Silk Rose of Lavenham

The medieval village of Lavenham may already be the food capital of Suffolk but it is fast becoming a must for the discerning bride.

Water Street, Lavenham, Suffolk

The region already has a wealth of ultra romantic hotels and venues with ancient oak beams, inglenook fireplaces, cottage gardens and cloister courtyards.

Lavenham is probably the one location where the bride to be can truly have it all. In this stunning location choices range from the fairy-tale Swan Hotel, St Peter and St. Paul’s one of England’s finest parish churches and superb French dining at the Great House.

Silk Rose by Clare Perkins, Lavenham, Suffolk

Lavenham now boasts it’s own bespoke wedding dress couture in the shape of Silk Rose run by the wonderful Clare Perkins. Clare has over 40 years experience and can count the Queen and the Queen Mother amongst some of her high profile previous clients. She runs Silk Rose from the upstairs studio of one of Lavenham’s gorgeous cinderella style cottages, co-located with the equally talented bridal jewellery designer Moi Mathieson in the ground floor studio.

Clare prides herself on running a studio that is completely ‘open’ enabling her customers to visit and actually see their dress being made and help shape the extra special time created by a bride’s wedding preparations. Clare says, “Every client gets my undivided attention and it brings me so much joy to know that I have contributed to the happiness that goes along with this very special day in someone’s life”. A unique part of Clare’s service is to make herself available on the day of the wedding if the bride requires assistance with the preparation stages. “I love to see the bride to the door of the church so I can do a final fluff of the train, stand back and admire the beautiful bride with her father on her arm, it’s a priceless moment and the culmination of the love I put into all my dresses”.

Having personally met Clare and visited her studio in Lavenham The Wedding View elves can whole heartedly recommend Silk Rose – we reckon Clare is a very safe pair of hands to entrust your dress design to and think you will have a lot of fun in the process.
