Date for the diary…

Today we had a lovely wander to Beech Road in Chorlton (South Manchester for you non-locals), such a beautiful area.  We were off to see our friend Melanie James Bridal – an exquisite bridal shop which makes us gape in awe whenever we enter.  If you are still looking for your wedding dress and are yet to find the ‘one’ we would heartily recommend Melanie.  This talented lady currently designs all her range and hand-makes them with a small team of talented seamstresses (including her lovely Mum!).  Don’t be put off if you are not a bride-to-be- however as she also does a fine line in party dresses, handbags, accessories and the cutest little dresses for little girls – at really good prices for what are essentially unique pieces.

Our mission today was to talk about the event that Melanie is currently organising on the 7th December where she will welcome her first designer into her boutique – the fabulous Eliza Jane Howell, who also designs and manufactures in the UK (fairly rare in bridal dress attire apparently).  With our love of all things handmade, British and of course gorgeous we totally approve.  We are honoured to have been asked to help style the boutique window for the day – more about this event later but do make a note of the 7th December, 11am until 3pm at Melanie James Bridal, 109 Beech Road, Chorlton.  There will be a whole host of suppliers there with a vintage feel – cars, stationery, flowers, decorations, details, accessories, favours and a string quartet to boot.  We can’t wait!  Here’s a taster of Melanie’s boutique…MelanieJBEventDec13_0010

Hello and welcome once again – it’s been a wee while since our last confession, sorry blog.  The wedding season took hold and we’re only just coming up for air….!  We’ve loads to update you on – the beautiful weddings we’ve been so thrilled to be part of this Summer, our new hire packages that we are about to launch (loads more pottery for your pence peeps…), exciting developments in our handmade wedding favour range and a little bit of help on the Christmas shopping front too – ooh plus we’ve got a new newsletter about to come out to all those that have put their names down via the website (drop me a line at info@pebble-in-the-pond.co.uk if you’d like a copy).  So do keep your eyes peeled.  For now, I’m off to make some nice hot soup for lunch – served in a china teacup of course xx
