Ellis Bridals Designer Weekend

Ellis Bridals Designer Weekend

 

We are super excited to bring you a fabulous designer Trunk Show for our newest bridal collection coming to the boutique.

Ellis Bridals is over 100 years old, a century of living heritage that continues to inform and refine the design process. When a bride chooses an Ellis Bridals dress she chooses a little story. A gown embedded with history, tradition and love.

Ellis bridal gowns are modern and creative, they understand a brides is unique, and desires and deserves a dress to reflect her. An Ellis bride looks for designs that are beautifully made and style-led: quintessentially her. Her style is her essence: luxe femininity that is effortlessly individual.

They create for your moment. For your once in a lifetime dress, the one dreamed of since childhood, so this is a must see collection.

We will have the full 2018 collection and some of their best selling dresses in for one weekend only. We will offer 15% off all orders on Ellis dresses over the weekend.

This designer weekend is by appointment only so book today on 01623661309, through Facebook or online to come and join us and become a #cherishedbride

Holly’s Barn Wedding with wedding dress from Shade Bridal

Holly’s Barn Wedding With Wedding Dress From Shade Bridal

Real Bride at Hazel Gap Barn

Our bride Holly married Nick at the lovely Hazel Gap Barn in Nottinghamshire. They had quite a blustery day and had a laugh in the wind, with everything from Holly’s veil to confetti flying all around them!

Holly wore an under-stated ivory dress with no ‘bling’. Her veil and floral crown added to a lovely romantic look.

Like lots of our brides, Holly wanted a romantic dress that was light and easy to wear. Because we specialise in soft silks and French laces we were able to give Holly the dress she wanted from the start of her searching. Her dress was designed by Linea Raffaelli, a Belgian design house, and she found it on our sale rail!

…and the bride wore her great-grandmother’s wedding veil

Rosy & Tom’s Nottingham City Wedding

Our bride Rosy was married last Saturday to Tom in the heart of Nottingham. She chose our lovely Eleanor dress from the French Collection, a dreamy lace and silk tulle gown with no ‘bling’ in champagne and ivory. It was the perfect match to her veil, which was the starting point for her dress choosing last year.

Her veil was very special. Made from Nottingham lace, her great grandmother had first worn it in 1935. Rosy’s grandmother then wore it at her wedding, followed by Rosy’s mum and then, finally, Rosy herself! And they were all married at the stunning St Mary’s Church in the Lace Market.

After the ceremony the bride and groom strolled through the city bathed in sunshine to reach the historic Nottingham City council building in Market Square for their reception. They were applauded by passers-by as they went!

Dreaming Of Couture? Dreams Really Can Come True

Dreaming Of Couture? Dreams Really Can Come True

Beautiful Couture Wedding Dresses by Baroque Couture in Derbyshire

If you’re dreaming of a totally bespoke wedding dress made just for you then look no further than Baroque Couture. Situated in the Derbyshire town of Draycott, Elaina Evans, owner and designer of this luxurious label, creates jaw-dropping couture bridal gowns for brides across the UK and Internationally. Her designs are dramatic, utterly romantic one-of-a-kind statement pieces made exclusively for each bride. Appointments are relaxed and one-to-one with Elaina whom herself radiates a calmness and grace which makes one feel safe in the hands of the fairy godmother of wedding gowns; as though with a simple swish of her cutting scissors your dream wedding dress will appear. It’s no surprise Elaina’s boutique offers a mouthwatering display of stunning dresses from her ‘Baroque Collection’ too. Overflowing with luxurious lace, satins and silks and frothy frills seemingly good enough to eat, sprinkled with bejewelled belts, lavish accessories and sparkly headdresses the boutique is a dream of bridal inspiration. And when I visited her beautiful store on what was a humid, oppressive day I was invited to sip cool lemonade and indulge in fresh strawberries as we chatted about her work. I could almost imagine she had a team of white mice stitching fine gold thread in her sewing room.

Exclusive! Over 50% OFF a selection of Baroque Couture gowns }

It must be two years now since I first met Elaina and she has been styling and designing for brides for many more than that but her eyes still light up with excitement as she talks about her creations; there is no doubt about her passion for every stitch that goes into making a Baroque Couture gown. I will be publishing my interview with Elaina on the blog in due course but I simply couldn’t wait to share with you some of these images from her collection.

You might be thinking couture is out of your reach but rest assured you can call Elaina without any hard sell or pushy sales talk and on average her wedding dresses start from around the £2500 mark BUT if that’s way off your budget – and because dreams really do come true – Elaina is offering a selection of gowns with a magical 50% or more off meaning you could land your dream dress for £1000 to £1500 so there is every reason to call her, mention me and book your appointment. – EJ x
