Such a fab dress & a fab story today for our #beforeandafter
As soon as Elena came into the shop and told us about her dress we just KNEW it was going to be amazing.
The full story of Elena’s dress is on our blog (link in bio) I think it’s my favourite wedding dress shopping story to date!! 🥂
We TOTALLY changed her 1930’s silk gown, removing the sleeves and modernising it. It was the fabric that Elena fell in love with, and after a clean and a press, the tone of the fabric totally came back to life. We also lined the dress, because...pants, and that gave a beautiful weight to the dress.
SO SO pleased with the results of this, it’s always a pleaseure to re-work vintage gowns, and we had a blast working with Elena along the way! ➡️ to see her wedding day pics and also a peek of her amazing gold Manolo’s! 👌🏼 Mega mega thanks to Elena for being such a fun bride to work with.

I always lap up the insider knowledge from make up artists - in another life I think I would have liked to be a make up artist - so I was delighted to help Alana from @glossmakeupbyalana
with the design for her Wedding Countdown Checklist. We all know great make up starts with great skin - but how to get it? And when should you do what in the lead up to the wedding to avoid those new product dramas?! Alana has also recently launched an amazing course for brides teaching you how to do your own make up on your wedding day. Whether you’re eloping, prefer to do your make up yourself (🙋🏻♀️like me!), or perhaps hiring a MUA isn’t in your budget, she shares all her professional know how to help you look and feel your best on your wedding 💅🏻 such a brilliant idea!

A favourite from this week 😍
Let me just paraphrase here for a second: “I knew it was something special with Aileen because it just wasn’t hard work.” ♥
That’s the perfect relationship, right? One that ‘just isn’t hard work’? I think the truth of it with Chris and Aileen though is that they do work very hard. They work hard on their health, their work, their independence, their happiness as humans. And because of that it fits together like the simplest jigsaw pieces in the world. They just don’t have to work hard WITH EACH OTHER. ♥
That’s definitely my ideal, and I don’t think I’ve had that yet. What do you think you need to make your relationship flow? ♥ ps two of my closest friends got married and it was a fucking winner.
Like love, and the unknowable, autumn gradually comes into being. A growing sense that something magical is happening starts to become apparent and more visible day by day.
The special colour palette of autumn is expressive and vivid, the last hurrah from nature before winter. Autumn weddings have a special feel in this fleeting moment.
The majestic nature of autumn can be fully appreciated and celebrated with the addition of an essential bridal shawl or wrap. In finest knitted cashmere you will be warm, with the versatility, balance and beauty to adapt all through your special day.
Enjoy the stunning misty mornings, wonderful low-sun days, and the crisp clear evenings with the lightness and comfort that only our special shawls can bring.
