Hello and welcome to my Bridal Couture label Amy Mair Couture.
I started working on my brand and designing wedding gowns a few years ago however it was in the summer this year that I released my signature couture collection ‘Eira’ and launched the Amy Mair Couture brand independently with the opening of my new Cardiff Studio Boutique in September this year.
The Studio Boutique is in the heart of Cardiff centre, in the sophisticated Creative Quarter of the Morgan arcade. The studio boutique is where I conduct all of my appointments along with developing my creative work.
I believe I have achieved to incorporate the magical process of creating wedding gowns along with a luxurious and relaxed feeling of being in a boutique. I feel inspired by every bride I meet and their journey to choosing the perfect collection gown or a bespoke gown uniquely made for them.
The move to Cardiff was very exciting for me as I wanted to start a new life in the city and evolve the Amy Mair Couture brand so that I could meet more brides and be in close contact with brides more frequently. I want to offer as much time and advice to each bride that I can and hopefully build a friendship over the consultation period, choosing your wedding dress or having one made is a truly magical experience, I want to make the journey as joyous and relaxed as possible.
The signature collection, Eira launched this year in celebration of the relocation and New Studio Boutique. The creation of this collection was a truly exciting time for me, it was the first independent Amy Mair Couture Collection and the development of it was highly awaited.
In celebration of the opening of the New Studio Boutique and the re-launch of the brand to a Cardiff audience I would like to announce this SPECIAL OFFER that we will be promoting throughout the whole month of November and take the opportunity to celebrate the completion of the studio boutique décor.
We will be offering 20% off any gown from the Eira Collection throughout the month of November.
20% off a Couture gown is a fabulous offer, you could be saving up to £450 off your couture wedding gown.
Each gown is exclusive to Amy Mair Couture studio boutique, we have the gowns all displayed in the beautiful space ready to be tried on. The sample gowns range from a size 10 to size 12. However they each are made from a size 6 up to a 14/16. A made to measure service is also available on request.
On purchase of an Eira Collection gown the deduction will be made, and the deposit of this total sum will be requested in November for the 20% off to be issued.
The Eira Collection
There are five gowns in the Eira Collection. Today, I’d like to introduce you to two of them; Llana & Elena.
Ilana is a fishtail gown with a soft French lace overlay on silk duchess satin. The French lace is extremely delicate, soft and is 100% pure silk. The lace neck detail gives the illusion that the lace stands on its own however there is a soft tulle continuing the line into a narrow neckline. The tulle then opens out into a triangular strap at the back which also reflects the French lace that I on the bodice.
Ilana is decorated at the underbust with diamante crystals in a series reflecting leafs, this trim continues all the way around the underbust and meets the fastening button back.
The classic fishtail shape creates a beautiful silhouette with a largely curved train emphasising the curves from waist to hips.
The lower dress where the French lace meets the silk tulle is finished beautifully with a scalloped edging. The tulle has a lovely light movement.
- Ilana Gown
- Price: £1,755.00
- Promotional Price £1,404.00
- Saving £351
- Available from size 6 to 14
The second gown featured in today’s post is Elena
Elena is a luxurious gown, it is fully beaded in circular motions, each circle has a series from small to large and each circle has its own design using different diamante, sequin and beadwork.
The gown features a boat neck shaped neckline graduating into an open V back. Elena has a long beaded sleeve with a scalloped edge finish.
This gown has a very subtle train and buttons fastening down the centre back. Elena is inclusive of a belt in the same circular beading movement, it is perfect to enhance a waistline. However without the belt the silhouette is simply classic.
Elena is also available to order with no sleeve or a cap sleeve if you desire to change the design. There is no extra charge to amend this.
We can design the Elena gown to have no sleeve and keep a simple boat neck design which looks beautiful also
The production of the Elena gown is very time consuming so please consider this with regards to your order date..

We have an appointment only service to ensure that each bride can have as much time as they desire in the studio boutique, it also allows each bride to enjoy a personal and private experience.
