Tartan, heather and butterflies were to be the key elements of Victoria and Iain's wedding in Kelso. We managed to match a gorgeous peacock blue/red shot silk to the groom's "Flower of Scotland" tartan. A classic long line back-laced corset was edged with silk tartan and embellished with a beaded butterfly on the upper hip! To complete the head-to-toe effect, shoes were also covered in silk tartan.
