EASTWOOD PARK AND THE LAUNCH OF MAIDS TO MEASURE IN CHELTENHAM!

Last weekend the Willow and Lace team joined forces with Cocoa Couture at the beautiful Eastwood Park in Gloucestershire, to hold an exclusive catwalk event for over 60 guests.

Despite a rainy start, the sun shone whilst guests enjoyed a glass of prosecco and canapés, before making their way through to the Eastwood Park Terrace to view an array of couture gowns from Cocoa Couture. Willow and Lace supplied all the accessories including headpieces, crowns, bouquets and jewellery sets, which were styled to perfection by our team for each gown.

We were very excited to be launching and showing off a new collection of bridesmaid gowns from the very talented Maids to Measure, modeled by some of this years Miss Cheltenham Finalists.

The gowns went down a storm with lots of interest generated! A particular favorite of the guests was the gorgeous ‘Regent’ dress, which supports a low cut cowl on the back and skimmed the models silhouette in all the right places.

The dresses are a great combination of classic and contemporary making the gowns perfect for every type of maid! All the dresses from the collection comes in beautiful shades of pastels, as seen in the photograph by the talented Rebecca Northway. The gowns are also available in some richer tones to compliment maids who need stronger colouring.

What a perfect way to kick starts the launch such a stunning collection of bridesmaid gowns now available in our Cheltenham Boutique <3
