November 15th, 2016 | Rachel Parry


There’s nothing better than seeing two of our fabulous Sponsors join forces to bring brides super special events – and that’s exactly what will be happening on Saturday 26th November, when The Little Pearl Bridal Boutique in Pickering, North Yorkshire, will be hosting a Felicity Cooper Bridal designer day.

The fabulous event will not only include an exclusive preview of the gorgeous Felicity Cooper Natural Soul 2017 collection, but those who order a gown on the day will also receive a 10% discount. Oh and there will be cake and fizz too!

Tempted? We thought so! Here’s the lovely Diana, owner of The Little Pearl, with all the details.


Tell us a little about what brides-to-be can expect from the designer day…

diana says: The event will include an exclusive preview of the Felicity Cooper Natural Soul 2017 collection, along with a few new pieces that have yet to be seen! We will have 10% off any gown order placed on the day, plus we will be surrounded by fizz, cakes and a goody bag for every bride who comes along.

What are the benefits of the event?

Brides to be will get an exclusive preview of the full Felicity Cooper 2017 collection, plus a one to one styling appointment with the designer herself! This is a total treat for any bride-to-be, where they can chat about creating their dream bridal look.


How many appointments will be available on the designer day and how long will the appointments last?

Appointments last for one-hour-and-a-half, with appointments from 9am to 6pm.

Tell us a little about the Felicity Cooper collection…

Creative Director, Fiona Cooper, has sourced the most beautiful free-flowing fabrics, delicate laces and exquisite beadwork, taking inspiration for the Natural Soul Collection from the desires of real brides to look and feel absolutely stunning on their big day. The 2017 collection consists of 18 new pieces and appeals to every bride, from the modern and quirky, to the elegant, vintage and bohemian. The beautiful cuts and fabrics offer a stunning selection for the cool, fashionable and confident bride.


Any particular favourites or stand out pieces within the collection for you personally? 

I love a full skirted gown, so the amazing Bravely has certainly stolen my heart. For more of a soft, boho look, I just adore the open back detail on Matilda too.

What sizes are Felicity Cooper designs available in?

All of the gowns can be ordered in sizes from a 2 to a 24.

What is the price range of the Felicity Cooper dresses that you stock?

The price of the collection ranges from £1,350 to £1,900.


What are you looking forward to most about the designer day event?

I love welcoming our very talented designers to the boutique and giving brides that special one-to-one styling opportunity. Who wouldn’t love to meet their own gown designer and create their dream bridal look together?

Do you have any advice for brides-to-be attending the designer day?

I would recommend coming to the designer day having already tried on some gown styles so that you have an idea of what you are looking for. This will help to get the most out of your appointment, so that you can really get into the detail of your whole bridal look.

How do ladies go about booking an appointment for the events?

They can email me at, call the boutique on 01751 798080, or send me a message via our Facebook page.

For you ladies on the dress hunt we have details of yet another fabulous bridal event!

On 17th September our wonderful Sponsor Lovebird Brides, which is located in the pretty Yorkshire town of Ilkley, will be hosting a Charlie Brear designer day, giving you lucky brides-to-be the opportunity to be among the first to try on dresses from Charlie’s brand new collection. Not only that, but there will be an expert Charlie Brear stylist present at the event, and those that make a purchase on the day will be given an exclusive 10% discount.

Here with all the details is the owner of Lovebird Brides, the lovely Laura…

laura says: The new Charlie Brear collection will be with us for this exciting event. All appointments will have exclusive use of the boutique, with refreshments, and there is 10% off any Charlie Brear orders made on the day.

What are the benefits of the event to brides-to-be?

Those attending the event can be one of the first to see the amazing new collection with a huge selection of stunning dresses available to try on, that we wouldn’t usually have in the boutique. Furthermore, Jess from Charlie Brear will be here for the day so brides will have the opportunity to be styled by one of the Charlie Brear team.

How many appointments are still available for the designer day?

We only have two spaces available, so brides need to book ASAP!


Tell us a little about the new Charlie Brear collection…

For 2017, Charlie Brear presents a fashion-led bridal collection inspired by a modern take on cocktail wear. Off-the-shoulder sleeves, front-split skirts, low sexy backs can all be seen in collection, alongside the signature bridal separates. In addition to sandwiched silks, crepe and fine grain satins are new innovative fabrics, including body form stretch lace and crepe, and architectural lace.

Any particular favourites or stand out pieces within the collection for you personally?

I adore the Marceau dress with its low back and wrap around detailing. The Wren dress is beautiful too in full lace with off-the-shoulder strap. Saying that, the whole collection is stunning!
