Valentia Real Brides Story - Wedding November 2017
When Kate first visited the Boutique looking to find her dream wedding dress, she had a very clear idea in mind - Game of Thrones!
She absolutely was entranced by this fantastic TV series and loved the character Daenerys so much so, Kate wanted her wedding dress to be inspired by this famousTV character.
Our In-house Designer and Head Bridal Stylist Jools assisted Kate at her first consultation which lasted a few hours. Kate initially tried on over a dozen gowns eventually leaving her undecided between two gowns.
Jools recommended Kate to take a couple of days to think about the two dresses and make another appointment for a few days time.
On Kate's return visit to the Boutique, Jools, who hadn't actually watched any of the Game of Thrones series had then had a chance to do some research on the TV character Daenerys. Jools was now buzzing with inspirational ideas on how to make Kate's dream wedding dress idea into a reality.
Kate chose a beautifully contemporary styled gown called Imperia, and with a few customisations such as twin shoulder trains, dragon brooches and a celtic styled bridal belt and Voila!
Kate had with a little help from Jools created her dream wedding dress - a Daenerys inspired gown!!!.
Kate found some stunning jewellery accessories that completed her look perfectly.
