Rosey by Made With Love Bridal

We are beyond exciting to be adding Rosey by Made With Love Bridal to our permanent collection this March. Made from a beautiful dotty lace, she features a side split (optional) & pebble lined bodice. She is delicate but fierce, we love her!

Keep an eye on our Instagram page where we will be shouting from the rooftops once she arrives in store!

Rosey comes with her own incredibly stunning veil as well, the Rosey veil. Beautifully paired with the Rosey gown, or can be worn with a simpler style dress such as Georgie crepe.

The Rosey veil is due to arrive in store this week.

Galway Bay FM with Lisa Regan

We had a wonderfully busy week down in Galway’s Westend this week. We were invited on to Galway Bay FM with Lisa Regan to chat about how I started my business, all things weddings & life in Galway’s Westend. This was no ordinary show, Lisa was broadcasting live from inside Ernie’s fruit & veg store on Sea Road (back Whest!) such a great studio! I was more than a little nervous but Lisa was amazing & put me right at ease.

If you’d like to catch up & have a listen, you’ll find it here at 1:48:30 

Happy listening! X

Ireland AM

We made our TV debut on Ireland AM this week!

A real pinch me moment for our little shop.

We showed two looks. The 1st look was the beautiful ‘Harlie’ gown by our gorgeous Australian designer ‘Made With Love’, we paired this with the ‘Claire’ hairvine by Emmy McCormick & a plain cathedral length veil to compliment that gorgeous long train on Harlie. The 2nd look was the beautiful ‘Halley’ gown by KATYA KATYA London, we completed this look with a simple eucalyptus crown.

Thank you to top stylist Mandy Maher for featuring us in your bridal slot on Ireland AM, we are over the moon!

Made with Love trunk show March 6th – 16th

We are currently hosting our very 1st “Made with Love Bridal” trunk show, these gorgeous gowns will be in store until Sat March 16th & OMG they are phenomenal!! We just had to try some on 😉 (lots more on our Instagram @vintagepearlbridal)

Harlie in tulle is all kinds of dreamy

Sitting pretty in the boutique (can we keep them forever?!)

Harlie in tulle

Riley in luxe lace

Gorgeous Billie in crepe will be with us until March 16th (we stock Billie in lace in our core collection)


We often get asked what a trunk show is?

A trunk show is when a designer sends us additional dresses from their collection for a short period of time, we don’t usually stock these gowns at the boutique. It gives brides an opportunity to try on an array of gowns by this designer that we don’t stock in our core collection. These dresses can be ordered from the boutique during our trunk show events.

Made with Love Bridal has arrived at Vintage Pearl Bridal!!

We are so excited to welcome Australian designer “Made with Love Bridal” to Vintage Pearl Bridal.

Made With Love bridal dresses are inspired by romance and natural beauty creating a bridal style adored by those looking for a beautifully unique dress to make their own. This Australian label was created by designer, Carla Jenkins, as she struggled to find the perfect gown for her own wedding. She decided to custom-make her dress and then designed a few more whilst also making good friends with her seamstress! Her gowns have a bold, feminine style using a stunning variety of lace and crepe fabrics with wow-factor details.

Have a peep below at some of our gorgeous new “Made with Love” gowns
