Perfect Finishing Touch

BagsI thought I’d share a picture of these gorgeous bags with you. They’re proving very popular as an added little extra – beautiful and sparkly but not too over the top. We have silver, gold and black to choose from.

The perfect finishing touch!

Bespoke Design – Mink Silk Dupion with Champagne Lace

Sue ClyneHello,

I have a gorgeous picture of a Mother of the Groom with her brand new Daughter in Law to share today. Sue chose a completely new bespoke design in Pure Silk Dupion in a shade of pale mink. It’s overlaid with hand cut champagne lace with a delicate gold thread to add texture and sparkle.

Sophisticated and covered up, but still sexy – very Yummy Mummy!

Thank you Sue! Congratulations to you and your family.

Love Maria xx

AmyWAnother gorgeous picture of another gorgeous Maria Morris Couture Bride arrived today! This is Amy and her handsome Groom sharing their first dance. The official pictures are to follow – but what a wonderful moment to capture.

Thank you for sharing Amy!

Mother of the Groom


These gorgeous pictures arrived from Claire today. Doesn’t she look amazing? She chose our Juliette Dress with the Evie Jacket as her Mother of the Groom outfit. We’re thrilled at how good she looks.

This cocktail length dress is such a flattering shape. It’s neat and modern looking but still incredibly soft and feminine. The Pure Silk Dupion fabric is available in a million different shades so it’s easy to find the perfect one to suit your colouring and preference, as well as making sure that you outshine the other guests!

Thank you for sharing Claire!

Grown Up Glamour for a Mature Bride

2015 Tony Awards - Arrivals


How AMAZING does Helen Mirren look? She’s 69 (I had to check and can scarely believe it!) and looks incredible. This dress is a gorgeous choice for her – and would be amazing for a mature Bride, or for anyone who wants to rock a red carpet or other special occasion.

I love the fact that she’s choosing carefully what flesh to show – so upper arms are discreetly covered but the decollete is beautifully shown off. Sexy AND smart!

If you’d like a dress inspired by Helens choice get in touch – I’d love to help you bring your vision to life!

Jewels galore…!


We’ve had a lovely time today opening jewels galore! All the new jewellery has just arrived and it feels like Christmas a million times over when you get to un-wrap parcel after parcel of beautiful goodies.

There are lots of lovely necklaces and earrings, plus tiaras, headpieces and bracelets too. We’ve got a lovely mixture of vintage inspired pieces with flower motifs and pearls as well as contemporary looks with geometric clean lines. You can see more on the Bridal Jewellery page.

I’m thrilled with the new collection and I hope you’ll love them too – and now I suppose I’d better take my Tiara off and get on with some actual ‘work’  🙂

Love Maria xx


Design your own Dress



Congratulations to Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright on their recent Wedding. The Dress has just been revealed in the press and I was really pleased to see that Michelle designed it herself.

She was inspired by some other dresses she’d seen, including the Oscar de la Renta gown which Amal Alamuddin wore when she became Mrs George Clooney last year.

She said: “She (Amal) looked amazing, gorgeous. That was the one that stood out for me. I couldn’t find one that I really liked so instead I took inspiration from various aspects of dresses I loved and it’s been made for me.”

Now obviously I’m a bit biased because thats the service that we offer all our Brides (and Mothers of the Bride, and the Groom, and everyone else too!) but I really do think that everyone deserves THEIR perfect dress. Not someone elses vision of it.

Love Maria xx

PS – I wonder if possibly she was inspired by our ‘Grace’ dress too? (below) Lol. Just a thought 🙂
