Martin Thornburg bride Charmayne found her floral wedding dress in “Orabelle” a strapless, floral printed burnout organza over satin ball gown. From the smile on her face, it’s obvious she found “the one.” Her dress is no longer available, however “Flora” is. Somewhat similar, “Flora” features embroidered Schiffli lace floral appliqués of pale green, pink and ivory atop a strapless organza ballgown. Find YOUR dream dress here. Charmayne’s words below:
“For as long as I can remember I have always wanted a floral wedding dress, I trawled the shops for months trying to find one. Then one day whilst trying on dresses at The Bridal Rooms in Uttoxettor I saw a dress out of the corner of my eye. The moment I saw it I fell in love, I didn’t even have to try it on I just knew it was the one. The dress was Orabelle by Martin Thornburg. Everything about the dress was perfect I snapped it up instantly.
The dress was so usual and different I wanted to theme everything around it. The dress had ribbon on it so we incorporated this into our center pieces and table plan and because of the colours in the dress we made our cake bright and colourful too. The ribbon on the dress was green this same colour was matched for the groom to wear and his groomsmen wore pink to match the bridesmaids and the colours in the dress.
Everyone complemented the dress saying how beautiful it looked and how different it was from the usual white dresses. My dress has been cleaned and is currently hung in my wardrobe and I wish I could wear it all day every day. It is simply beautiful.”
