Hi everyone,

This website has been a great help tp me and I love, even if I dont always reply, to all the topics discussed on the forums.
I wanted to add this link(if i have!) I have recently made a medieval wedding dress, plus the grooms and bridesmaids outfits. This is the embroidery I did on the brides corset, I wanted your lots! opinions to see what you thought!
I'll post a photo of the outfits soon aswell, dont think Im trying to getting any praise or anyhting, its purely out of respect for everyone on here, I know i'll get an honest opinion on it all and would appreciate that.

Hope you enjoy having a look, you might be able to get into all the photos from this link anyway, not too sure...
Love Helz

Very beautiful! We had a renaissance wedding, but our location wasn't anywhere near as glamorous! (It was just at our house). Super job!

The dress is silk, is it not? And the location is just perfect.

Love the sleeves Heltz, the lace undersleeve is lovely. The lacing up the back looks great on the corset. Good to see they have Elizabethan houses available for use in Somerset. None of this yanky repro here!Res miranda!
Res miranda!
love and kisses, Jan
