Due to popular demand, we have booked another Augusta Jones designer day for Saturday 24th June. Come and see this beautiful collection of classic gowns with a contemporary twist. Book the date in your diary and call us to make an appointment.
We strongly recommend that you book an appointment for any of our events which will be strictly by appointment. Come along and join us for a glass of champagne when we share our celebrations with yours, and create the perfect bridal experience!
On Saturday 21st June, we will be holding our bridesmaids’ designer day with the full, new collections in store from Jim Hjelm and Alvina Valenta. These American-made dresses have chic and sophisticated styling. All dresses are selected by us to complement our beautiful bridal collections and come in a range of lengths, colours and fabric options. Our staff will be on hand to advise and recommend dresses to suit your party for a complete ‘look’.
To celebrate the arrival of Eliza Jane Howell’s collection in store we will be holding a designer day on 7th June. We are so excited to be showcasing the stunning full collection of beautifully-made beaded gowns. Some of the gowns in the collection are available in a range of colour options, including, ivory, white, red, black gold and silver so if you are looking for something quite unique and individual, this may be the collection for you!
Eliza Jane Howell also offers a stunning range of dresses for Mother of the bride. The dresses are elegant and stylish and perfect for a mum who is looking to add a hint of Hollywood glamour to the big day!
If you’re a thoroughly modern bride, but one who finds the glamour and sophistication of the past too alluring to leave out of her wedding plans, then we are here to reassure you that it really is possible to have the best of both worlds.
Vintage is very much on-trend as far as weddings are concerned. If you are drawn to vintage because you like sleek lines and a touch of sparkle (perhaps even a hint of colour) but don’t see yourself as the sort of bride who would scour markets and pre-loved sales for an authentic vintage gown, it doesn’t mean you can’t create a look that affords a nod to the past whilst focusing firmly on the present.
We have created many dresses over the years for brides who want something vintage – but new and unique. Those dresses have been some of the most amazing creations in our portfolio. But we have never found an ‘off the peg’ vintage collection that could blend together the past and the present at an affordable price point. Until we found Eliza Jane Howell. This stunning collection proves that it is possible to blend the old and the new, and to capture the fine detailing, simple shaping and subtle colouring of the 1920s, in a thoroughly accessible and up to date collection.
So…stop dreaming and start planning. Your new vintage look is just a call away.
