Levina and Ben wanted a vibrant wedding, filled with Levina’s favourite shade of purple. The perfect colour of silk dupion was available for Levina’s corset and Ben’s waistcoat and bow tie, but the skirt of Levina’s gown is five layers of floating chiffon in different purples so that the colours shift and show through in the perfect shade, and the lace of the bodice was hand dyed to match. The corset has small panniers and the top layer of the skirt built in, so the lace can cascade in soft falls from the hips, but the corset can then be removed for a more sleek style of gown later in the reception.
