately graced her shoulders, a subtle touch of femininity.

For the ceremony, a dramatic bridal train cascaded from the back, held by petticoats that were thoughtfully detachable, allowing for an evening of dancing under the enchanting Puerto Rican stars.

At Phillipa Lepley, every nuance is a deliberate stroke of artistry. The placement of bows, the exquisite drape of satin over the hip – each element contributes to a harmonious ensemble that flatters and celebrates the bride.

 

“The details, the neckline, the train, the fabric – all of her attention to detail is one of a kind and impeccable.”
