  • Danny Jones McBusted Wedding


    McBusted front man Danny Jones is known for his lively performances on stage, but at his wedding to former Miss England Georgia Horsley, he showed his softer side as he was overcome with emotion.

    The singer couldn't help but cry from the moment he saw stunning model Georgia walk up the aisle in a gorgeous lace Stephanie Allin gown. Danny's Mum wears a John Charles London full length silk chiffon dress with elegant lace sleeves and a Nigel Rayment Couture Hat To see the latest Mother of the Groom dresses please see our feature in Hello Magazine by following this link

  • Rebecca Adlington Harry Needs Wedding


    “The ceremony was so personal, which was exactly what we wanted,” revealed Rebecca of their big day on 31 August which took place at an idyllic rural wedding venue The Ashes set amid 50 acres of Staffordshire countryside.

    Of the ceremony for which they wrote their own vows, she said: “I love the fact Harry was in bits before I even reached him. I was a bit nervous in the car on the way here with my dad, but as soon as I walked in, my nerves melted and I relaxed. The room was just so full of love.”

    Posing in her stunning gown for photographs with her family and friends, Rebecca’s svelte figure was shown to perfection. “I lost nearly two stone in the jungle [on ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here’] and perhaps another four or five pounds since then,” she said. “So it was a great kick start, and I feel better for it, but I don’t like it when people assume you’re really happy because you’re thin.” Of her confidence and happiness in her life today, she told HELLO! “I’m not suddenly confident because I have lost weight, I’m happy because I’m marrying the love of my life.”
    "I compliment her every single day, because to me she is the most beautiful woman in the world," added Harry. The Nigel Rayment Boutiques in London & Manchester are so proud to have dressed Rebecca’s mum in a John Charles lace dress with silk jacket style 25688 in coral-ivory with a matching Nigel Rayment Couture hat trimmed with the silk fabric from the jacket making it perfectly compliment this stunning Mother Of The Bride Outfit. It was a honour to also dress Harry’s mum in a Condici style 70800N fine crepe dress and jacket in cream an navy again with a matching Nigel Rayment Couture hat trimmed with the fabric from the outfit making Harry mum a stunning Mother Of The Groom.

There’s plenty in the way of accessories too, like jewelled headpieces Beauty With a full programme of demos and experts ready to administer tips at the Wedding Theatre, come armed with tear sheets or screen grabs from the ELLE beauty pages and see if your favourite hair and make-up trends can crossover to bridal.

  • Weddings Abroad Occasion Wear Dresses


    Some couples are opting for destination weddings; which brings about the inevitable question: "As a mother, what should I wear?" What to Wear Obviously, a wedding in a church or hotel will be quite different than a wedding on a beach in Cyprus. While the venue should obviously be taken into consideration, the most telling indicator is that of what the wedding party will be wearing. If the wedding is on a beach and the men are wearing tuxedos, a mother should obviously be dressed more formally. If however, the wedding is on a beach and the guys are in shorts and flips-flops, then it's up to the mother to find the degree of formality (somewhere between what the bride is wearing and what the rest of the wedding party is wearing) that suits her style and sensibilities. We are here to help mothers select a dress or outfit that honours their status at the wedding and will also photograph well next to the bride. Colours and Fabrics If the destination is in a warm or tropical location, consideration must be given to the weight of the fabric. Most mothers tend to be very warm-natured. A bulky, stiff, structured outfit will not only be uncomfortable to wear, it will look out of place. The location of the wedding will also affect the colours mothers should wear.Tropical venues naturally lend themselves to lighter, colour such a duck egg blue, hibiscus, blush, silver, as well as some stunning beaded lace pieces from Ronald Joyce Veni Infantino and chiffon from the Gina Bacconi occasion wear collection. This would hold true for weddings in vineyards and botanical gardens as well. Something to keep in mind is that certain fabrics pack better than others a perfect dress to travel is Irresistible by Veromia. We always recommend packing a good hand steamer to touch up the wedding party's attire as well as the mothers' dresses before the ceremony. It's a great investment as it can be used at home after the wedding.

  • Buying your outfit wedding outfit


    When should I buy my Outfit?

    Buying your outfit doesn't need to be a stressful experience and we want to make sure you have all the information to hand to make the right choice. Starting at the beginning of the year will allow you a greater selection as we receive one main delivery per year starting the Jan and our full selection will be delivered by mid February. We only work with exclusive brands that you can’t buy on the high street so there is no risk that a guest will arrive in the same outfit as we only buy one in each size 6-24 we buy 6 months in advance and once the size has gone it can never be replaced as the collection is designed using very limited fabrics. Please feel free to come along anytime to trying and hopefully find you’re once in a life time outfit that will make your daughter or son feel proud you on the big day. We have travelled Europe for next season and we are offering the following brands for 2016 Condici, Ian Stuart, John Charles, Carla Ruiz, Ronald Joyce-Veni Infantino, Paule Vasseur, Irresistible, Luis Civit all with matching hats that are dyed to match the outfits and can’t be found at any other retailer in the UK. We are also pleased to bring you leather shoes and bags from Linea Raffaelli and Elegante plus Rainbow Club a collection of shoes and bags that are dyed to match any outfit we really are the one stop wedding occasion wear shop. We pride ourselves on our customer experience please look at our feedback it’s from real mums that pour there hearts out about the experience that they have received we are approachable down to earth and you don’t need an appointment and from Jan-Aug we are open 7 days a week and 6 days the rest of the year. We fully understand that this is the biggest day of your life to let your daughter or son leave the family home to start their new life so we are on hand to help you look stunning just remember there is an outfit for every body size and shape. Many mums come along and say help I’m a 14 top and a 12 bottom that’s why Cathy in London and Kate in Manchester are on hand to perfectly shape the outfit to your own body shape with cutting edge alterations for the perfect fit. With so many new wedding venues opening their doors over the last five or so years, it means that many weddings are now held in one venue so the trip from a cold church to the reception is not as common as it used to be. Consequently the fabrics aren't as heavy as they used to be and can be worn 12 months a year. This means that shopping for your outfit is less season driven and you can now shop throughout the year for your outfit. The Nigel Rayment Boutiques in London and Manchester always have a great selection of outfits available in a range of colours to suit most wedding themes and venues.

What mums said about us …

I'd just like to thank your staff for all of their help yesterday. I get married in August 2015 and for months my Mum and I have forwarded pictures to each other of Mother of Bride outfits!! We were on a trip to visit my brother and decided to pop into the boutique! Mum described her favourite outfit to one of the lovely ladies, who whipped her downstairs, selected a John Charles outfit and mum tried it on. She looks perfect in it! It's like it was made for her. Thank you so much to the 2 fabulous ladies who helped us. They were so professional and know so much about the products they are selling.
