When the boss gets married you know it’s a go big or go home situation.

After 13 years, three countries, two continents, new businesses, two degrees, one masters, and a million adventures in-between, this wedding had been long anticipated and neither the  Covid virus or Lockdown number two was not going to stop it or dull the sparkle.

Five Years prior a dress arrived from San Francisco – that can most accurately be described as ‘What would Barbie wear to her wedding in 1984? – It was love at first sight. Large bell skirt, high Victorian neckline and large puffball sleeves, all beautifully embroidered in a large thorny climbing rose pattern.

The dress was unaltered except to remove the high neckline, and follow the lined sweet heart bodice of the dress. And the personalized finishing touch of the bride and groom’s names, wedding date and first dance chorus hidden among the roses of the skirt.

With a bold dress, less is more when it comes to accessories and a handmade bandeau birdcage was all that was needed.


What a beautiful couple, congratulations to our gorgeous bride Annie on her big day, she absolutely rocked the Made With Love Stevie gown Xxx



With so much uncertainty facing us in the coming weeks, we have to remember that love prevails!

We are so happy for our gorgeous Bella Bleu Bride Kate and her lovely husband who finally got to say I do in 2020 Xxx

Although their original date didn’t go as planned, Natalie and her handsome husband got to celebrate with their friends and family this summer and enjoy the big day they had originally planned, looking amazing in her Kite & Butterfly Rena gown. Xxx


Life might be strange and often times difficult right now, but love is definitely in the air Xxx

So happy to see our beautiful Bella Bleu Bride Ciara, who after postponing her June wedding got to say I Do last month!! What an absolute stunner in her original 1960’s vintage wedding dress Xxx


A great end to 2020 and start to 2021, with our beautiful Bella Bleu bride Kelly who got to say ‘I do’ on New Years and ring in the new year as a married Lady, looking absolutely stunning in the Made With Love Andy lace gown, full length ivory veil with satin trim and Harlo Australia Adele embellished, block heel sandals all from Bella Bleu Xxx

Thanks again Lucy and I wish you the best for the future.

Just wanted to say thank you again for all the help finding the dress. I wouldn’t have even taken it off the rack if it wasn’t for you and now I can’t imagine having worn anything else. Even the process of buying it was so lovely and personal, it was the best experience we had. The earrings worked a treat as well, thank you so much for coming to the rescue on those. I’m going to send on a few photos there so you can see all you’re work out together 😂

Hi Lucy! I bought my wedding dress from you back in February and got married on Friday and just wanted to thank you again for my beautiful dress.

I got so many remarks about it on the day and just wanted to send on a couple of pics to show you how it looked all put together. Thank you so much again 😊

When the sun is shining and this arrives in your inbox we can’t help but smile.

Just a quick email to say that my wedding was last Saturday and I just adored my dress. Thanks so much for your help  deciding on it, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with !! I loved my dress and raved about it and you to everyone who asked.

Our beautiful bride Eileen in her Frankie gown from Made With Love Xxx


When  a message like this arrives in your inbox, it can’t but make your day Xxx

It is a terrible thing when you can’t remember the name of the lady who single handedly help save your wedding day!
I entered your store on the 29th of January without appointment and a wonderful woman took care of me. She didn’t bat an eyelid when I started crying as I explained I was getting married the following week and still had no dress. Anyway after the tissues where given out she helped me find my prefect dress, she then arranged for me to visit a seamstress to say this lady is an angel is an understatement. I will be forever thankful for her and for your store. 
I have attached pictures to show you how well it turned out, cliche as it sounds I really did feel like a princess.

Hi Lucy. So just wanted to write a small note saying THANK YOU so much for your help and kindnesses when picking out my dress and accessories. The dress was absolutely perfect and so lovely to wear the whole day and night. Trust me it was put to the test with
LOADS of dancing as our band were absolutely brilliant! (converse all stars if ever you have a bride looking for an excellent, non traditional band). As it happened we ended up being blessed with lovely sunshine so my dress actually couldn’t have been better. And I absolutely love the belt too you were a pleasure to do business with right from the outset and made me feel so at ease. Thanks so much
