Riding habit style wedding dress and jacket was designed and made by Elizabeth Ayers for the wedding theme based on black and white. Being an equestrian dressage rider and enjoying wearing the full riding habit costume she wanted to incorporate the look into her wedding dress. As Elizabeth had trained in Theatre costume this was just up her street. The dress was inspired by the riding habits that she wore and was accessorised with the full Edwardian style riding hat.
This dress and jacket was worn over a traditional boned Edwardian style corset which gave the dress an excellent base on which to be worn.
With the experience in theatre and costume it was the natural decision to have her dress made.
The dress and jacket was made in smooth dupion silk which gave body and shape. The bodice of the dress was made with black all over lace and a matching deep edged lace was used to trim the jacket.
Elizabeth did a fantastic job designing and making my dream wedding dress. I had the image in my head of what I wanted and she designed and produced it to the finest detail within my budget too! I can highly recommend Elizabeth Ayers bridal wear for bespoke wedding dresses.
