Blooming Lovely! A Maternity Bridal Shoot From The Pudding Club, Cheshire

Posted on: 20/06/2013

Its holiday season here on the blog, and as the team take a break until to rest and recharge for the second half of what’s set to be the biggest and best year year yet at Brides Up North HQ, we’ll be leaving you with a reduced blogging schedule so that you still get your daily dose of wedding pretty. 

.

Usual service will recommence on 1st July 2013,  but in the meantime watch out for recaps of our favourite Real Weddings so far in 2013, plenty of eye candy, new features that we won’t be able to wait to share, some special supplier showcases and a couple of surprises too!

If you drop by these pretty pages regularly, you’ll know that my husband and I recently welcomed our baby daughter into the World.  Now, we waited a while after saying I do to start our little family (so I wasn’t a bride with a bump) but due to the nature of my role here at Brides Up North whilst I was expecting there were quite a few big events that I was required to dress the part for… hosting The North of England Wedding Awards or The Brides Up North Christmas Party for starters! So, I totally get the pressure to look good in a gown when you are blooming.  I was lucky enough to have some amazing designers to help me out (thank you Phil at Buckley!) but sometimes, it felt like only a sack would do.

.

But hold the sackcloth! If you’re counting down to your wedding day and to the arrival of a baby – congratulations! -  this one is for you. 

.

The Pudding Club – a new boutique for expectant mums in Knutsford, Cheshire – is the brainchild of Alexandra Macleod who was fantastically underwhelmed with the maternity clothes that were on offer when she was pregnant with her son Dexter.  It all started with a search for a good pair of jeans…

Alex says: As a lover of premium denim, particularly J Brand and Paige, I felt sure that there would be somewhere in the Northwest that would sell premium denim maternity jeans.   I knew that J Brand maternity and Paige maternity jeans were available in London but having googled maternity jeans Cheshire, Manchester, Altrincham, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, Didsbury, Stockport and  LiverpooI without success, it became clear that I was going to have to head to the High Street. 

.

After several frustrating weekends trawling the high streets of the North West, I settled for a pair of jeans from a well-known high street store that were not particularly stylish, comfortable or even a good fit.  I believes that pregnant women should be celebrating their changing body shape, should enjoy shopping for clothes to dress their bump and feel pampered in the process.   The Pudding Club was created to do just that.

With regard to their bridal service, Alex says:  All brides want to feel like a princess on their special day and shopping for your wedding dress should be a magical experience.  Here at The Pudding Club we strongly believe that shopping for a maternity wedding dress should be no different.  Up to now many pregnant brides have had to settle for ordering their dress online and it arriving in a box – creased!
