Real Wedding: Björn, Josephine & Rachel (her custom eco & ethical wedding dress)

Josephine and her fiancé Björn celebrated their nuptials twice, so Josephine had two special days in her custom dress! The couple eloped in New York City to get married at city hall with Björn's best friend and then enjoyed a large wedding reception three weeks later in Sweden surrounded by friends and family.

Josephine said: "Celia Grace made sure I had the perfect wedding dress...The aspect of a fair trade wedding dress was very important to me and I was really happy when I found Celia Grace that not only used fair trade fabric, but also provided their seamstresses proper payment and reasonable working hours as well as giving away water filters."

Josephine found out she was pregnant when she was ordering her dress. She fell in love with the detailed bodice, A-line silhouette and sumptuous heirloom silk fabric of the Rachel dress, but also liked the tea-length of the Lucille dress and wanted a higher waistline. Working with Celia Grace Founders Marcie and Alix, Josephine was able to create her dream dress to fit her baby bump.

Their wedding day was a typical hot New York July day but Josephine stayed cool in the light heirloom silk and shortened hem. A few weeks later, the couple celebrated in slightly cooler August weather in Sweden.

Josephine wrote: "I would definitely recommend everyone to get their dress from Celia Grace, not only because they are producing their dresses in a fair way, but also because the dresses are beautifully made and will make any bride (even a five month pregnant one) look stunning!"
