Real Wedding: Matt & Claire

Matt and Claire married in Birmingham's Jewellery quarter at St Pauls Church on the 20th July, Matt was in his full military uniform and Claire wore a dress that she had made herself, with a little help from her friends. I think this is just such a lovely thing to do and that more people should give it a try. Time was that members of the family would craft the brides dress but making your own seems to have gone out of fashion these days. Clare didn't really have any dress making experience to speak of and saying that neither did I really but I made my own wedding dress too. Making your own means you can get exactly the shape and fit you want and all without shelling out a small fortune for a bespoke made gown (though don't get me wrong if I had the spare cash I know a couple of amazing dress designers I'd happily throw it at)...
