I am very lucky to count Ellen Stanistreet of Lissom Yarn as one of my dear friends. I was even luckier because she agreed to make my wedding dress for our enchanting Woody End wedding despite moving interstate to start a masters degree. I flew to Melbourne for a toile fitting just before Christmas, and then we started the new year with four days madly sewing together over metres of tulle, silk and lace. It was a great privilege to work beside Ellen on my dress, discussing design decisions and finalising details as we went. It was everything I had hoped for and really reflected the organic, gentle feel that I wanted for our whole wedding.
