Styling A Civil Ceremony: Happy Zinkata Customers

May 29, 2015 | Fashion

Last week I walked into Zinkata and straight into the cutest couple ever.. (Edwin and Becky). Becky was shopping for a dress for their Civil/ Court wedding. A short discussion with both of them immediately revealed what ideas/brief they were working with:

  1. It was a very simple event
  2. They wanted pretty pictures.
  3. Edwin and Becky’s outfits should fuse nicely together


It was a fairly open brief and we immediately picked out options for the gorgeous bride with.

…These 3 guidelines

1. Civil ceremony..nothing too skimpy.. A punchy classic silhoutte.

2.Choose a dress that works quite nicely with a suit(Groom’s outfit)

3.Identify her body type and choose a timeless dress to suit her..

Eventually, we opted for a sleeveless Coral floral dress by Ukulele : a London based romantic contemporary brand. We loved how it cinched in at the waist and the knee length full skirt.. .. Luckily, her beau absolutely approved  !!!.. Zing!




They left quite a happy couple with us promising to send images as a guide for what the groom should wear..

These images sort of stood out for us..


Clean classic silhouttes for Edwin.. Becky’s dress we felt needed a fascinator and metallic shoes ..

See images below..
