Spring Floral Bespoke Bridal Jacket for Bride Sophie’s Wedding

Congratulations to bride Sophie who got married on 2nd April 2016. We at Natalya James Bridal thoroughly enjoyed making the bespoke spring floral bridal jacket for her as pictured below which was made specifically to tie in with her spring floral wedding theme. We have also received the following review from Sophie and are thrilled to bits by how much she loved her jacket and I’m sure you’ll agree but we think she looks amazing 🙂 🙂

Bridal Jacket by Natalya James – Review by Sophie Barker Natalya was recommended to me by my parents who are friends with her parents. I was immediately struck by her beautiful designs on her website and had no hesitation in asking for a quote to make my slightly different bridal jacket. Having seen the pictures I sent she took to work designing a gorgeous jacket and she helped me find the best material. Natalya also worked measurement and fittings around my busy pre-wedding schedule and different location to herself. My jacket arrived with lots of time to spare before the wedding and I immediately loved it. Even though I was nervous about what others would think of its bright colours I knew it would work perfectly with my dress and my wedding theme. I wore it after the ceremony for our reception and as soon as I put it on everyone thought it looked amazing, I had so many compliments and people asking who had made it, it certainly made a beautiful impact on our lovely day. I cannot recommend Natalya James highly enough – had she lived closer or I had had more time I would’ve definitely asked her to make my dress as well as my stunning jacket. Thank you so much!

Natalya James Lace and Pearl Wedding Dress from Castle Ashby Photoshoot

Natalya James is excited to finally be able to share the images from the photoshoot at Castle Ashby Gardens in the Fall last year. The Alice 1930’s inspired dress was re-shot in this wonderful location and a new addition to the collection the beautiful Emily wedding dress was photographed for the first time. The Emily wedding dress is a stunning dress made of luxury ivory duchess satin with intricate gold and ivory lace detailing at the top of the dress. The lace is decorated with tiny beads and pearls and is accentuated with the exquisite open back and strings of pearls. The Emily wedding dress also has a beautiful train extending from the dress as it flares out from just above the knees accentuating the figure.

The long wait is over!!! The brand new wedding dress designs, I am so excited to say, are completed and here are the images from the recent shoot with thanks to a fabulous model Harriet on location in Wellingborough Northamptonshire. The first bridal dress is an elegant corseted, pleated satin and chiffon asymmetrical dress with a sweetheart neckline and beautiful gold lace trim detailing.

The second wedding dress was inspired by 1930’s fashions and art deco patterns with the heavily beaded bodice adding a vintage touch and feeling of opulence. It is made using 100% silk with the pink outer layer contrasting beautifully against the ivory layer underneath.
