Unveil UK Campaign

Some of our dresses feature in the new Unveil UK campaign!  Unveil is a fashion forward bridal hair & makeup agency who specialise in radiant, happy brides!  All of their artists are professional makeup artists & hairstylists who work in fashion editorial, film and advertising.  Their vision is to create a look where the bride is the bestest most shining version of herself, and doesn't feel caked in makeup.  Cat from Unveil did the hair & makeup for our look book & studio shoots so I knew it would be amazing, and was so happy that they wanted to use some of the dresses for their new campaign shoot.

Vintage Wedding Fair at Chiswick Town Hall

Had a lovely day at the Vintage Wedding Fair at the Chiswick Town Hall on Sunday.   The town hall is a grade 2 listed building located opposite Turnham Green.  There are two halls, an Old Council Chamber, Committee Room and a meeting room, all available for hire.

Initially I ordered a beautiful loose, boho wedding dress with a fitted bodice, low back, shoe string straps and lace sleeves for my wedding dress. But when it arrived 6 months later and I tried it on…. I felt like a pregnant sack of potatoes. The wedding dress itself was beautiful, and comfortable, but it didn’t suit me. I decided to take the elements of the original wedding dress and make something that suited my body shape. The Beaumont dress is nothing like my original wedding dress, but has all the elements I loved! I really wanted to...

Wedding dress customisation and alterations explained

Customisation and AlterationsDuring fittings recently there have been a few questions about Customisation and Alterations. Here is my definitive guide!   I refer to customisation as changes we make to the dress before its made, and alterations as changes made to the dress after its made. Generally its cheaper to customise your wedding dress before it is made than to pay for alterations after it is made. If you like the Francis Bridal style (yay!) we can offer: the collection gowns, a customised collection gown, or a fully bespoke gown.Our collection wedding dresses are all made to order in London. This means we don't hold stock of the dresses and make them individually as they are ordered. They come in...
