Love My Dress: A manchester city wedding with a boho vibe and touch of gatsby glamour

Jacqui and Toby, both teachers were married on the 25th of October 2014 on a bright Autumnal day at the stunning Great John Street Hotel, Eclectic Collection in Manchester city centre.  The Groom told us a bit about the inspiration for their day;

We wanted a city wedding in a boutique venue with an informal feel. The rooftop terrace with views of the city clinched the deal. The rooftop terrace was amazing throughout. There were great views over the city and the heaters kept us warm in the October chill as we watched the sun set over the city.

Jacqui looks so beautiful in her fitted strapless stretch dutchess satin dress with its cute fishtail shape design and little train. She paired it with an adorable french lace bodice buttoned at the back with satin covered buttons. So lovely to be able to change the look of her dress by taking the lace bodice off in the evening to reveal the pretty gown for partying.  She found her dream dress, but it wasn’t without a little drama;

Ive always loved the Boho, vintage style, but Im quite glam at heart, so I was struggling to find something that combined the two styles. After trying on numerous beautiful dresses I just couldnt seem to find the one. I spent many hours searching online and came across Sabina Motasem. I found a stockist and went to try on her dress. I immediately fell in love with the Colette gown and matching Evelyn bodice. When I phoned the shop the next day they had closed down!”
