New Year New Look New Website

Well what can I say, the last 8 years have been a roller coaster of many many ups and luckily very few downs, our brand which we started back in 2005 in our kitchen has moved in so many directions, but for the last 6 years we’ve been firmly in the wedding arena and I love it. Meeting the brides to be, their mums and friends, working closely with them, experiencing their wedding through their eyes, and on their wedding day even steadying their nerves. Every wedding has been as individual and as special as they are.

My main aim has always been to try and make each bride feel as comfortable as possible, a home from home, so they aren’t scared to ask for what they truly want, we laugh, we cry when everyone gets emotional as the final dress is being tried on, and we always have a good supply of tea for everyone.

Our brides have travelled far and wide and from places including Scotland, Cornwall, Devon, London and even from France for us to make them their dream dress, we are still in contact with many of them who  keep in touch by email, facebook and now I’ve ventured into the twittersphere hopefully through that too. They come back for retro/burlesque outfits from our sister site and sometimes just for a catch up and a cup of tea, and some (helen you know who you are) even bring homemade cakes.

So its a New Year and a new Angels Carrying Savage Weapons, our new site reflects everything about us, we are eclectic, quirky and a little unusual, although not too scary that we frighten anyone off  I’m inspired by so many things that I couldn’t just stick to one thing, so we have created a website which should make finding what you want much easier, there is plenty of eye candy not only from our own galleries but from a selection of our brides. We are developing our range of personalised bridal lingerie and wedding gifts which really took off at the NEC wedding show last October and will be showcasing more delights as we get them photographed.

We have booked some exciting new shows this year which we haven’t shown on before and will hopefully get the Angels bridal range known by more bridal followers.

I hope you enjoy having a browse around the new site and if there is something you want and you cant find it, let me know as we love nothing better than tackling a new project.

Enjoy your wander through our new home
