Meet the team

It’s been a long process and a little behind schedule from designing our new collection, to showcasing it all on our brand new website, but I do want to introduce you to a few of our very good friends who have helped us with the process.

We’ve always loved Rob Booker‘s style of photography since he captured one of our client’s Nadia perfectly in her vintage gown. He then went on to  brilliantly encompass the very essence of vintage style in our first ever bridal collection. Rob is fabulous to work with and we are delighted many of our clients are choosing Rob as their preferred photographer.

The photography has played a massive part in the design of the new website. Rob’s images from our Vintage Collection and our new ‘Sirens’ collection as well as top UK wedding photographer Chris Hanley‘s pictures of our Special Edition ‘Tuscany’ gown, worn by the lovely Caroline Rosini, are all showcased beautifully.

The task to deliver the bespoke website was given to that of web designer Nick Carlton of Bist Media who designed our re-branding logo earlier this year. Nick was very excited to have such high quality images to use in the design of the site, and rather pleased to have an ‘Award Winning Designer’ on his own client list!

We called in Event Stylist, Abbey of Beau Collections who brought a selection of props including dressing table, chairs, chandelier and mirrors among others. Abbey’s attention to detail and aim for perfection was evident in the styling, even using a small, vintage Tiffany jewellery box as part of the set.

Make up artist Jo Bilham and hairdresser Kizzy Edkins of Charisma Hairdressing were given the brief of ‘Hollywood Sirens’ for the specific look we wanted to achieve and both worked together testing various styles and looks before taking to their respective brushes on the day of the shoot. We are especially delighted to have recommended Jo and Kizzy several times over the past few weeks!

Matching accessories to the gowns was easy. Two very special designers, award winning Jane Hardman Ferris of HF Couture and Suzanne of  Tiararama took to the task of supplying suitable headpieces to compliment each gown and achieve the desired look. Jane has become a trusted friend and we are delighted most of our clients choose her magnificent headpieces for their special day.

Absent on the day, but by no means forgotten  was our adopted florist Sarah of Leafy Couture. Sarah supplies ALL  of our floral artwork and is considered one of the counties finest florists. Not surprising that many of our clients chose Sarah for their wedding and along with Jane, Sarah has become a firm friend.

Not forgetting our beautiful models and very much ‘real women’ Ellie and Lily who modeled our current collection

Along with the website and our brand new collection, coming soon is our very first brochure.  Our aim is to offer brides-to-be  the opportunity to not only view our collection but also have immediate access to the wonderful industry suppliers who helped create ‘the look’. We get up close and personal with the team, tell you how we achieved the look and what accessories we used to co ordinate.

On a final note, we’d also like to say a huge thank you to the photographers whose amazing images have contributed to the new website in  the ‘Our Client’ section.
