I think I have mentioned before that I long dreamed of owning a wedding dress shop, under the delusion that it was all wedding dress modelling and quaffing champagne. Whilst Chic Vintage Brides for the most part satisfies my lust for all wedding loveliness, just occasionally I still dream….. especially when I see beautiful boutiques like Primrose & Finch!
Owned by Kerry Smith, fellow pom and lover of all things pretty, feminine and vintage, Primrose & Finch is a little piece of heaven on earth. Inspired by her English heritage, Kerry opened her boutique to bring the world’s most beautiful vintage inspired tea length and full length wedding dresses to Parnell, Auckland, so both New Zealand and Australian brides can find their perfect gown. And amongst such Bridal elite as Claire Pettibone, Joanne Fleming (remember the unforgettable Immortal beloved inspiration shoot?) and Belle & Bunty I don’t see how any bride could not!
If rather than a long gown you are looking for something more retro and tea length then Joanne Fleming is for you…..
And as if that isn’t enough Primrose and Finch also stock some of the most beautiful accessories from the collections of Jo Barnes Vintage, Enchanted Atelier, Rachel Simpson Shoes, HM Veils and Silver Sixpence in Her Shoe.
What I love almost as much as the designers, dresses and Accessories Primrose & Finch lovingly offer their brides-to-be is their belief that shopping for your wedding dress should be a wonderful experience. Open by appointment only, Primrose & Finch offer one-on-one consultations dedicating the whole boutique to you, as well as a mini high tea on delightful vintage crockery for you and your party to enjoy! There is no charge and no obligation to purchase – only the hope that you will leave Primrose & Finch feeling every bit as special as a bride-to-be should! Now that is my kind of boutique…..
