Morning everyone! Wedding dresses and some behind-the-scenes pictures today… I wanted to tell you a little more about couture dress designer Erica Stacey. Erica has made a real splash in the Manchester and Cheshire wedding scene (if that’s the right word: is there a ‘scene’? Answers on a postcard please…) with the launch of her couture bridal wear brand at the luxurious Tatton Wedding Show in January. I’ve come across her name on Brides Up North wedding blog and seen her dresses featured in fabulous creative shoots by some of my favourite wedding photographers. This lady is making waves – with gorgeous designs and a fantastic commercial launch, allow me to introduce Erica Stacey Bridal Wear.

Erica Stacey is a new bridal wear label which launched at the Tatton Wedding Show in January. All our dresses are unique and individual for the bride who wants something different for her big day. Our dresses are handmade in Manchester, England.
Behind the scenes at Erica Stacey bridal wear
We met with Charlene and worked together on the brief for a storyboard. Charlene was full of brilliant ideas and she immediately understood the look we wanted to achieve. Our idea was to create something which showed the uniqueness of our dresses, our design process and our attention to detail. Finally we wanted to showcase how our brides feel in one of our dresses on their special day.
We contacted the team at The Alexandra Court Hotel in Congleton and they kindly agreed to let us use their hotel as our location. The Alexandra Court is a beautiful boutique hotel full of character and charm. The management and staff were fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us. They ensured we had everything we needed and were on hand with much needed tea and biscuits throughout the day!
Finally, Laura Simpson from Laurel Weddings created some beautifully, elegant arrangements and bouquets to dress the ‘set’ and the whole day was captured by Hannah Dornford-May.
Initially Erica and our model Cath were a little nervous but Charlene made them feel at ease and the day went really smoothly. Everyone involved really enjoyed the day and towards the end the sun even shone which enabled us to make use of the beautiful gardens at The Alexandra Court.
