Just dashing in this afternoon to say a huge well done to a Brides Up North Featured Supplier who has kicked off the season of goodwill early. I’ll always support the efforts of the great and the good in our industry, and Yorkshire boutique owner Julie at The Bridal Gown is one of the best (she knows that the combination of children’s charity and fashion is a sure fire way to my heart).
All Saints Parish Church in Otley was flood lit by Futurist and the aisle was transformed into a glamorous catwalk, with gowns displayed on the pews tops down the aisle to set the scene. The Church gave a unique and atmospheric setting, with fabulous music with stunning acoustics.
Brides Up North Featured Supplier Julie of The Bridal Gown says: The afternoon started with a drinks reception (sponsored by Mikaella) with Pimms and Bubbly for our gorgeous brides. This was followed by the catwalk show with twenty four 2014 collection gowns presented in three themes: Traditional, Contemporary and Great Gatsby. The gowns looked beautiful.
The afternoon concluded with opportunity to meet those involved and prize draws with donations from Rachel Simpson of an £100 voucher (our models said the Rachel Simpson shoes felt amazing on), a bridal head piece from Miranda Templeton and an £100 voucher for accessories from The Bridal Gown. With more bubbly flowing it was a wonderful party atmosphere!
We can’t thank enough all those who were involved and gave their time free of change for this worthy cause. We are still raising money towards our total (update soon!) so please contact Julie at The Bridal Gown if you would like to make a donation or for information about any of the gowns featured.

As a new Mum myself, I know how blessed I am to have a healthy, happy little girl and I’m very proud to support this charity on the pages of the blog.
Well done team!
