Anybody that knows me, knows that I am quite possibly obsessed with anything & everything ‘vintage chic’! So when I met Sue, the owner of Bleu Bridal Gowns, at a wedding fayre in Chilworth and saw her display of wedding dresses with their intricate overlaid lace, classic ‘Audrey Hepburn’ styles and antique blush rose colours I was in love! It helped that Sue is the most loveliest person in the World! As we got talking Sue was telling me about her boutique in Shedfield, Southampton – which is a gorgeous little town in itself, where she rents a converted a barn (complete with hanging beams) to display her beautiful wedding dresses, and have brides come over for a personal appointment to find not just the ‘One’, but also to find a dress that flatters and is correctly fitted – something which I think is so, so important but is often neglected when overwhelmed by the occasion.
I wish I could live in Sue’s boutique! She has everything I want in my house, from a large Louis XV type mirror to ornate chairs decorated with pink damask fabric and vintage hearts hanging everywhere. Sue treats everyone who comes to her boutique like a Queen, she is so welcoming – even when we overtook her space with cameras, tripods and all manner of other equipment!
