Bride of Ollichon - Hannah

Posted by Hannah Ollichon on

Hannah and Nick wed just after Christmas at the stunning Old Hall in Ely, Cambridgeshire celebrating six years together and their cute little family.

Where did you meet?

We met in Cambridge when we were introduced through a mutual friend. He made me laugh from the off!

What was your inspiration to go dress-less?

My inspiration to go dress-less came from spending endless amounts of time visiting 'standard' bridal shops and pretty much hating everything I tried on! I felt most dresses drowned me and I wasn't getting that 'wow' feeling. I wanted something ankle length but without looking vintage. I wanted to keep it modern and original. When I explained this, most people looked blankly at me. A friend of mine asked if I'd seen House of Ollichon's collection as she thought it might be something I'd be interested in. I went on the website to investigate. I knew it was exactly what I was looking for straight away so when I came up to the Hoxton hotel and tried on your pieces I was immediately sold. I felt amazing and suddenly got that feeling I'd been searching for. It suited my style and has such a modern twist but at the same time still felt classic. The two piece was beautiful, comfortable and the pockets just gave it that edge (perfect for lipstick on the day). I was able to dance so freely and pick my children up and down without feeling awkward. Perfect perfect perfect.

What did your hubs think?

He LOVED it. In his own words 'you bloody nailed it’.

Best buy?

The Le Fay (and so reasonably priced).

Biggest surprise?

Nick and I did a dance routine during our first dance. It was a huge surprise for everyone. We've had almost 3,000 views on Facebook! The Le Fay is famous haha.

Best part of the day?

It's impossible to pick a best part but walking down the aisle with my two girls is something I will never forget.

Will you wear your pieces again?

Any excuse I can find to wear it again, I will!

Testimonial

House of Ollichon is like nothing else out there. I finally found something to suit MY style and not the other way round. Wearing the Le Fay for my big day was everything I'd dreamt of. Combining modern with classic to create a fresh, dynamic and versatile look for the bride searching for something a little different. Comfortable, stylish and affordable compared to most dresses on the market. Makes me want to get married again just so I can wear another combination! I'm so very happy I found you House of Ollichon!!
