Real Brides

Alice & Alain
France
Vicky_Rowe_Sybil
"I loved the dress and loved wearing it. Everyone appeared in awe of the dress too, and I had tons of compliments and interest. I would guess more than for a typical dress! I really enjoyed having something that was unusual (no-one had expected it), easy to wear, fun, elegant and yet felt like me. I am inclined to think that it looks even better in real life than when photo graphed. Its superb when actually close up and one can see all the detail, textures, lighting etc.
As for Alain, we both loved his waistcoat and he looked super in it (no bias here).  I think it suited him really well and it worked nicely alongside my dress. Definitely a hit. I hope you agree!" - Alice
Alice is the first bride this year to have worn 'Sybil' one of the new dresses from the heritage collection and she looks fabulous!  Everything was done via phone and Skype.  I even had a go at my first every waistcoat, a custom piece for Alain which really compliments Alice's dress well, quite exciting to be able to go for it a bit with colour like that - Vicky

Primrose real bride

"I first contacted Vicky in November about the beautiful Primrose dress. I was a little worried about getting a dress from so far away (I live in NYC), but the style was exactly what I was looking for so I decided to go for it. Vicky was very helpful throughout the entire process. We spoke on Skype first, and then she sent me a detailed measuring chart. In March I received the dress and went for a fitting in NY. I was so happy to see that the alterations were going to be very minimal. I sent the dress back, and received it all ready to go a few weeks later. A dress is one of the most important parts of the wedding, and I can't thank Vicky enough for making this entire process so easy and pleasant, not to mention for creating such a beautiful piece of art! I can't wait to wear it next month, and show the dress off.
Thank you Vicky!"
Thank you Inessa, it was wonderful working with you and I wish you and will a wonderful future together x - Vicky

Erin
USA - Colorado

Initially Erin and I did all everything remotely, but then when I had her dress ready she was able to combine a visit to the UK with her dress fitting.  We did the fitting and then went out for the day, ate cake, drank coffee and put the world to rights!  It was a typically drizzly welsh day, hopefully Erin will be back someday and we'll do the same again on a sunny day!  That's the plan!!
Erin said "Thank you SO MUCH for creating a beautiful dress.  I love it.  So did everyone else.  I've been telling people left and right how awesome you are"

Real bride wearing Petra with custom veil
Rachael was a private bride of mine and wore a made-to-measure Petra, a custom matching veil and headpiece I fashioned from a beautiful vintage necklace.  She looks absolutely dazzling in this dress and it was such a pleasure working with her!

I received a lovely email from Jonny Barratt Photography sharing these gorgeous photos of Casey and Jake's wedding.  Casey struck gold by buying a sample Greta dress which fit her like a glove.
Casey said "I'm not the best shopper and really liked the style of Jenny Packham dresses but maybe not the price tag. Whilst looking for this type of dress I came across this one gorgeous dress by designer Vicky Rowe. It was a surplus sample dress she was selling, so had never been worn. I bought it straight away thinking it won't fit but it arrived and it did fit and it was the most gorgeous dress I'd ever seen. So lucky!!!'
Jake captured some stunning photo's and really showed how much fun this wedding must have been to attend!  This is obviously down to his relaxed unobtrusive style of photography.

This is such a beautiful wedding and I really encourage you to look at the video if you haven't already.  Church ceremony, short walk then where everyone boarded a boat on the river Thames with a jazz band, after that the guests were taken on a red bus to the Ashmolean museum.
During the run up to Alice's wedding I liaised with her father who had that stunning bracelet made for her which has very special sentimental value.  It's mirroring the beadwork on her dress!  

'A huge thank you again for my beautiful dress, I absolutely loved wearing it and had so many people complimenting it on the day and afterwards. I can't wait to wear it again!" - Alice

Ali & Sam
England
I'm so lucky doing what I do for a living, I meet the most wonderful women and become part of one of the most memorable days of their lives and get to hear about how their wedding plans are progressing, I love it.  Ali and I hit it off from the moment she arrived with her Mum to try on my collection.  She already knew she wanted Evelyn and when she tried it on it was definitely the one....but then I made her try on a few other dresses and before we knew it she had to try everything on twice!  It was a giggle, but its good to be sure.  I was so please to see these gorgeous images taken on her day, she totally rocked Evelyn.  Ali Glitterball!

Emer & Mark
Dublin, Ireland
"Our wedding took place October 2015, in Dublin. I was recommended the Little White Dress bridal shop by a friend and on viewing their website decided that your designs were exactly what I was looking for as I didn't want the traditional bridal look. Evelyn was the one and only dress I tried on and loved it.  You have a wonderful talent and all the best with future designs."  
Emer customised her dress by shortening the sleeve which looks great.  Gorgeous bride.  Congratulations both X

Sabrina & Simon
Warwick Castle, England
Sabrina and Simon wed at the end of July 2015 in Warwick Castle, she made such a beautiful bride.  A delight to work with, she also had a wicked sense of humour that I warmed to instantly, when Sabrina arrived for her consultation it was like a whirlwind of laughter had arrived at my studio.  She wore not 1 but 2 of my dresses, a custom made Rebecca with a drop waist and a Evelyn gown for the evening.   The details of this wedding are so beautiful, I hope to share more on those soon with you....but this will have to do for now.

Congratulations Sabrina and Simon, what a jaw dropping wedding and incredible way to set out on married life x

Sinead & Hu
Ireland
Sinead & Hu married in Ireland at the end of May, I think you'll all agree that Sinead is an absolutely beautiful bride.  I met her in my stockist 'Little White Dress' at a trunk show and did a consultation there, she chose Cleo then I returned to Wales and the fittings etc were taken care of by the wonderful team there in Dublin,  Janet, Amanda & Sarah (such a beautiful shop and the team there are so lovely).  Sineads Wedding was featured on LoveMyDress, to read more about her big day click here.

Michael & Michelle - An antipodean wedding adventure
Can you tell me a little about where you got married & the ceremony.

"Michael and I married on the South Island of New Zealand at The alpine village of Aoraki / Mount Cook, located in Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park . The reason why we choose New Zealand was because of the magnificent range of the Southern Alps; At 3,724 metres, New Zealand's highest mountain, Aoraki / Mount Cook is dazzling, and there are 27 other mountains in this alpine backbone which peak at over 3,050 metres, and hundreds of others not far short of that all making up the famous Southern Alps.
The ceremony was held on the Liebig Dome which sits on the edge of Aoraki Mt Cook National Park and enjoys breath taking views of New Zealand's highest peak Aoraki Mount Cook and the Murchison Glacier at 7600ft. This was a unique opportunity to have our wedding ceremony and photographs taken amongst the magnificent scenery of the Southern Alps whilst enjoying the absolute stillness and solitude of our surroundings. The ceremony was shared with very close family and friends; both my Daughters and Niece were bridesmaids. "

If you could sum up the style of your wedding in a few words, what would it be?

"In a few words the style of our wedding was one with nature in a relaxed, informal environment surrounded by mountains , and open to all of natures elements and timeless beauty and embrace all that nature has to offer and to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our surroundings."

Why a Vicky Rowe Dress?
"I choose a Vicky Rowe dress because of the timeless elegant design and simplicity of the dresses; they didn't have stiff bodices or look like traditional wedding dresses of today which i wanted to steer away from . I love the fashion of the 1920s; the intricate beading and the detailed patterns and cut of the dresses which have a silky and flowing elegance of simplicity and after months of research I found the perfect designer and my perfect dress.

"The overall personal experience of meeting the designer and having an opportunity of a personal consultation and fitting from start to finish was wonderful, fun, without anguish and it beat going into a wedding boutique and buying off the rail so thank you Vicky for everything it made my wedding day extra special."

"My dress will be worn again very shortly for a very close friends wedding anniversary in July; all the ladies are invited to wear their wedding dresses!!!!! so perfect for me. I couldn't imagine not wearing my dress again and because it is very different to a traditional wedding gown i can easily get away with wearing my dress at a Summer Ball or other event. 
thanks millions Vicky"
So pleased to have been part of your special day Michelle, wishing you both a very happy married life together x
Michelle wore an Amber Primrose.

"The Rebecca was the first and only wedding dress I tried on. As soon as I saw it online I fell in love with it, and as soon as I tried it on I knew it was "The One". It was perfect, the vintage feel and the stunning embellishments, was exactly what I had always hoped for and imagined, as I really wanted something a little different from the "norm".
I had so many wonderful compliments on the day, and since photographs have been on Facebook I have had enquiries from friends and friends of friends who are planning their wedding, asking me where I got my dress from.
I couldn't be more grateful to Vicky Rowe for making me the dress of my dreams".  Carly
