Hello ladies… and a very happy new year to you all! Whether you’re one of our current brides to be with a wedding dress on order with us, or a newly engaged bride to be who has found us after googling wedding dresses Worcester … we hope you had the most incredible Christmas and new year celebrations.

We are well and truly back into the swing of things here at Gatehouse Brides and are starting this brand new year off with our dress of the month for January. The incredible …

Genoa – Alan Hannah’s Rita Mae Collection.


We have decided that the only January blues around here are the ‘something blue’ kind! With daily inspiration on our facebook and instagram feeds you can follow our month of shunning those January blues for all things bridal and beautiful! With that in mind, we simply had to feature this incredible blue lace wedding dress as our dress of the month.

The Rita Mae collection from Alan Hannah, is a label devoted to creating wedding dresses that can be worn on the big day and beyond. The emphasis being on ‘beautiful’ and ‘timeless’. Shown here in tea length, Genoa, as with all the dresses in the Rita Mae collection, is available in three lengths; short, tea length and long.


This dress is currently on loan to the boutique from Alan Hannah and is only in for a limited time. So if this is the ‘something blue’ you’ve been looking for get in touch to arrange an appointment to come in and try it on without delay.

We also have some beautiful bridesmaid dresses available in various shades of blue from Kenneth Winston and Eliza and Ethan. You can see the full range of gowns we offer here at Gatehouse, on our bridesmaid dresses page.

For those of you who would like a more traditional white or ivory wedding dress, you could also think about adding your ‘something blue’ by way of a beautiful pair of bridal shoes such as those we stock, from Perfect Bridal Shoes. Take a peak by clicking here!
