Indiebride is incredible! My partner and I decided to get married fairly quickly after getting engaged, meaning we didn't have much longer than 4 months to organise things. I was also quite set on ensuring my wedding dress would be made sustainably, so was fairly narrowed down to where I could buy my dress from.
I found Indiebride during my search - Miina kindly said she would be able to create my dress in time for the wedding. The studio is a cute, boho space near Brixton, in the attic space of what looks like a church. When visiting, I felt no pressure to make a decision and Miina was very patient while I picked out some styles I liked - being notoriously bad at making decisions, this was a lengthy process. I ended up choosing the second dress I tried on (Tanita), and Miina swiftly got to work. Over the next few months, she was quick to respond, kept me up to date with progress, and let me come in to try on the dress a couple of times to see how it fit with my other accessories. The finished dress was stunning, made of beautiful soft silk with an elegant train. I went with a standard size of 10 (which is what I would usually wear in regular clothes) and it fit like a glove. Miina considered the small details such as hooks which I could attach to my finger or a concealed button throughout the day. While wearing the dress I felt totally comfortable (including through dinner), and didn't stop dancing for a moment throughout the evening. Most of the comments I received were on how the dress looked exactly like "me", and that's exactly how it felt - with an extra level of magic.
It was a pleasure to work with you Miina, and I would recommend anyone looking for a more eco-conscious, unique wedding dress to try Indiebride!
