Flourish by Victoria Percival Accessories

If you follow our instagram account you will know that we are obsessed with our new accessories! It has taken me a long while to find accessories that are modern and match the style of our dresses, but I have finally found them.

Victoria Percival is a hair and make-up artist based in London. She has worked hard to become the go to artist for the modern, fashion forward London bride. Starting her career in fashion design and styling, Victoria's unique eye for stunning pieces and keen sense of style has allowed her to create a fresh, new collection of bridal pieces to suit the fashion-forward, discerning bride.

"So many of my brides were asking me if I had any hair accessories for them to try on during their pre-wedding day trial, that it became obvious my service should expand to styling and accessories services for the bride's journey. With such busy lives, my brides were finding the whole process of searching for their accessories overwhelming and confusing. Not only that, but what was on offer online wasn't capturing their imaginations or making them feel like they were making a statement".

She has created a gorgeous collection which is being loved by brides and designers alike. Victoria’s accessories are stocked in the most sought-after boutiques and recently worked with the acclaimed bridal designers Berta on the release of their new dress collection.

This week at MiliMili Bridal

Hello lovely readers,

Apologies I have been terrible at keeping the blog up to date.  Its been super busy and if I am being honest I sometimes do not what to write about! So, I thought why don't I do weekly updates of whats happened in the boutique.  That keeps you guys in the loop of the latest events, dresses and news.  I can then do specific blogs along the way covering anything else you would like me to cover. 

So lets get started with the updates from the week just gone!  

On Friday we announced the start of our end of Summer Sample Sale.  This is where we sell off some of the samples in the shop to make room for the new dresses coming in.  This is a fantastic opportunity to get one of our designer dresses at a reduced price.  If you also don't have much time to your wedding date this is perfect as the dress is here ready to go.  Here are a couple of the dresses available but we have over 30 styles available.

Iyasha & Michael

Welcome to our first blog on our brides weddings.  I wanted to do these blogs so I could show off our amazing brides and also to give brides to be some inspiration for their own specials days. I hope you enjoy reading them and looking at all the beautiful pictures.

For our first blog, we have Iyasha and Michael.  When Iyasha first came into the boutique I instantly knew she was going to be a MiliMili Bride.  She is class and sophistication personified and you could see she knew a thing or two about fashion.  

Iyasha tried on a few different styles but when she put on Hanoi by Blue Enzoani she knew this was her dress.  She looked absolutely stunning and it showed off her figure amazingly even though the sample dress was 3 sizes too big for her.  My pin skills were tested that day! I always say if you love a dress when it doesn't fit you then you know you will love it even more when it does and Iyasha did just that. I'm sure you will agree she looked fabulous. 

The wedding was on 7th November 2015 and the venue was Hintlesham Hall.  If you haven't already booked a venue I would highly recommend a look at this venue, it is a very impressive setting for a wedding. 

Iyasha and Michael's photographer for the day was D&A photography so quick shout out to him for the beautiful pictures. 

I'm not being biased when I say Iyasha is a naturally stunning girl.  So her natural hair and make up really complimented her look.  Her make up artist for the day was Victoria Jones and her hairstylist was Kim Wade. 

You may recognise Michael if you have been buying a house recently.  He is the Michael of "Michael's" Estate Agents in Colchester which I have to say is a very trendy and modern looking Estate Agents! 

Iyasha wanted to ensure that her Indian heritage was brought into the wedding, so she had the most brilliant idea of putting her bridesmaids into saree's.  I was lucky enough to see the saree's up close as she brought one into the boutique when she came in for a fitting and the detail was absolutely exquisite on them.  The dusky pink colour went perfectly with her flowers. 

Her flowers were by Interior Floral Design and I think you will agree that they did a fantastic job. 

Iyasha accessorised her dress with a Cathedral veil from Charlotte Balbier which has a beaded detail on the comb.  She also wore a back necklace from Chez Bec. 

Congratulations Iyasha and Michael!  Thank you for sharing your beautiful day with us xx
