The dress has a fitted and boned bodice with square shaped neckline and invisible zip back closure. The flared, knee length skirt has soft white tulle peeking out below. Both the waistline and neckline are decorated with white and silver lace and hand beading with Swarovski diamante details. Aine’s veil was also made to order.

Aine’s veil was a simple elbow length veil with two tiers, made from white tulle. It was finished with a plain cut edge and a thread of silver to match the silver detailing on her dress.

Hand beaded lace details

The neckline and waistline of Aine’s dress were emphasised with delicate white and silver scalloped lace. Tiny silver seed beads, bugle beads, Swarovski crystals and diamante stones were added by hand to really make Aine sparkle on her wedding day.
