Real Bride – Leyla wearing Jenny Packham Cynthia AND Jesus Peiro 5020

Jenny Packham Cynthia

My conscience has been troubled for some time that I have failed to write a blog post about Leyla’s wedding. It has been in You & Your Wedding and featured on Love My Dress but I have been spectacularly remiss in my efforts to write any thing at all.

Anyone that doesn’t inhabit planet Bush or is not a Miss Bush bride will not know that Leyla has been, along with Corinne, one of the architects and facilitators of new look, new feel Bush! As a colleague Leyla is the most conscientious, organised and committed team player and as a friend Leyla is unswervingly loyal, endearingly eccentric and completely lovely.

The glorious Jenny Packham/Jesus Peiro combination of dresses Leyla picked embody all the natural style and individuality of all our clients. As an ex City girl and die hard London dweller Leyla has that innate coolness &  picked fashion led original pieces, the Jenny Packham being pretty much decided on a buying trip at Jenny Packham HQ. The silk crepe Cynthia had a real 70s edge, reminiscent of Leyla’s Mum’s favourite designer Ossie Clark. The silver gilt brocade Jesus Peiro was customised at Miss Bush. My hi-low hem obsession rubbed off on Leyla turning the style 5020 into a perfect dress for dancing and showing off the Choos!

Leyla’s choice of Nonsuch Mansion just outside London was the first among several choices that came from both the heart and the head. Having fallen in love with the venue at a friend’s wedding it was picked with minimum fuss and they delivered maximum service allowing Leyla a completely free reign with styling and supplier choice.

The day was captured expertly by Eddie Judd, a Miss Bush recommended photographer, flowers from Bloomingayles, hair by Sharon Roberts, Videography By Ashleigh from John  Harris Wedding Films and DJ Matt Maurice add to the role call of Miss Bush firm favourites & collaborators.

Real Bride – Lucinda wearing Tara Keely

Tara Keely Wedding

It’s sunny, I’ve been shopping and the shops are awash with hits of coral from the softest peach to eyeball assaulting neon orange. Browsing through my blog posts there is only one choice for a bright and shiny day and that choice is Lulu.

I have been avidly watching the social media streams from the New York Bridal market and the US is still gunning for low backs, sheer over skirts, plunging necklines and floral appliques. Style me Pretty has rounded up the trends in this post. It makes me ever so happy that my brides, like Lulu, were already wearing this last year. I’m not saying they are the coolest early adopters and a fashion buyers dream…

Tara Keely Wedding

Shallowness aside Lulu’s wedding at Kew gardens is at once quintessentially British, a stunning iconic location and of course the weather not quite delivering. Stoicism and a fabulous venue will never let rain stop play and the wedding is every bit as wonderful as if the sun was beaming.
