I began the search for my wedding dress back in February, shortly before life went into lockdown.
Since then wedding dress try on’s came to a quick halt.
Myself and my maid of honour dipped our toes back into the world of weddings, starting with one of the UK’s leading bridal boutique, Isabella Grace Bridal.
Spread over four floors of a Georgian town house in Tunbridge Wells.
We entered into a world of tule, sparkles, embroidery, beading and silk.
Delicate, floating creations along every wall.
I entered still with no idea of what I really wanted, Gabrielle was my fairy godmother.
After asking me what I imagine myself to be in on the big day, she went to work, bringing us gown after gown of beautiful dresses.
Starting with something a little more classic.
Beatrice by Justin Alexander
The most beautiful silk A-line gown.
Perfect in its simplicity.
Next something a little more sparkly.
Stella York’s, Serenity.
Just look at the straps on the back.
Covered in delicate embroidery and beading, that floats from the body down onto the skirt.
I slipped into dress after dress.
Letting my fairy godmother know which was a hit and which was a miss based on my own personal taste and keeping in mind the wedding day.
Another Stella York, Sharon.
What it lacks in the romantic name it makes up for everywhere else.
Silk tule and appliqué.
I left Isabella Grace feeling much more confident in the hunt for my dream dress.
Being honest with you, one really stole the show for me.
I’ve not shared it of course, just incase it does end up being the one.
I have a few more appointments in London this month, which I am going to share with you all too. But let’s just sat this may not have been my last visit to Isabella Grace.
