Fairytale Wedding Dress | Real Bride | NZ | Anna Schimmel


Anna and Team,

Thank you so very much for creating my beautiful wedding gown.

The dress was exactly what I had envisioned, and the style captured the romantic and relaxed feel of our wedding day, which I had hoped for.

Both yourself and your team were an absolute delight to work with over the months.

Thank you,


Jemma’s fairytale wedding dress

Jemma wore a very fitted silk gown cut as a base dress in a rich matte silk crepe. This base was tailored to really hug her silhouette and flared out at the hem.

The wedding dress was tightly boned with a low straight neckline and the hem stiffed to hold the fluted shape. For an ethereal sheer feel we added two layers of sheer English tulle, flared, but flat at the bodice. Delicate Chantilly lace was draped in the bodice with a flattering wrap effect, further textured by the delicate blossoms within the French lace.

A lightly gathered lace skirt was added over the tulle, it had a generous, very pretty train and the exquisite eyelash scallops along the hem really showed up over the barely there tulle.

This train could be buttoned up for dancing in soft folds, and it looked just a pretty bustled up.

The finishing touch were little lace straps, very slender and loose to drop off the shoulder.

For me, Jemma’s fairytale wedding dress has always been a a dress straight out of Shakespeare midsummer nights dream.

Just wanted to say how beautiful my dress turned out on the day (and how great I felt in it walking down the aisle). Your girls and yourself did such an amazing job. Thank you.
