Glitzy Secrets ‘Twenties Heirloom Collection’
It couldn’t be better timing to introduce the new Glitzy Secrets ‘Twenties Heirloom Collection’ to you!
Not only were the talented team crowned as ‘Best Bridal Accessories Retailer’ at the ‘You & Your Wedding 2014 Bridal Retail Awards’ last week, but the sparkling new season creations from Glitzy Secrets tick all of the trend boxes when it comes to vintage styling.
If you’re a ‘Downtown Abbey’ fan, you might like to know that some of the latest Glitzy Secrets designs were worn by characters in the latest series, and if you’re enjoying the new episodes of ‘Mr Selfridge’, the beautifully bejewelled headpieces and hairbands, and the geometric Art Deco detail earrings and hairpins should also be right up your (Oxford!) Street.
When it comes to selecting your smalls for your wedding night, you’ll want to guarantee an unforgettable end to your perfect day with some lacy lingerie.
Many brides opt for shapewear under their wedding dress, giving them the perfect silhouette and ensuring there’s no VPL on display during their big day. Come bedtime pull out all the stops for your first night as husband and wife and switch your support pants for show-stopping suspenders – taking you from blushing bride to bridal suite ready.
For some brides this might be the most indulgent lingerie purchase you make, so ensure it’s a night to remember with a boudoir-beautiful bra or basque that you’ll want to wear again and again, and take away with you to heat up your heavenly honeymoon too.
These luxurious lingerie sets from Myla are contemporary and flirty whilst flawlessly flattering the female form. This underwear definitely deserves an outing! Enjoy more of this intimate range at online fashion favoruite Avenue 32 – ‘your online luxury shopping neighbourhood’.

Charlie & Jono ♥ Dubai, UAE
Photographer: BlueCicada Photography
If you’re going to do a trash the dress session, this is how it should be done! The warm waters of Dubai look so inviting, you can see why Charlie and Jono were keen to dive right in.
Charlie manages to look every bit the beautiful bride when she’s been climbing over oil slicked boats in the crazy temperatures of the Dubai summer and even after diving headfirst into the Arabian Sea!
Her gown looks just as gorgeous floating in the surf as it would have done on her wedding day, especially the twisted strap detailing on the back. **Dashing off to check out the designer of Charlie’s dress – Nicole Miller**
“In true Dubai-style, Jono proposed to me post-brunch, which means post-all-you-can-drink-champagne, so we weren’t in the best state! Luckily he’d been prepared for a couple of months with a ring that he’d had made to include a diamond that was in my Grandmother’s engagement ring – good boy! Not sure how him and my Mum managed to keep that one secret from nosy me though!”
“As soon as I told my friend Caroline (who is a photographer – BlueCicada Photography) that we were engaged, she immediately offered to do an engagement shoot for us.”
“We wanted our wedding to be as relaxed and inclusive as possible, so we got married in London, where we first met 4 years beforehand. Our mum’s did the flowers and everything was a family affair, from the favours to the artwork. We used one of Caroline’s engagement snaps for our order of service leaflet – everyone loved it.”
