A little bit of what’s been happening at Edith & Winston this Summer.

I love working in the boutique and meeting so many wonderful brides. I love working on my photoshoots with the most talented wedding specialists. And I really love, love, love social media! I love bringing you Plus Size bridal inspiration and writing my blog posts on my website and for other wedding websites.

So naturally my love for all things bridal… turned into Something New – A Blog For The Plus Size Bride. In July we featured our first real brides, including Amy, who wore one of our beautiful Callista gowns. Something New is just starting. I hope to feature so many more real brides, photoshoots and inspiration from bridal boutiques across the country.

We got off to a great start. I was asked to visit Callista and help with their new 2018 photoshoot! This was the very first one to take place here in their UK offices. We had a great day, and I can’t wait for the images to be shared with you next week.

We have also received our new dresses from our brand new Plus Size designer – Sonsie! We looked at many different specialist Plus Size designers who we thought would fit within our boutique and suit the needs of our brides. In the end, Sonsie really stood out to us for not only the structure that comes with one of their gowns, but also their amazing customer service. The dresses arrived about a month ago and we have had a good response from our brides, as they are a little bit different to what we already have in store. And so we hope that by having a bigger range we can help more brides than ever fall in love with their dream dress.

Recently, we went on a photoshoot with some of our favourite Ronald Joyce dresses as well as our new Sonsie gowns. It was a great day and Debbie McGregor did an incredible job with the photographs. We also love the amazing wedding suppliers on the shoot. For more information and pictures please click on this link.

But going back to my love of social media! Well, we went a little bit quiet in July. I just couldn’t face writing on the laptop and I even went a little bit quiet in the shop. But we have a good reason! We had the biggest surprise in June when we found out that I am having a baby. I made it to the end of week 6 and then came the morning sickness which has really knocked me around. Because of everything, I’ve decided to make the boutique by appointment going forward until I am feeling better.

We hope to see many new brides over the next few months, as well as those collecting their wedding dresses! Please follow Something New on Facebook and Instagram.
