Alice: Real CB Bride

Three years ago, there would not have been too many brides willing to select their wedding dress virtually. However many of us - me included - have learned that anything is achievable with a little optomism and creativity. I met Alice and her mother over Zoom, with her wedding date looming - it was only 6 weeks away!

Alice and her fiance had decided to say YES to love and move ahead with their wedding. With all my Digital Dress Dates, we had an in-depth conversation about what Alice wanted to 'feel' like on her wedding day and what she had envisaged for herself. From these details I took her through the collection. From working with women and clients for over 13 years I have refined the skill of sensing people's style from what they communicate and which looks attract them to Carte Blanche Bride.

"I had such a beautiful wedding day and got so many compliments on my beautiful Carte Blanche set"

From our initial appointment, Alice selected some styles to have shipped up to her in Sydney for in-person try ons. We have another appointment to try on the pieces and I coach my clients through the cut, fit and look of each style they have selected.

Alice instantly knew the Atelier Blanche Pivoine/Acanthe two-piece look was innately her. She couldn't take her eyes of the mirror and just felt magic. Even through Zoom, I definitely had goosebumps! We chose to style the gorgeous look with a Laure de Sagazan lace-trimmed veil.

Atelier Blanche is a new brand for Carte Blanche Bride. A stunningly stylish atelier in the heart of Paris that focuses on fabrication and minimalism. The PIVOINE style is all-at-once modern and eclectic with a 1970s touch. A floral lace without being frilly. The ACANTHE floor length skirt is made from a dreamy 100% silk crepe, with seam detail that creates a stunning silhouette.

 Alice has so generously shared with us her stunning images in her Atelier Blanche wedding dress.
