The photoshoot in preparation for our forthcoming Vintage Bridal Fair took place yesterday at Ashby Hair on Stranmillis Road, Belfast. The salon was taken over by 5 models, a photographer, hair stylist, make up artist and wardrobe mistress. Fuelled by endless cups of tea, the odd Ulster Fry, Cadbury's Creme Eggs, and chocolate cake we worked hard and had great fun. The models were stunning and the creative team of Ryan the photographer, Kelly the hair stylist and Claire the make up artist was fabulous. Here is a wee taster of the day, but you will have to wait until next week before the end result is unveiled. It will be worth it, I promise!

Every bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day. Maybe she knows exactly what she wants, or maybe she will take many months in the search for her dream dress, but at the end of the day she wants to look and feel special. What counts is that every woman is unique and deserves a dress like no other.

A vintage wedding dress is just as individual as you are. It wont have been seen on the catwalk or hanging on the rails in a bridal boutique. It will guarantee that the wearer looks truly original on her unforgettable day.

Our Vintage Bridal Fair will be like no other bridal fair that you have visited. We are just as unique as you are. Vive la differénce!
