When the sun shines here there is no better place to be. So we have to take advantage of it while we can.
Here are some photos of dresses we have for you so when you are ready to come and try some on just give us a ring and make an appointment.
Would you and your friends and family be up for fun challenges to give you the wedding day of your dreams?
Wedding Day Winners (working title) is a brand new Saturday night entertainment show. Each show will see two couples take part on their wedding day. Before they say "I do" their friends and family must compete in a series of games to win prizes on their behalf. Each couple then go head-to-head for a chance to win a luxurious honeymoon. Once the games have finished it’s time for each couple to celebrate at their own wedding reception.
We're looking for engaged couples who are interested in taking part.
Wedding Day Winners (working title) is produced for the BBC by Panda Television
It's been a busy month and as well as working on dresses for my summer weddings I decided to help with an exhibition of Wedding Dresses over the past 200years. So vintage dresses have been influencing my ideas and being an inspiration.
But as the Exhibition covered up to present day my own dress and some of my former brides dresses where on show.
This is Caroline's dress. Photo by Stuart Macrory an excellent wedding photographer based on the Ards Peninsula.
This silk dress, which was on display, and its beading detail looks vintage but in fact the wedding was Feb 2017. It's lovely simple understated shape shows off the brides figure and sature with its empire line and the way it flows into a tiny train. If you look close into the two tulle layers over the silk you can see each beaded motif is outlined by a silver chain stitch. The flowers and leaves inspired by the Irish hedge rows of the Whitethorn. Each edge from the neckline to the hem has an ivory satin stitched embroidery highlighted by pearl work. Each flower has a clawed rhinestone centre. At the back if the gown you really notice the effect of the tulle & its beading detail and how it all comes together with the row of tiny hand covered buttons.
(Another Blue Bride's dress that was on display I will write about in another post on my blog at a later date when I get some photos)
I got married in Northern Ireland no better place when the sun shines however if I ever go missing you will find me in my other favourite place where I recharge my batteries and that is Mallorca. One of my favourite places on the island for a wedding is a place I visited 2 years ago.
This week Bob Geldof's daughter Pixie choose the island for her Big Day and this spot for her venue.
They arrived in a bus in temperatures of 30 degrees particularly hot for this time of year on the island, it's usually July & August that have thus heat.
Their vows will have taken place outside with breathtaking views out over the Mediterranean Sea, stunning. Should you ever want to know more about this island I have now had three brides get married here so just message me. Jo
One of my best read blogs was the subject of the dress code at Ascot.
This year jumpsuits are being allowed in the royal enclosure!!
I love watching the fashion at Ascot but was surprised today with Kate's outfit. Maybe she should have had the jumpsuit idea.
A bespoke McQueen but really another layer of lining was needed even thought it is to be one of the hottest days of the year as well as the longest day of the year.
The men have been allowed to take their morning coats off at Ascot, Wow!!
