Here is third instalment of  our Friday Feature, where you can discover what it is like to be an Ivory Secret bride.

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!


Our beautiful bride Jess married Peter in August 2018 at Devon wedding venue Rockbeare Manor. Here’s what she had to say about shopping for ‘the one’…

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

The designer was Catherine Deane and the dress was called Zoe.

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

The Joyce Jackson ‘Phoenix’ Veil – it framed the dress perfectly.

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

I felt a millions dollars. My dress fitted perfectly, the material was so soft and I could manoeuvre in my dress with complete comfort all day/night.

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

I tried on approximately 15 dresses over a period of time but only 4 in the Ivory Secret.

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

The experience as a whole is one to remember but I most enjoyed the exclusiveness of being in the shop with just my mum, maid of honour and Eleanor and having the time to chat about my style and wishes for my wedding dress.

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

The Ivory secret is truly the most perfect experience when looking for a wedding dress. From the moment I walked in, Eleanor’s kind, understanding nature allowed me to feel both relaxed and excited at the same time. She listened, gave advice and I ended up finding the perfect dress for me. The set up of the shop so beautiful with dresses, accessories, shoes and veils on show and available to buy. I never felt pressured to purchase anything. Overall, I would (and have!) recommend the Ivory Secret to every bride-to-be I know.

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

Maxi Photography – Mel and Justin are amazing and they captures so many iconic moments of our day.
