Hello my lovelies, I hope you are enjoying the Easter break and taking a few moments to love yourself as you sit back and enjoy a few days of dry warm weather. Well, lets face it, there will be NO downing of tools here for sure as we rise to the challenge of being listed as the Best British Wedding Dress Designer by our friends across the pond.
First up is the lovely feature that dropped today in the USA. Signature Bride Magazine is a go to lifestyle hub of style and bridal fashion for couples abroad. The magazine has a global audience and so provides the perfect platform to find the best Black Owned Wedding Dress Designers UK and Globally. With a significant rise in multi-cultural weddings across the globe, the challenge of identifying professionals able to fulfil their wedding day dreams with empathy and understanding towards the cultural aspects of getting married.
This a great opportunity for us to be featured globally as it provides ever more opportunity to for brides abroad to identify and work with British wedding dress designers with a bespoke background to deliver the services they need. Who would have thought that my background and experience creating Red Carpet gowns for A-listers in Hollywood would become a whole new specialist area of my business development.
Inside the studio with best british wedding dress designers
For the CGH brides privileged to sneak behind the scenes of the bridal studio, its a hive of activity that we take for granted, but which we have learned, is inspiring and magical to all who visit. Lovingly named the 'Girl Cave' for all the pretty swatches, mood-boards, sparkly trims and experimental textiles that adorn the walls. In honesty, its not quite the pristine Instagrammable feed you may have stumbled across but, ours is a real den of creativity in the making, passion for the arts and love for the happy work that we do and the delightful smiles of our brides .
The Undiscovered Collection
For the creative free spirited bride open to new ideas, you simply must visit the studio to discover the undiscovered. The Undiscovered Collection are sample gowns that are gems in the right hands and perfect for the bride who adopts a purposeful approach to wedding dress shopping.
To be totally honest, we are bursting at the seams in the workroom with a wonderful selection of undiscovered gowns, sample gowns, part designed gowns used exclusively for shoots and even toiles that just have no business ending up in the bin. If this appeals to you and you truly want to help save the planet as well as your purse strings, then please drop us an email titled The Undiscovered. We would just love to help you ! It is after-all what we do.
