Octobers Bride of the month!

This month, we have our beautiful bride Vicky, who got married abroad this Summer!

Here is a little bit about what Vicky had to say about her time in the shop, and some amazing images from the big day!

“I absolutely loved picking my wedding dress. Cheadle bride was the first shop I went to after it was recommended by a friend. The first dress that I tried on was an Alfred Angelo which I fell in love with but unfortunately the company had just gone into administration.

I tried several more shops and dresses but that was still my favourite. Then a couple of months later when I was running past the shop I saw another very similar one by Cara Bella. I tried it on and loved it and it was a great price. Also Ellie also sorted the alterations which really helped having it all done at one place.

Catrin, Gwen and Ellie made the whole experience so special and the shop sells such beautiful dresses. For any brides to be I would definitely recommend a visit to Cheadle Bride.

Thanks again,

Vic xx”



Congratulations Vicky! You looked absolutely incredible on your big day, and we will miss seeing you in the shop!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Bride Of The Month - September

Our wonderful bride of the month for September is the beautiful Danielle. Glowing in her Diane Harbridge dress she has kindly shared her experience with us and the big day itself! We wish Danielle and her new Husband love and luck for their future together from all at C.B xxx



"My time at Cheadle Bride was amazing. It was the first and only bridal shop I attended. The staff were so welcoming right from the start. 

Even though I had in my head the exact dress I wanted, and that was all I wanted to look for, the staff at Cheadle Bride wanted me to try a selection of different styles on just incase I liked a different style once it was on me. I was torn between two and they were so patient and put them to one side for me and let me go away and think about my decision. 

When I finally chose my dream dress they recommended a lady to do my alterations. Once my dress was altered it was taken back to Cheadle Bride where they steamed it and had it ready for me. 


With two days to go, The dress was steamed and ready and I went in to try it on once steamed. It needed tightening a bit more around my back, without hesitation the staff at Cheadle Bride told me not to worry they will sort it that day. It was ready that evening! So panic over the wedding was going ahead in two days and my dream dress was sorted! They were so helpful and so friendly and I couldnt recommend them enough!


My wedding day was perfect from start to finish. I had so many compliments on my dress and how perfect the fitting was. So many people mentioned how elegant and classy my dress was!"

Thank you once again to the wonderful staff at Cheadle Bride! Your amazing at what you do! 





Essense of Australia Trunk Show!

We will be having an Essense of Australia Trunk Show, on the weekend of the 22nd September!

At Trunk shows, our designers send us samples of their newest collections, so if you like a designer in particular, a trunk show is a great opportunity for you to try on as many different dresses by that designer as you can. 

Many shops have open days when they have trunk shows, however we still keep our appointments as appointment only- this way we can give each of our brides 100% of our attention and ensure that they get as much information as they can during this special time. So if you are interested in Essense of Australia, then this would be a perfect time for you to book an appointment with us, here at Cheadle Bride.

Summer Photoshoot

We recently worked with the wonderful Epps Photography, Hair Haus, and Amy Ellen Makeup, on a photoshoot in rural Cheshire, with our beautiful model Claire. 



We all had decided, on a relaxed, boho feel for this photoshoot, and so we took along our new Enzoani dress "Chloe". A stunning slinky gown, with soft ivory lace and embroidery, on a nude lining. 



We LOVE the greens, oranges and yellows in these images, and how our beautiful bride stands out in her gorgeous dress, in this idyllic setting. 


We will be sharing lots more images over the next few weeks, on our blog and social media of this amazing Photoshoot!

Thanks again to the wonderfully talented people who made this photoshoot happen!

Flower girls!

We have some new arrivals on our Flower Girls rail! Such gorgeous little gowns for our mini me's on our big days!

Traditionally, the flower girl is meant to wear ivory or white to match the bride on her wedding day. Did you know that this age old traditional, started in Roman times, when upper class Romans (and Greeks for that matter), used a Flower girl, scattering grains and herbs at the front of the wedding procession, to symbolise fertility. Skipping forwards to the Elizabethan era, the young Flower Girls also symbolised hope and innocence!

Now in the 21st century, Flower Girls still feature at most weddings, but mainly because they are absolutely adorable!! And well- who wouldn't want a gorgeous little one scattering petals down the isle on their big day!? These days, alot of our brides still stick to tradition, and go for an ivory or white gown for the little ones, but maybe with a splash of colour on the sash to match the Bridesmaids, or bouquets. You can however, order some of our Emma Bridals Flower Girl dresses, to match the bridesmaids dress entirely, from the exact same swatches.  


Here are just a few examples of our beautiful selection ...


If you are in need of a dress for you little Flower Girl, get in touch and book an appointment with us, so we can show you our stock, and help you pick the perfect dress!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Bride of the Month- July

Our bride of the month for July, is Helen!

Helen got our dress from us, a beautiful princess style gown by Enzoani, for her wedding abroad this May.

Here is what Helen had to say about her time in the shop with us, and some stunning photos of her on her big day!


"I found my dream dress all thanks to the lovely staff at Cheadle Bride. It was absolutely amazing and they made sure every detail was just perfect for our big day! 

The staff are so patient and not pushy and want to ensure that you get your dream dress and enjoy the experience . At Cheadle Bride they go above and beyond to help in every way, from finding the matching accessories and even the most beautiful box to transport my dress abroad, so that it stayed neat and well protected 

The aftercare is also so attentive, by even offering to fold away my dress so that it’s stored correctly !

I highly recommend Cheadle Bride and loved sharing my whole experience with them, which made my day as amazing as it should be! "


Helen, you looked breathtaking on your big day, thankyou so much for letting us be a part of it!  

We wish you lots of love and happiness in your marriage!


Lots of love, Team CB xx



Choosing the right colour wedding dress for you..

When you think of a wedding dress, do you think white? maybe ivory? or how about some different blushes and champagne tones?

These days there are lots of different colours to choose from, to wear on your special day that can still tie in with a traditional bridal look. At Cheadle Bride, we get a lot of brides telling us that they're looking for a traditional white wedding dress, when in actual fact they mean ivory! White isn't as popular as it once was, as it tends to make a lot of people look washed out, and so we look for slightly warmer tones to compliment our complexion. A lot of these brides then go on to buy a dress completely different than what they set out for, maybe its a mocha, or a sand colour! This weeks blog post is a guide of how to choose a colour that best matches your skin tone, to make you shine on your special day. Please note however, that everyone is different, and there are always some exceptions!!

If you have, fair skin..

If you have fair skin, maybe some freckles, and a pale complexion, the "rule" would be to stay away from white dresses. A fair skinned bride will usually suit a traditional warm ivory gown, which will compliment her skin tone.

Below is "Kathy" by Enzoani, a stunning example of an ivory wedding dress.

BT18-30 - Kathy (1).jpg

Medium shades...

Do you tan easy, without getting burnt? Maybe suit a peach based makeup, over a pink? Then you will suit colours with a creamier undertone. Dresses in Mocha and Champagne are the ones for you! Although, a warm ivory would look just as good with your beautiful complexion.

Here, we have chosen "Lily" by Enzoani, to show you just what kind of colour you could rock on your day!

BT17-01 - Lily Front.jpg

Medium shades, with pink undertones...

This would mean that you have a medium to light skin tone, and are still susceptible to burning a little in the summer sun! Again, you could definitely go for an Ivory gown, but we would also recommend various blushes, if you wanted something different.

Below is the beautiful, "Melbourne" by Essense of Australia, to represent this look..

Melbourne - D2453.jpg

Yellow undertones...

This is for anyone with an olive skin tone! You tan beautifully, and summer suits you ! You are one of the lucky few, that could wear a white dress on your big day! Champagne tones also look amazing on you.

"Peony" is one of our Champagne dresses, by Caro Bella.

Peony - Front.jpg

Dark skin...

Another one of the lucky ones, that look divine in a white wedding dress! But this is also one of the only skin tones that has their pick of the whole bunch, you really aren't at all limited to a certain palette!

We have added our new "Emilia" dress by Essense of Australia, to go with this skin tone, as it is an off white shade, as appose to ivory.

Emilia - D2475 (1).jpg




Whatever you choose to wear on your wedding day, its going to be right for you. And as long as your happy- that will shine through and you will look beautiful!

Essense of Australia's new Collection!

We are so excited to be finally receiving "Essense of Australia's" newest collection in the boutique, because this means we can share them with you!!


We love Essense through and through, and we love going to their launches because we can see all of their new designs on the Catwalk, and pick which ones we want to have in our shop. The only downside is that we can't share them with you straight away, our lovely brides!


Here are a few of their new gowns, which are now ready for you to try on in our shop!


Lots of new stunning lace designs, shapes, and fabrics! From bardot necklines to deep v necks, to soft sweethearts, they have it all! And this is a sneak peak at just 4 of them!


Stay tuned for more beautiful dresses to be added to the website, and posted all over our social media- because we are in love!

Styling a dress!

There are so many different accessories you can add to dresses, to make them unique!


We have grabbed one of our plain, satin, fishtail dresses from Badgley Mischka, "Ally-D", and styled it in a few different ways to show you just what we mean!


Two Bridal Looks!


Adding a simple lace piece to this dress, softens the shape and makes the dress seem that little bit more traditional. A lot of our brides do this to create two looks for their wedding day- a ceremony look and reception look! 


Some Extra Coverage


Our brides love the dramatic lines of this dress, but want some coverage- i.e. feel self conscious about their arms, or feel that they aren't 100% comfortable in a strapless dress. This Bardot style piece with three quarter sleeves provides the coverage, whilst also creating a flattering line across the chest. Teamed up with a little sparkly belt to show off the waist, and to tie the lace and satin together! We love this look!


Creating different shapes


Did you know that we can buy add-on skirts/ trains separate from some of our suppliers? Badgley Mischka themselves design different skirts as seperates, so you can change your dress's style/shape during the day. Here we have added a simple, tulle, A-line skirt to the fishtail silouhette, to create a boho look for the reception, which can be changed to the evening gown style in the evening- simply just by taking off the outer layer! 


Glam it up!


This dress is already a glamorous, highly sophisticated gown. Wearing the dress alone will still make you feel and look like you're about to step onto a red carpet! But what if you want that little bit extra on the big day? Here we have added a belt, diamond necklace and fur shrug, for a luxurious look. This also partially hides the dress, so you can have a big reveal at your reception when you change up your style again, removing the shrug!


This is just a few ways that a dress can be styled- its lots of fun transferring a brides personality into her dress, making it extra special for her, on her wedding day!


lots of love, Team CB xx

Bride of the Month- June

Its June! The sun is shining, and we have a beautiful new bride of the month!

The beautiful Natalie bought her dress from us last year, and she looked absolutely stunning on her wedding day in April! Heres a few photos from the big day, and a little bit about what she had to say about her time in the shop...



"There is something really special about Cheadle Bride. The moment I walked in I just knew that I’d find my dress in this lovely boutique. Gwen and Catrin are wonderful and they certainly know their stuff! Prior to my appointment I had told Gwen and Catrin that I really wanted a princess style Alfred Angelo dress but a few weeks before my appointment the dressmakers went out of business so my hopes of my Alfred Angelo dress were gone. However, Gwen and Catrin had made sure that they had sourced other designers that in my opinion made the most beautiful gowns I had ever seen.  So when they showed me a number of different dresses I couldn’t wait to try them on. Catrin and Gwen were so patient and provided a constant flow of tea and biscuits for myself, my sisters and my Mum! I never felt rushed or pressurised to buy as I had done in other bridal shops. Gwen and Catrin offered honest and great advice and had a wonderful eye for what would suit my physique and personality.  



I wanted lace on my dress but also a bit of sparkle so when Gwen presented me with a beautiful veil with a diamante trim, it was perfect and I knew that was the veil for me. I actually had three dresses that I loved but there was always one that I kept going back to. So I said yes to the dress and I bought it that day and never looked backed! I left the boutique in tears of happiness but with a special feeling that I’d met two wonderful people in Gwen and Catrin who I could always trust and count on for anything Wedding related and more! Six months later when I went to collect my dress we bought a beautiful flower girl dress for my niece and ordered lace flowers to match my wedding dress, which added a lovely personal touch. When the big day arrived in April, it rained the entire day but it didn’t matter as I felt like the princess bride I had always wanted to be. Cheadle Bride I have you to thank for that and you will always be apart of my special memories of the build up to my Wedding day."


Such beautiful photographs Natalie, we are glad you enjoyed you time with us here in the Boutique and that your beautiful Enzoani dress was such a success!!


Lots of love, Team CB xx

Festival Weddings!

Its sunny and that festival feel is in the air! The perfect time for all our boho brides! Recently we took our dresses to Wedfest, an event by Brides up North, where the venue was set up for a festival style wedding, with some amazing caterers, cake designers, florists, etc, and we absolutely loved it!

Are you an out doorsy couple? Want to be different ?

Have you thought about having your own mini festival for your wedding?  


This is the absolute perfect theme for a bride and groom who are laid back, into their music, or just love being around nature. But what wedding dress would we put with this?


How about Melbourne, from Essense of Australia? This A line gown has a low back, and 3d flower detail through out the skirt! The beautiful tulle fabric makes this dress really light, perfect for moving around on a warm Spring/Summers day!


Or is Alice from Enzoani more your style? With its fitted bodice, and soft tulle trumpet shape skirt, the crochet lace on this gown is made up of different flowers! Simply beautiful.

Meghan inspired wedding looks..

And the papers were wrong! Instead of Ralph and Russo, Meghan's dress was a beautiful Givenchy gown designed by Claire Waight Keller !! So plain and elegant, with a long veil embroidered with flowers to represent the 53 countries of the commonwealth , she looked like a true Princess when she married Prince Harry. And not to forget her tiara worn previously by Princess Anne! Her Stella McCartney dress for the reception was just as beautiful, a stylish halter neck with a fabulous train! 

And now Meghan has brought the plain, classic dresses back into focus, we have picked out our favourite, simple dresses in the shop! 

"Augusta" By Essense of Australia 

Augusta is a classic A-line dress, with a boat-neck/bateau neckline, and buttons the whole way down the train. This dress is made from a mikado fabric, which holds its structure perfectly, and the skirt has box pleats, creating the illusion of a smaller waist. We love this dress!


"Brandy-A" by Badgley Mischka 

This exquisite trumpet shape dress, is a satin, figure hugging gown, with vertical panels, which give the illusion of a smaller, more hourglass shape. The detail on the back, is a beautiful detachable organza flower, with an added train, which the dress can be worn with or without. A show stopper! 


"Daisy" By Enzoani

This delicate chiffon dress, has beautiful cap sleeves with pearl detail around the edges, neckline and waist. Looking almost like its stepped out of the 1920s, this amazing dress feels as soft and as lightweight as it looks, perfect for a summer wedding, Simply stunning! 

We hope you love these dresses as much as we do!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Meghans Bridal Designers

According to the Daily Mail, Ralph and Russo are the designers chosen to create the dress of the year! But who are Ralph and Russo?

Tamara Ralph, an Australian designer and seamstress met and fell in love with business man Michael Russo, and so formed the label "Ralph and Russo" in 2007. Designing garments from day dresses, to bridal couture, the couple now dress some of Hollywoods biggest stars and are known worldwide! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-17 at 12.54.33.png

Based in London, they have over 150 employers in their 6 story building, who bead and embellish all of their flamboyant designer gowns! Just a simple day dress can cost anything from around £50,000, and Meghan's is reported to cost around £100,000!

They are well known for their exaggerated shapes, and attention to detail in their work. Stunning dresses, with every little detail made to absolute perfection, before leaving their studio! 

Does this mean that Meghan is going to be seen in a heavily embellished, dramatic, wedding dress? We can't wait to see what these wonderful designers come up with for the big day!!


Lots of love, Team CB xx

Royal Wedding 2011

Now that we have an idea of what designer Meghan Markle has chosen to design her wedding dress (its looking like Ralph and Russo! Well known for their intricate beaded designs in bridal) , we thought we would have a look back at HRH The Duchess of Cambridge's  ceremonial gown and accessories on her big day! 

kate 3 (1).png

The dress

The dress was designed by Sarah Burton, designer from The House of Alexander McQueen. Sarah worked alongside the Royal School of Needlework, to ensure that even the tiniest of details were absolutely perfect.  The gown had the most beautiful chantilly lace sleeves, and a satin bodice overlayed with lace appliques. The appliques consisted of individual roses, thistles, daffodils and shamrocks! The skirt was made from a fine satin gazar, designed with arches around the skirt, to replicate an opening flower, and this was finished with a 9ft train- which is quite big to us, but nothing in comparison to Princess Diana's!! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-03 at 13.47.05.png

The shoes

The shoes, a beautiful ivory heel with the same embroidery used as on the dress, were also designed by Sarah Burton, made by Alexander McQueen!

Screen Shot 2018-05-03 at 13.45.02.png

Hair and Makeup

Kate famously did her own makeup for the big day, with her well recognised smokey kohl eyeliner, blush cheeks, and blush pink lipstick- very subtle and not too different from what she would wear normally- which is the perfect choice when it comes to bridal makeup! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-03 at 13.47.22.png

Her royal hairdresser at the time, James Pryce, designed her hair for the biggest day of 2011,  in a simple but classic, half up half down style, with soft curls. The soft curls were used to create a fairytale look, and it was all swept back to keep all of the details of the dress in view! 


The Bouquet

Shane Conolly designed the stunning bouquet, using aspects of royal tradition and sentiment. Hyacinth flowers where used to represent "love", Lily of the Valley for "happiness", Sweet William for "gallantry" and Myrtle for "love and marriage!".  A sprig of Myrtle is used in all the royal bouquets, and this particular sprig was picked from a tree planted by Queen Victoria! 


Screen Shot 2018-05-03 at 13.46.01.png

The time honoured tradition...

"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue."

Every bride knows of and has heard of this traditional rhyme! And most of the time, if not every time, a bride makes sure she has something of each, to bring her luck on her big day!

And this was no exception for the Duchess on her big day. Her something old and borrowed, was the Queens Cartier Halo Tiara, that she recieved on her 18th birthday! This beautifully understated tiara, was loaned to Kate for the day to complete her bridal look-and it looked amazing! 

Something new, was a gift of diamond earrings from her parents, designed using elements of their family crest!

And Something blue, was a tiny blue ribbon, stitched underneath the lining of her dress!



We cant wait to see how Meghan's bridal look, compares to Kate's timelessly elegant look!


Lots of love, Team CB xx



Royal Brides

Its May! The month of the Royal Wedding, where Meghan and Prince Harry will finally tie the knot at St Georges Chapel, surrounded by family, friends- and everyone else across the world who will be tuning in to witness the historic event!

In light of the Royal Wedding, we thought it would be exciting to look through a few Royal Brides from previous years, and look at their fashion choices on their big day! Who knows, it could inspire you, our future brides!

1. The Duchess of Cambridge

kate 2.png

The Duchess Catherine, wore a breath taking, A-line gown with Chantilly lace on the sleeves and bodice, designed by Sarah Burton.

2. Grace Kelly

The beautiful Grace Kelly, wore a stunning satin gown, with lace sleeves and covered buttons, designed by Helen Rose, her trusty costume designer who worked alongside her in films such as "High Society" and "The Swan"


3. Princess Diana


Diana's wonderfully on trend (at the time) Bridal gown, was designed by The Emanuels , husband and wife David and Elizabeth. With a stunning 25ft train, this dress is definitely one that can't be forgotten. 


4. Zara Phillips

zara phillips.png

Zaras classic wedding dress, a simply beautiful full-skirted silk faille and duchess satin gown, was designed by Stewart Parvin.


5. Pippa Middleton (we know she isn't really Royalty- but what a dress!)

We love a good bridal gown binge!
