Stockist Profile: Limelight Occasions

When you first step onto the catwalk, under the crystal chandeliers in an Ian Stuart bridal gown you get a sense of how you are going to feel on your wedding day. Haley Guest is managing director and owner of Limelight Occasions and she runs the boutique along with her mum, creative director & co owner Sue Brougham and their brilliant team of bridal consultants Jane, Linda and Claire. Their seamstresses Alaina, Carol and Rita perform daily miracles with needles and pins; everyone in this shop lives and breathes weddings. They love helping to style our brides and really love getting to know their brides as they prepare for their big day.

The boutique is spacious and, along with their Ian Stuart bridal gown, range they also stock mother of the bride and groom outfits and bridesmaid as well as formal men’s wear so they really do cater for your whole bridal party! As a team, they have won national bridal awards for their boutique and website and have been featured on national television. In fact other programmes featuring bridal appointments at Limelight will be screened in the near future.

“For us, Ian Stuart bridal gowns are like chocolate – irresistible! Our favourite days in the bridal calendar include choosing our new season’s dresses at Ian’s show at The White Gallery (we have added a further 12 dresses this time) and our designer days when you can see Ian’s entire collection in our boutique. Our brides really enjoy this experience. We serve bubbly and refreshments and the atmosphere is always friendly and relaxed with a definite buzz. It is so exciting trying on the very latest in gorgeous gowns and exchanging styling ideas – it truly is the perfect time and place to find the dress of your dreams………..” Haley Guest.


Katherine on her experience at Limelight Occasion’s Designer Day:

“There simply aren’t words to describe the ‘dress experience’ that was delivered by Limelight Occasions. Their eye for detail and skilled work during the fittings, the sourcing and bespoke creation of my veil, how they looked after my mum and bridesmaids, and on each visit made me feel like the most important bride in the world. I cannot thank them enough for the personalised professional service, expert care and attention to detail. I originally found Limelight due to the fortunate timing of an Ian Stuart showcase weekend and I feel so lucky to have done so. Getting married is a once in a lifetime experience and Limelight certainly delivered everything I could have imagined. I will be sending all my friends to see Sue and the Team when they get married.”

Limelight and Ian Stuart would like to thank Katherine and Ben for their custom and to wish them the very best for a long and happy life together.
