Krista & Bretts wedding day. 20/10/2018
Krista & Brett married at
ST JOHN’S ANGLICAN CHURCH
in Toorak Melbourne.
Krista’s Custom couture gown had been inspired by her Oscars red carpet gown in which Shane had designed for Krista in 2007.
The gown had been specifically hand beaded overseas to the exact design detail Shane had created.
The beading is of Swarovski crystals, peals bugle beads all placed in the required design on a pale blue silk chiffon.
The gown formed into a 2 metre long stunning train. The bodice was hand moulded with sheer silk chiffon draping gently across the body to form a flattering silhouette with an internal corset forming onto the chest and arm areas on a sheer silk tulle to form the lace work detail to seem that it was applied to Krista’s skin.
Down the back of Krista’s gown showed silver crystal buttons.
Krista’s veil had been hand crafted with the Bride&Grooms initials finishing off the 3 metre veil.
For the reception at the
NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA
in Melbourne, Shane & Krista had decided to remove the gowns train so Krista could move more freely for the reception.
To the shock of onlookers Shane carefully & skilfully cut the 2 metre train off the gown making the wedding gown now a stunning evening gown for Krista to enjoy the night.
The cost of Krista’s gown was $45,000.00 #kristavendy #shanemcconnellcouture #shanewilliammcconnell
