High neck 60s vintage wedding dress worn by real bride Suzanne.

High neck 60s vintage wedding dress, real bride ……….

Dear Reader, our gorgeous vintage bride this week is Suzanne – in an original vintage 1960s wedding dress by Priscilla of Boston.


Suzanne and Danish husband Jakob married in the impossibly chic surroundings of Lake Como. So the gown had a lot to live up to! But this super-stylish 1960s wedding dress was perfect: Suzanne looked fabulous the moment she first slipped it on – bringing a swoosh of 1960s Italian Riviera glamour to my West London dress studio…

In Suzanne’s own words…

“I was never a child who knew the wedding dress of their dreams. And so it was through a little web research of possible stores that started the trail. I visited one other store and even discussed the possibility of modifying my mother’s wedding dress with a designer before stumbling upon Heavenly Vintage Brides.”


“Helena invited my Maid of Honour and I into her house and up to her beautifully styled Dressing Room. Categorised by era, each vintage dress was meticulously kept. The dress I chose was designed by Priscilla of Boston who designed the bridesmaid dresses for Grace Kelly!”


“It really fit me like a glove and felt incredible on. Both classic but stylish, I was happy with the decision and couldn’t believe I had chosen a dress with long sleeves, a high neck and a long train for an Italian wedding!”

And the pictures speak for themselves, don’t they – their wonderful event is straight out of a classic 1960s Hollywood movie!
