Wow, where did 2017 go? I feel terrible that I haven’t updated my blog for quite some time. My laptop broke and I couldn’t remember how to get access to the website! But I am back and I thought I would give you a little round up of the end of Edith & Winston’s year and to new beginnings!
I really should start with the biggest news here at Edith & Winston Bridalwear… We have gone by appointment only! Ok, that isn’t really the biggest news, but it’s a result of what many of you will already know — we will be welcoming the newest member of the E&W team in around 6 weeks time! I am having my first baby at the start of March and so after 8 weeks of morning sickness, I decided it was easier to go by appointment. And you know what? I really like it, as I feel like we can give even more of our time to you all. The next few months are a little bit more unusual, I am still here for now! But Janet will be taking over soon and so we have slightly fewer appointments than we used to. But I will be back and bringing Baby Lord-Lyon with me!
Just last weekend we had a family/maternity photoshoot! It was so much fun. I don’t really like having my photograph taken but Hazel and Ailsa are the most amazing and professional photographers. We have worked with Firinn Photography a few times — when we went to Blackpool in 2016 and last year with the flower wall at the Isla Gladstone. I am so glad that I asked them to take our photographs as it felt so natural and it wasn’t half as scary as I had imagined. I can’t recommend them enough for your wedding day, or any important moment you wish to capture!
We ended 2017 with our first wedding award! I didn’t even go to the ceremony as I was full of a cold, and I really didn’t expect to win! Janet went and had a really lovely evening at the English Wedding Awards.
We worked on some of my favourite photoshoots last year and the final one could possibly be my favourite yet! Possibly because Georgina had green hair and I just loved it! But we had a beautiful setting, beautiful dresses and wonderful suppliers. The images were blogged by And So To Wed and keep an eye out for our feature in a wedding magazine in 2018!

We absolutely love working with Georgina and Tina! So we can’t wait to get back to shooting once Baby LL has arrived!
Somwthing New started with a bang! We featured brides from all over the world as well as three of our own! Click on the picture to read all about their real weddings and real engagement stories! We would love to have you all submit to Something New this year!!
We also took on two new designers, Sonsie and a new Plus Size specialist arriving in 2018! Here is a few pictures of gowns arriving this year from our amazing designers.
So that’s our round up of 2017. Another fabulous year of brides, Plus Size inspiration and shoots! We really can’t wait to see what 2018 brings as we go into our fourth year! Obviously there will be lots of baby spam when she finally arrives, as well as photoshoots and collaborations! I have plans to work with a Plus Size specialist of bridesmaid dresses on a shoot. It’s so important to me that I can give you, my brides all the information that I can. ‘Where can I find Plus Size bridesmaid gowns?’ is something that I get asked all the time! As well as specialist underwear (something else we plan to blog for you this year). Our new designer will be arriving soon and I can’t wait! I have wanted this Plus Size specialist since the beginning and finally we will be a stockist in 2018.
Thank you for reading through my blog, I know it was a lengthy one!
All my love
