Kirsty’s bridal style is truly all about winter sparkle, she opted to wear Pippa by Jenny Packham, a dress that has a soft floaty a-line skirt and an intricately embroidered top with silver beading.

She tells us more about her dress and how she discovered it at The Pantiles Bride:

“I wanted a dress that would cover my chest as I often get an emotional flush. I also wanted something that would WOW at a winter wedding. My dress was glimmering on the rack and it immediately stood out. The detailing and the simplicity was stunning. It felt very comfortable and natural on with no corseting or restriction to my movement, which was key for me. With a single zip it felt like Cinderella’s slipper, the perfect fit.

I tried on every style of dress as people said ‘you never know you might fall in love with a style you never thought you would like’ but this dress just ticked every single box. My husband to be is like a magpie to a shiny item. Therefore, I knew he would adore the hand sewn beading and the candle light and fairy lights reflected the light in the most romantic way.

I grew up in Tunbridge Wells and passed the bridal boutique for years with my mum. I was always excited for the day I would finally be able to go in and try on all the beautiful dresses. It really didn’t disappoint me!! The Pantiles Bride is extremely elegant and sophisticated and positioned in the historic part of the town. The dresses displayed in the windows are guaranteed to catch your eye and make you peak through the window. The team were amazing and so welcoming and excited for me.

Their breadth of experience was evident and the selection of dresses plentiful. My mum and I went to the boutique and we explained what I was looking for, between the three of us we had a short list of about 6 dresses. As soon as I tried on my dress everyone just knew and felt that it was the one. Everyone at The pantiles Bride made me feel very special and welcome. It was a dream come true to buy my dress from a shop I had always aspired to shop in one day. I had no issues and the process was seamless and stress free.”
