“Louise’s studio was the first (and only) wedding dress boutique that I visited. I had heard about her sample sale a couple of weeks after we got engaged and popped along to have a quick look, having seen her beautiful Iris dress on the website the day before. The second I tried the dress on I knew it was perfect and exactly what I wanted. I couldn’t believe my luck that it was on sale too – having been used in a photoshoot previously. It was slightly too big for me but Louise assured me that she could easily tweak it to fit – and she was absolutely right. It really did look like it had been made for me by the time it was taken in. The whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish – really relaxed, friendly expert advice in a beautiful setting (it is worth going just to see the lovely studio!). I adored the dress and only wish I could wear it again.”

So many happy brides came to Second the Best Bride to buy their dresses. Our lovely model, Miranda Stevenson looked gorgeous in a Christiana Couture dress for the Preview with her hair loosely plaited by Severin Hubert from the Hepburn Collection, for the perfect romantic, slightly bohemian relaxed look that symbolises weddings for summer 2015.
