Kath is another client from Weddings at Work who is based in Singapore…we started communicating back in March 2011 and asked me to do her entourage and prenup dresses…

Since her wedding is in 2013 we started working on her prenup dresses first…

The first dress inspiration she had was the Elie Saab gown worn by Mila Kunis at the 2011 Oscar Awards…

Kath particularly love the detail of the top as well as the color so I made her a gown that is close to her inspiration but not showing off too much skin (as her fiance does not like revealing clothes…)

Combination of chiffon and french lace in lavender is what this dress is made of…

Another dress i made for her prenup is a little pink tulip dress with black lace trimming detail on the shoulder…

She just wanted something girly…light…summery… something that compliments the location of the shoot…

Krislyn is another client via the wedding forums…she initially inquired via email about prenup dresses and eventually gave me a phone call at 10:30 in the evening…maybe because of too much excitement she wanted to come over to the shop that very moment we spoke on the phone, but since it’s already late in the evening we scheduled it on another day…

When she came over to my “shopartment” she already had an idea on how she wants to look in her prenup photos…she wanted something vintage & classic…taking inspiration from style icon Audrey Hepburn…

she also wanted something practical and convertible so that she can still wear the dress on other occasions…

so we came up with a convertible 1960′s inspired dress…something that she can wear in the office (matched with a blazer) and just put on a little something if she’s going out on a date with her husband or night out with friends…

a pencil cut, high neck and low back dress in blue gray taffeta for the main piece…and a detachable A Line skirt to give it a second look…

the Mahogany Farm in Sta. Rita, Pampanga became the perfect background for this amazing shots by photographer Bobby Delos Santos…

I met Violet through the referral of my client who is set to get married on December 2012…when she contacted me and asked me to do her prenup and wedding gown it was less than 2 months before her wedding day (57 days to be exact)…our first meeting was in my shop with her sister who happend to be her wedding coordinator as well…

Admittedly, she told me that she is not a girly – girly type of girl…she’s more of the athletic type (she used to be a football player in Ateneo) so it’ll be a bit of a challenge for me to dress her up in gowns…however, she already had a clear vision of what she wanted for her gowns…

She asked me to do 4 gowns for the most important event of her life…2 prenup gowns, dinner reception gown and her wedding gown (will blog about the reception dinner & sunrise wedding ceremony on my next post)

It is obvious in her name that her motif is violet – african violet according to her…

The first prenup gown i made was a purple / plum organza ballgown with pleated detail on the bodice…she was like a princess dressed up for a ball and ready to meet her prince…

And since the theme of the wedding is Mediterranean (wedding ceremony took place in the magnificent Mediterranean – themed Thunderbird Resort in Poro Pt., La Union), another prenup gown I made her was a Grecian – inspired convertible gown…

The outer dress when removed turns into a cute, little and “naughty” white dress…

Camp John Hay and Session Road in Baguio City were the perfect background for this lovely couple’s engagement shoot…

Diana never knew me until she found me on the internet when she was on the lookout for someone who will make her pre nup gowns…she found me through multiply.com and as they say the rest is history…

We collaborated our ideas and she was very open to my suggestions…so we came up with these dresses

I made her a royal blue charmeuse backless gown inspired by the yellow gown worn by Kate Hudson in the movie “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days” (both in the movie poster & in the movie itself)

Another piece I made for Diana is a convertible black taffeta gown that turns into a Little Black Dress when the ball skirt is removed…this piece is one of my favorite among my works mainly because this paved the way for me to be able to penetrate the wedding industry…

I can’t thank her enough for trusting my creativity and most specially for opening new doors of opportunity for me in the wedding industry…I can say she is one client who is very easy to work with…she’s fuss free
