This week’s Real Vintage Bride is darling Carolyn…
For her Hambleden wedding to Jim, Carolyn chose this fabulous 1960s mini wedding dress, by iconic 60s designer William Cahill.
The dress is a perfect example of swinging 60s style – in gorgeous lace with a flattering wide boat neck and swingy cape back. What a groovy bride!
We knew this was the right dress for Carolyn as soon as she tried it. In her words…
“I wanted to say a huge thank you for my beautiful Cahill dress. From the moment I tried it on it felt just right for the feel of for the wedding we wanted – beautiful and fun all at once. And I especially love that it came from such an important time for women.
The whole experience of choosing and fitting the dress with you and seamstress Grace was absolutely wonderful. Thank you again for being such a positive part of the whole wedding planning experience.”
Handsome groom Jim was rather fabulous too in his traditional kilt – perfect for a cosy country wedding…
Their day looks wonderful down to the last details. From Carolyn’s teal fur wrap, perfectly toning with Jim’s tartan, and even with the scrumptious nature-inspired cake made by talented bridesmaid Jenny!
And of course, one of the big advantages of a mini wedding dress – aside from being extremely fabulous and groovy – is there’s no holding back on the dance floor!
Happy days. Congratulations Carolyn and Jim!
