Themed wedding ideas...

Themed weddings are a big thing in America, and have been getting more and more popular in the UK !

From Harry Potter themed weddings, to a Midsummer Nights dream, they can be a great way to add a bit of fun to your wedding day. We have been looking at some of our favourite films in the shop, and seeing how we could use them as a theme for a wedding!

Starting with, the new favourite, The Greatest Showman!

Lots of bold colours and a carnival style theme would be used to create this look- lots of draped fabric and sparkle!! Maybe some red or gold bridesmaids??

Why not go all out with some ‘circus’ animals at the table- maybe even your guests would want to dress up to fit in with the theme of the day?!

And of course, we would need to top it all off with a dramatic gown! How about an satin A-line dress, like our Augusta from Essense of Australia? (can be seen on the Essense of Australia page, on this website!)

We think The Greatest Showman would be a wonderful theme for a wedding day! Stay tuned for more movie favourites over the next few weeks!!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Be my Valentine!

Happy Valentines day to all our Brides, and CONGRATULATIONS to all our newly weds and all our newly engaged couples! This Valentines day, we have filled our beautiful shop window with pink, red, lilac and peach roses, and this got us thinking, how would you design your Valentines day wedding? Would you go for the traditional red, hearts and roses, or change it up a little with some quirky colours and signage?

Of course, we turned to Pinterest and past brides, and had a look at some ideas that we really love for such a romantic time of year!

We love the different hues of pink in these images, a softer alternative to red, for the bride who wants to change it up a little for her February wedding!

And come on, who doesn’t love a cupcake or 5!?

But our favourite, is this kissing booth! A quirky alternative to the recent favourite, the photo booth! Where guests can dress up and have photos to take home, to remember the special day.

Lots of Love this Valentines day, Team CB xx

Bride of the month- February

Its bride of the month time! And this time, its the turn of our beautiful Rachael, who had purchased one of our Alfred Angelo gowns a year ago, for her big day!

Heres some photos of the lovely couple, and a bit about their time with us here in the shop.


“From the moment i walked into Cheadle Bride, i was made to feel welcome! I was anxious about trying on dresses, and wasn’t looking forward to the experience, however the team made me feel welcome, calm , and at ease.


From the day i walked in, and throughout my journey, Catrin and Gwen have been amazing. They have been there with support and advice, and i now see them as friends!”


Thank you for your lovely words Rachael! You and your lovely hubby will be missed in the shop, but we wish you all the luck, love and happiness for a wonderful life together!

We hope you enjoyed the blog post!

Love until next time,

Team CB xx

Golden Globes continued..

Following on from our blogpost last week, we have a couple more celebrities who have inspired some of our bridal looks for this season! Starting with…

Our beautiful Essense of Australia gown “Sasha” , and Camilla Belles stunning blue gown. Both of these amazing dresses show off the wearers shape with a drop waist cut, which enhances the hour glass figure and is in this case, is perfectly balanced with the soft v neck.

And last but not least, we have our fabulous bold lace dress “Connie” by Enzoani, up against Isla Fishers beautiful Monique Lhuillier lace gown. Two princess cut lace dresses, with strapless bodices and soft detail throughout. A perfectly classy princess dress!

We hope you have enjoyed these as much as we did!

Bride of the Month- January!

We are back after a lovely Christmas and New Year, with our first Bride of the Month 2019!

This is the lovely Cath, who found her stunning gown “Anna “ by Enzoani with us last year.

Here is a little bit of what Cath had to say about her time with us here at Cheadle Bride..

“Catrin and the team were just fantastic. From the moment I arrived in Cheadle Bride with my mum & sister we were made to feel so welcome! Catrin explained about how the shop was set up with different wedding dress designers and styles so I knew what I was looking at as I was going round. I had an open mind about what dress I’d choose so I got the fun part of trying so many different styles of dresses on! They were extremely patient and never made me feel like I was taking too much of their time up! It was a long elimination process with multiple try’s of various dresses but there was one I just kept going back to .... Beautiful by Enzoani - Anna (my crazy paving dress) which became The Dress!


From that moment they kept me updated with expected timescales of delivery and were always so happy to help. I had the most amazing, friendly but professional service from everyone at the shop! In fact after the dress and veil I kept going back.... nothing was too much for them and if I wanted a pair of shoes I’d seen on the web site, they ordered them in for me. I mentioned I was looking for a bag and they had the brochures out so I could see what there was! I wanted some shrugs for my sister (bridesmaid) and I and they found exactly what i was looking for! And then to top it all off we even found the most beautiful dress for my flower girl!


A couple of days before my big day they took my dress & veil and steamed all the creases out! Again so accommodating and helpful! I can’t recommend Cheadle Bride enough! They gave me the best experience at the start of my wedding journey and made it so enjoyable and stress free right through to the end! Thank you Cheadle Bride! You have been amazing! Apart from the fact that I’m very happy with my new husband... I’d do it all over again with Cheadle Bride!


What beautiful photos, you looked absolutely amazing Cath- and we are so happy that you picked us to be a part of your special day!

Love, luck and happiness for the future!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Bride of the Month- December

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!

Lots of love, Team CB xx
