We have fans far and wide, but in the United Kingdom we’re pretty certain that the staff at Blackburn Bridal in London are our most devout. And while the fact that they’re our top stockists in the UK certainly points to major fandom, it’s the fact that store owner Russell Blackburn will respond with “Claire Pettibone” without hesitation when asked who his favorite bridal designer is that has us crystal clear on the matter.
With a store as zealous about our brand as Blackburn Bridal, it’s not surprising that they’ll be hosting not one but two bridal trunk shows in London featuring each of our collections.
The bridal trunk show for the recently debuted California Dreamin’ Romantique collection will be held on September 30th through October 2nd.
From the Coachella gown, evoking infectious grooves and desert reveries, to the Pasadena gown, epitomizing old-world elegance, the collection offers a bevy of beguiling dresses for the boho bride.
The bridal trunk show for the Gilded Age Couture collection will be held on October 7th through the 9th.
From the rose silk velvet inlaid details on our Lillian wedding gown, harkening back to a time of exquisite artistry, to the Morgan gown, teeming with dazzling antique gold embroidery, the collection offers ethereal wedding dresses that allude to a dream world where beauty reigns.
When asked about the collections, Russell, a bridal style savant who recently appeared in the E4 mini-series “All Hail the Veil” and is often asked by leading bridal magazines such as Brides and You and Your Wedding to contribute his knowledge and expertise, said, “The collections represent a very feminine woman who has a bohemian style and spirit… We have brides visiting us from far and wide looking to become a 'Claire Pettibone' bride.”
On Saturdays and Sundays during the trunk shows the bubbly will flow and a 10% discount will be offered, as one-of-a-kind brides from all around peruse what we dare say are some of the best bridal offerings in London.
