How adding embellishment can make your wedding outfit completely unique

Jan Knibbs at Atelier 19 Cheltenham…

“Your wedding day is the one day in your life when you can be completely unique and indulge your little idiosyncrasies. You may be having a themed wedding or you may just have a strong idea of what you want to wear but be struggling to find it. 

I specialise in couture embroidery and embellishment and won the Embroidery category in the British Bridal Awards. I create bespoke dresses with the emphasis on embroidery which are a bit quirky and individual at my little atelier in Cheltenham (Atelier 19) but obviously that comes at a price. A more economical possibility is to find a dress that you love the shape of either old or new and add some embellishment. As I use some of the same embroidery techniques as the top couture houses you can look like you’ve stepped off the page of Vogue at a fraction of the cost.

If you have ordered a dress online and on arrival you find it rather plain and not quite right, it can be embellished and added to to make it more ‘you’. Suzanne, whose wedding was featured here, had already bought a dress but when it arrived it was too short and to be honest a bit ordinary. Suzanne came to me not really knowing what she

Feeling inspired by recording artist Melanie Martinez and an art mural on a semi-busy street, I wanted to do something super colorful, fun, and with a hint of child-like nostalgia (who doesn’t remember trying their best to blow the biggest bubble?). Eastern Market was the perfect location for this as it houses street art from various talents around the country. Due to the area we were able to play with loads of colors and textures which made for something fun and something to remember.

Would you believe that I found these amazing vendors via a Facebook group and Instagram?!

Olivia from Copper + Sage Collective created a beautiful bouquet beyond what I could’ve imaged. Using silk flowers and feathers she created pure art with various shades of pinks, red, and a hint of blue here and there. One of my favorite things about her bouquet is you can easily keep it as a keepsake, turn them into a family heirloom, or repurpose them.
