Here is a selection of  dresses available to purchase but there will be lots more on the day!


Azalea by Jenny Packham. The queen of sparkle has achieved a wonderfully flowing boho effect with her layers of silk, tulle and beadwork. This dress has its own train that stretches out from the base of the back. A low back ( in a very Claire Pettibone style) reveals the beadwork against your skin. A size 12 sample in VERY good condition. This is an opportunity for a true Packham fan to have one of her most iconic gowns.


Dentelle by Jenny Packham is a very classic look for those brides after a truly romantic feel to their dress. A flowing silk chiffon skirt is nipped in at the waist with a vintage sparkly waistband and full lace top. The neckline sits high like Grace Kelly’s but slightly softer. This dress is perfect for willowy girls and curvy alike. Size 12 sample but will happily fit a 14 or can be adjusted down if you are smaller.

Joy by Jenny Packham is a gold bombshell of sequins with the best waistband ever! She has a lovely high neck and open back so you can wear a bra or not. Great to show off your bum and small waist.

Damask by Jenny Packham. This is a true antique jewel with full beaded tops, dropped waist detail around the hips and floaty skirt. Perfect for those who want to show off their hips and bum! Slight grey tones in the beading gives an aged look and relaxed character. Size 12.

Lusan Mandongus LM2212b. This floaty, lacey and tulle fitted dress has a very low back and structure in the bust. Wonderful for both busty and willowy brides. A long light train follows you and not one single bead makes an appearance here so if you love lace and only lace – tadaa! Size 12.

Claire Pettibones Yolanda is a true boho brides dream. She is cool and understated for those having a laid back wedding. However the delicate crocheted lace is the most exquisite example of country-chic at its best. The back is transparent and capped sleeves allow for a good bra to be worn. A gentle fishtail shows your figure in a soft unstructured way. The muted lavender flower and champagne silk ribbon are the main detail. Size 12 but will fit a 14 or easily adjusted to a smaller size.

Claire Pettibones Queen Annes Lace. This is a lightweight cotton underskirt with stunning delicate lace creating an empire-line top. Champagne ribbons tie under the bust and will suit a smaller girl as this sample is a size 8. For those brides who like a looser fitting skirt.

Charlotte Balbiers Flora is an oh so cool dress for brides not wanted a lot of frill or fuss. A simple chiffon a-line skirt it topped with a structured high neck and capped sleeves. The sparkly peter-pan collar gives the finishing touch to this babe of a dress! If you love being nipped in there is a fab strength to the waist and top. Size 12-14. Wonderful condition.

Charlotte Balbier’s Sweetpea is a very cute tea-dress with delicate capped sleeves and lace covered back made in champagne lace dotted with glass beads. For an unusual or comfort-focussed bride. This dress is a breath of fresh air as its is so comfy and allows you to rock a fab pair of heels! Size 12-14.

Charlotte Balbier’s Nora. This little lady is a longer sleeved tea-dress with a lovely light bodice and skirt. She is a size 12 and will alter easily. Creative brides might add a coloured netting underskirt.

Charlie Brear’s 1940’s lace dress is in a stunning dark ivory colour with a silk lining and puddle train. This is a bias cut dress so will hug your figure and show off your curves. Suits both curvy and willowy brides. The back cowl is low so will require a low back bra. A timeless classic which you can add your own sash, sleeves or back-lace to. Size 14.

David Feilden’s 8062 is a sexy, gold tone with a silk slip underneath and full lace overdress. Long lace sleeves balance out the low back and figure hugging cut of the gown. The bust line is low cut so small-busted brides will be happier in this gown. There is a long train and single fine layer of tulle over the skirt.  Size 12.

David Fielden’s 8082. This is a stunning fitted silk dress topped with a dusting of tulle which gives a full skirt but without the full weight. The back has a lace edged key-hole centre and tiny glass beads and sequins.

We have many more dresses from David Fielden, Charlotte Balbier and Ian Stuart available on sale so please come along and browse.

A selection of bridal accessories will also be available on sale.

See you all then! x x x x
