Let me start by telling you that RMW reader and bride Lauren has some quite spectacular cuff action going on – with a bird motif. And in keeping with the bird theme she also has a really rather beautiful feather headpiece (and you know how we love a feather…). But really it’s the dress I want to talk about. Because two days before W-day (yes two days) Lauren’s gown turned up only to be in a bit of a um…unwearable state.
I mean seriously – can you imagine the stress?!
Unpeturbed Lauren Made her way to Harvey Nichols armed with future husbands James’s credit card and a mission to find something fabulous. Which she did – a fashion forward ruffled number from BCBG Maxazria.
And as well as all of this catwalk-worthy greatness there is also a whole bunch of joy and general merriment to behold – Lauren and James’s guests clearly had an absolute riot…all captured perfectly by Claudine Hartzel.
