We Love You Westpoint!

Well...what a crazy whirlwind of wedding fabulousness!  Bride: The Wedding Show at Westpoint Arena, Exeter never disappoints as the Southwest's biggest and most glamorous wedding fair x  

We met over 100 fab brides over the weekend, each with their own unique vision for their Wedding Day look, and we just loved hearing about every single Big Day plan!  

Lovely also shone on the catwalk for the first time at this October Westpoint show, with the models rocking our gorgeous new 2018 Charlie Brear, Hayley Paige and Rembo Styling dresses six times, resulting in a hole love of love and sighing over sparkle from Southwest Brides.

Westpoint Brides we loved you all and we already can't wait to top our palm and sparkle themed wedding stand in March at the Spring Fair x
