Our Real Vintage Brides

The best part of working in the wedding industry is without a doubt getting to meet all of the lovely bride-to-be's that come into our boutique. It's such a joyful occasion when a bride comes along ready to find her perfect dress, and we love sharing the experience with them and getting to know each bride along with the selected family or friends they bring with them...

Kate was one of the first brides who booked in when we opened our boutique and we were privileged to have her travel all the way from Nottingham to come and see us! After trying only a few dresses on, she found THE dress in our ivory and nude lace trim pleated detail 1930's dress - very reminiscent of the dress that Lady Mary Crawley wore in Downton Abbey!

Laura broke tradition when she came to see us because she brought her fiancée Dieter along with her! Laura is originally from Paris and Dieter from Germany, and they were tying the knot in the Lake District with just close family and friends. After trying on a selection of dresses, she chose a beautiful vanilla toned late 1970's dress with lace top and sleeves and a full floaty skirt, with Dieters loving approval! Who says you have to stick with tradition when searching for your wedding dress?!

Kelly came to see us one November afternoon and was getting married only the following month just before Christmas, and even though some brides would be terrified at the thought of not having a dress yet, Kelly was calm and enjoyed the trying on process. She picked a beautiful heavily beaded 1960's scalloped hem dress complete with a big bow at the back! With it being Christmas time, Kelly accessorised with a fur stole and bright red heels after trying on the red shoes we have in our dressing room! Soon after the wedding she and her new husband Matt were getting away from the winter cold and relocating to sunny San Francisco! We're not jealous at all!

Cassie had got married in fabulous Las Vegas but she came to us looking for a dress for her wedding party back at home in Liverpool. She had seen a silver beaded chiffon 1970's dress on our website and was hoping it was still there when she came for her appointment! Luckily it was, and she fell in love with it as soon as she tried it on! Cassie also bought a stunning silver diamanté side tiara from us that just finished the look off perfectly.

Those are just some of the Real Vintage Lane Brides we have had the pleasure of meeting. We have plenty more brides with upcoming weddings and will share those with you as soon as we can. If you are looking for a beautiful vintage wedding dress and want to book a fun, friendly and relaxed appointment please give us a call on 01204 301208 or email us at
