I’ve never been to a Christmas wedding but I imagine the excitement of the season, plus the natural excitement of weddings creates a really fabulous atmosphere.

That said, every single time of year has something wonderful going for it and sometimes getting married outside of peak season can work out just beautifully.  I’m a definite fan of a winter wedding.  Today’s bride and groom chose a cool urban February day, and as you’ll see from the film below (by Pixel Pro Media), they had the time of their lives! Meet Katie and Sean, who married on the 17th February 2018 at The Electric Cinema in Birmingham, followed by a reception at The Penthouse.

Becca in Stella York Thu, 20 Sep 2018 20:01:53 +0000  

Tell us about the proposal…

Chris proposed in Cambodia! It was a surprise holiday and he had to wangle some unpaid leave with my boss as I had already used all my annual leave for the year. He had to keep delaying due to various illnesses and even got stopped on the way through the airport by security, with the ring in his bag! I had absolutely no idea it was coming (my friends and I had suspected a while before the holiday when he first told me we were going away, but he did well since then to throw me off the scent – mostly I didn’t believe he was organised enough to plan something so elaborate!). He surprised me with a boat trip to one of the smaller islands (I thought it was a group trip but he surprised me in the morning with the boat to ourselves), snorkeling in the sea and a special bbq on the beach (which I thought they did for all guests but later found out it was just for us!). We watched the sun go down and as it was setting he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! When we got back to the resort he had arranged for a private dinner table right by the sea with bubbly to celebrate. Guests and locals heard there was going to be a wedding and congratulated us all night! The next morning I woke up and genuinely thought it was all a dream, it took a while to sink in!


Where did you get married and how did you pick the venue?

We got married at Henley in Arden Baptist Church, and held the reception at the Guild Hall. Our venue was largely determined by budget, and at the time we lived in Shirley – Henley was a lovely town and close by. We viewed the hall which we knew we could make our own and my Dad, a Baptist Minister, had links to the church so it slotted into place.

How did you find our Boutique?

I found your boutique when I was in Henley showing the venue to my mum – it looked beautiful from the outside and had lovely dresses on display, I then looked on the website and booked a visit. I wasn’t expecting to find my dress but the dresses were all so amazing it was hard to pick just one!

What made you decide your dress was the one & what did you love most about it?

I loved the dress as soon as I put it on, even though it was miles too big for me! I loved the lace and the unique colour. It had a definite vintage feel which reflected my own taste and style, and made me feel like ‘me’ if that makes sense! I also loved the fit, I felt it was really flattering.

Did you have Bridesmaids? If so, what did they wear, how did you pick?

I had two bridesmaids, my best friend from school and my best friend from university. They are both such amazing friends and it was so good (and fun!) to have them planning the wedding with me. They were great on the day and I hope to return the favor one day! They wore silky blue dresses from Boohoo’s bridesmaid range. Again, largely determined by budget we found these dresses in the sale – I wanted a material different to mine which was very Lacey, something contemporary and flattering too. I love the colour and got the glitzy cardigans from Monsoon to add a bit of sparkle! The whole colour scheme worked really well in the end, even though we didn’t really have a ‘scheme’, it was more a ‘do it yourself and see what happens’ kind of vibe!

What did your groom wear?

He looked lovely in a Peter Posh navy tweed suit with a lovely floral tie and nice shoes! The groomsmen’s suits were also hired from Peter Posh.

The day was amazing! It was really personal (my Dad married us) intimate, relaxed, informal, fun and sunny! We had a lovely ceremony followed by a short walk to the reception which looked like something out of a fairytale by the time we were done, I was over the moon with how it turned out (after 8 hours the day before slogging with my bridesmaids, family, groom, friends etc!), followed by garden games, sipping cocktails in the sun, barn dancing and speeches with pudding! We also had a live band who were amazing and really got everyone up and dancing. I couldn’t have hoped for more from our big day and am so grateful to everyone who helped make it happen!

Photographer – Christine McNally (check out her insta, it’s soo good!)
Make up – My maid of honour, Hannah George

Flowers – we did them ourselves! so Mum, Hannah, Amber, me, my brother Chris & my aunty Jacqui!
Cake – made by my amazing mum, Sue 🙂

Sophie wears Jesus Peiro in Tuscany Tue, 11 Sep 2018 08:31:54 +0000

Sophie and Phil 

“Sophie came to us at the start of her dress shopping experience and actually was a dream bride, she tried this amazing Jesus Peiro lace dress on and we all just swooned. We ordered the dress with a custom extrs length train which added that extra bit of wow that she wanted for her Tuscan wedding. Sophie really made our job easy, she was a delight from start to finish and very relaxed the entire time. “

Where did you get married and how did you pick the venue?

We got married at Villa Grabua in Lucca, Tuscany and to sound cliché, it was the best day ever. We knew we wanted to get married abroad, I wanted, as much as possible, for it to be sunny on our wedding day

We have big families and a wide group of friends so we wanted to make sure it was accessible for people, so we chose Europe. One of our main criteria was that we wanted our wedding to be legally binding, which cancelled out quite a few countries because we are not Catholic, applicable to Spain and all the Spanish Islands, and France it was not possible as you have to be a resident to have a legally binding wedding there. But, to our surprise, we could have either a civil or protestant ceremony in Italy and it be legally binding. We then started looking at regions in Italy to get married in, we just fell in love with some of the venues we had seen (via the internet) in Tuscany. Phil, through his business, knew a wedding planner in Tuscany, so we started speaking to her and then booked a trip out to visit some venues with her. We spent 3 days visiting about 10 different venues, of which we had selected from about 30 we had been sent by our wedding planner. I had fallen in love with Villa Grabau before we had even touched down in Italy, the pictures of it were just magical to me. But Phil, my now husband didn’t want me to have my heart set on a venue before we had seen any of the others, he wanted to go to each one with an open mind. But when we visited Villa Grabau, we both fell in love with it. It had three distinct areas for the ceremony, Aperitif’s and the meal/disco, which was what we loved. It has beautiful gardens and walking from the Aperitif area through to the Limonia, which is a working Limonia, was like being in the film ‘A Secret Garden’, you literally walk through a concealed door in a hedge. The venue was just perfect for what we wanted location wise as well. It is only 10 minutes from Lucca, which meant out guests had a great city to base themselves from. Many of the wedding venues in Tuscany are hours’ drive from any big towns/cities. I’m smiling to myself just thinking about it.

How did you hear about our Boutique?

Prior to our engagement and after it, I hadn’t done any research into dresses. The thought of it slightly overwhelmed me, if I’m honest. I work local to Henley-in-Arden and my colleagues wife actually got her dress from the shop about 15 years ago. I was aware that wedding dresses have to be ordered quite far in advance, and it got to about 1 year before our wedding, and because I like to know all my choices, I am not an impulsive person, I thought I best start looking as I didn’t want to be rushed, which good job I did, as I am glad I had time to consider my choices. Because I had walked past the bridal shop plenty of times before I was engaged and I always thought it looked really cute, I thought what better shop to start in than a local one. And that was one of the best decisions I made in the wedding planning process . It wasn’t until after I had first visited the shop and was doing some research into other shops in the Birmingham/Warwickshire area, that I had realised how we regarded the Bridal Boutique is and the quality of designers that it stocks. From the 7 shops I visited in the area, it really is the best and my favourite. Madi makes you feel so at ease and welcome and I really loved the feel of the shop.

What made you decide your dress was the one & what did you love most about it?

The reaction of my Mum, bridesmaid and Madi for one. The dress I chose in the end was actually the second one I tried on, so technically I could have saved a lot of trudging around bridal shops. But, because wedding dresses aren’t something you try on every day, I wanted to try on different style dresses and also try different designers, but by doing so, it helped me decide on the style of dress that suited me and that I also felt comfortable in. I think it also helped that the dress Madi had in stock was my size, so I could really see what it looked like on. Whereas with other dresses, when they have to be pinned, it is sometimes hard to tell what they will really look like.

I don’t think I can decide on one thing I love most about my dress. I love the lace, It is so soft and an unusual pattern. But then I also love the shape of it and the train, I had extra added to the train, at the request of my Mum . I also love the high neck and the back of it. It is just so hard to pick one thing.

How did you accessorise, ie, which shoes did you pick? Did you choose a Headpiece or a Veil, or both?

I had a pair of blush pink Valentino heels. My Husband isn’t much taller than me and the venue had a fair bit of grass and gravel, so I chose a thick heel which wasn’t too high. I also had a veil, which I loved, it didn’t have any lace but was really quite long and it just felt amazing to wear.

Did you have Bridesmaids? If so, what did they wear, how did you pick?

Yes, I had 5 bridesmaids. They wore blush pink dresses from a company called TH & TH. I was quite jealous of their dresses, as I loved them and would have quite liked to have worn them myself. They were fitted and had a small train.

What did your groom wear?

Phil wore a Navy tux from Gieves & Hawkes. We got it from the store in the Mailbox, Birmingham and they were just fabulous and extremely accommodating. He looked so handsome 

Finally, tell us about your big day .. 

Our wedding venue is 10 minute drive from the beautiful city of Lucca and is at the base of the Pizzorne Mountains. It still has the original Renaissance look and has fabulous gardens but then also is a Lemon farm and has a working Limonia where they store the Lemons in the winter. The ceremony area is a walled garden which has several big tress in it, so at 3pm, the time of our ceremony, it has beams of light filtering through the leaves and branches, which is just really enchanting. I walked down the aisle to ‘ A million years’ sung by a fabulous Jazz singer in the band ‘ Jazz it up’. Entering the walled garden, seeing the beautiful flowers we had deliberated over for such a long time, walking with my Dad, seeing all of our guests and then spotting Phil looking back up the aisle to me with the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard is a moment I will never forget.

After the ceremony, we had the Aperitif’s in a different part of the venue. It was behind the main villa, and is an area with a gravel path bordering two large lawns which is all enclosed by huge, manicured hedges. We had a lot of food here, with tables full of cured meats, Italian cheeses as well a table full of seafood and, of course, a well-stocked bar. The first glass of champagne I had with my husband was a refreshing moment. For the first 10 minutes of the Aperitif’s, my nephew who was our page boy, thought it was his duty to follow me around carrying the train of my dress. It soon became too heavy for him and he got bored. Phil and I are really into our food and going out to nice restaurants, so the food and drink aspect of our wedding was really important to us. We found a fabulous caterer, Paolo Gozzini of Excibus catering, and he was so accommodating and made the whole process so easy for us. The Italians love their food and we really embraced their wedding traditions. If you have never been to an Italian wedding, the Aperitif’s are as good and plentiful as the main meal. Phil and I wanted to enjoy the Aperitif’s as much as possible, so made sure we didn’t spend too long having photos taken. Our photographers, Lovefolio, were really good and understood we didn’t want to be away from our guests having photos all afternoon, they didn’t keep us longer than necessary.

Walking from the Aperitif garden area through the ‘secret garden door’ to the Limonia where the evening meal was to be served was a lovely moment. Seeing our guests see the Limonia for the first time was really nice, as it is such a fabulous, unusual building. It is terracotta colour with several big arch doors which allows the afternoon light to filer thorugh. Inside, it has exposed walls with vines growing up them and from the ceiling, there is ‘Fiscus Pumila’ falling from the ceiling beams, which we had fairly lights attached to. It was magical. This was where we had our meal and disco. For our first course, our caterer did our favourite dish from our favourite restaurant, Fumo. The truffle and Pecorino ravioli was just fabulous and followed by one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. After the dinner, we kept with the Italian tradition and had the chef’s make our wedding cake, Millefoglie, in front of our guests. This was decorated with flower petals and tea lights. Phil and I cut this with the Limonia in the background, it looks great on the photos. After cutting the cake, Phil opened a bottle of champagne with a sabre. Considering he hadn’t practised this, he did a really good job and cut the cork off clean. We were also very lucky, the cork landed on our wedding planners foot, so we got to keep it and it’s now in our wedding memories box.

Our first dance was to ‘XO’ by ‘ John Mayor’. It’s such a lovely song, although it doesn’t really have a key change moment to  encourage guests onto the dancefloor, but after a bit of encouragement we were joined on the dancefloor, so it doesn’t really matter. I had put together an example playlist of songs for our DJ to play, and he ended up playing the playlist. He did really well with the order of the songs and gauging when to change the genre or decade, and our dancefloor was just so much fun to be on, particularly when Spice Girls dropped.

So in short, I don’t think I can pick a favourite moment, but from the moment I started walking down the aisle, I had the best time ever.

Amazing people who helped make it happen 

Photographer: Lovefolio @lovefolio

Hairdresser: Ben Matthews from Benjamin Ryan @benjmainryanhair. Ben flew out from Birmingham and did 8 people’s hair. He was fantastic and did my hair exactly how I imagined it. He is also a really nice guy and easy to chat to.

Make-up- Victoria Shimwell @makeupbyvictorialondon. Victoria is my cousin, but she is also an amazing make-up artist. I don’t usually wear a lot of make-up, so I was cognisant that I didn’t want to look like I had been playing in Mummy’s make-up box. She did my make-up amazingly, and I felt so comfortable. She is also the funniest person I know, which put me at ease in the morning before the wedding.

Wedding planner: Elena at Italian Wedding designer @Italianweddingdesigner

Caterer: Paolo Gozzini from Excibus

Bridesmaids dress: TH & TH

Band: Ilaria Giannecchini from Jazz it up. She can be found on facebook.

Thank you to Sophie and Phil for letting us share a little bit of their magical day.

Laura in Stella York Thu, 02 Aug 2018 09:40:15 +0000

“I was so excited to see Laura’s photos, she holds a special place in my heart as she braved wedding dress shopping alone. We went on a journey together to find the one. Every second of every appointment Laura was relaxed and we just had fun. Its so nice when a bride just trusts you, and the end result as you can see is stunning.”

Laura and Rob’s story is below

How did Rob propose? 

We were our walking in the Welsh countryside when Rob proposed to me. It was a complete surprise as he had never shown any interest in marriage or given any hint he would propose. In fact we were both in our jogging bottoms, walking boots and sweating at the top of a very steep incline when he dropped to one knee! That made even more special however that he caught me completely by surprise and in a moment that we could both enjoy.


Where did you get married? 

We got married at Jephson Gardens in Leamington Spa. It was the first venue we looked at after getting engaged. We looked at others but nothing compared as it was just so different and unique, unlike any other wedding we had ever attended. It was perfect for us with the tropical vibes as we enjoy our exotic holidays so much, this was the perfect venue without having to go abroad so all of our friends and family could join us too.

How did you find the Boutique?

I looked for local bridal boutiques and then read about some reviews and visited The Bridal Boutique Warwickshire website. I never ever imagined myself in the princess dress that I picked but I just felt so comfortable yet glamorous in it.  The dress accentuated all of my favourite features such as my waist and my back. It was also the perfect mix with the plain bottom and then the more glitz on the top. My favourite part of the dress was the latte belt! I wanted a subtle bit of colour and this was ideal.


I wore ivory satin shoes from the Rainbow club, which were so comfortable I wore them all day.  I chose not to have a veil as I had a very specific idea for my hair in mind and wanted that to take center stage rather than being hidden by a veil. However I did pop a slide in the back of my hair which was a similar pattern to the lace of my dress to pull the look all together.

I had one Bridesmaid who wore a floor length yellow dress with embellishment around the neck line. The dress was from Dorothy Perkins. Funnily enough I was on holiday when my bridesmaid saw the dress whilst out shopping, as she knows me so well she picked it anyway and then sent me a picture for me to approve!

Rob bought a new blue suit from Hawes and Curtis. He decided that the rest of the grooms party did not need to be in matching suits so they all wore navy suits. He then rented them all matching silver waistcoasts from Peter Posh to bring them all together. Rob wore a bright yellow tie as he likes to be bright and bold in his clothing choices.

We kept our wedding very classic and elegant. We were both very relaxed and wanted to keep our day quite informal so everyone was relaxed and had fun.
My favourite moment of the day was our first dance, we picked You’ve Got the Love by Candi Staton. You could here everyone singing along with us whilst we twirled on the dance floor.
What Laura had to say
“Madi and the team are AMAZING! I was shopping for my dress on my own but with Madi it didn’t feel daunting. She offered me great advice and was very honest and adapted easily to my style of fuss free shopping. She was also very respectful of my budget not trying to put me in anything I couldn’t afford. I found the dress I loved and as it wasn’t a regular they stocked she specially opened the shop one evening for me to try it before it had to be sent back. Couldn’t of asked for more.
Having had my wedding day 3 weeks ago everyone complemented the dress and I felt so comfortable and elegant in it. Couldn’t of picked better.”

Penn Castle wedding photos

Lynne and Jo, who live and work in Dubai, tied the knot on 12th August last year at Pennsylvania Castle in Portland, Dorset.

Lynne came all the way from Dubai to visit us and we are so pleased she did.

Lynne said “I went in for a fitted dress, but when I tried this one on which was recommended by Madi  the Boutique owner, I instantly loved it. The connection to Spain through the Barcelona designer also fitted with our theme and I just loved the detail of the open back of the dress.”
