We had the golden tickets & upon our arrival we were greeted by one of our favourite gowns, Katelyn !

With glass of fizz in hand it was time to see the new Belladonna Collection, this is Wendy Makin’s affordable range of gowns, they are so lightweight & easy to wear, perfect for any wedding at home or abroad, prices start from £799.

The peplum style seems to be a new addition to bridal fashion at the moment, rock that peplum girls !

Then we had the big announcement !  We were the first stockists in the world to preview the new ready to wear collection by Wendy Makin & OMG we just loved them all xx

It’s such refreshing change to see non-strapless gowns, don’t get me wrong strapless gowns are beautiful but I think its time to see more straps & bodices, strapless gowns have become a little too predictable, especially for guests going to your wedding !

The ready to wear collection has been created to fill the price gap between affordable & couture, prices for the ready to wear collection will start from £1499 with many of the styles having a sleeveless or strapless option, which we love.

As an added extra the ready to wear collection is available with a choice of belts, chic pearl, vintage sparkle or just glam !

In between an afternoon tea is was time to shortlist the gowns to grace our boutique rails…decisions, decisions, decisions…we have to buy each gown sadly we do not get given gowns for free…I wish !

Gowns ordered, afternoon tea eaten there was only one very important task to do & that’s have a quick photo taken with Australia’s multi award winning bridal designer, the Queen of bridal ‘Wendy Makin’.  Wendy is such a lovely person, with her designs setting the trends in bridal we just love having her beautiful gowns & our Elegance Bride’s love them too !

What a perfect afternoon and perfect way to spend my 8th Wedding Anniversary with John Carr xx
