A Middlesbrough bride, Cheryl McGlynn, has created her own showpiece by hand stitching over 22,000 goose feathers to make her own wedding dress.
Cheryl, who runs a business selling dresses for weddings, spent more than half a year creating the gown that she would wear when walking down the aisle, all the while keeping up with the demands of her own company.
The dressmaker said of her creation:
“It is a unique piece. I know one designer has worked with feathers, and obviously Alexander McQueen who I really like, but I haven’t seen many other dresses like that one.”
Not stopping there, however, the blushing bride also crafted the dresses for her daughter and the lucky bridesmaids. According to Gazette Live, Cheryl is keen to re-use the material and break down her own creation to conjure up a new, and original, wedding dress for one her clients.
Cheryl, a graduate of Cleveland College of Art and Design, married her sweetheart Joel, a HGV driver, in a ceremony at St Cuthbert’s Church in Ormesby, in front of their family and friends.
Cheryl and her partner Joel, like many brides and grooms, have taken exceptional care and attention with the important parts of a wedding, and this includes hiring those who are going to record the happy day. Couples in this part of the country will be keen to ensure that the day they have spent so long organising will be documented by a top wedding photographer in North West England.
