The dress for Amy was a lucky find. Straight off our sale rail, it was a dress from Wendy Makin, and fitted Amy almost perfectly!
 

Antoinette

A summer wedding at The Carriage Hall in Plumtree for our lovely bride Antoinette and Alex (who looked very smart in his kilt!) was everything it should be.
It was a beautifully sunny summer's day. Antoinette wore the Irene gown from Wendy Makin, a classically stylish wedding dress, that is relaxed and easy to wear.

Heather

Heather and Tom had a great day at Norwood Park where they celebrated their wedding in style. Wearing the ever lovely Pippa dress from the French Collection by Wendy Makin, Heather looked relaxed and oh so happy.

Hannah

Hannah and Chris got married at Brecon Cathedral on the 7th April and had a wonderful day. A very special part of their wedding was that Chris' dad conducted the service.

Hannah found her dress on our sale rail! It suited her perfectly and with the addition of a veil from Richard Designs and a sparkly belt from Windsor Bridal Jewellery, the look was complete. The dress was Joceline from the French Collection.

Sarah

Sarah and Rob had a fabulous day at The Pumping House, Ollerton, as their photos show! It was a relaxed, small affair full of fun and laughter.
Sarah wore the Georgia dress from Watters in champagne and ivory. She teamed it up with a chapel length veil from Richard Designs and a snug faux fur shrug to keep out the October chill.

Sophie

Sophie and Jason had a small and very happy wedding at East Lodge Hotel in the Derbyshire Peak district.
Sophie had come to us looking for an easy to wear dress that she would feel relaxed in. Something that would suit her style and character. And we had one just for her, hanging on our sale rail!
The clever design of Sophie's Linea Raffaelli dress was partly down to it's detachable outer skirt. Like a veil, tulle trimmed with lace, the outer skirt could be removed making the elegant column style dress beneath perfect for a fun celebration.
The open back and Belgian lace gave the dress a modern twist too.

Our Favourite Dress for the Winter

We had to pick the sublime Lexi dress from Wendy Makin's Couture Collection for our winter special.
She has a very simple and elegant line that just sings with something special in the hand-beaded and highly jewelled bodice. The diamante gems are threaded over sheer tulle and the back appears as if the jewels are shimmering on bare skin.
The soft skirt is made of layers of ivory silk tulle over super slinky silk satin beneath.
Not just a great dress for the wow factor but also for sheer comfort.
Lexi is made to measure too, ensuring a perfect fit.
