Friday night was the first of our annual plus size bridal catwalk shows in Bath. The catwalk was all set up with a glamorous garden theme. We were so pleased with the final results after considering so many different options. Here are some pictures.
We want to thank Sounds Commercial for their work on the sound and lighting and Original Occasions for their work transforming the chairs into a beautiful part of the event. Alexandra Sylvester helped us with the styling and is an absolutely fantastic, creative and lovely florist who we cannot wait to work with again. She has even created some fantastic bouquets for us to have at the boutique that we think our brides will love.
Lana and Josie from Flowers and Fringes were fantastic in creating beautiful looks for our gorgeous models for both the photo shoot and catwalk. We highly recommend Flowers and Fringes to all of our brides looking to have their hair and or makeup done for their wedding day. Lana also runs a hair salon at her home where I plan to return very soon.
The look for the hair was soft romantic with a nod to the late 1800s for a vintage feel but keeping it modern with the use of beautiful crystal hair accessories by Polly Edwards and fresh flowers. We think this worked fabulously on all of our stunning models. The make up had soft gold tones for the photography in the day, with the addition of a strong red lipstick for the catwalk. We loved it all!
The models on the day were absolutely fantastic and worked so amazingly together! We loved every second working with these beautiful ladies, and are so proud that they were able to wear and showcase the wedding dresses we have here at the boutique. We have to say they excelled our expectations and did an absolutely amazing job!
Colleen was fabulous and absolutely gorgeous. She was so enthusiastic and excited to try on all the dresses, we absolutely loved her! Doesn’t she look amazing in one our brand new Sacha James Curvy collection dresses.
Vicky is the most lovely person, we thought she looked amazing. Her favourite dress was this one, but we think she looked amazing in everything! Her husband came along for the day and we have to thank him massively for all the help he gave! Such a great guy and so easy to get on with, as well as hardworking! Vicky you have done well there!
Deeds, where do I start! Those catwalk moves really got the crowd going! We absolutely loved her. She thanked me at the end for letting her take part in the day, but really we need to thank her! She was absolutely fantastic. Her favourite dress was this beautiful gown by Allure Women, but we have to say we also loved her in this too!
Charli was amazing on Friday. She looked great in all of the dresses we had for her, and even did a strut down the catwalk in one of our basques and petticoats! She looked wonderful, we particularly liked her hair and makeup! Everyone mentioned how confident Charli was on the catwalk, and we absolutely love her in the photos!
Emily and Rachel, our other models, were fantastic!! Emily was the first bride to buy a dress from us when we opened last year, and it was so fantastic to have her there. She said she enjoyed it and we are so glad she did! She looked amazing in all the dresses. We put the one she bought on someone else so it is still a surprise for her friends, family, and most importantly her fiancé.
Rachel, one of Emily’s best friends who bought one of Polly Edward’s beautiful headpieces from us was amazing on the catwalk, especially with the addition of one of our heart shaped umbrellas. Twirling could definitely be a career move for her! We have only seen a couple of the professional photos so far, but doesn’t she look so statuesque and regal in this photo! We absolutely love it!
We would love to work with all these fabulous ladies again and cannot thank them enough for all their hard work, patience and general amazingness on Friday! Really, we could not have done it without you! The day was so enjoyable, and we loved working with you all, and we can’t wait to post more photos and the videos too...!
