A few weeks ago, I was invited to attend a special preview for a brand new wedding collection by Ears & Whiskers & With Love From Bobbin. Its the first time these lovely ladies have collaborated and I was very keen to see the collection up close as well as show my support. It was also a great chance to catch up with other industry friends and of course drink lots of procecco (which is customary at these sorts of events…honest!) You’ll be pleased to know I also took lots of pictures too :)

So, Who are Ears & Whiskers and With Love From Bobbin?
Oh my, if you’ve not heard of these ladies where have you been hiding?
Sophie (on the right) is a Bridal Couture Designer and her company is called Ears & Whiskers. Ashley (on the left) creates the most incredible bespoke bridal accessories and her company is called With Love From Bobbin.
Both of these lovely ladies are based in Wales! and we’re very lucky to have them.
When I first saw the collection, my inital thought was, oh my, the gowns are see-through! Erm…not knowing what to say out loud…I thought..ok… this is very different…very edgy and for the very brave.
What I didn’t notice, were the two slip dresses to the side. Sophie (the designer) explains,”A bride would choose one of the slips which would be worn underneath her chosen gown“. Arh, that made sense. I LOVED that idea!
It then instantly became apparent just how fabulous and feminine this collection is. A bride isn’t restricted to choosing just a dress, this collaborative collection allows a bride to create a complete unique look. Combining various pieces; The slip (available in different shades), the dress itself and then the accessories. There are so many different looks that can be achieved. I was hooked!
The Bridal Gowns
The detail in these gown are incredible. Take a look…
This collection by With love from Bobbin is simply timeless. They pieces each ooze style, individuality and give a courtesy to glamourous bygone era’s such as the 20’s. I only wish I could find an excuse to wear these everyday.
