Rock and Roll Baby!!! – An original, alternative and tattooed wedding dress

Steph061Rock and Roll Baby!!

I love this shoot so much, it brings back so many memories of Sally (our embroidery genius and myself) excitedly  designing researching, being excited about launching the first and original tattooed wedding dress. It seems like a million years ago but at the same time only yesterday…. I thought when I came up with the design idea, ” I really don’t care if anybody likes it or “gets” it, I just wanna do it for me ” for me as a designer who wants to create truly bespoke and customised custom made and alternative wedding dresses, luckily for us the dress hit the mark for lots of ladies wanting a bespoke and tattooed wedding dress, so many awesome ideas and embroideries have happened for many awesome brides and below are just a small selection This shoot stars by beautiful gorgeous pal and muse Miss Stephanie May and was photographed by our good pal Steve Gerrard Photography. This will  always have a special place in our 24 year history for this dress we called Inkspiration and the lovely people we meet along the way xxxx

Tattoo inspired shoot, Up in lights, up on the roof, -Alternative wedding dresses and inspiration

the-couture-company-wedding-gowns-alternative-bepoke-quirky-unusual-dresses-tatt-light-leopard-mexican-jamball-assasynation (188)

One of the best things about our job is getting to work on epic projects like this with other alternative wedding creatives. All of the suppliers involved in this shoot we met at The Electic Wedding Extravaganza last year….. I saw the lights from Tatt light and the inspirations  went off like a light bulb in my head. I immediately spoke to Sassy and we got to work on pulling this fab team together :). Sassy and I had both been a part of our models Fran and Lewis’s weddding back in March, and just knew they would be perfect for this shoot!! We were so delighted when they agreed 🙂

So we went up to the roof of The Custard factory and created this tattoo inspired scene 🙂

Emily’s smokey grey dress was her all the way- A bespoke alternative wedding dress

Absolutely thrilled this week to have these awesome photographs by Chris Barber from Emily’s wedding!!!

We loved working with Emily on her wedding dress in creating something that was totally her!GrahamEmily-0292

We were really blown away by her wonderful testimonial

” I originally tried to find a dress on the high street, but after a couple of shopping trips I couldn’t find anything that felt special enough for my wedding day. ‘That’s it’, I thought, ‘I’m going to have to go to a proper wedding dress shop’. This was something I was dreading. I knew I didn’t want to wear white and wasn’t sure if I would feel myself in a traditional gown. Where was I going to find a dress that was unique, comfortable and reflected my personality?

Then, I remembered I had seen the Couture Company at the EWE wedding fair and liked the fact that they championed brides of all shapes and sizes and could cater for a wide range of style preferences. I made an appointment… and I’m so glad I did – as soon as I stepped inside the studio I knew I didn’t have to shop anymore, I had found what I was looking for! I told Jo my ideas and before I knew it she had drawn a beautiful little sketch of my dress. It was all very exciting.

I felt the skirt was a bit too long, so I picked up the material in a haphazard way and said, ‘Oh I quite like it when it looks messy’. Jo told me not to move and immediately started pinning and cutting – with me still in the dress! It was such a spontaneous moment and it was fantastic to be a part of the creative process like that. And, the end result? I couldn’t have asked for more – it was absolutely wonderful!

I think Jo and her team played a big part in the fact that I felt just like myself on my wedding day. I didn’t have to worry about the dress as I knew every inch had been carefully crafted. As we got married near the Couture Company studio we were even able to pop in on the day and thank Jo in person. It was lovely to surprise her and allow her to see her work in all its glory!
