~Sophia & Rob~



The request~
"I enclose pics of us when we met in 1992 (we are trying to recapture this look and love for our wedding)"...



..."our wedding colours are a very light ivory (like the dress) and light blue...we would need his crop and my feathercut to be shown...
basically this (below) will be added to my dress like a bolero jacket, the arms go down in a point to my middle knuckle with a split, and there will be 8 little covered buttons on each side of each arm's opening...
for the veil it is a long cathedral length one that goes past the dress, and it has a blusher tier...
I am having all large white roses and some dark green ivy and rosemary with just 3 or 4 large Scottish blue thistles here and there...
I will likely be having a pale pink blush lipstick for a 60s look and super heavy 60s eyeliner on the day...
tattoos on his wrists...blue suit, blue paisley cravat, the matching hankie will be in one sharp triangle point in the chest pocket...
yellow gold rings"...

The couple's cat was to be their ring bearer in...
"navy pinstripe with light sky blue satin pocket detail. He will also have a matching light blue satin bowtie in front. He has light green eyes and is all white"...

They chose the cheeky "Main Squeeze" topper, and I found a proportionate kitty.
Here's what I came up with...



I added a three-dimensional feathercut to the bride, and some slight texture to the groom's hair to give it a short, spiky, cropped effect.



Two-tier net veil, and blue thistles here and there in her bouquet.





The groom's blue suit, paisley cravat, pointed hankie and earring.



Wrist tattoos on the groom, and a lace-up back dress detail on the bride.



I made a sparkling headpiece from vintage jewelry. Puffed shoulders were added, along with sleeves and matching rings.



Vince the feline ring bearer was dressed in a handmade wedding vest from Rockindogs
on etsy, shown in the last photo.
I painted his vest, and gave him a handmade bowtie.
