To celebrate the launch of our brand new flagship store, we’re taking a look back at our beautiful Bijoux Brides who bought their gown from our Cadzow Street store over the years.

Dawn and David share their love story with us below…

Bijoux Bridal: Where did you and David meet?

Dawn: My husband is my high school sweetheart. We were great friends, always having a laugh and the best time together. He eventually asked me to be his girlfriend in 2002.

BB: Tell us about the engagement Dawn! How did it happen?

D: In 2009, we welcomed our first son Harrison and we bought our first house together (still no engagement though).

In what felt like forever, David took me to Paris for my 30th birthday in 2015. On our last night, we had a lovely dinner and went on a cruise. We stopped off at the Eiffel Tower and I turned around and he was holding the ring and asked me to marry him. I cried and laughed and of course, said yes.

David told me that the ring belonged to my gran and my parents had passed it onto David to give to me. It’s extremely special to me as I never met my gran but now have a little part of her forever.

 BB: So when it came to picking your dream dress, what was your experience and how did you decide on “the one”?

D: I knew the place to go for your dress was Bijoux! The girls are so lovely and genuinely excited for you. I knew that I had found my dress as soon as I had seen it but selected a few more just to be sure.

After trying on all of the other dresses, I finally came to my favourite gown. As soon as I put it on I was so overwhelmed and I knew that it was my dress. I couldn’t wait for David to see me in it.

BB:  So you had the perfect engagement, you’ve found your dream dress… but what about your wedding?! 

D: We had the most wonderful wedding at Crossbasket Castle. Our son Harrison read the most amazing poem that he wrote with his Gran – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Everything was perfect and I felt like a goddess. I have never felt so beautiful as I did wearing my dress. Everyone just loved it. I’m was so pleased Bijoux could be part of my day and help me every step of the way. I couldn’t have asked for anything better!
