Forget the crystalline waters and silken sands - there's an altogether more sublime reason to pay St Ives a visit: St Ives Bridal Boutique.
For brides-to-be, this is all the sensory pleasure you'll need: rail upon rail of wedding gowns from an assortment of to-die-for world-class designers such as Made With Love, Rembo Styling, Rosa Clara and Eliza Jane Howell, with the added bonus of many off-the-peg styles to choose from. What's more, the boutique's dressing area has recently been renovated, meaning that the interiors present another jaw-dropping aspect to a shopping trip here, which combines stellar service with stunning location and a huge array of fashion choice for a supremely spoilsome experience.
If that isn't enough, the boutique will soon be unveiling a brand new Australian label and have also just taken stock of fresh-from-the-runway frocks from both Kelsey Rose and Willowby by Watters.
British label Kelsey Rose is all about the individuality. Producing gorgeous gowns, bridal separates and accessories to help brides customise their look with fashion-forward flair, the collection presents something for all style types, from boho lace bodices with cut out panels and dreamy tulle A-line skirts to elegant square-necked sheaths and whimsical 70s crepe frocks complete with chiffon blouson sleeves, front split and buttoned front. Mix, match and layer your ensemble with a crepe corset with exposed boning, detachable puff sleeves, a lace biker jacket and flowing shoulder bows.
And let's not forget the lust-have offerings from Willowby by Watters, whose selection of gowns redefine romance with modern panache. With a focus on texture, colour and multiple looks in one outfit, the latest collection presents everything from bouquet esque frocks in custom floral embroidery to a stunning Aspen lace fit and flare with flutter sleeves and a removable tulle overskirt. For show-stopping fashion, Waverley's metallic embroidery with burnished sequins, floral embroidery and a removable bottom tier hits the sartorial mark, while Yesinia's structured bodice in sheer guipure lace strikes a more understated, yet achingly seductive tone.
