#ivoryandpearlbrideciara

Let’s be honest.. whatever dress Ciara put on she would have been stunning, but she looks exceptionally beautiful in this stunning Catherine Deane gown, and these photographs are amazing! I love receiving these photographs in my inbox, and it’s not very often I get time to upload them to my website, so this really is a real treat! I’ll let the photographs do the talking, as I go take my children out of the biscuit cupboard at 9:06am with the picnic bag and the plan to have a snack in the other room .. away from mummy and dear knows what delights included – I would say a lot of chocolate!!!!

Love Kate

#ivoryandpearlbrideStephanie

Stephanie wore the ABSOLUTELY Stunning Sierra gown by Anna Campbell and she chose it in bone – which is a very soft grey, she looked gorgeous.

Stephanie had a destination wedding, and Anna Campbell is perfect for the hotter climates and for travelling long distances!

Here are a few snaps !!

#ivoryandpearlbride Aimee

The beautiful Aimee flew over from France to find the “one”, originally from Whitehead it was a nice excuse to meet up with all her family and friends. Aimee and her mum own a beauticians in France, and for me that conjures up all sorts of lovely images. Aimee did all of her research online .. my kind of bride ;) and came with a clear idea in her head.. and first shop, first appointment the dress was bought.

Aimee also gave up smoking about 6 months before her wedding.. and how amazing does she look as well as kicking the habit.. it was worth it Aimee.. you look amazing! 

Aimee says: 

“Hi Kate, 
I have attached some pictures of my magical wedding day in France. Everything was perfect, the sun was shining, about 29°, not too hot just right. I felt absolutely beautiful in my gorgeous dress which fitted me perfectly ! Thank you for helping me find the most incredible dress! 
Thank you again for everything! 
Mrs Watson <3 “

Real Bride Alert ➳ ➳ ➳

Can you tell that we are a little quieter this week? I am actually getting a chance to get caught up on paper work, and blogging… it’s a dream! When it comes to who we feature on our blog, it is literally down to right bride, right time, the lovely Rebecca sent me these images last week which was perfect timing as I have time this evening to do a blog! If you did buy your dress at Ivory & Pearl, we would ABSOLUTELY love to see it all come together! Ideally the professional photographs, send them to kate@ivoryandpearl.com and we will keep adding real bride images here throughout the summer!

Back to Rebecca, she purchased the beautiful Eden by Claire Pettibone. However, unfortunately she had Breast Cancer, and had to go through nine surgeries in total, therefore she wanted to customise it a little to hide the scars on her back and side from her reconstruction! So…  she added sleeves, which look absolutely amazing, and is happy to say that she’s feeling fine and couldn’t be happier!!

Rebecca and her hubby married at Villa Cipressi, Varenna, Lake Como. You would never believe Rebecca looks 55, and she herself says especially considering what she’s been through, she doesn’t think she looks too bad. Well.. given what you have been through and at 55, we thinking you look blooming amazing!!! It also takes courage to wear a blue wedding dress on your wedding day, and we are so pleased you chose to push the boat out and wear a dress that was so different, you look absolutely gorgeous!



P.S. The headdress and Veil are from ‘ What Katy Did Next’ and the shoes were preloved ‘Emmy.’

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
