As we enter into Spring we just wanted to share with you some winter warmers from a beautiful wedding from the Christmas holidays. The beautiful Leanne looked just perfect in her Stephanie Allin 'Darcy' gown. When Leanne first came to the boutique she knew she wanted something classy and extra special with a modern twist - I knew Stephanie Allin was the designer from her.
The beautiful Amanda wore Kristene by Claire Pettibone for her sunny autumn wedding at Christchurch Harbour Hotel last year. And doesn't she look beautiful?
As someone who has never been to New York, I constantly dream of the moment I'll jump in a yellow cab and take a walk through Central Park. So when Laura visited our boutique and told me she was getting married in New York I was thrilled, my styling self went into overdrive and I was immediately picturing her Sex in the City style day.
I love London weddings and St Paul's Cathedral is certainly as iconic as it gets. Amy came to Exquisite to search for her gown along mum, Gill, who lives in the New Forest. A true Claire Pettibone bride Amy chose to wear the Midnight dress.
An elegant country mansion and a ballgown by Caroline Castigliano - this wedding is every girls dream.

In fact, one of them, author Lewis Caroll is rumoured to have created his tales of a certain young Alice after hearing of her adventures in the enchanted walled garden, on the croquet lawn and under the giant beech tree. This beautiful setting set the scene for Emma and Neil's special day.
