Earlier this month, as many of you would have been preparing for a
weekend of bonfire parties and fireworks, I headed to Ripley in Surrey
to pay another visit to Love My Dress sponsor, Miss Bush Bridal Wear.

I'm no stranger to the glamorous events organised by Emma Meek and her team. In fact, I've previously shared my cocktail fuelled adventures
with you all on these very pages. This visit was a little different
though. Arriving the night before the scheduled wedding showcase meant I was able to watch the event
materialise before my very eyes, as a rather unassuming room at The
Talbot Inn
{recently taken over by Marco Pierre White, no less} was
transformed into a glamorous backdrop for the very latest Jenny Packham gowns and a whole host of other stylish details.

When Emma
Woodhouse {a.k.a The Wedding Reporter} and I strolled into the space
reserved for the Miss Bush team, we were greeted by a blank
canvas and two cheery florists hard at work. 

We watched in awe as
Bloomin' Gayles and Fairynuff Flowers created an array of autumnal
displays throughout the room. It's been a while since floristry has
truly blown me away, but the manner in which these ladies reimagine the
world of wedding flowers is inspiring, to say the least. Their work was
perfectly complimented by the clever lighting provided by Stressfree
Hire
. The gentle twinkling of fairy lights bathed the otherwise drab
room in magic, and the addition of a chaise lounge and antique vanity
table only added to the glamour.

By the time we returned the
following morning, a whole host of wedding suppliers had helped put the
finishing touches to the room and the models that would soon grace its
makeshift catwalk. Emma and I drooled over the huge naked cake, crafted
by Cakes by Sugar, and marvelled at the delicious looking sweetie buffet
provided by Creative Candi.

The models lucky enough to be slipping into exquisite gowns from Jenny Packham's 2013 collection had been made over by the talented Makeup Artist Carolanne Armstrong. Exaggerated lashes and perfectly winged eye-liner was paired with fabulous hairstyles courtesy of Elbie Van Eeden. It was hard not to feel decidedly plain next to their messy beehives and softly cascading curls. Soon, photographer Juliet McKee was in attendance and fiercely capturing every beautiful detail.

As prospective customers filed in, I was reminded once again of Miss Bush Bridal Wear's
status as one of the most stylish and forward thinking wedding
boutiques in the UK. The glamorous world of autumn decay curated by Emma
Meek and her team clearly left the visiting couples inspired and
excited.

And the dresses? Oh the dresses! We watched in stunned silence as the
models took to the catwalk. Each gown seemed more perfect than the last,
our rapturous gaze met with visions of silk and tulle, shimmer and
sparkle.

  1. Franky – thanks for trekking once again to Ripley to see the Miss Bush team in action. Jenny Packham collections are always a good excuse for photoshoots & the collective creativity of my team is always beyond my wildest expectations. Possibly a bit OTT for a wedding ‘fayre’? Totally…

  2. I’m so excited to see these images grace your blog Annabelle, I’ve never been so in love with a collection of frocks as I am these. They really are truly stunning and I think every bride should try at least 1 on! Thanks to Emma Meek for inviting me along and to Franky for her lovely words. Thanks also to the entire team who make my work a doddle.

  3. Oh, oh, OH such beautiful photos.
    I’d also like to add that I bought my dress from Miss Bush. Not only did Emma get me in a dress that I would never have picked in a thousand years but was absolutely the right dress for me, the whole team worked really hard there to customise it so that it was unique to me and my quirks. And they were so kind and encouraging to a very nervous and self-consious bride-to-be. In terms of know-how, expertise and sheer customer service I can’t rate them highly enough.

  4. Watching such types of dress will bring a big smile on every ones face. The dress is looking so pretty that on wearing it the beauty of the bride will increase twice.
