#FRIDAYFEATURE is our new series of blog posts, sharing the experiences of our Ivory Secret brides.

Here they tell their bridal story, reviewing their dress and shopping experience with us. We hope seeing the dresses loved and worn by fellow brides will be a source of unlimited wedding inspiration!


Here is the lovely Natalie, who became wife to Luke in June 2018. Her beautiful outdoor photoshoot is everything!

Q1: Which designer or style did you go for and what was the main reason for it being your winner?

Catherine Deane’s Tamsin Blush dress. For me it just felt right the moment I put the dress on. It was quite unique for a wedding dress and I thought it was something different with the blush tones. I wanted something more floaty and relaxed than fitted and tight. It was the perfect dress, so beautiful, floaty and stunning and so comfortable. I did not feel swamped in the dress at all. It really fitted the theme of our day perfectly. I felt truly amazing in the dress.

Q2 : Did you buy any accessories from us? If so, what were they?

Yes I did, my shoes were Rachel Simpson (style name Isla) They were stunning and really went well with my chosen dress. I also purchased some beautiful copper style hair slides (copper rose hair pins from Agnes Walker)

Q3 : How did you feel in your outfit on the big day?

Amazing, breathtaking, genuinely like a million dollars!

Q4 : How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?

Not too many actually! I think counting other dresses from other stores I think this was maybe the 6th or 7th dress but it was one of a few I tried on in my first visit to Ivory Secret.

Q5 : What did you enjoy most about your experience at The Ivory Secret?

The whole experience with Eleanor was fab. Relaxing, and having the boutique to yourself whilst trying on dresses makes the experience feel special and more intimate, you can focus and relax more without other shoppers around.

Q6 : Do you have any other thoughts or feedback about your experience ?

I love The Ivory Secret, the whole experience I received was fantastic and customer service brilliant. The experience was as I imagined it would be and should be and more. Eleanor was so lovely, helpful and really has a very thorough knowledge of all the dresses and suppliers. Just a fantastic experience.

Q7 : Do you have any wedding suppliers you would recommend to other brides-to-be?

Absolutely – lots! Catherine Deane, Rachel Simpson, all our wonderful suppliers, including the talented Mimosa Photography who captured our amazing day.
