We have had a lovely busy start to the new year and hearing from our beautiful real brides and sharing memories of their special day with us.
Our real bride Naomi looked amazing on her big day with such an incredible venue and backdrop of The Monastery in Manchester.
She looked beautiful in a fitted Atelier Lyanna wedding dress covered in a delicate lace detail, Naomi customised her wedding dress by adding full sleeves which looked like they were always meant to be with her dress. She finished off her look wearing a stunning pair of sapphire earrings from her granny, her mum's ruby ring and our cathedral length barely there wedding veil Skylar in ivory.
Naomi's Memorable Moment
"We had Call on Me by Janis Joplin as our first dance. We weren't really looking forward to the first dance so had made some people promise to come and join us at a certain point in the song which they did closely followed by the rest of the guests which made it the best first dance we could have asked for!"
Thank you so much Naomi for sharing elements of your day with us and to Kerry Thomas from 2 Ducks Galleries for your beautiful photographs.
It makes our day when we see images of our real brides on their most special day, whether they are wearing a full collection or one beautiful statement item we love to see them all.
Our real bride Emma definitely did just that when getting in touch about her amazing wedding day celebrated in Wheaton Illinois! They had a beautiful intimate day with only 16 of their nearest and dearest congratulating them into their married life.
Emma looked amazing in a beautiful full skirted, long sleeve dress with an incredible low back and covered in amazing lace! She finished off her look perfect with half up hair style showing of her statement crystal and pearl drop earrings Cora. Doesn't she look beautiful!
Emma's family is British and she incorporated her heritage through elements of her day. Her bouquet was a delicate bunch of dried English lavender which is said to represent love, loyalty, devotion and luck. Her hair was held together perfectly with a gorgeous Celtic comb, a necklace gifted from family in England and our beautiful Cora earrings handmade in our little workshop in Bradford-on-Avon.
Thank you so much Emma for sharing elements of your special day with us and to Cling and Peck wedding photographers for the beautiful images.
There is something absolutely beautiful and our real brides really know how to make them into the most picturesque memory.
Our real bride Deborah looked absolutely incredible during her wedding day in the picturesque country house in Aberdeenshire. The perfect venue to host their family and friends during their beautiful day. Whilst wearing a gorgeous full skirted dress Savoy by Suzanne Neville, she finished her look off perfectly with our single tier cut edge wedding veil Niacae in a church length. A very beautiful bride!
Thank you so much Deborah for sharing these beautiful images of your special day and to Apricot Tree Wedding Photography & Video for capturing every moment.
There is something special about finding the perfect accessories for your wedding day, but there is something so memorable about your bridesmaid gifting you the perfect veil!
Our real bride Ashley had an amazing sunny wedding day surrounded by her incredible bridesmaids who gifted her our fingertip length two tier delicate lace edged wedding veil Ada in off-white which complimented her dress perfectly and added an extra touch of lace to her bridal look.
The weather was completely on their side as they were able to walk between to their wedding venue from the beautiful church by the river Wye.
Ashley's Memorable Moments
"I was given one of your veils (two tier Ada) as a present from one of my bridesmaids (an old friend from university) and it was beautiful, so simple and classic. It was everything I wanted in a veil and completed my outfit on the day. It was also a fabulously thoughtful gift as it will be something to keep and hand down to other girls in my family."
"I loved how personal it was to us. We made so many of our decorations ourselves from the confetti and paper pom-poms to painting old wooden oars in our rowing club colours and getting two old wooden boats into the marquee as decorations."
Thank you so much Ashley for sharing parts of your special day with us and thank you to Ben Rodford Photography for your beautiful photos.
We absolutely could not resist sharing these beautiful images of our real bride Lauren on her wedding day! Every bride longs for the perfect weather on her special day and Lauren couldn't have asked for anything better to give the perfect picturesque winter scene... it SNOWED!!!
Not only does Lauren look incredible in her beautiful multi-layer Ruffle A-Line dress by Enzoani with it's detailed bodice and sleeves but she also looks so happy and you can tell she had the perfect day. Her look fits the winter wonderland perfectly and finishing it off with our gold flower and crystal wedding hair comb Titania and our freshwater pearl wedding bracelet Addie.
She looks incredible!
Lauren's Memorable Moments
"It snowed just at the right time, when I was walking down the aisle to the photos straight after."
"We donated to the MS Society instead of favours as this is a cause close to our hearts."
Thank you so much Lauren for sharing these incredible photos of your wedding day and to Rachel Joyce Photography for catching such beautiful moments.
Creating the perfect family celebration our real bride Bonnie looks like they had the most amazing day getting married surrounded by their closest family and friends and had their beautiful daughters adding that little touch of magic to the day!
Bonnie looked like the perfect bride wearing a beautiful full lace fitted dress from Phase Eight, she finished off her bridal look perfectly with our floor length single tier cut edge silk style wedding veil Isabella in ivory and topped with a gorgeous fresh flower headpiece which matches her bouquet in every way.
" Hello. I just wanted to give you some feedback regarding the Isabella floor length veil in ivory I wore for my wedding in October. I knew I wanted a Britten veil as soon as I came across your website, even from the images I knew they were beautifully made. I found the real bride blog really useful. I ordered the swatches to begin with and when they arrived I couldn't believe how silky soft they were. I immediately knew which colour matched my dress and ordered the veil which was delivered within days.
On my wedding day I didn't take it off once, I wore it from start to finish. I felt it complimented my dress and made me feel more bridal - more wow 😊 I loved it."
Bonnie's Memorable Moments.
Our eldest daughter, Harriett aged 6, reading a love poem
A quote or reading from your ceremony - you've been in Love:
"You've been in love, you know what it's like. It's a sense of delight. Not just in the person you love but in all people in yourself, in life. Suddenly you see beauty, excitement everywhere.You're not afraid to express your love; passionately, gently in words or in silence. You feel strong, generous, fully alive."
Such a touching poem from your daughter read on your wedding day! Thank you so so much Bonnie for sharing such lovely memories of your special day and to Cahill Photography for the incredible photos of their beautiful day.

She is wearing Clarissa which is a fully beaded wedding dress designed Eliza Jane, absolutely gorgeous how intricate and detailed her dress truly is! She completed her bridal look with our full lace edged wedding veil Coria in off-white and church length!
Miriam's Memorable Moments
"My Grandma going out of her way to shove the entire contents of her confetti down my bra"
"Chance surprised me with a personalised video from a couple of American singers I love during our service singing my favourite song of theirs (Jenny and Tyler: This is just so beautiful). He also arranged for one of our favourite street musicians to be outside the church playing she's always a woman to me on his accordion if was amazing!"
"The speeches were so special too - Chance, his best man Jordan, my Dad and myself all spoke."
It looks like they had the most amazing day and we love that your photographer managed to capture your grandma and the confetti moment!

Our real bride Terri looks like she had the most incredible wedding day! She describes it as the 'best day of her life!' at the gorgeous Houchins Wedding Barn near Colchester.
Terri looked absolutely incredible wearing a fully embroidered a-line gown with a beautifully detailed sweetheart neckline and a low v-back. Wearing her Hollywood dress from Enzoani in a stunning colour of ivory, silver and mocha, it suits her perfectly! She finished off her look with our wedding hair pins with freshwater pearl spray Eve in silver to match the beautiful detail on her dress.
"Thursday the 5th October 2017 was amazing in every way, from the beaming sunshine, the atmosphere, the beautiful colours of the trees and gardens and we also had an incredible venue and team on hand throughout the whole day.
We’ve always envisioned what our wedding would look like – autumnal, rustic and classic looking – so it’s no surprise that we decided on Houchins Farm as our venue. The stunning décor, the natural wild gardens and the old 15th century Grade 2 listed farmhouse, the most beautiful and picturesque wedding venue.
With the help from the team at Houchins Farm, we were able to make the day look exactly how we envisioned, along with our amazing florist, Anna Dixon of Sprig Flowers we chose the most stunning and characteristic flowers, which got a huge amount of compliments! The day went absolutely brilliantly from start to finish.
There is something special about every brides wedding day, whether it's the little details they place throughout their day, a little secret to the decorations between her and her husband/wife! or the beautiful details that have gone into everyone's outfits in the bridal party.
I am really excited to share with you our real bride Sarah. She looked incredible with a Watters Gracia skirt customised to add a beautiful blue silk lining, a lovely bodice from Catherine Deane Darla and a gorgeous bespoke lace cropped top made especially for Sarah by Agape Bridal. I absolutely love the affect of the delicate lace with her blue silk and soft net skirt! She finished her look with our fingertip length two tier cut edge Saria wedding veil! A perfect bridal look and an incredible way to add your something blue!
Thank you so much for sharing these little details and photos of your wedding day, I absolutely love the reading! Thank you to SMH Photography for your beautiful photographs.
There is something so beautifully classic about our single tier cut edge Niacae wedding veil with how it suits so many bridal styles.
Our real bride Angela was an absolutely beautiful bride on her wedding day! Wearing a gorgeous Caroline Castigliano dress with an intricate lace bodice with an incredible full skirt! She finished off her look perfectly with our single tier cut edge Niacae wedding veil in ivory and floor length. It's clever design blends in perfectly with the beautiful skirt on her wedding dress.
I am absolutely in love with Angela's something blue! She completed the tradition with a gorgeous pair of blue satin Hangisi heels by Manolo Blahnik! They are beautiful and the perfect pop of blue during her special day.
Thank you so much Angela for sharing images of your wedding day with us and to Giorgia Gonzo Photography for your incredible pictures.
