We are over the moon to have had lots of  wedding blog action this year and we were asked to be part of this cute photo shoot featuring real brides to be on Rock my Wedding

Our Naughty little sister Rawhide Corsets was asked to create corsets for all the female singers and dancers for the final scenes of Jesus Christ Superstar the Musical…which went out on a sell-out national Arena tour in the autumn… the musical start Tim Minchin , Mel C and Chris Moyles …we went to see it and it was a very proud moment for us, seeing our corsets up in big lights on an immense stage as part of an incredible production….I think my mum was proud of her not so little girl that night!!


Our stunning bride Emma got married in September

November was EPIC, Fact!!-EWE better believe it!! 6 months in the planning, we held The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza aka EWE at Fazeley studios in Birmingham and it was fab, we couldn’t have hoped for a better reaction!!

EWE is the brainchild of Sassy from Assassynation, Vikki from Liliia designs and myself – our idea was to bring a real alternative in wedding style to what is on offer at the moment…here is the blogpost   I wrote leading up to it  and here is a review by one of our suppliers, Shelly from Toast of Leeds photography. If Ewe missed out in November ,   don’t despair we are back on March 24thFlockEWE
