Everyone has different experiences with wedding planning and finding the right wedding dress is no exception to this. I am so glad that through my photographer I found Phiney @poppyperspective and had the most chilled experience in finding ‘the one’. A few weeks ago I hopped on the train to London to meet one of my bridesmaids before heading to Phiney’s pop up in Bloomsbury. I had seen a lot of her dresses modelled effortlessly in styled shoots with our photographer so I was mega excited about getting to try them on. It’s important to me that our day isn’t wasteful which is one of the reasons I love Phiney’s ethos, all dresses are designed and made by hand in her studio and nothing is mass-produced, or will ever go to waste. She works closely with a handful of British suppliers and mills and keeps all her leftover scraps for toiling new designs and making smaller components like covered buttons and bias binding. That’s all very well and good but what about the trying-on experience? It was bliss. I only had the experience of one other bridal shop and whilst it wasn’t awful I found the sales assistant quite pushy and when you’re looking at spending ££££ the last thing you want is to be pushed into a decision. Phiney was not like that in the slightest she is passionate about her dresses and makes suggestions of where things could be altered to better suit, but I never felt pressured into choosing something there and then.
Working with Phiney at Poppy Perspective to create the wedding dress of my dreams was such a lovely experience from start to finish. Her patience and understanding all the way through the process made it feel so easy! I absolutely loved the finished dress and it captured everything I hoped.
Phiney created my perfect wedding dress. We started from scratch with a few pictures and ideas of what I liked but I never imagined what we would come up with together. She created a dress that exceeded all my expectations. The most fun was going to buy all the fabrics and deciding we would go for a pink wedding dress - who knew!! Phiney came all the way to London to have every fitting in the comfort of my own home and nothing was ever too much trouble. She is so easy to work with and makes you feel relaxed about what can be such a high pressured process. I wish I could do it all over again! So excited to see the future of Poppy Perspective!
