Taking inspiration from iconic fashion of previous eras, the House of Webb have been using traditional couture tailoring techniques to create timeless bridal wear for the past 15 years. The finest fabrics are perfectly cut, precisely fitted and beautifully finished to make unique bridal gowns and wedding ensembles by their in-house design team in Coventry, UK.
However, with the launch of their brand new innovative online boutique service, now any bride can experience having a custom made couture-finished wedding dress, wherever you are in the world!
The process to getting your very own wedding dress made is surprisingly simple. After you’ve created an account all you have to do is put in your name, wedding date, delivery address, measurements (they can will help you if you need it) and your design choice, including any additional requirements you might have. They will then conduct an online consultation where you discuss your ideas for your dream dress. You can change anything you like from the length, neckline, colour and embellishments. The only limit is what you can dream up! Once you have settled on your final dress design, they will send you a quote.
There’s something really fun and romantic about carnivals and fun fairs, making them the perfect spot for a cute engagement shoot!
“The inspiration for this shoot came from HBO’s Carnivale, the book Geek Love, Tod Browning’s Freaks, AHS Freakshow, and all things carnival”, said photographer Jillian Ryan. “The shoot took place in Queen Creek, AZ, at Frazier Show’s Carnival. I called the owner beforehand and got permission to shoot there. We were able to come a bit early which was great because no one else was there yet!”
“I hope this shoot inspires Rock n Roll brides and grooms to be unique. This is not your typical wedding location and our model’s aren’t wearing typical wedding clothes. I think the location and the style of the bride and groom really make it stand out. Why not wear a sparkly romper on your wedding day or rent out a carnival as your venue?! Your wedding can be whatever you want it to be. I totally would have gone this route for my own wedding if I’d thought about it at the time! Rock n Roll Bride is all about embracing your own version of weird and awesome, owning it, and doing your wedding your way.”
When we viewed the house and spotted the weird 1960s, curved, brown greenhouse stuck to the back of it, the first thing we said was “Well that’s gotta go right away!” It had broken panes of glass everywhere, you have to walk through it to get out to the garden, and carpet… YES CARPET on the ground. I didn’t think there was ever anything worse than carpet on a bathroom floor, but apparently I was wrong.
When we moved in, we realised the washer/dryer that came with the house was actually just a washing machine and with no extra funds right now to buy a new one, we decided to turn the greenhouse into a makeshift drying room. It actually works really well because, oh sweet baby Jesus, does it get hot in there.
Our cats have also now completely and utterly adopted it as their new Catio. Our two Maine Coons are indoor cats (although we take them around the garden on leads once a week – yes, I know, we’re those kind of crazy cat people) but when they discovered that space, and that sitting in it was almost, almost like sunning themselves outside, well, we basically can’t get them out of it.
So the plans to knock the thing down almost immediately have fallen to the wayside, at least until we extend the kitchen in a few years time. But what to do with it? It’s not massive, only about 2.5 metres squared, which does limit things somewhat.
