Lacey and Mitchel: Something Blue

It was a chilly winter’s night in Edinburgh when Mitchel proposed to Lacey. Soon after, they started planning their wedding — an intimate celebration with close family and friends that reflected their personalities and which had a rich Art Nouveau feel.
“It had rained all day and night before and we had a downpour on the morning of the wedding,” says Lacey. “People kept coming up to me and reassuring me that everything was going to be OK, but I had to keep explaining that I wanted an overcast day. I wanted darker photos and not to have to wear sunscreen. It really was a perfect day.”
Lacey’s eggshell blue gown with dark blue and pewter embellished lace was a reflection of the 1930s wedding theme. She was working as a bridal consultant and knew that she didn’t want to buy off the rack. “I wanted something custom and fantastic,” she says. “I met Jillian Franklin while I was studying fashion and knew that there was no one else who could make my dream dress a reality.”
Mitch was blown away by the unique but beautiful design. “It was very surreal, like a dream,” he says. “Lacey walking down the aisle and seeing her dress was a standout moment for me.” For Lacey, the highlight was seeing her guests’ reactions when they saw the colour of her dress, a step away from the traditional white.
After 13 months of wedding planning, Lacey encourages brides-to-be to not waste energy on the small things. “Think, ‘will I care about it in five years?’” she says. “The answer is no. Remember to take the time to soak it all in. It really is the best day ever.”
