Morning to you all and happy Thursday! Whether you’re at work, at home or on the go whilst checking out the latest wedding inspo, now is the time to stop and let your breath be taken away as we share a sneak preview into the upcoming Ghost Orchid Bride Trunk Show collection. Based in East Yorkshire, this unique bridal showroom has a passion for brides; Ghost Orchid’s mission is for the modern bride to transcend her unique beauty and character whilst providing an extraordinary and inspirational bridal boutique experience. Choosing a wedding dress should be one of the most enjoyable and magical days of a bride’s life right? Well, this is where Ghost Orchid excels…
A Ghost Orchid Bride is wild and free, marching to the beat of her own drum…. she makes the choices that truly reflect her heart and spirit, rather than conforming to the expected.
Along with a totally unique and cherishable experience, brides are offered the choice of high-end fashion designer gowns and a welcoming, non-intimidating and knowledgeable service.
The trunk show, running from 15th – 30th September, will feature a hot-off-the-press ‘Queen of Hearts’ collection from Canadian label & FOR LOVE and sister label Jackson and Grace, which offer bridal gowns for the ‘modern romantic, epitomized by contemporary romance with a confident, feminine and effortless attitude’.
Angel Spendlove (best name!) is the curator of both labels and is offering brides the opportunity to have a private styling session with her if appointments are booked before the 15th September. Don’t think twice girls, get booking your appointment now!
We are so in love with the elegance and charm of her work. Over to creator Angel and Katey at Ghost Orchid Bride to tell you more about her the show and the collection….
Ghost Orchid Bride Trunk Show
Words by Katey at Ghost Orchid
Bridal trunk shows are designer events we host in our boutique where we have gowns we don’t ordinarily stock in store to try and order for a limited time. These are rare opportunities for brides to sample way more gowns at one fitting than they ever would normally get chance to.
These events are by private appointment only and just like a regular bridal consultation in beautiful, relaxing and stylish surroundings. Often our trunk shows are opportunities to order gowns from a newly released collection or a designer that’s not otherwise available in the UK. Don’t forget to look out for the free gifts and discounts that are available at most of our trunk shows!
Queen of Hearts 2019 Collection
I am the Designer and Creative Director at & FOR LOVE which I founded in 2014 shortly after graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto, Canada. Together with &FL business partner and co-owner Lisa Blunt, we launched our second collection Jackson and Grace in the summer of 2018. I grew up in Sydney, Australia and went back to my Aussie roots with my creative style, drawing upon contemporary elements for the modern romantic bride, and directing the brands to focus on capturing an effortless and romantic feel for brides under $2500. Epitomized by contemporary romance with a confident, feminine and effortless attitude, Jackson and Grace is a bridal brand that embraces the diversity between coastal and urban sensibilities.
The new collection is inspired by generations of British Royalty and Nobility, our 2019 Queen Of Hearts collection is a mix of regal and punk inspired looks. With a unique mix of poetic drama and rebellious romanticism, strength and fragility, these gowns are not for the faint of heart.
If you would like to book an appointment for a private styling session with Angel Spendlove at Ghost Orchid Bride, please contact them via firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01482 642015 before the 15th September.
