Pre-Raphaelite/Medieval Couture Bridal Gowns 'Celtic Princess'
("Raffaella" variation)

medieval style wedding dress with hanging sleeves gold and dark blue brocade medieval style wedding dress with tailored hanging sleeves

An order based closely on the original "Raffaella" gown; a figure-enhancing two-piece gown, shown in a navy and soft gold brocade. The medieval-styled bridal gown is lightly corseted with back lacing. Inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite paintings of John William Waterhouse, this alternative wedding dress has fitted ruched chiffon undersleeves with button detailing at the wrist. These are revealed beneath classic trumpet-shaped 'medieval' sleeves. The flat-fronted A-line skirt with a volume of fabric gathered into the back flatters both the slimmest and more shapely brides. Piped contrasts and sleeve linings were in navy silk satin.

To order: The "Raffaella" design is £2100 to construct.
Your choice of fabric from our vast range will add from between £150 to £500,
depending on type - silk dupion, damask, brocade etc

This design can be varied and individualised
to each made-to-measure order.
