The Dorchester Wedding

Dorchester Hotel, London, wedding dress, CG Bridal,

Silk duchess satin wedding dress by CG Bridal

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.

What a bonus to be blessed, at long last, with a beautiful sunny London day for the Celebrations Wedding Show. A nice steady stream of visitors joined us at the Grosvenor Square location of this fine Hotel to meander the line up of exhibitors for all things bridal.
We were treated to the vocal delights of the ‘singing chef’ courtesy of Encore Entertainments and kept cool with the scrumptious ice cream provided by The Isecream Company.
We had a great afternoon and look forward to welcoming the new brides-to-be to the CG Atelier.
A big thank you to our fabulous models; Gilda, Ramona, Kenrick and Layla.
