We have completely fallen in love with Temperley's clothes and we know you will too!  Her  pieces are so utterly cutting-edge and yet so timeless that they can be kept in your wardrobe and revisited with delight time and time again!


All the fun of the fair...

We are now back from the White Gallery, the designer bridal event of the year, and have almost fully recovered!  Every year at the beginning of May, all of the top designers in the bridal industry gather in order to display their fabulous new collections to stockists.  The whole event is a whirlwind of fashion shows, fabrics, embellishments, stunning new designs and a little drop of champagne!

We met with all of our existing designers and some new ones too and loved all of the new collections.  We have now selected our favourite pieces which are being cut as we speak and will be winging their way to us very soon!  Please do come in and see us and be one of the first brides in the new 2013 collections!!

We would love to share all of our 'insider snaps' with you but I'm afraid the new designs need to stay under wraps for a little while longer, but rest assured we will be posting them as soon as we can!

Gorgeous floral design at the show


The very best of British!

We are feeling very patriotic here at Carina Baverstock Couture today as the Olympic torch is due to pass right through Bradford-on-Avon.  Everywhere you look people are celebrating being British, and of course our lovely Duchess of Cambridge is no exception.  Seen stepping out as a guest of honour at a star-studded gala dinner Friday night celebrating Great Britain's Olympic athletes.

The Duchess wore eye-catching bright turquoise Jenny Packham gown with lace detailing, which our keen Jenny Packham brides will recognise as a variation of the celebrated 'Aspen' gown (pictured below). The beautiful shade of turquoise was chosen especially for Kate who favours all shades of blue.  I think we can all agree that she has done it again; she looks stunning and is a fantastic ambassador for British style!


Holly Willoughby wearing Suzanne Neville

Our favourite primetime princess, Holly Willoughby was seen wearing British Designer Suzanne Neville this weekend on the Voice.

The short black Chantilly lace dress is fitted at the waist with a low plunging neckline with exaggerated shoulders and a fitted skirt it has been designed and made especially for Holly in Suzanne Neville's London studio this week. 

All our Suzanne Neville brides know what Holly knows... that nothing makes your figure look as good as Suzanne's corsetry!!

A visit from Rachel Simpson!

The lovely and very glamorous Rachel Simpson came to see us this week as she had chosen Carina Baverstock Couture as the first of her new season appointments with selected stockists to show her outstanding new collection of handmade vintage inspired shoes!
