St Pierre Photo Shoot – ‘Rose Room for Beautiful Curvy Brides’

Introducing our new department for dresses sizes 18 – 30, based at our Newport Store

From personal experience I found that when trying on wedding dresses in most boutiques, that sample sizes started from a size 8 to a size 16. Bearing in mind that most bridal manufacturers sizing charts are a ‘bit on the mean’ side, so the size 16 is actually nearer a size 14.  So this gave us food for thought………We have a gorgeous selection of bridal gowns from top designers. So we spoke to our good friends at Mori Lee and Ronald Joyce and ordered in a selection of stunning elegant gowns in sizes from 18, but mostly ordered in sizes 24, 26, 28 & 30.

We chose beautiful ball gowns, princess dresses that oozed glamour and sparkle…..the kind of dress you have always dreamed of along with a range of shapely silhouettes to include, dropped waist and mermaid style to flatter the curvier figure. We selected necklines that were modest and offered support for the fuller bust.

We were very excited at All About Eve when our gorgeous dresses arrived!! But….all the promotional pictures were of models size 8-10. We really wanted to show these stunning gowns on real models with a gorgeous curvy figure. In March we launched a Facebook campaign to find beautiful curvy models, to showcase our stunning bridal dresses at a photo shoot.  We were blown away by the response and the positive feedback from other brides that were having the same dilemmas as myself. After much deliberation we decided on two gorgeous ladies Francesca Zerbini & Karan Dyer.

We have exhibited at many wedding fayres over the years at St Pierre Golf & Country Club and love the character and setting of this stunning venue, so we were delighted when Lisa the Wedding co-ordinator agreed to let us stage our photo shoot there.  Next, we hand selected suppliers to compliment the shoot. We had previously worked with lovely couple Julian & Laura Berry from Dream Wedding Photography & Videography, please see the stunning videos taken of both our stores on our new website.

Our wonderful friends from multi award winning Hilary’s Floral Design provided beautiful arrangements for the table display and bouquets for our models to compliment the theme for the day which was ‘Sophisticated Elegance’.  The most stunning Rolls Royce Silver Wraith named ‘Betty’ was kindly supplied by award winning Henrietta Hire. I think you will agree that ‘Betty’ complimented our venue and gowns perfectly!

Award winning hair stylist Taryn Williams kindly styled the models hair for the day. It was a little breezy and the hair stayed beautifully in place. So this is testament to Taryn’s experience and skill.  Super talented Gemma Thomas from All Made Up, make up artist created beautiful, flawless make up for our girls which again lasted beautifully all day.

The gorgeous cake was supplied by award winning Little Cake Cupboard, who’s creative flair and vision offers something a little different for her brides.

A glorious sunny morning was the perfect start to our day, teamed up with the best wedding suppliers, the loveliest models and gorgeous venue. We would like to present our ‘Rose Room for beautiful curvy brides’ Ring our Newport store on 01633 243943 to book into our Rose Room Department now.

All About Eve Bridals would like to thank everyone that was involved in the photo shoot. xxx
