It’s Time

Is your Daughter or Son getting married this year?  Well, it’s time to start looking for your perfect outfit to avoid disappointment.

We have now received all of our beautiful new season collections from Ispirato, Cabotine, Zeila and Dress Code and what can I say, they are simply stunning.  From beautiful bright colours to soft and subtle shades to suit any complexion.

What is on trend this year are lots of blue and white and navy and ivory combinations.  The vintage look is popular also.  So far this season I have noticed alot of couples are opting for barn or marquee weddings.  With this I have found Mum’s want a more relaxed look but still having the Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom distinguished look though.

Big hats are still very popular however there are a few quirky styles that seem to be on trend at the moment.  Lightweight veiling and tulle and feather quills are a must and fascinators that give you height are catching ladies attention.  Especially those who cannot wear heeled shoes.

Just remember that your outfit must be comfortable as you will be wearing it for a long time.  Also that the colour suits you and you like yourself in it.

This can be a very daunting experience but be rest assured we try to make it a joyous and relaxing experience and it’s not everyday you get to try on lots of beautiful outfits.

Our aim is make you feel and look like a million dollars!




Winter Weddings

We all love a festive party and the winter months are perfect.  The Christmas theme and spirit is what really captures the imagination.

I my self had a Christmas wedding and it was a dream of mine for as long as I can remember.  Imagine having all the Christmas trees and decorations for the back drop to your wedding and all the festive food for your wedding guests!

As for the Wedding outfits for the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom little changes.  The colour pallet tends to change however the fabrics still remains the same as spring or summer outfits.  Silver and golds are very popular with pewters and bronzes for richness.  Berry colours are beautiful and very traditional, rich red or burgundy or luxurious greens are fabulous.  Black is not as popular as it used to be, but maybe only as an accent colour or in your accessories for example your shoes and bag.

My Mum chose devore silk velvet in a beautiful colour pallet of gold, copper, burgundy and bronzes for a coat which went over a simple velvet two piece.  Her hat was velvet which complemented the colouring of her outfit.

You obviously do not have to wear velvet.  The outfits are amazing and by just adding a little fur or velvet just takes it up a notch on the chic stakes especially for a Christmas Wedding.  Add sparkle to your outfit for example have extra in the decoration on your hat or in your fasinator.  Do not go too over the top, keep it chic and classy.


If it is a church wedding remember it can be chilly so think carefully about what outer layer will complement your outfit.  How about a fur stole or coat or a pashmina wrap.  A big no no is do not wear your everyday coat.

Some winter Weddings can be an evening affair.  Why not wear a gorgeous evening dress or cocktail dress.

Whatever you choose you will look fabulous.





Bespoke handmade Hats and Fascinators

There’s nothing more special than a bespoke handmade hat, hatinator or fascinator to finish off your look.  Whether you want to stand out from the crowd or be a little subtle there is always the perfect style to suite you.

Hats have been a tradition choice for many years for weddings and special occasions.  However the fascinator has become very popular in recent years and according to statistics have grown in popularity by 300%.  The hatinator has grown in popularity also. Its a compromise between a hat and fascinator.  If you haven’t got the confidence or feel a hat does not suit you then a hatinator is just the style for you.  There are many things you have to consider when thinking about a hat, hatinator or fascintor.



  1. Consider hair style.  If you have long hair you can wear it up.  They are perfect for shorter styles.

2. Fascinators with a headband are more secure with short hair than one on a comb

3. Hatinators are a perfect compromise and are ideal if you are pettit

4. Fasinators and hatinators can be worn all day as they are normally light in weight and you tend to forget you are wearing one

5. When it comes to the colour you choose consider your hair colour.  Do not choose a colour similar to your hair

6. Wear your fascinator or hatinator on the same side as your parting as this will balance your look



  1. Hats will always be the most popular accessorie for weddings and special occasions
  2. Try on many styles to find the right one for you.  If you are tall don’t wear a hat with a deep crown.  A large brim is perfect
  3. Small hats are perfect if you have pettit features. However a large brimmed hat with a short crown is good also
  4. Make a statement with a hat.  If you have the confidence to wear one make sure its a bold colour with lots of feathers and detail
