Susie & Elijah’s Wedding
14th February 2015
“The look of love, that sideward glance”
Who doesn’t love a real wedding blog? I know, I love them! I always say, when trying dresses on – you have to visualise yourself with your hair done, make up done, heels on… and that glow that only brides ever have! Susie was great at imagining how her wedding would turn out! The last girl to get married, and now all married and off to America to live. Susie finished off her look with beautiful baby breath in her bouquet and in her hair. What beautiful images, and what a beautiful couple!
It was a real joy having Susie and her family l in the boutique.
PS- I have to point out, the amazing bow, which my dress maker made for her – oh she is so talented!!

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!!)
A Gorgeous Claire Pettibone Bride
I hope you’re all having a lovely relaxing Sunday!! We have had a great Sunday, Daisy slept from midnight through to 8am, up for 20mins and down again until 11am… which was just what I needed!! We then walked through St. George’s Market, bought a few prints from Mark Graham Fine Art and Daisy’s first Christmas decoration from Gail Gilmore Ceramics… then we ventured on into Belfast, bought socks, bottles and all those really exciting things!! Then off for dinner with my family to Scalini’s, my dad is in Russia at the moment and returns tomorrow, which I can’t wait for! Home to X Factor Results.. yes, I admit it, I follow it!! And now I thought I’d treat you all to a blog of Niamh’s wedding.. she was a real treat to have in the boutique! Every time she came in, I asked where she’d bought her outfit as she was dressed amazingly! Niamh looked just amazing in this gown, the first time she tried it on we all just fell in love with it, and the second time she visited, she tried on lots (just to make sure).. looked amazing in them all and then popped on Viola again and we all just knew it was the one!
Today I’m sharing Emma Jenkinson’s wedding, and it’s honestly amazing! She really had the absolute dream team for her wedding and suppliers in the bridal world who I would happily have do my own wedding, from Electric Alphabet to Alise Taggart Styling, Lynette Murray Hair to This Modern Love photography, from Jennifer Ireland Make up.. to her fabulous wedding dress from Ivory & Pearl ;)! Go check them all out 🙂
I just loved Emma’s Mums reaction when she put the dress on, she said she “I love it from my heart”! It was lovely having them both in the boutique and as you’ll see the dress is amazing on- one of my personal favourites!
I will now leave you with the photos, which are just incredible.. enjoy and have a great weekend!
It has been a busy summer but I have absolutely loved every minute of it. Getting to meet so many lovely brides as they come in to find the perfect dress for the Big Day is so exciting. One of my favorite parts of this job is seeing the pictures of our brides on their wedding day! Seeing them in their dream dress and seeing all the little details of the day is such a joy. I got really excited when Beka and Eddie sent us some of the beautiful snaps from their special day. They got married in May in the idyllic surrounds of Montalto Estate. Beka looked stunning in her exquisite Anna Maier wedding dress. The beautiful one shoulder dress with a delicate lace overlay is so unique and I think you will all agree that Beka looked absolutely beautiful.
I’m excited to meet more lovely brides on the search for the perfect dress for their Big Day.
Love, Sara xxx
