Based in Southern California, it’s not often that we have the opportunity to cross paths with our friends from across the pond. It’s also extremely rare that the first ever one-stop shop for all things wedding related comes to fruition.
Walking down the stone steps beneath three iron arches, elegantly wrapped in lush greenery, an understated black door with a simple gold plate that reads “The Wedding Gallery”. Once inside, you find what looks like a library, filled with books. One touch of a button and one of the many bookcases opens into The Wedding Gallery.
In this luxurious space, there are over 200 bridal brands that will help the bride and groom find the perfect vendors for their big day. Everything from photographers, DJs, caterers, hair + makeup, lingerie, florists, rentals, cakes, stationery, cocktails, even speechwriters for those who find writing isn’t one of their strongest suits.
We don’t want to play favorites, but some of the brands that caught our eye were dress designers Charlie Brear, Halfpenny London, Oscar de La Renta (of course!), and Brides Do Good, who donate their proceeds from each sale to select charities! Florists, Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart and Rob Van Helden literally took our breath away with their stunning floral display. Cake extraordinaire Rosalind Miller, GC Couture and of course, Laduree had us drooling. We loved Holy Water’s bar display. We fell in love with stationery designs on display from Cutture and Lamplighter. Finally, if we could dress our men in Emma Willis’ garments and George Cleverley bespoke shoes, pleased would be an understatement.
Special thank you to Neil Kent from Something Blue PR for taking the time and giving us the opportunity to tour such a unique and monumental space!
