As a couple you want your wedding day to be bespoke and feel like it’s from the heart. The best way to make sure your day is unique is to wear a tea length wedding dress. We are the leading UK suppliers of short and tea length wedding dresses.

You may have a friend or family member who loves to bake and can make your cake. You may also be able to create your own wedding cake, like our real bride Emma. Or have a real retro wedding with a homemade cake table for dessert and get your family to all contribute their favourites.
