A brand new bridal experience and the Best of the North West!

It’s an exciting day for English Wedding Blog today – I’m stepping things up a gear with two important blog posts full of gorgeous ideas, bridal looks and wedding industry news…

Love Bridal boutique CheshireSpecifically, I’m going to tell you about the launch of a much-anticipated bridal boutique in the North West. Until today a closely guarded secret known to a very few wedding industry insiders, it’s now official: two of the most popular wedding suppliers in the North West are opening their own luxury bridal boutique!

Love Bridal boutique opens in Cheshire!

Love Bridal is being opened by Emma and Jonny Draper – who’ve both had their work featured on English Wedding Blog before in their roles as bridal boutique manager, make up artist and wedding photographer.

I was so keen to be a part of the launch of Love Bridal because I really admire the way Jonny and Emma work. Their ethos is to share and collaborate with other wedding suppliers: no secrets, no rivalries and a genuine focus on friendship within the industry.

Over the next two days I will be helping to reveal all about Love Bridal in words and pictures. This is what’s coming up:

1. Love Bridal launches with The Best of the North West – see wedding dresses from Terry Fox, Mia Mia by Alan Hannah, Intuzuri and the Heritage Collection by Balbier Wyatt, all photographed by top North West wedding photographers.

2. Love Bridal – the story of the North West’s brand new luxury wedding boutique, the designers, the collections and accessories Love Bridal has to offer.

3. Behind the scenes with The Best of the North West – all about the collaboration between wedding photographers and suppliers launching Love Bridal. Who are these crazy wedding photographers who work together and share ideas?!

The official Love Bridal website has also launched today (at 12 noon… until then there’s a countdown!). You can find out more details about Emma and Jonny Draper and their designers at To be kept up to date with their latest news follow Love Bridal on facebook or on twitter @love_bridal

    Massive congratulation to the Drapers. They put together a brilliant day that was so well planned from beginning to end. The dresses were stunning and I’m sure the brides to be will be flooding through the doors of the Boutique for a chance to try them on.
