Our post today features Laura and Chris’s beautiful Gate Street Barn wedding, which took place in May this year, and features our Miss Bush bride wearing the stunning Suzanne Neville Scarlet wedding dress.
Laura’s dress choice was Suzanne Neville Scarlet, a sleek and elegant column wedding dress with a really unusual waterfall front skirt and a delicate lace bodice with intricate illusion lace back.
Laura tells us more about her dress;
“It was the first dress where I felt like I wasn’t playing ‘dress up’ – I was wearing the dress, rather than the dress wearing me. I felt elegant and sexy which I didn’t realise was possible with a wedding dress. I loved the playful slit in the skirt, the elegant lace on the body and the sophisticated buttons down the back. I knew it was the one when I turned around and saw my mum and my sister welling up, that was it! I also thought ‘yes, Chris will love me in this’.”
“My mum and my sister, who was also my Maid of Honour, were at my appointments. Both of them were so surprised at how emotional they were when I found ‘the one’.”
“The whole Miss Bush experience was wonderful in the gorgeous setting of the chapel, and meeting Suzanne Neville for the designer day was even more special! She was so lovely and reassuring. Wearing one of her dresses in front of her was a little nerve-wracking but she made me feel at ease and suggested a few tweaks here and there. I knew I was definitely in good hands with the Miss Bush team & Suzanne.”
Laura accessorised her gown with a subtle pearl and diamanté headband from John Richard at Debenhams and decided against a veil in order to show off the beautiful lace at the back of her dress. Laura then added Rainbow Couture Court shoes in Luisa floral print satin, which added a glimpse of sparkle when she walked.
We have something a little different, and very special to share with you today; Nicola and David’s Silver Wedding Vow Renewal, featuring a stunning bespoke Suzanne Neville dress!
The formal ceremony took place somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean on board the Queen Mary 2, and was performed by the ships Captain. This was followed by a more intimate exchange of vows at the Hotel Cipriani in Venice, Italy.
Nicola’s dress was a bespoke Suzanne Neville creation based on on the Brompton, with some tweaks to fit with the occasion and Nicola’s needs. The skirt was adjusted to feature a much smaller train and the buttons at the back were reduced so that David could button them up on the day and so that Nicola is able to wear the dress again for other occasions.
Nicola tells us more about her shopping experience;
“As it was a silver wedding, I chose (after much deliberation!) a grey silk fabric with the top being the silk crepe and the skirt the silk satin as I thought this would photograph particularly well.”
“Emma was great – I am clearly not a ‘typical’ bride – over 50, not wanting a ‘typical’ wedding dress, but wanting something very special, and after having spoken to her on the phone, when I arrived at the shop, she had already pulled the Brompton (as well as the dress I ‘thought’ I was interested in.) But as soon as I put the Brompton on I knew that the look was exactly what I wanted to achieve even though there were ‘tweaks’ that I wanted to make to the dress.” Continue reading
There’s a bit of a nip in the air this morning reminding us that Autumn will be on its way soon, so to put you in the mood for the season we’ve put together some rustic copper autumn wedding inspiration!
The colour palette for this board consists of warm copper metallic highlights and deep rich greens, with an industrial edge to give the rustic feel more of a contemporary, modern twist.

This is a really unique look and the long sleeves are sure to keep away an autumnal chill!

We’re transporting you to the beautiful Amalfi Coast today for Sam and Hannah’s breathtaking destination wedding, which features our bride Hannah wearing a stunning bespoke Suzanne Neville dress from Miss Bush.
Hannah’s dress was a beautiful bespoke gown created by Suzanne Neville, a figure hugging silhouette with a wide off the shoulder neckline, deep V back and a gently flared skirt, all finished off with a stunning sparkly belt.
“I had was lucky enough to have a bespoke Suzanne Neville Dress. I sent an email with pictures to Emma as to what my vision was and she totally got it. Emma merged 2 dress into one. It was perfect. If I am honest it was not what I had imagine me ever picking, I was wanting so much bling it was untrue but the dress had not one crystal on it. I tried on so many bling dresses but they were just not up to the standard I was looking for.”
“I brought my sister and my mum to the initial brainstorming of the dress with the sketch from Emma. I was so excited as Emma got my vision. I went into the changing room and came out wearing both of the dresses Emma had picked to work together to get the look. My Mum and Sister’s reaction both said ‘O that is it’ and breathed a sigh of relief. I had dragged them to a fair share of wedding shops.”
