A Dazzling Bride!

How incredible does Edel look in her Dirty Fabulous fully beaded, cream 1950's wiggle dress. 
The bead-work on this dress was to die for, it was so intricate and must have taken forever to complete!
The great thing about this dress is that it can be worn again and again for other special occasions.
Edel topped off her look with one of our bespoke headpieces.
Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!
