Real Bride Alert

Well it would appear we have been in hibernation! I need to get back into blogging, especially of our gorgeous brides! Believe it or not, in about 4 weeks time we get a little quieter, as all of our summer brides will have collected and may be even had their wedding day, so fingers crossed I will have more time to blog! 

Today we are kicking off our end of hibernation with Kate, who was an absolute delight to deal with! She had spied this Claire Pettibone dress before, and as soon as she put it on it looked amazing! Of course, we tried on other Claire Pettibone, to make sure it was the one but nothing compared! 

Kate brought her son and daughter to the fittings, and I have to say they were an absolute credit to her, they were so mannerly and just so delighted and happy for their mum that she was having her dream day! When Kate collected I had just had my baby boy, Jack and she bought me a beautiful framed poem “if” for him as her son had it too!

It’s been so nice looking through Kate’s photographs and seeing the little touches, the venue is Orange Tree which is one of my all time favourite venues as well! Thank you Kate for buying your dress at Ivory & Pearl, and telling your family and friends about us 🙂 

Kate’s hubby also owns Fresh Graphics, who I am getting some cards printed with at the moment, so if you need anything printed, check him out here: Fresh Graphics

I’ll be back … in the not too distant future!

Love Kate

An Ivory & Pearl Bride in a Claire Pettibone Gown

As you all know I am a big Claire Pettibone lover!! How could I not really, her dresses are just amazing, so intricate, ornate, different, just absolutely stunning!! Claire Pettibone’s dresses are just so different from other designers, not only that, her dresses are so different from each other!! I also love her use of colour, okay, okay, that’s enough, I hear ya! I am so happy with our designers at the moment though, I am having a lot of fun choosing new dresses, and can honestly say we have amazing gowns! Only more stunning  gowns to come.. next blog.. a designer we currently have but new dresses arriving in March… wait until you see them!!!

For now, I’ll leave you with Deborah in her gorgeous Claire Pettibone Kristene gown with the low back – love a good low back! Photos by Kat Mervyn, who will be at our open night on 17th February 2015 (just saying!!)

Love Kate
