New Forest wedding

Mia & Alex tie the knot at Burley Manor in the New Forest

27 June 2019

Some of you may recognize Mia as Bridal Stylist extraordinaire as she works alongside me in the boutique, helping our beautiful brides find their dream dress. However, this time it was Mia’s turn and we were all incredibly excited to help her find ‘the one’. Mia fell in love with a Lyn Ashworth gown and she used her incredible eye for detail and style to customize the dress beautifully.

Mia on finding the one:

“I ended up falling in love with a Lyn Ashworth dress that had a fitted corset and a flowing silk chiffon skirt that was fuller than my original idea. Being in the industry it couldn’t just stop there, working closely with Sam and the designer I customized my dress to create a bespoke gown that was perfect for me! We also made the petticoat removable which I was so pleased about on the day, as it was a boiling hot summer’s day, and taking out the petticoat made my dress lovely and cool.”

Mia on their wedding theme:

“Alex & I both love gin and decided to use this as the theme for our day. We even had help from the local pubs that collected empty gin bottles and prosecco corks for the table decorations. Our theme was brought to life by Fiori by Lynne who created beautiful floral arrangements and helped incorporate the gin bottles. The flowers were mainly white with accents of lavender and green foliage. The bridesmaid’s wore Dessy Celadon green dresses which they loved and were incredibly comfortable and elegant.”

Congratulations Mia and Alex!

Congratulations Mr & Mrs White! It was such a pleasure to be a part of your special day and I wish you lots of happiness in the years ahead xxx
