Couture Charisma for the Discerning Bride..

Whether you are an amateur dressmaker or highly-skilled professional, Bridal Fabrics have got the right wedding dress material for YOU! We love receiving photographs and emails telling us about the fabulous wedding garments you have created using our material and the pictures you see here really blew us away! So who designed these amazing wedding gowns?

To find the brains behind the brides, we have to head all the way on over to Scotland in the United Kingdom, where we find Gemma Sargent - an extremely talented individual who hit the scene in 2008 when she opened her own couture design studio. There, she and her team specialize in creating bespoke bridalwear that is unique, exciting and has a very special flair - people from all over the world head straight for the studio when quality is of the ultimate importance.

It isn't just wedding gowns that the studio produce; customers who are able to visit the studio itself are able to browse a massive collection of ready-to-wear items, from jewelry and hairpieces to veils, belts sashes and other accessories. She works closely with an expert team of fashion and clothing graduates who are continually given new training opportunities to increase their knowledge of tailoring techniques such as corsetry.

The gowns created by Gemma Sargent and her team caught the attention of Whimsical Wonderland Weddings recently and a photo-shoot was organised by www.photographsbyeve.com Some of the results of that shoot are included right here for your viewing pleasure and some of our fabrics that were used to create them include:

  • Mimosa Beaded Lace Applique - these pairs of appliques were used throughout the bodice of the dress and also used in complementary fashion on the straps. Not to mention the delicacy and femininity of the Anna Chantilly Lace Trim, inculding the belt which features Equilibrium Crystal Appliqué

  • Sarah Ivory Lace - this is one of our favorites here at Bridal Fabrics, a gorgeous corded lace that blossoms with a floral design surrounded by swirling stems and luscious leaves. Identical borders frame the lace, which is available in both White and Ivory.

We would like to thank Gemma for sharing these pictures with us - they really took our breath away! If the pictures have whetted your appetite to create, then do not hesitate to check product pages for more details.

Five Years Ago, Something VERY Special Happened..

Katewedding lace

Time certainly does go by quickly – it has been five years since Prince William got married to his fiancée Kate Middleton over in England! We love a bit of Royal Family action here in the good old US of A and lots of us crowded around our TVs to watch the celebrations. Hard to believe that was half a decade ago, right!? Well let’s look back and remind ourselves of that fairytale romance…

The Couple Meet

College and University are both big meeting places for the love of our lives and it seems it’s no different if you’re one of the British aristocracy! William and Kate were both students at Saint Andrews University when their eyes met, though Kate had a partner at the time and the two were just friends. Things got a little more intimate when the two became roomies and Kate's current boyfriend dropped off the scene - pacing the way for William!

He made his move and asked Kate on holiday with him to a fancy skiing resort – what do you think she replied!? Of course, she went on the holiday and, after that, the two were clearly an item.

The Proposal

William popped the question a good few years later in 2010, announcing it to the world at a press conference. Looking excited and happy, the couple chatted about the proposal and said it was ‘very romantic’, taking place in beautiful Kenya where they were on a safari. Kate wore a gorgeous sapphire ring that belonged to Princess Diana and looked the picture of beauty.

The Dress!

Using Kate wedding lace along with three other varieties, the dress Kate wore at her wedding was a total stunner, with a lovely stain train, elegant sleeves. A blue ribbon was sewn into the bodice and her bouquet was made of four different flowers - one of these was myrtle, a tradition of royal brides in England for hundreds of years. Kate was compared to Grace Kelly, so classic was her look.

Happy fifth Anniversary to William and Kate – we think you guys are fabulous!
