New from Nieve!

Take a look at our HUGE delivery from Nieve Couture!
All these boxes took some time unpacking but take a sneaky peak at some of the beautiful items that arrived. 

We have fallen in love with this veil - isn't it just fabulous! Perfect for the retro bride who loves the 50's, styles herself on Jackie O and has a great sense of fun! We can't wait to style one of our brides using this fab veil.

Another favourite that arrived in our delivery is this oh so chic and stylish feather headband. The vintage appeal of this headpiece is just divine and the rhinestone and silver pearl embelishment is so chic. Wear with a 20's style dress and your look is complete!

Look we love - Rock Chick Chic!

Cool & elegant David Fielden gown in draped liquid satin and sublime cut with an understated sequin embellishment allowing a spine tingling Swarovski necklace to tease the unexpected.

The most romantic story...

We sold a beautiful David Fielden gown today to a bride who a few weeks ago (remember the snowy Saturday just before Christmas?), walked through 8" snow with her fiance to get to our shop. He of course did not come in but was there to escourt her!
 Today she chose the perfect, unique, but utterly elegant understated David Fielden gown which will sit beautifully in both The Royal Cresent and The Roman Baths.

Floral Flirtation

Always thrilled to find someone in the wedding industry daring to be different and inspire, Grace Farrimond was no exception!

 We were very fortunate to recently meet Grace and have her design some exquisite bouquets from traditional through to contemporarpy especially for our boutique. Brides will now have the opportunity to preview her fabulous creations whilst trying our beautiful gowns to give them the complete special day look.

"We are not carnation and chrysanthemum lovers, but a company that loves change, colour, flair, and spark!" Grace 

Her exciting and new floral design company combines inspirational design with passion and natural artistry for floristry. Her evocative use of colour and shape fuses natural beauty with style and elegance to produce exquisite floral designs for the discerning bride.

A word from one of our brides

We are always interested and grateful to receive feedback from our brides on their experiences whilst at Carina Baverstock Couture.

We were so touched when this email popped into our inbox last week from one of our brides that we thought we would share it with you. We thought she looked beautiful, and when we had found her dress for her she truely looked stunning and the difference in her confidence was so great to see.

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed trying on dresses with you and Lucy yesterday afternoon. You made the whole experience enjoyable and made me feel quite amazing. No doubt you have heard this before but for me this was a real achievement as I never normally look at myself in a full length mirror and it took some courage to come to you. But I'm so glad that I did!
I shall look forward to seeing you again in April, or before if accessories prove to be elusive."
