Weddings normally see brides prancing down the aisle in a dreamy, floaty, sometimes meringue like, white dress. However, Melbourne woman Sophie Shaw broke this tradition and strutted down the aisle in a stunning black gown.
‘I always wear black anyway, I think it suits me and it’s such a bold and striking colour,’ she said.
BLACK LOVE ❤️ What I would do to wear this incredible masterpiece – my wedding dress – again. @signormontcouture you’ll forever have a place in my heart for creating this for me. I don’t do ‘traditional’ and both Jaryd & I as a couple don’t do ‘normal’ – we wanted to do US and this dress definitely screams ME. That’s what your wedding day should be about… Not how much money you spent, how many carats your ring is, what location, or what ‘on trend’ food you served… Make the day all about YOU TWO and celebrating the intense love you have for one & other, surrounded by your favorite people who genuinely want to see your happiness. I’ve never had as much fun as I did on this night, the BEST night of my life✨ you can find this baby hanging in the window at @signormontcouture
BLACK BRIDE 💐 I miss our fittings so much @signormontcouture! The hours this genius of a man put in for me is time I’ll never ever be able to repay him for. This image highlights only some of the detail he hand sewed onto my gown. I had the vision in my head & then Anthony made it come to life better than I’d ever expected. His addition of leather to my original vintage-classic-Hollywood-glam I was going for added the modern, bold touch it needed to be perfect. Love you @signormontcouture #KeepingUpWithTheCachias
So today all I had planned was to get my eyebrows done. Instead, my wedding went viral 6 months later. @signor_mont – you said I’m still making waves today, when in fact it’s you making those waves darling. Your dress, your creation, your work! P.S I don’t read ANY of it (articles/comments) although someone did tell me that people think I just “wanted to get my fakies out”. I’ll take that! After breastfeeding a big heffa for 5 months, I’m more than flattered my mother jugs look fake and didn’t cost me $15K! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻 📷@nicoletaranto_photography
The bridal party also donned black, with bouquets that featured no flowers.
