Last year to celebrate our 2nd year of sucessful dressmaking, No 9 Bridal Couture launched what we believe was a pretty amazing competition.
We teamed up with HF Couture and Xposure Photography to offer one lucky bride-to-be the chance of winning a very unique experience.
The winner would receive:
1. A bespoke wedding gown to the value of £1,000 hand crafted by ourselves.
2. An exclusive tiara or accessory made to their own design to the value of £100,
supplied by HF Couture
3. The choice of a ‘Model’ or ‘For Your Eyes Only’ professional photo shoot to the value of £300 as well as a slide show DVD containing a selection of the photographs taken by
One runner up would receive a £75.00 voucher to be redeemed against a bridesmaid gown.
All we wanted to know was how your fiancé proposed.
Competition between our five finalists was pretty fierce, but we were delighted with our winner, Abi who married last weekend.
Abi chose a timeless style which consisted of silk, tulle and corded lace in ivory. We also had a beautiful hand beaded embelishment worked on to the gown by the very talented Jane at HF Couture to add a finishing touch of couture luxury.
Abi chose to take advantage of our personal dressing service and we arrived promt at 'Flash' at 8.30am.
The air was calm and peaceful inside the cottage. Not a hint of nerves or disorganisation anywhere. After helping her four lovely bridesmaids dress, I finally helped Abi into her gown just before 10am.
The competition was a huge success and we shall miss Abi terribly.
May I take the opportunity of wishing both Abi and her new husband the very best for the future.
