The Luxury Wedding Show London

We had a fabulous outing to Londons premier wedding event at the Saatchi Gallery yesterday. Our luxurious day was filled with perusing the best designer collections London had to offer, cake tasting, tiara trying and sipping Pommery champagne whilst we sat back and took in the grand catwalk show.

The show saw the likes of Stewart Parvin, Temperley London, Vivienne Westwood and Amanda Wakeley to name a few, but the absolute show stealer had to be the truely innovative London designer David Fielden.

This year’s collection sees David, who recently celebrated 30 years as a bridal designer, pushing against the boundaries of conventional design using exquisite silk satins, delicate French lace and intricate trims combined with luxurious textures and flowing silhouettes. With uncompromising attention to detail and using cutting edge techniques all David’s pieces are made and hand finished in London.

The 2012 collection contains creative, modern and avant- garde pieces, fashion forward yet sophisticated and elegant true to David’s design philosophy which is ‘Never to be subjected to the limitations of tradition’.


Jenny Packham featured looks

To celebrate our much-awaited upcoming designer day with Jenny Packham on 17th December 2011, and the launch of her inspirational new 2012 collection, many of the looks from which will be featured here in our boutique, we have put together a few of our favourite looks from existing Jenny Packham collections.

Jenny Packham is a world renowned British designer known for her glamorous, vintage-inspired style and we are proud to be her premier stockist in the area.

One of our favourite gowns is ‘Imari’ in Champagne pictured here with the stunning ‘Poppy’ headpiece also by Jenny Packham, and ‘Carmen’ shoes by Rachael Simpson.  We feel that these pieces complement each other impeccably and would be ideal for an elegant, art-deco bride with a strong sense of style.

Our second featured look from Jenny Packham is the stunning ‘Luna’ gown pictured here with the ‘Santorini’ ostrich feather shrug in platinum.  We feel that the 'Acacia III' headpiece and matching 'Acacia' cuff both in vintage silver, also by Jenny Packham, would be the perfect addition to this look for a bride who is looking for opulent glamour with a vintage twist. We have matched this with the stunning ‘Astor’ strappy shoe by Benjamin Adams, which we feel provides the final note of stylish sparkle to this unique look.

Please don’t forget to make your appointments for our Jenny Packham designer day on 17th December 2011 as there are limited places available and we would love to see you there!

Show Time!

We were thrilled to be asked to do our first celebrity wedding held at Bath's prestigeous Royal Crescent Hotel.
Pans People dance Dee Dee Wilde & Henry Marsh, musician and composer, had the most fun packed wedding full of the most beautiful people, many of whom had flown in from New York to celebrate these very special nuptials.
The room was full of musical talent from all genres of music from Broadway to King Crimson but the star of this show was Dee dee Wilde who stunned her guests in her uber cool David Fielden silk gown in the palest of blush pink (so current and on trend, see Designer Wedding Show Story!).
 Dee Dee you looked so beautiful - we wish you & Henry everlasting Happiness.
