Russell Blackburn opened Blackburn Bridal Couture nearly seven years ago as a result of his passion for making brides beautiful for their big day. His career in bridal began at the UK’s No1 bridal title You and Your Wedding and sister publication Cosmopolitan Bride where he was Marketing and Fashion Sales Director for 9 years, and his knowledge and expertise in this field has afforded him a highly-respected and well-known presence within the industry.
Blackburn Bridal Couture began from a desire to breathe new life in to the London bridal scene. Appealing to stylish brides wanting quality and originality alongside a personal approach to finding The Dress, he is proud to have built up over seven years one of the most successful independent boutiques that London has to offer.
Russell is in his element when styling brides on a one-to-one basis and recently headed up a team of bridal experts on Wedding TV’s ‘Bridal Boudoir’, a makeover show to create the dream look. Russell is also asked to contribute his knowledge and expertise by leading bridal magazines, ‘You and Your Wedding’ and ‘Brides Magazine’. He is currently loving designers Clinton Lotter and Sarah Janks, whose glamourous and super-chic collections are available at Blackburn Bridal. He says, “These dresses ooze sophistication and style for todays modern bride who wants that celebrity red carpet feel for her grand entrance.”

Describe your typical process with a couple.
At Blackburn Bridal, we believe the process of choosing your gown should be fun and relaxed. We want you to enjoy trying on different designs, and our style consultants will help you choose the gown that sets the desired tone for your wedding and expresses your personal style. We aim to try 5-7 gowns on in the time given. Since most of us are not an exact sample size, you may have to visualize how the dress will look once it is made to your size. Try not to dismiss a dress simply because the sample doesn’t fit properly! Remember to focus on style, fabric, colour and details when making your choice & find the connection that is often felt with The Dress!
We suggest you wear nude, seamless undergarments & if weight loss is desired before the wedding control underwear such as Spanx is good to wear. Strapless bras aren’t essential but can help. We have shoes for you to use but feel free to bring a pair from home if you prefer. Pictures from magazines and our website are welcome & for your first visit, keep an open mind to try some styles that are suggested to you by our experienced staff. With our years of experience helping brides look beautiful, we often present a suggestion that ends up being “the one”.
