Melissa & John’s Real Wedding

*Benjamin Roberts Bride of the Month, July 2011* Melissa and John had their wedding ceremony and reception at Pelham House in Lewes.  Despite the rain they still managed to have a wonderful celebration with 60 members of their friends and family, followed by a bigger reception in the evening.


The Wedding Dress

Bridalwear store, White Dresses and Tiara’s in Crawley, had been recommended to Melissa by three of her friends who had all received excellent service and a wonderful experience there. Melissa didn’t really have a clue about what style of gown she wanted and having never tried on a wedding dress before she was convinced that nothing would fit or suit her.


The first dress that Melissa tried on was a design from the Tia Collection at Benjamin Roberts. She loved it straight away but tried on a further 6 or 7 dresses afterwards just to be sure.  Melissa’s heart was set on the Benjamin Roberts design due to the beautiful cut of the fabric and flattering bodice design.  The beading detail on one side of the bodice was simple and elegant and the skirt was slightly ruched with asymmetrical detail.  All in all it was the perfect dress for the bride-to-be and looked beautiful throughout the day.
