What to Expect From us on the Day


On the day, brides-to-be can view a wide range of accessories from the award winning Ivory and Co, who’s accessories are designed to be completely comfortable as well as beautiful! We also have further accessories from Lily-bella, the number one for bird cage veils and Yarwood White, who are known for their exquisite bridal belts and jewellery!

Wedding Dresses

In our range of dress suppliers we are so fortunate to be stocking the award winning So Sassi range by Sassi Holford. Being based in Taunton in somerset these designs are made in the UK for the modern bride, traditional in deign but with a modern twist. All dresses can be tweaked to suit each individual making each and every dress unique to that bride!

We have also recently acquired La Sposa, part of the Pronovias group. These dresses are the ultimate in couture and romance. Made with the most delicate of fabrics the structure of these dresses will meet all brides’ expectations. We have only had these dresses in the shop for a few months and they are already so popular. Alfred Angelo is a name renowned within the industry and we have brides travel far distances to come and try our Disney and mainstream collection dresses. With Cinderella being every brides dream of the “big” statement dress.

Allure Bridals collections believe in the details—beading, floral appliqués, dramatic backs, and perfect draping. Every gown features details to set it apart and make the bride shine. Beaded lace, English net and rich satin compose gowns that are nothing but glamorous. Brides deserve to be at their most beautiful, and our aim is not only to design and produce the perfect gown but to provide daily inspiration for our brides-to-be through our media presence. We have also started stocking dresses by Ivory and Co. We have a beautiful blush vintage style shorter dress, Veronique, which we believe will appeal to the quirkier bride looking for something a little different!

Bridesmaid Dresses

The Alfred Angelo Collection is supported by equally lovely bridesmaid dresses in an array of colours. All swatches will be available to see at Saxon Hall. Our other bridesmaids collections are the award winning JLM and the newest supplier to come to Turner and Pennel, Eliza and Ethan whos bridesmaid dress comes in 20 different colours and can be wrapped 25 different ways! We will have models on the day showcasing these dresses so you can see the many designs for yourself!
