When I chatted to Tracey Pegg of One Stop Wedding Shop about a photo essay covering some of what she does for her brides, I was thrilled when she said I had permission to take my camera in to the Mark Lesley bridal show.
As part of her commitment to the brides that visit Tracey at One Stop wedding Shop, she likes to ensure she has seen the season’s new wedding dresses that are gracing the catwalks. Twice a year, in her role as buyer, Tracey heads off to the National bridal exhibitions at either Harrogate, or London. I was lucky enough to be invited along this month to see the new designs from Mark Lesley.
The designs and details of the dresses at the Mark Lesley show were exquisite and I can see why they have won Bridal Manufacturer of the Year before now. The new trends were evident and all on beautiful display. Everything from tea length dresses, to buttons and capes and lace everywhere. Even adding a gorgeous adorned belt to a dress makes a difference in styling.
It was great to see Tracey and Lucy at work and how they go about choosing the right pieces for their wedding boutique. The team at Mark Lesley and Donna Solado were wonderfully hospitable in letting me in with my camera and I am looking forward to seeing their dresses at weddings throughout the next few years.
