Hi there, thanks for checking out this blog post. As the end of 2016 draws in, I thought it would be an ideal opportunity to look back at Kosibah Real Brides who got married in a different country from which they usually live.
This is more pertinent to me as a bridal designer who has recently relocated to New York from London after successfully running my business there for 25 years.
It’s a huge leap of faith to have a destination wedding because even if you have the most efficient and well connected wedding planner, you are still physically removed from where your dream day will take place.
I’ve had the great privilege this year to work with some amazing brides to create couture gowns for their destination weddings. I’m pleased that at least getting their couture gown made is one thing they can be part of from start to completion.
Here is the list. Please let me know which is your favourite Kosibah Bride or wedding destination.
1.Kosibah Real Bride Louise. Destination: Cape Town, South Africa.
Louise wore a couture full skirted bridal gown with a beaded, corseted bodice and a tulle skirt bustled behind with multi length layers, stiffed at the hemline with horsehair crinoline.
3. Kosibah Real Bride Amina. Destination: Chateneauf-de-Grass (near Nice), France.
4. Kosibah Real Bride Julianna. Destination: Santorini, Greece.
5. Kosibah Real Bride Layal. Destination: Lake Como, Italy.
Layal wore a couture bridal gown with a fitted beaded Lace bodice with an intergral corset and delicate covered buttons over the dress zipper and dropped shoulder strap sleeves. The fishtail skirt was made up of over 50 meters of Tulle gathered into rose swirls and ruffles on the surface fabric of Duchesse Satin. A matching cathedral veil with hand stitched Lace edging completed the ensemble. Photos by Jide Alakija.
I look forward to reading your comments. Thank you.
