Want something in common with Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Lopez’s wedding day? Well now you can, as celeb bridal designer, Vera Wang brings her unique designer style to Kent this month through beautifully designed wedding flowers.
Katie Jane in Paddock Wood, is only one of a few Interflora florists across the UK to offer this bespoke designer service. Owner, Valerie Wiltshire told us “I feel very privileged to be able to offer this exquisite brand from my shop as Vera Wang represents a top of the range label that is recognised across the world.”
There’s three distinct looks created by the iconic designer, including Modern, Traditional and Romantic. Some of the new designs have been created by the designer herself, about which she said, “having experienced weddings from both a personal and professional perspective, I can truthfully say that no one is more dedicated to brides than I am.”
The Vera Wang Wedding Collection is also available to view at the Interflora Inspiration Gallery or pop down and see the team at Katie Jane for more info.
Off we went to the luxury wedding show this weekend which was held at the Saatchi Gallery on London’s Kings Road.
The venue was fabulous for a wedding show as it’s white walls and calming influence made the show feel serene and plush and not at all overwhelming. The suppliers were a really friendly and welcoming bunch and ready to help with an array of answers to any wedding question you could ask.
Tickets were £50 a pop (and then theres the train fare to factor in) but if you needed high-end inspiration you had come to the right place.
The ticket price included the all important goody bag (Opi Nail Polish, 3 Elemis Anti-Wrinkle Creams, Cleansing Oil, Gui Flapjack bar, 3 perfume samples and Pearl Drops toothpaste) and entrance into the catwalk show with complimentary glass of Pommery.
The catwalk show was one of the slickest we had seen all year with a great collection of dresses from Vera Wang, Vivienne Westwood, David Fielden, Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Temperley London, Delphine Manivet, Carolina Herrera, Peter Langner, Charlotte Casadejus, Luella’s Boudoir, Candy Anthony, Kula Tsurdiu, Angelina Colarusso and The State of Grace – we’d have dared you not to find your perfect dress amongst them!
Even if you don’t have a huge budget the show is perfect for taking inspiration from some of the biggest names in the wedding industry.
Our verdict? Save your money on other wedding show entrance fees and come here – you won’t be disappointed!
