I was recommended Morgan Davies in Islington by one of my great friends – I heard that they were absolutely amazing and its true they were. I had an appointment with Annalize, who had come highly recommended and she was fantastic. From the moment I arrived with my mum and maid of honour I felt completely relaxed. I loved the way that she knew all her dresses so well and could instantly see what would suit me (completely not what I had thought).
One of the things that I liked about Morgan Davies Bridal is that they stock numerous designers so you aren’t just limited to one designer, and in the same way the dresses vary in price so you will be likely to find something within your budget – from what I remember the dresses range in price from about £1300 upwards to £3000 (and then you pay for alterations -there are 3 packages and there is bound to be one that is right for you)
They stock dresses from a variety of top bridal designers including Alan Hannah, Rosa Clara, Suzanne Neville, Cymbeline, Jenny Packham and lots of other gorgeous bits and bobs. I had planned to just buy my dress from there when I fell in love with an Alan Hannah creation, but I ended up getting a beautiful ostrich feather shrug from Jenny Packham, and all my accessories too. They also fit me for a corset style basque which kept everything in the right place and provided support for me in my strapless dress. The accessories, Halo and co and Babe, are really stylish and vary in price too.
Once I had chosen my dress the after service was fantastic – it was ready earlier than I expected and I had at least 3 fittings to make sure that everything was in order and fit perfectly. The fittings are done in a little shop across the road where they do all the dress alterations and the lady there that runs the show is fantastic and I found the whole process really special.
Its definitely worth asking for Annalize– she is so experienced in this area that she is guaranteed to find you something that really fits in with your sense of style. She has lots of good bridal tips too and can help accessorize the perfect outfit. Rumour has it her husband is an excellent photographer so might be worth speaking with her about that too (more on that soon)
As a final word I have sent at least a couple of friends there too and both of them have decided on Morgan Davies as the place to get their dress , – boutique, stylish, good value and with a great taste in fashion I can’t see how anyone could have anything other than a fantastic experience. If you are getting your dress from there or know of anyone who did please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
