Chris and I had an absolutely amazing day on 4th July and that was made so much better with the beautiful flowers from you Alice, the fab venue Barbara, the absolutely stunning dress from Sabina (I had so many compliments & comparisons to Pippa M!) and the hair was fantastic Ellie and stayed in all day, with the make-up also looking spotless and so natural.

Thanks again,

Zoe bought her dress from our lovely stockist, The Dress (Teddington) and has been featured on Boho Bride blog. Read on for more details about this wedding here.

The wedding dress and accessories
My dress by Sabina Motasem from The Dress in Teddington, a lovely little boutique. Shoes were Ginger by Rachel Simpson, recommended by a friend and I got to wear them on honeymoon too.

The suit and bridesmaids
Luke wanted to buy matching suits for the groomsmen so he spent ages on the phone sourcing different sizes of the same Red Herring @ House of Fraser suit from across the country.
We chose the first dress my bridesmaids tried on, Matthew Williamson Butterfly at Debenhams. With fur collars from Urban Outfitters.

The theme
Cream colour scheme with some black and red accents. Theme in mind was loosely 40’s glamour. I wanted vintage but elegance.

The flowers
Cream roses, ranunculas, gpysophilia, thyme.

The decoration
Very simple as the venues are quite decorative in themselves. Just low vases of gyp on the tables, some tea lights, rose petals and storm candles.

I wanted something simple and elegant, and ended up returning to 1930s and 20s style designs. After an incredibly long journey, I eventually opted for the slinky Josephine style dress from London based designer Sabina Motasem. I had a vintage style hair accessory ordered from a website rather amusingly called Glitzy Secrets, which my friend chose for me, as she was doing my hair. The long, delicate veil we also got from Motasem.

The Venue… Ardanaiseig hotel in Oban, Scotland. We chose the venue relatively early on – we had stayed there before, and we knew we didn’t want a Church wedding, and were quite happy to have somewhere that could accommodate only around 60 people. We had fallen in love with Ardanaiseig, and its spectacular scenery and shabby chic interiors fitted perfectly with our idea of romance. As I was working for a food magazine, the cuisine was also a very big aspect of the choice as we knew the food at the hotel to be absolutely top notch from when we had stayed there.

Finding the Dress… After exhausting the whole of Dubai’s wedding shops, I eventually came to terms with the fact that I was going to have to go home to go wedding dress shopping in order to find something I liked. I didn’t want to spent a fortune, but I wanted it to be special, but I also wanted it to be understated and simple. My mum eventually stumbled upon Sabina Motasem’s website.

We arranged a visit to her home in East London and I tried on some of the designs and chose the Josephine – finally something elegant and simple, well-made in a gorgeous material that I could afford. She was also really accommodating about alterations – the likes of Browns said that they had to be done 6 weeks in advance and they would cost hundreds of pounds, but I couldn’t afford the time to have to come home again, nor the money. Sabina agreed to do any alterations with just 24 hours notice, when I popped home just days before the wedding!

Hi Sabina,

Your dress got me through my wedding day yesterday in style! Now a married lady! Could not have felt happier and more beautiful! Sabina you are a genius - anyone who gets married needs a Sabina Motasem dress!!!! So many people complimented me on the dress…..you need to start making evening wear…..lots of people wanted to know if you did! I would be a definite customer!

It was an amazing day – really really amazing and the photos really capture the days laid back atmosphere! It was exactly how we wanted some might say ‘The Anti-wedding’ very little tradition, no pomp and ceremony but lots of happiness and laughter.

Thank you!!!!

Hi Sabina

I hope you're well.

I just wanted to email to say a big THANK YOU again for your wedding dress, which I finally had the pleasure of wearing last Sunday! It was super-comfortable and I felt very relaxed wearing it. Got loads of compliments - my favourite of which was 'you look stunning, really natural' - which is exactly what I was hoping for, so thank you :)

All the best with your business, will definitely be recommending you.

Best wishes,

Zoe

Hi Sabina,

I found my Belle dress in Hale and had the pleasure of meeting you on a couple of occasions on the up run to our wedding.

Where do I begin? I honestly don't have the words to thank you enough. I have never felt as elegant and beautiful as I did in your beautiful gown. Our day was absolutely perfect and my gorgeous dress was a huge part of that.

When I first began looking for a dress I started to believe that, although I would no doubt end up with a lovely, well made, beautiful dress, it wasn't my destiny to feel 'bridal' and that I would most likely not feel completely myself on the big day. And then I found you. Your dresses, your vision and talent, is everything I was looking for and my choice of the Belle dress meant I got to feel beautiful, radiant and graceful but still very much me. I can't tell you how important that was to me and my husband (I think he had started to worry he wouldn't recognise me!).

I love that dress. I really, truly do. Thank you. For designing it in the first place and then for all your insight and advice that made it 'my dress'. And I haven't even mentioned the slide, belt and the life saving underwear advice you gave me!! Just brilliant.

I am thrilled to see your collection appearing around the media more and more and wish you every success in the future, you deserve it - what you do is wonderful and beautiful and you're making many women blissfully happy!

One last thing - I will be eternally grateful for the look on my husbands face when he first set eyes on me at the top of the aisle. I will never, ever forget that. Thank you.

Lots of love, health and happiness,
Laura

To Sabina,

I was lucky enough to find your Alaya dress in Swoon, West Byfleet and fell completely in love with it. I tried on several of your dresses in also and enjoyed the experience so much. Your dresses are beautifully made and the compliments I received on my wedding day made a perfect day even better. 

I thought I would share a few pictures with you and take the opportunity to say thank you.

Dearest Sabina,

Thank you SO much again for all your help with making the perfect dress for my wedding day. You were so wonderful to work with and a pleasure throughout. It was an added bonus to have you there in person on the day itself and I'm so glad! 

Thank you for listening so carefully to what I wanted and for cleverly adapting your existing design to make something unique. It was really, really special.

As you know, we've been waiting ages for photos but I've finally uploaded some of the best so please feel free to use any of the images

Thanks so much lovely!

Hi Sabina

I'm just writing to say a huge and belated thank you for my beautiful, amazing wedding dress.  I have been waiting to write until we got the professional photos back and they arrived last week.

I had so many lovely complements and quite a few people said it was the most beautiful wedding dress they had ever seen.  
I felt so comfortable in it all day and it was genius being able to bustle it for dancing (people kept asking me how I'd done it!)

Anyway thanks once again, you are a talented designer and a lovely person who made me, my mum and my bridesmaids feel so welcome at the dress fittings.

Hi Sabina,

Hope you are well.  We have just had our professional photos through so I thought I'd send them to you so that you could see your wonderful dress.  Please feel free to use them if you wish.

Having looked for a dress for so long, I was beginning to think that I would never find one!  I knew as soon as I saw your web site that one of them would be perfect as I loved them all.  I really enjoyed all my visits to Haggerston as you made us feel so welcome.  My Belle dress was exactly what I was looking for and everyone loved it.

Good luck for the future.  I'm sure that your business will go from strength to strength as your designs are all so beautiful.

Thanks again

Hello Sabina,

I hope you are well.

Well we are back from Vegas after having the best wedding I could have dreamed of. I have attached som images of the dress as I thought you might like to see it in action. I have lots more too...over 1500!

So many people stopped me to ask who the designer was and said how stunning they thought the dress was. And everyone who watched at home and who have seen the pictures, are just amazed at how beautiful the dress is.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for creating this dress for me. I honestly felt like it was designed just for me and felt like a special princess for the day. You made my dreams come true. Thank you.

I just wanted to say thank you for your beautiful dress.  When I wore it I felt like a completely different person: someone elegant and stylish which is not what I usually feel!  I had so many compliments about your dress on the day.

I have attached a couple of pictures from the photographer which I hope will do your dress justice.

Many thanks once again,
