Catherine Deane Trunk Show
On the 19th January 2017, for one weekend only, we will be receiving the full Catherine Deane collection AND there will be 10% OFF all gowns purchased that weekend!
Catherine Deane has always been one of my favourite designers, I love everything about her collection, from the branding to her wedding dresses, and she’s even from Ireland!! Her family actually own a castle, yes a castle here.
We are looking forward to hosting our very first Catherine Deane Trunk Show, and as we have now opened our second, private changing room – we still have spaces available (two or three!)

New Exclusive Stockists of Catherine Deane!
We are beyond excited to announce that Ivory & Pearl are the exclusive stockists of Catherine Deane in Ireland!
I absolutely love these gowns, and can’t wait to get them in for brides to try on! Here is a sneak peak of the wedding dresses we are receiving, with a few of them arriving next week! Eek!
The Catherine Deane bridal collection is an exquisite adaptation of time-honoured techniques combined with contemporary design elements.
Catherine is passionate about taking something from the past and making it relevant to today whilst appreciating its original beauty.
Initially taking inspiration from vintage textiles, French lace and long forgotten craft, Catherine explored the natural world which provides an endless source of influential ideas. From the delicate beaded backs, inspired by dew drops on spider’s webs to the three dimensional embroidered flowers, her bridal collection is awash with nature’s jewels.
Sumptuous and luxurious, European fabrics include gossamer silk tulles and delicate laces from France and opulent silk charmeuse. These fine fabrics are adorned with subtle pearl and diamante embellishments creating a unique yet elegant look which evokes a feeling of refined whimsicality.
A new Wedding Dress Collection at Ivory & Pearl
Saturday night and I’m sitting in front of the T.V watching Alan Carr:Chatty Man, still working away! We had a really busy day today, meeting lots of new brides, I think there might just be one or two brides-to-be dreaming of wedding dresses tonight!! ;0) To be honest, I dream of them most nights!!!
Last week I had a fantastic trip in London, my mum (AKA my Buyer), my aunt (AKA my Accountant) and I headed over to London to see the 2014 collections. As Ivory & Pearl is only open, I was really only going over to be nosey! I was very relieved to see though, that we already do have the nicest wedding dresses of each of our bridal collections, I know I am biased, but I promise we do! I bought a few new wedding dresses, it’s so hard not to, which will be with us in September!
It was nice being the one visiting though, as it made me realise how different some dresses look when you try them on in comparison to seeing them on the hanger! This means that I might torture more brides in to trying completely different wedding dresses on to what they had imagined, as dresses really do look better on than they do hanging (and sometimes vice versa). It also made me realise how nice it is to get a cuppa when you arrive, I do always try to offer a cup of tea or coffee when anyone visits, if you do come and I don’t.. just ask. I sometimes just get caught up chatting about weddings and forget, or I’ve simply just ran out of milk (but Tescos in just across the road)!!
*New Wedding Dresses*
I am very, very excited though to be receiving NEW wedding dresses next month from Caroline Atelier, Caroline is based in Cork and her dresses are going to be stocked exclusively in Ivory & Pearl in Northern Ireland. Caroline Atelier have appeared in You and Your Wedding Magazine, Brides Magazine, the Wedding Journal Magazine and also won numerous awards for their wedding dresses!

Check out the photo below!! There is also a beautiful tulle wedding dress, and a fab high neck wedding dress, and.. you get the point I can’t wait to show our brides the new dresses!
I am off to finish a little bit of work, before my hubby and I head off to the Radisson Roe for Bank Holiday Monday, thanks to my lovely mother-in-law Of course I will be contactable via phone and e-mail (I never switch off!)

Claire Pettibone Designer Weekend
We are very excited to have over 35 of the Claire Pettibone 2012 and 2013 collection in the boutique over the weekend! Opening the boxes and taking out each of the dresses, I was a little bit in awe of how beautifully designed and created the wedding dresses are. If you are looking for a vintage wedding dress, I am certain you will be able to find something beautiful in Ivory & Pearl this weekend!
