We’re big fans of the whole getting ready thing. It’s such an important ritual of a wedding day so we say indulge!

Swanton Morley House & Gardens seem to agree with us too and created this gorgeous ‘Getting Ready’ inspiration piece with Caro London – creator of gorgeous loungewear perfect for a bride and her best girls.

Designer Caro has been evolving affordable timeless collections of loungewear and accessories using natural fibres since 2002. Designing easy, flattering and practical shapes in pure, soft cottons to wear for sleeping and lounging, often in her own beautiful prints.

If you think you and your Maids should be wafting through the morning of your wedding in something beautiful, then Caro London is offering 10% off the entire range until 30th September 2017 – please see the website for more details and quote CAROBRIDES10 when ordering.

Over to Swanton Morley to tell us more about this shoot…

It’s All About The Getting Ready!

Swanton Morley:

We were delighted to welcome Caro London to Swanton Morley House & Gardens last August for a rather special photoshoot to celebrate the launch of their new wedding range of beautiful kimono style robes.

We think that these robes and slips would make any bride and her bridal party feel extra special and are perfect to wear during the morning of the big day. They are also available in a range of luscious Caro London prints and with matching accessories and elegant gift boxes we think they would make very welcome and gorgeous gifts for bridesmaids, Mums and future Mother-in-Laws!

Today we’re talking lingerie… Something that both excites me and sends me into a panic.

Let me explain…

When it came to my own wedding day undergarments I got things a little bit wrong. I won’t go into ALL of the details but let’s just say I wish I’d given it all a little more consideration and actually ensured I was both comfortable and ummm, secure.

So, to ensure you pretties don’t make the same mistakes, we’ve got a cracking advice piece today thanks to Bridget-Clare O’Keeffe, the founder of Sapphire Pink – the bespoke bridal concierge service.

What’s this you might ask…?
