I had the loveliest day yesterday, spent with my family up on the North East Coast. After a very hectic few weeks, it was exactly what I needed to refocus my mind; a day full of sunshine, sea, sand, fresh air, laughter and a very refreshing glass of wine at the end of it all ;) It's given me a chance to take stock of the huge amount of content I have to share with you over the next few weeks and months, from real wedding features, to new dress designers, to new suppliers offering lovely services that might appeal to my readers, like the one I'm going to share with you this morning.
Inspired by vintage sepia fashion photography, Picture My Dress was created by fashion designer Lindsey Napp to offer bespoke fashion illustrations as a beautiful way to capture the memories of those special occasions, be it your wedding day or another special day in your life.
Each piece of artwork is completely original, working from photographs provided by you, Lindsey will recreate your look including hairstyle and flowers if desired in a hand drawn fashion illustration. The designs are created using graphic design markers, ink and designers gouache. The artwork can be personalised with the names of the bride and goom and their wedding date etc. This will be presented in a high quality double mount for £189 and framed in a black gallery frame for £229.
I think that's an excellent price for a unique and very personal work of art…

Before having children, Lindsey was a fashion designer and worked with Nicole Farhi and Elizabeth March of Sloane Square amongst others. She decided to set up her own business after giving a friend one of her bridal portraits as a wedding gift. Soon after she had requests to do illustrations for other people to give to their friends or family, and so Picture My Dress born…
Bridal portraits make a personal gift that will be cherished for years. However, individual portraits of the groom or of the wedding couple together are also possible.
Illustrations from Picture My Dress can be purchased online, over the phone or by buying a Gift Certificate…
"Our Gift Certificate comes in a beautiful presentation box and makes a truly unique present you can give on the wedding day itself…."
What a lovely idea this would make for a Mother of the Bride or family member as way of thanking them for contributing to the wedding, or a wedding anniversary gift?
