A Wedding At Chester Zoo.

The love of purple flashed through every element of Lynda’s wedding at Chester Zoo from flowers to shoes to jewellery. The bride originally would have liked to have been dressed in purple too, but instead chose to use the jewel colour to accent rather than dominate.

Lynda chose a soft platinum silk dupion for her gown teaming it with the purple shoes, jewellery and flowers. Her headpiece was designed to compliment perfectly by the lovely Jane at HF Couture.

Lynda took advantage of our personal dressing service and we arrived at the hotel to a very calm bride to be indeed. After steaming the gown and helping Lynda dress, we followed her to the zoo to make any final adjustments before meeting her husband to be.

Lynda married under the most beautiful blue sky and it was such a pleasure to have been part of her very special day. Thanks for the cookie, Lynda. Still warm and heavenly!

Weddings at Chester Zoo

Welcome to the new look of No. 9 Bridal Couture!


It’s been a crazy few months for us at No 9. Our first wedding fair this year saw us instantly ‘branded’ with a fantastic banner and cute little hand outs. We are now launching a brand new website and are currently waiting with baited breath for the images from our recent photo shoot with the amazing Rob Booker.

The new website will display our new collection including our opulent ‘Special Edition’ Tuscany gown along with some fabulous real brides images that are landing in our inbox! We will also have some super accessory images that can be purchased direct from us or ordered direct from our wonderful suppliers.

We’ve also been nominated for a 2012 wedding industry award which is super exciting and also have a few magazine features in the pipeline.

We hope to feature lots more of our lovely brides here on the new look blog, the next being the recent wedding we attended at Chester Zoo.
