Ghost Orchid Bride is so much more than a bridal shop: it's a public service. Katey and her wonderful team have brought the globe's coolest bridal brands to the vibrant Fruitmarket area of Hull, and when I say coolest, I mean the coolest. Antipodean dream bridal brands and wedding fashion houses oozing native New York cool have landed on the Humber Estuary, putting our beloved gritty city firmly on the bridal map. Our fave brands & For Love, Alexandra Grecco, Daughters of Simone, Chosen Bridal, Chantel Lauren, and Jackson and Grace are all available for you to try on in the super cool bridal studio...no biggy, no biggy at all.
Ghost orchids the flowers make their own rules: rejecting the norm, refusing to conform, and growing in its own direction, they epitomise a Ghost Orchid bride. They're the sequin slip dress in a sea of meringue skirts; the tasselled back in a line-up of starchy lace; the thrill of a gold dress in a vista of white. But just because the dresses are impeccably cool, don't think the studio is going to be frosty - I mean, it is in Yorkshire, after all!
As soon as you walk through the door, you'll feel completely relaxed - it's a super serene space that is beautifully decked out, and feels totally fitting for the magic that's about to occur. Plus, the team are really lovely, and are there to help with their expert knowledge of the designers, dresses and fabrics. Sure, you're a ghost orchid who grows in their own gorgeous direction, but it's still nice to have a hand in getting there - which is why the studio is a super relaxed, non-intimidating environment to help you truly feel like yourself.
As a bonus, once you've chosen your dream dress, Ghost Orchid Bride also stock accessories from designers we thought we'd only ever be able to lust at from afar, for you to actually be able to wear on your day! We're talking Luv AJ, Olivia The Wolf, A.B Ellie and Naturae Design, all there for you to fall in love with.
