Hannah & Casey!

Hello Everyone!

I'm over the moon to share these amazing photos with you today of our epic Boutique Bride, Hannah & hubby, Casey, who got married right here in Penarth in July of this year! These beautiful photos captured by Jon Turtle: Photographer and as you can see their day looks like a total dream!

On an Autumnal day such as today, seeing the warmth of the summer sun captured on Hannah & Casey’s day is so lovely!!!

As soon as Hannah stepped through the Boutique door with her lovely mum & sisters- it was like we had known each other for years! We had such a giggle in our appointment and as soon as Hannah tried on the E&W Couture Tillie Slip paired with the Phoebe crop we all knew it was one! Phoebe is the ultimate in sparkle, with a heavy beaded lace made up of circles with delicate cream pearls and silver threads that shimmers under any light. The heavy weight and loose fit with wide sleeves create a cape-like feel to this crop with an open back and button detailing. She is so modern & so classy - the perfect combo for Hannah!

I also loved that Hannah could take the Phoebe crop off in the evening, and decided add a Claire Hill Designs sash with a gorgeous dove grey ribbon! Two completely different looks in one dress! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Can we also take a moment to applaud both Casey and Hannah on their epic choices of footwear - Louboutin’s for Casey & Velentino's for Hannah - YAS TEAM!

Hannah & Casey championed lots of local Penarth suppliers on their big day - which, for a small and independent business such as ourselves, means so much!  Hannah & Casey's blooms were created by our amazing neighbours- Sweet Peony Floral Design (how beautiful is Hannah's bouquet! I LOVE the hints of succulents throughout the day!)

Hannah's MUA was Lauren Hughes and her Hair Stylist was Tamsin Bryan. Hannah & Casey's gorgeous wedding cake was created by Wish Upon A Cupcake! (It looks amazing!!)

Hannah kindly said these thoughtful words about the her experience of being a Boutique Bride:

There are not enough stars to rate how amazing Rachel and her Bridal Boutique is! It is an exquisite boutique found in Penarth and I was fortunate enough to find a dress that was beyond my dreams.
The boutique hosts a unique collection of wonderful dresses and I was luckily enough to find a beautiful dress by E&W couture, by Sophie the extremely talented welsh designer, . Throughout all of my fittings Rachel and Sophie were amazing, not only ensuring I had the perfect dress and accessories but asking and providing advice on all other aspects of our wedding.
My only dilemma now is what excuse I can use to visit the boutique again!
Highly recommend a visit for an outstanding experience. Thank you Rachel!

Hannah - you are such a wonderful woman, you have the most heartwarming smile and if I was to use one quote to describe you - I would use the one right here in the Boutique - 'A Girl should be two things, Classy & Fabulous’- Coco Chanel

Big love, Cariad mawr,
