We hope you enjoy the bridal inspiration that is Hollie’s story…


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

I went for Catherine Deane separates – I didn’t have any particular designer in mind but when I tried on the pieces they just felt like ‘the one’ for me. I liked the simple elegance as I don’t like a huge amount of detail or pattern etc in my clothing. The pieces were simple and elegant, then with the detailed top over the bodice – I felt very bridal.

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

I bought my shoes from The Ivory Secret – which I still love and got a lot of compliments on them on the day.

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

I felt very comfortable in my outfit all day, including the shoes which was a big bonus. Most importantly I felt really special in it, there was no doubt for me I’d absolutely made the right choice, it was exactly what I wanted.

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

Six I think.

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

I liked the personal service of The Ivory Secret – and I knew I was in safe hands if I had needed/wanted any alterations. I also found the pieces available matched my style so, though there was a clear winner, I would have felt happy in almost anything you had available.

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

I don’t think I can add anything to the above, except to say I would (and do) highly recommend the Ivory Secret to everyone.

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

My florist, Amanda Windsor, was fantastic. And I highly recommend my videographer/photographer Alan at DVX Productions.
