VIP Exclusive Bridal Fashion Show featuring House of Mooshki at Kathryn S Trueman Bridal Boutique Morpeth – 8th September

Are you still looking for inspiration for your bridal gown?

To celebrate the launch of the Mooshki Spring/Summer 2013 collection newly into boutiques we will be attending a grand VIP Bridal Fashion Show hosted by the fabulous Kathryn S Trueman Bridal Boutique in Morpeth to celebrate their new store opening.

Having been extremely successful over the past 3 years, Kathryn Trueman needed to expand her premises to offer brides a unique boutique experience and to have space to stock more fabulous gowns from some of the best designers around.

We will be showing the 2013 Summer collection and there will not only be the chance to see these gowns but also to meet with our rather gorgeous designer Olivia who you all may know from our website as she is also our model. You can arrange to book an appointment with her after the show to discuss your gown in more detail and maybe make amendments to make the dress truly your own.

Curtain Dress kafuffle … real bride story by Zara pink shoes !

This is her wedding dress journey !...

“So there I was, beginning to think about my wedding dress. I won’t pretend it was the first time. I’m sure every woman pictures how her dress will look even from being a little girl, doodling pictures of it on scrap bits of paper… (That wasn’t just me right?)

Only problem was, whenever I ‘doodled’ my dress it was always on a lady with a waist the size of a darning needle which my waist certainly is not.

I visited bridal shop after bridal shop and with each one came the same disappointing feeling. A choice of about five plus size dresses, all the same design but some with more bling than others.

I became more and more frustrated at the thought of just having to settle for a frock that quite frankly looked like someone had wrapped a bonny satin curtain around me.

Real Bride Stories – Laura Docherty and her mum

Wedding News – Real Bride Stories…… Laura Docherty and her mum.
What a treat we have in store for our fabulous readers today. This months newsletter comes from one of our real brides who was married recently.

Laura is a dream bride for any company to work with and was an utter pleasure from start to finish. We are honoured to be able to bring you these fabulous shots of her recent summer wedding here in the North East. Her big day was planned down to perfection and was hosted at As You Like It in Newcastle. – a quirky restaurant that suits Laura’s personality down to a tee.

The photographs are courtesy of Helen Russell Photography and I am sure we will be seeing more from Helen…(who is on her own honeymoon at the moment).

Enjoy and just think….THIS WILL BE  YOU VERY SOON !


Laura’s story…..
‘I’d been wedding dress shopping a few times and nothing was standing out to me. I knew I didn’t want a long dress but there seemed to be nothing else available or nothing right for me in the shops.

It wasn’t until I went to meet my photographer Helen Russell, that I saw the dress I had had been dreaming of. She had recently been involved in a photo shoot for Mooshki and had a picture of their designer Olivia wearing the signature Ostrich feather dress.

This was my dress !!! …. It was the perfect length and the feathers and underskirt made it exactly the style I’d been searching for.

She told me that it was by a company who made bespoke dresses and my heart sank as I thought there was no way that I could get a bespoke dress with my budget, but when she told me the prices started at £800 so I thought I’d get in touch.

I emailed Vikki and she was in touch straight away with an appointment for me to go for a consultation and the kind of things she’d want to talk about. I got a few images from magazines and the internet of dresses I liked and went along.

We talked for ages about what I wanted-I literally could have had anything. Olivia would draw the sketches based on Vikki’s notes and the dream dress would be mine. I loved the Ostrich feather dress though and luckily Vikki had it hanging up-so I tried it on!

We decided to change a few details so it was more suited to my shape and the sketches were emailed to me in a few days. It was so easy. I got the perfect dress and it was less than I would pay in any shop!

I was so impressed with the service that I advised a friend of mine to give it a go. She has her wedding next year and I can’t wait to see what her dress looks like!

My Mam even decided to have her Mother of the Bride dress made. She wore the most stunning King Fisher Blue dress and got loads of compliments. Again, we’d been shopping for her and could find nothing that was right. She got a dress that fit her perfectly, was exactly what she wanted and was far less than anything she’d seen in a store.

When my dress arrived, Vikki and her Mum, Nana Mooshki went to every effort to make sure the finished item was perfect.

I loved wearing my dress on my wedding day….it was such a fun dress and fit in perfectly with my theme and the feel of the venue. I’m refusing to put it away ! ..-it’s still hanging up on display and I’m trying to think of a reason to wear it again!!

Love it!

Thanks Vikki and House of Mooshki xx

Great big huge hugs and kisses to Laura. We hope she and her new husband have the most fabulous life together. They certainly look like they had a whole heap of fun on their big day. Her mum also looked stunning in her Dupion Silk gown we made her. It fit her like a glove and she looked truely fabulous like all mother of the brides should be.
