Regency author ties the knot


I chose an Empire-style dress for my recent wedding which took place last month in Hertfordshire, England. The dress would not have looked too far out of place in Regency England.


The ivory dress had a beaded lace bodice and a skirt of satin-like material with a semi-transparent muslin-like overskirt. I carried a hand-tied bouquet of ivory roses.


What is missing of course, which a real Regency lady would have worn at her wedding is a bonnet and/or veil.
