Real Bride: Ashley 🌹

We had the honour of having Ashley Russell come and visit us all the way Canada when she was visiting her family for Christmas. We had been in touch with her a couple of months prior, after she had found her dress on the House of Mooshki website - Valentine!

Being her Mum’s closest stockist, she got in touch to see if we had her. As she isn’t a dress we stock, we were able to organise a box loan to get her in. We love getting a loan box and getting to play with new dresses. And this particular dress was no exception!!

So December came along with our big box of Mooshki dresses and, pride of place was Valentine. It was safe to say that when Ashley arrived with her Mum and Dad, Valentine was everything she imagined her to be. But we of course played the game and tried a range of different styles and designers and although one other Mooshki did come close, as soon as she put Valentine back on that was it. She was the one!

Now Ashley's time frame was small and made shorter by the fact she had to get it to Canada with enough time for any alterations to be done. But working with Mooshki and a very nervous Mother-of-the-bride Ashley received her Valentine on Valentines Day, have you ever heard anything more poetic? We love being able to see our brides in THEIR dress and we get all the same motions of excitement and nerves! On the evening of the 15th February, we received a fabulous selfie of an over the moon Ashley in her dress. Along with words that every boutique own wants to hear;

“I am so appreciative to you, Hannah, Megan, and House of Mooshki for making this come together. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!!

Ashley teamed the dress with our Vicki Veil (minus the bow) by Tulle and Flo which complimented the

1950’s style of the dress perfectly. She also wore a gorgeous pair of red shoes to match the red of the roses not just in the bouquet but on her dress!!!

We think Ashley’s photos are just breathtaking and so did Quirky Weddings who shared Ashley and Keenan’s story in their latest issue. We love sharing our real bride photos, so make sure to keep an eye on our socials for our next beautiful bride.
