A champagne ballgown for a redhead

If you’re a natural redhead blessed with creamy skin and a sprinkling of freckles, then you’ll love this champagne-coloured ball gown wedding dress worn by real bride Fiona.

This dress is elegant simplicity itself, and perfectly complements Fiona’s complexion. Based on the Caroline gown from the Enchanting Collection, Elbeth customised this gown slightly to make Fiona’s dream dress. Made of champagne-coloured dupoin silk, the full skirt and guipure lace-overlaid bodice are truly timeless. The slightly darker lace overlay is a striking detail all on its own. A twisted sparkling trim perfectly accents Fiona’s waist.

Fiona and Mark-Ross were married at Towerbosch, just outside Stellenbosch. We recommend looking at the photos of their wedding, because the details captured by the photographer are evidence of the couple’s creativity and the venue’s appeal. We especially loved how the cake perfectly matched the elegance of Fiona’s wedding dress!

We love hearing what our real brides have to say about their dresses, because that makes all the hard work worthwhile. Fiona says, “I just wanted to let you know that our wedding was fantastic and  I absolutely adored my dress! I just didn’t want to take it off after the evening was finished. My husband loved the dress as well and I received many compliments. Thank you so much for making such an incredible dress for me!”
