Its time for our Bride of the Month! This cold December, we are taking a look at one of our summer brides to warm ourselves up, Amber ! The gorgeous Amber chose an Essense of Australia gown for her big day, and she looked stunning!

Here are some pictures from her big day, and a little bit of what she had to say about her time with us here at Cheadle Bride..


”The lovely ladies at Cheadle bride made my experience magical from the first meeting right up until the day before. It was great to have someone else on hand to offer opinions and make me try things I maybe wouldn’t have! ..


Nothing was ever too much trouble and I will be shouting about your shop from the rooftops! Thanks so much you took a very stressful part of wedding planning away and made it fun and enjoyable!”


Amber, what an absolutely beautiful bride you made!! We are so glad you shared your bridal gown experience with us here at Cheadle Bride, and wish you lots of love and luck for the future, with your new hubby!

Embracing Christmas at your Winter Wedding

A few of us here at Cheadle Bride, are without doubt, Christmas obsessed. So when we are planning our own weddings, we cant wait to incorporate the festivities into our special days!

We have been looking at a few classy ideas, to make sure that Christmas is a part of your day if you are planning on being a winter bride, without completely taking over!

Below are some place settings that we really love, from our Pinterest page!

How cute is the little tree!?

We love the idea of using elements of different kinds of Christmas tree, fir, spruce and pine, and adding it to bouquets and room furnishings! And of course, we couldn’t have Christmas without fairy lights twinkling about the place!

And of course, what kind of Bridal Boutique would we be, if we didn’t add some of our favourite dresses for the winter months!?

We just love satin and heavy lace at this time of year! Look at these beauties from Essense of Australia, and Enzoani.

Teamed up with a fur bolero, or shrug, these make the perfect winter bridal gowns, for a stunningly festive wedding !

Currently in the shop, the favourite colours to accompany our winter brides through bridesmaid dresses and flowers, are navy, burgundy, gold or black! What colour would you choose for your big day?

Until next time!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Winter Weddings!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Not only because it’s nearly Christmas, but because of all the magical winter weddings that are about to take place!

Summer / Spring weddings are filled with fresh flowers and bright colours, Autumnal weddings have the beautiful burnt oranges and reds scattered around, and Winter weddings mean sparkles and fairy lights!

This blog post consists of a few of our favourite things about Winter Weddings. Starting with Sparklers!!

With sparklers, you can be creative in your photography, or just use them as a bit of fun for you and the guests at the end of the night.

How about lighting up your Wedding reception with fairy lights and lanterns ? A stunning way to add warmth and a bit of sparkle to your big day!

And finally, did you know you can get environmentally friendly fake snow to replace confetti, for your winter wedding? Why not add a tiny bit of environmentally friendly glitter to flowers, place settings and table centre pieces, to create a winter wonderland feel, on your big day!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

November Bride of the month!

Its bride of the month time! Our stunning Bride, Jenny, sent us some images of her and her new husbands big day, and a little bit about her time with us, here at Cheadle Bride.

“My experience at Cheadle Bride was amazing right from the off- from my initial contact to arrange an appointment right up until I picked up my dress after steaming.

I’d been to another bridal boutique before visiting Cheadle Bride and had also had a good experience there, but it wasn’t anything like the personal, relaxed and friendly experience I had with Cheadle Bride.


I knew I wanted quite a simple dress. I didn’t want anything too heavy or too fussy as I’m not someone who wears dresses loads and I wanted to feel comfortable. We were having two wedding ceremony’s - a Hindu one and a civil ceremony and I wanted a dress for the civil ceremony that would look good next to colourful sarees.

I initially got in touch with Cheadle Bride because I had seen a beautiful dress on their website which was everything I thought that I wanted. However, at my initial appointment, I tried a few dresses on, including the one I had seen on the website. The dresses were all beautiful but I just felt that they weren’t really ‘me’ and the one I had seen online just didn’t feel how I thought it would. The assistant suggested having a look at the sample sale rail.

I tried one of the sample dresses on (even though I wasn't convinced it would suit me) and I was so surprised at how much I loved the lace. It was so different to the dress I originally thought I wanted though, so I didn’t want to commit straight away, but went back a few days later with my Mum and was so pleased that the dress was still there.


Catrin got us excited about the possibilities of adding a belt and taking it in a bit here and there, and whilst me and Mum were talking about the dress she brought out a tray of tea and biscuits. I didn’t realise at the time, but choosing your wedding dress is a really emotional commitment. Cheadle Bride is a really special place because they understand this. Catrin was really relaxed and friendly, and every member of staff I came into contact with was lovely, there was no pressure and no rush, just lots of good advice. I felt like we were with friends.

We took the dress away that day and had a few alterations made by a lady recommended by Cheadle Bride and brought it back to the shop to be steamed the week before the wedding.

We got married on a very snowy, wintry, blizzardy day and the dress was perfect thanks so much to everyone at Cheadle Bride x”

What beautiful photos of your special day!! Jenny, we wish you and your new hubby lots of luck and love for a bright future together! Thank you for choosing us to share a special memory with!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Accessories for Winter Brides!

Thinking of getting married in the Winter, but don’t want to be too exposed to the elements?

This week we are looking at different dresses, and accessories, to keep the frost off at your winter wedding! Now obviously this wont be for everyone, as a lot of brides don’t care if they’re cold once they’re in the perfect dress! I mean, we all saw Phoebe getting married in her sleeveless, corseted dress, in the snow on Friends!

So to kick off, we are starting with sleeves. Granted, lace sleeves aren’t actually that warm, but you could always opt for a Satin sleeve to match HRH’s Meghan and Eugenie!

Whether they’re added on to the dress during alterations with the seamstress, a separate bolero, or just part of your gown, sleeves are an obvious, classy choice for your big day! At any time of year!

Next up, we have our Fur (or faux fur) shrugs. Our brides love these shrugs, and we find, that they are usually chosen for a Christmas/ New year wedding. There are lots of different styles, from an off the shoulder wrap, to full sleeves!

Have you ever thought about wearing a Bridal Cape? Not as new as you’d think to the wedding industry, Bridal Capes can be bought with dresses, or separate from designers. These can be worn in place of a veil, or alongside. Again, not the warmest accessory, but they are stunning!

And if none of these are for you.. you can actually get Bridal Jumpers now! Now, i’m a fan of a good fluffy jumper.. but maybe this is that bit too casual for your wedding day!?

Until next time!

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.
