Custom 2-piece Wedding Gown

2 Piece Wedding Gown

We never cease to be amazed by the beautiful and creative gowns our clients allow us to make.

This gorgeous skirt and top combination matches our client’s individual style and personality perfectly. Our client wanted a non-traditional gown that was feminine but unique and she was absolutely delighted with this skirt, which we created to complement her lace top.

It’s gowns like this one that make dressmaking such a wonderful and rewarding industry to be a part of. Together, we’re able to overcome many challenges and create truly stunning gowns. And the best part; the joy we see on our clients faces!

REAL WEDDINGS: Beach Wedding Bliss

We’re always delighted to receive real wedding photos of our gorgeous brides and bridesmaids wearing our creations. This mermaid style gown was the perfect choice for her beach wedding. What better way to celebrate a gorgeous client than with a video montage?

Rachelle & Luke’s Beach Wedding

Rachelle was off to a rocky start finding her wedding gown. On two occasions, Rachelle thought she had found ‘the dress’ but each time fate intervened. It simply wasn’t to be. Disappointed, Rachelle decided to forgo the bridal shops and have her dress custom-made with us at Riverside Gowns.

Being a beach wedding, the style was semi-formal. The gorgeous bride opted for this popular mermaid-style gown with sweetheart neckline and mid-length train. The lace overlay is detailed and divine, and one of our favourites to work with.

We were truly honoured to attend Rachelle’s wedding and see her sparkle in this gown.Dress&Group_Combo_01Mar2016

Real Wedding: Debra + Bryan

Debra and Bryan’s wedding was held at one of the most beautiful wineries in the eastern suburbs.

I remember back a few months ago, Debra came to my shop and asked me to make a wedding dress for her. She prefered a vintage (blush) pink gown from my range at the store, with  a slightly changed skirt – less poofy! Afterwards, her daughter brought an image of a bridesmaid dress, and wanted the sleeves changed. I made both dresses as well as 2 little bags which are in Scottish tartan to blend in a little Scottish touch.


Debra commented ” Thank you River for making my dream wedding gown and bridesmaid gown for my daughter, we felt beautiful and the compliments on your work were overwhelming”

Seeing them now, they look so happy and she received  so many compliments on her special day.

Jasmine’s Vintage Pink Gown for a Garden Wedding

One of the best parts of creating custom made gowns is seeing them on the brides big day. This is Jasmine, she came to us last year to help her create her perfect gown for a vintage inspired garden wedding. One of my favourite parts of this gown is the interesting ankle length, perfect for walking in the garden with the added benefit of being very cute. Jasmine’s wedding is gown features a french fine lace bodice combined with antique rose pink satin and colour matching tulle skirt.

Jasmine pulled of this vintage look perfectly and we would like to wish Jasmine and Luke a big congratulations from Riverside Gowns!
