Golden Age of Curves

Golden Age of Curves

At Bridalwear by Emma Louise we aim to provide brides the best customer service with a fabulous collection of gowns when searching for ‘The One’ and we realised that we were missing gowns for our plus size brides to try on properly and so decided to remedy this by introducing our new ‘Curvy Collection’.

We wanted to showcase our new Plus Size ‘Curvy’ Bridal Collection with a photo shoot that was glamorous, elegant and fabulous. The idea behind this shoot came about when I was discussing with my family how much I loved our new ‘Curvy Collection’ but I wanted to do a photo shoot to really show how stunning these gowns were on plus size brides.

Very often even though gowns are available in plus sizes often the models in the pictures are far from it so your average plus sizes brides really struggle to imagine what the gown will look like, I know I did.

 

 

As I was explaining this, my dad simply said – ‘What about old Hollywood Glamour – Marilyn Monroe was adored for her figure and she was a size 16?’ and so began ‘The Golden Age of Curves’ photo shoot.

Having worked with her before, and being such a fabulous advocate for plus size brides, I knew I wanted Kerry Baker on board – not only for her talent as a make up artist but also to model our gorgeous gowns. Knowing my vision for the shoot Kerry suggested Nic as our other model – and how perfect these girls were!

Within a few days (and many facebook messages!) our amazing team was put together; Teresa C Photography, Mairead at Wedlocks for hair and Sarah from The Rose Boutique all to be shot at Mitton Hall.

We had taken care to make sure the gowns being featured suited the girls’ figures and demonstrated different styles to brides.

On the day we arrived at the stunning Mitton Hall we walked in to see the staircase being transformed with glamorous gold foliage and red roses by Sarah and Kerry and Nic being made up like Hollywood Sirens – sexy, sultry and stunning. We had taken a lot of care and planning to make sure the gowns being featured suited the girls’ figures and demonstrated different styles to brides that suited the theme of the day – something we do in all our bridal appointments at the boutique.

 

 

We have featured a variety of dresses from Ronald Joyce, Allure and Bonny Bridal with accessories from the fabulous Ivory & Co. We just love how each image truly encapsulates the glamorous vision of the shoot and how plus size bridal is truly gorgeous and sexy.

This is just a small selection of the gowns we have available to try on and whether our brides are looking for simple, classic and elegant or Hollywood Glamour that truly makes an entrance we pride ourselves on helping brides of all shapes and sizes find their perfect gown.
