Guides & Top Tens Places to Shop Special Occasions

It’s wedding fayre season and we are feeling the love so thought it was time for a guide to getting your perfect wedding all sorted in one day here in Southport (timescale may be a tad unrealistic but let’s go with it for fun…)

Where it all begins

Let’s start at the beginning, when the magic moment happens with the all-important proposal. We have covered before now the fact Southport has a historic reputation for fine jewellery – and couples would travel miles to get a unique bespoke piece from Lord Street. There are still so many great places to head to today – too many to name. Hirons of Wesley Street, Shaws Jewellery in Wayfarers can create something bespoke. For antique, try Osiris or Saratoga

The Jewellery Workshop, Tulketh Street

It’s all about the venue…

Now its debatable what’s next – venue or dress? But today we will go venue. There are two amazing independent hotel’s in Southport – with The Vincent offering sleek and contemporary surroundings and The Bold Hotel providing and glamorous and opulent setting. For smaller weddings, there are gorgeous places for an elegant or fun family meal and celebration – from the Firepit to Twelve or Auberge.

Back to the dress…

Hot Frox on Eastbank Street, The Bridal Outlet on Bold Street and Glitz Ritz Tiaras in Wayfarers have all your bridal and bridesmaid needs taken care of with spectacular gowns on offer and personal service. Need that perfect gown made to measure?  Try Patricia’s on Wesley Street or Ortiquea on Market Street for alterations

Prohair Extension Boutique

Feel like a Hollywood star…

We are a stylish bunch in Southport and there is no shortage of great salons offering everything from wedding hair to lashes and nails for the top to toe stunning bride. G Style, Element 5 and Owens – just too many to list so find on here. For a beauty treatment and pamper head to Flutterby Salon or Beauty Beyond Belief or go the whole hog and book a pre-wedding pamper and spa at The Portland Hall.  For extensions to create that spectacular look try Prohair on Union Street


Did someone say cake…

Lilibets, Stanley Street

Wedding cakes these days are something else, and we have three artists here in Southport making sure that whatever look you are going for your grand centre piece it is bound to draw gasps. Vanilla Nova are exquisite, Cake Creations create art and Lillibets bring Parisian chic to everything.


It’s all in the details…

Like the cakes, wedding venue dressing and the details of the day are on another level these days. Have you been spending hours trawling through Instagram and Pinterest looking for inspiration? If you want to do it alone, find lovely little things in Creative Studio or Candle Delight. Fancy a vintage afternoon tea theme? Don’t waste your weekends at car boots, The China Shop has 100’s of mix and match sets. Flowers will be safe in the hands of June the Florist or Aaron Mark Floral Design
