Stunning Bridal Showroom

We are excited to be able to give a sneak preview of our new bridal showroom!

It’s a treasure trove of over 500 designs of tiaras and headpieces (one of the largest collections in Europe) as well as a large selection of gorgeous designer silk wedding dresses.

This fabulous trade showroom allows brides to see the full collections and meet the designer whilst bridal boutiques can browse the stock and discuss bespoke dresses to be designed exclusively for their store away from the usual hustle and bustle of the trade shows.

National Wedding Show Catwalk!

Twilight main

Just to let everyone know that for the very first time we’ll be showing a collection of our wedding dresses in a whole scene in the catwalk shows at the National Wedding Shows (both Olympia, London and the NEC, Birmingham).

We are really excited and can’t wait to see our designs come to life in the show. Rah Productions always do such a wonderful job staging these shows and we are sure that this season will be no exception.  We’ll be showing our 9 favourite dresses along with matching Ivory & Co. sparkling headdresses and accessories.

The catwalk shows are staged a few times each day of the show and allow thousands of brides to see some fabulous dresses in action.  As well as the catwalk show we will have the full range of Ivory & co. wedding dresses on our stand at the show so that brides can come along and try on the dress of their dreams!

We have a vast selection of dresses – everything from full romantic gowns, elegant column dresses, Great Gatsby inspired 1920’s styles and tea length vintage 1950’s gowns. So come along to your nearest National Wedding Show to meet us, talk all things wedding and maybe find the perfect dress for your big day!

As the designer of all these dresses I’ll also be on hand with my sketchbook if anyone is looking for something really unique to them or wants a variation on one of our designs. I’ll be happy to help….

Our team of accessory experts will also be there at the next stand offering perfectly matching tiaras, headpieces, jewellery and veils – so in one day it will be possible to get a complete head to toe look that you’ll be thrilled with. (Our staff are trained in giving advice on which accessories best suit the gowns, and certain face shapes, wedding themes etc… so leave it to our professionals to take the stress out of deciding your definitive ‘wedding look’).

We look forward to seeing you there……..

Bridal Buyer Award Submission!

If anyone was wondering why we have been so unusually quiet on the blogfront last week – it was because of a very industrious last push to send the best possible award submission for the Bridal Buyer Awards 2013!

Last year we entered for the first time and were ecstatic to be shortlisted which meant attending the fantastic Award ceremony held each March as part of the BBEH trade show in Harrogate.  It was a fabulous evening made really special by the fact that when it came round to announcing our category we all waited on our table for what seemed like forever ….. before they called our name to win “Best Bridal Headdress Designer 2012” It was very nerve wracking (Oscar style!)

So this year we have worked incredibly hard to compile a new submission in the hope of retaining our title – or at the least be shortlisted as a finalist again.

The list of finalists is announced in January, so we will keep you posted as soon as we know anything.  Please keep your fingers crossed out there for us and in the meantime now that the deadline of the year is over – we’ll get blogging again………
