Lucy - festival bride
I knew I wanted a relaxed, boho, festival wedding. I'd found the location, organised the tipis and had 15 bridesmaids/flower girls to buy for! They ranged from toddlers to adult bridesmaids. When thinking about my dress I knew exactly what suited me but otherwise, I was clueless on where to start.
Sophie Ellen listened to the style of wedding I was having including what flowers, table decorations and ambience I wanted, an then created an amazing style guide for me. This included colour moodboards which helped me find my direction and vision. I then has personal stylist support during my bridal dress appointments which were all organised for me - we had so much fun! I knew I'd found the right dress for me in a smaller boutique as soon as I tried art on. It was a vintage lace Charlotte Balbier, and it was perfect!
Next came the dresses for the 15 bridesmaids. From my style guide mood boards, Sophie and I decided blush was the best option, with each bridesmaid in a different style dress to suit their body shape. Sophie Ellen did all the research for me and came back with a range of fantastic dress options and stockists. We found perfect dresses for everyone, including the flower girls who ended up with mini versions of mine.
I believe, without the professional styling advice from Sophie Ellen that I would have been incredibly flustered and worried about the entire process. My wedding was exactly how I pictured it to be and the whole bridal party look beautiful. it was a dream come true. I can't thank Sophie Ellen Style enough. They brought the vision of my wedding day alive and ensured I enjoyed the whole style process with the least amount of stress.
Emiliana - ibiza bride
My husband and I eloped, just the two of us, but we always knew we wanted to have a big party and celebrate with our closest friends. Ibiza was the obvious choice for us! As soon as the villa venue and date were confirmed, I quickly got Sophie Ellen on the case for looking for our boho inspired outfits. We chose to have the blessing in there grounds of a beautiful villa, so we wanted a casual vibe. Relaxed, comfortable but whimsically pretty was what we asked for and thats exactly what Sophie gave us.
We didn't have a big budget, so Sophie had a challenge on her hands. But just by seeing photos of the venue and listening to what was happening on the day, Sophie Ellen was able to visualise what would look perfect against our dream Ibizan backdrop. We were given an number of options to choose from, and after a few consultations we found the perfect combination of outfits for us and the bridesmaids/groomsmen.
We would recommend Sophie Ellen Style to anyone who has a wedding theme in mind and wants the perfect outfits to match the backdrop of your dream day.
Kate – english country Barn Bride
Sophie Ellen were really instrumental in making my wedding day as perfect as it was and was exactly the sort of stylist every bride should have!
I knew I would need guidance about the style and fit of my dress as I am fairly body conscious, so Sophie accompanied me on my first visits to bridal shops. Having a stylist there to support me made me feel so comfortable (especially when some bridal boutiques didn’t make me feel that way!) and her genuine love for all things weddings was clear from the start! During these visits, Sophie helped me to pick out dresses that she knew would suit my body shape and she was really considerate of the things I wanted in a dress (straps being the most important!).
In one of the bridal boutiques Sophie suggested I try a dress on that was in the window on a mannequin (at the time it reminded me of Andy Murray’s wife’s dress!). When I tried it on I had ‘the moment’ – tears, shrieks, clapping, the works! She had found MY dress! It was Phyllis by Maggie Sottero and I still love the dress every bit as much now as I did two years ago!
Sophie was also a fantastic help when it came to my bridesmaid dresses. She provided extensive research using the colour scheme and budget requirements. It saved me so much time as I was a full time working mum, it really took some pressure off me.
I couldn’t recommend Sophie Ellen enough, she is the most organised person I know and above all she has a total passion for this.
