They say time flies when you are having fun and for me 2018 has passed in a heartbeat. Ten months ago my beautiful baby daughter was born and our lives would never be the same again.
I want to start my yearly round up by thanking all the wonderful brides who visited and found their wedding dress with us at Edith & Winston Bridalwear. We appreciate your support and also that you didn’t mind me bringing along my newborn daughter. I didn’t want to put her straight into childcare when she could come and be part of my world here at the boutique. So thank you. Now she is getting bigger, and we will be looking at fresh options in the new year. Especially after we found her hanging out her chair, throwing around some paper and an old veil that she had found in a box, behind the mirror. It may mean that we are not available on certains day in the new year but available child-free on others! I will keep you updated.
I am going to share with you some of the incredible real weddings that we had featured over on Something New. I love seeing and sharing all your real weddings so please do keep sending them in to me!
We also had a very special wedding of our own here at Edith & Winston Bridalwear! My little sister Cat got married in October and she looked incredible in her two (Yes Two!) Edith & Winston wedding dresses. The first by Ivory and Co and the second a Ronald Joyce turned into a tea-length by Boutique Alterations. When we first opened our boutique my sister came with me to Ivory & Co and helped me choose the collection. On meeting Sarah the designer, Cat knew she wanted to wear one of her designs when she got married. She was married at The Wellbeing Farm and had her photographs done by the incredibly talented Teresa C Photography.
We had our beautiful photoshoot shared over at Something New and you can use this link to see the images. But here are some of the ones that I took on the day. It was my first time taking photographs on the shoot and I am hoping to take more myself next year on our photoshoots! Which is totally scary but exciting all at the same time. I have been on two amazing photography courses this year at Click Love Grow, which I highly recommend to anyone starting out with their camera. I have been so inspired over the past few years with our shoots and I wanted to get involved myself. I hope you like them!
So with 2018 coming to a close what can you expect from Edith & Winston Bridalwear?
More photoshoots!! We are currently in the process of organising our first shoot of the year! I haven’t been able to do any other shoots this year with juggling Lenox, baby groups, brides and my photography course, but thats all going to change in 2019 and I will be back with an epic collaboration. So watch this space!
Our first ever sample sale will be happening in the new year as well as an accessories sale which will happen online! Did I hear you say ”Ooooh?” Big reductions and bargains to be had! So that will be exciting.
We will also no longer be opening on Sundays – unless it is in replacement of a Saturday. Advanced warning of these appointments will be posted on Facebook. But we will not be generally opening Sundays going into 2019. This year we have had a lot of no-shows which has been really upsetting. So please if you can’t make your appointment, I don’t bite! Send me an email or please let me know by calling. It helps me so much and I do understand.
There will also probably be more baby photographs because, well I just love showing off my beautiful little girl to you all. This year she has been photographed by Velvet D’Amour which was so exciting and very special. Here is one of my favourites by Vanessa Louise.
I would like to wish you all a wonderful last few days of 2018 and here is to a brilliant 2019!
All my love,
