The Dorchester Wedding

It could not have been a more perfect sunhine Spring day for the wedding of CG Bridal client, Elaine to Noel.
A marriage of two continents, China and Jamaica unite set atop the stunning London panoramic view, including a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony. The latter, a first for Clariscia to experience. CG truly had her, work cut out, as the bride was in her fifth month of pregnancy. The brides outfit came together beautifully with the grace of God and the sewing fairies who drifted in on gossamer clouds. Working carefully and neatly around Elaines growing bump making sure no button was out of place on the very delicate, appliqued lace tulle jacket and that no pleat fell adrift accross the dress front. An unfussy neatly edged veil completed the brides ensemble.
The Dorchester Hotel staff descreetly provided the finest backdrop, attending to every need without overshadowing the intmate gathering of relatives and friends. A very special day and we at CGHQ wish the newlyweds, many years of happy marriage together.

CG’s Winter Warmers’

We’re sure you will agree that you cannot beat a good coat on a crisp winters day to help wrap away the winter woe’s.

To achieve this, Clariscia’s three C’s comprising of; good cut, colour and cloth are essential.

Here CG uses two fabrics, a ribbed wool from a French fabric house famed for their strong use of colour and established since 1947.
The coat, in rich royal purple, is teamed with one of their plain stretch wools to achieve this effect for an updated take on a classic refer coat. Cut with a deeper dolman armhole, it gives plenty of room for movement and comfort.
