Seduction And Sophistication – Victorian Inspired Bridal Gowns by Angels Carrying Savage Weapons…

Good morning lovelies. I hope that you have enjoyed your weekends and had lots of fun in the snow. Unfortunately it scuppered our plans of exhibiting at the Designer Vintage Bridal Boutique in Birmingham for which we are very sorry and as equally disappointed. Despite the Arctic conditions there was a good turn out to the show so well done to all those that braved the weather to attend, you did us proud.

This morning I would like to introduce you to a designer that I have been keeping an eye on ever since I met her at the National Wedding Show last year. Lindsay Fidler specialises in creating eclectic and handmade couture wedding gowns that are heavily inspired by the sophistication of the Victorians and the glamour of the 40’s and 50’s.

“Our bridal ranges are as eclectic as our brides, we have tried designing ranges, but have found that the brides that come to us already have a good idea of what they want and just need to find the right person to design and make it for them. We constantly design and make new samples of dresses to give brides an idea of possibilities but that’s all they are, they can change elements of a design, choose a different colour or fabric, add detailing its completely their choice.”

“All of our gowns are handmade bespoke pieces, we really care about the client and her wishes so we do ourĀ utmostĀ to ensure she can have exactly what she wants, its one of the single biggest purchases a bride will make so its important that, she is happy, its also about the rapport we have with our clients, many of them we can happily call friends and return year on year for clothing from our sister website which is home to our burlesque and alternative fashion range, some of them even just drop in for a cup of tea and a catch up and one brings me home made cakes.”


Bespoke Bride at The Alternative Wedding Fair

If anyone ever needed proof of how passionate about Bespoke Bride we are, getting up at 8am on a Sunday morning to travel 3 hours to the Corn Exchange, Cambridgeshire for the Alternative Wedding show would have been it. We were prepared with a good healthy breakfast of Haribo, Doritos, pain au chocolates, Ribena and of course Coffee.
