Vintage Lace - The Jane & Edward Collection
My Little Wedding Shop is an exclusive bridal boutique in beautiful Shropshire that is one of only three such stores in the West Midlands to boast official Rock My Wedding approval. This mark of recognition means that exceptional service teamed with expert individual styling is guaranteed to brides purchasing wedding gowns from My Little Wedding Shop.
The talented designer at My Little Wedding Shop, Jennifer Bone, recently launched the boutique's first own brand of bridal wear; the Jane & Edward Collection. Named after one of the most famous fictional romances, that between Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester in the passionate novel by Charlotte Brontë, the collection is inspired by the beautiful, elegant lines of a bygone era and is characterised by the use of fine silk and vintage lace styles.
We are incredibly proud and excited to announce that all of the lace and lace trim used in this stunning debut collection has been provided by DHJ Weisters and Platinum Bridal Fabrics. Commenting on her reasons for choosing us to supply the required bridal fabric, Jennifer said, "After searching suppliers all across the country, I found that the laces available from DHJ Weisters are the most beautiful and also the highest quality. All of our brides comment on the lace we use on our dresses and as a designer, I have been found laces that have complemented the feel of the collection perfectly".
Jennifer was asked to comment further on the evocative choice of Jane & Edward as the name of the exciting new collection. "The Jane & Edward brand draws on my love of iconic historical silhouettes," she said, before adding that she had "sourced stunning British laces and combined them with the finest silks to produce a collection of dresses that use texture and simple detail to complement the natural female figure". Each unique dress in the Jane & Edward Collection is made to measure, ensuring that the perfect fit is achieved. This will allow the bride to move freely and comfortably while allowing the vintage lace and tactile silk to be displayed and admired.
To launch the collection, models had hair styled by Mary Ragg and make-up by Michelle Clarke Graham. After being fitted with jewellery by Julia Ann Davenport, the models then wore dresses from the exclusive Jane & Edward collection and were elegantly and tastefully photographed by Dan Salter from Seven Weddings Photography. As can be seen from the resulting images, the bridal gowns are incredibly attractive, unique and exciting.
We look forward to seeing the collection grow and develop as brides return to the wedding gowns of a more elegant and refined era, combining a vintage lace style with the most stunning silk.
