Juliet’s wedding took place in the woods in Wiltshire, England at Brounker’s Court Farm. Her wedding guests sat on buck stools and hay bales. She was barefoot and her groom wore a pink chrysanthemum in his suit pocket.
Prior to the wedding Juliet was looking for a “green” wedding gown. As CEO of a sustainable energy company she was designing an eco-wedding party and needed the perfect eco wedding dress. She found Tara Lynn Bridal online and was inspired by the colorful handmade embellishments.
Juliet dreamed up this wonderful idea to have flower fairies on her wedding gown. She custom ordered Fiorella and Tara Lynn began researching flower fairies for inspiration.
Her eco wedding gown was made of hemp silk satin. This Fiorella dress was embellished with embroidered flower fairies; each fairy climbing, swinging or dancing on its flower.
About the art work process…
Tara Lynn starts by creating a collage of inspiration, images, pictures, textures and colors. Then she makes little patterns of all the petals, wings and parts. After the fabrics are selected and cut the tiny pieces are machine appliquéd onto fabric remnants. The appliqués are placed in embroidery hoops and the details hand embroidered or sometimes painted. Once the details are complete the appliqués are cut out, placed on your gown for approval and stitched down, by hand. Working with Tara Lynn on the creation and development is a fun creative process.
