Clients often remark to me that I have a lovely job… absolutely right! I do take great pleasure in helping all my clients find that special wedding dress. Today on my vintage wedding blog, I’d like to showcase a few of the beautiful girls I’ve helped to find their dream dress in 2013.
Kathryn wore 1950s tea-length ‘Blanche’ from my Heavenly Collection of vintage inspired dresses, for her Liverpool wedding.
Kathryn looked wonderful in the dress. In her own words,
“The dress was stunning – I felt amazing in it! A massive thank you, Helena, for everything you did. “
If you’d like to see more of Kathryn’s wedding, there’s a great post on Rock My Wedding.
One of the best things about choosing a vintage wedding dress is the range of styles. I never get bored with my job, since each era is so unique. Today I’d like to show you three more lovely brides in three very different styles – the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
For her Summer wedding, Clare chose a 1950s strapless tulle dress with a matching lace coat.
Clare has a wonderfully dainty, ladylike air about her – and the dress suited her so well! In Clare’s own words…
“Everyone commented on how beautiful my dress was and I absolutely loved wearing it! It worked so well with the venue that we decided on, Luton Hoo. Many of our friends said they felt they had stepped into Downton Abbey for the day!
Thanks again for looking after me during my appointments with you. I would not hesitate to recommend you to other brides looking for that special dress.”
Susie was an absolute delight to work with. She chose a gorgeous full-length original 1960s lace wedding dress for her very stylish wedding.
In Susie’s own words,
“On the day I felt like a princess – I felt lovely and extremely comfortable all day. The dress was perfect, it fit just like a glove! Everyone loved my dress and I am so happy with the silhouette it gave me, it was just a dream to wear!”
I was thrilled when Susie wrote a lovely note explaining why she enjoyed choosing her dress with Heavenly…
“I had discovered Heavenly Vintage Brides whilst doing some research for a friends wedding and I would regularly go on line to have a peek at the lovely dresses! I was thrilled when I got engaged and contacted HVB immediately! Helena was very helpful from day one, emailing me about dresses that maybe suitable. I was blown away when I went to visit for the first time, it is such a treasure trove of wonderful gowns and Helena made the experience thoroughly relaxing and delightful.
I was absolutely spoilt for choice, there were so many beautiful dresses and Helena was fantastic, allowing me plenty of space and time to go through and select the ones I liked the best. My mum and I had a lovely time chatting with Helena whilst enjoying the best cup of tea I have ever had!
It was wonderful to see so many dresses and talk about their history as Helena’s collection stretches across the whole of the last century, so there is something for everyone. I cannot recommend HVB highly enough, I had such a fun time choosing my dress and I was so happy with my choice, I thoroughly enjoyed wearing it and felt very special, I just wish I could wear it more! I had so many lovely compliments on the day and I was just so pleased that Helena is part of my happy wedding memories!”
Lauren chose a floaty lace 70s dress. She looked gorgeous in this bohemian and relaxed style. And in her own words,
“The dress was so comfortable. I really did feel as if I floated around all day.”
And here is the same dress in pictures from my studio… though of course it looks more beautiful on Lauren herself!
…Just a few of the lovely girls I’ve been lucky enough to work with this year.
Thanks to all of you who have visited Heavenly – I’m looking forward to meeting many more of you next year! And thanks for dropping by my vintage wedding blog today.
