And of course David will be at your disposal with expert advice. He explains: “Before meeting the brides, they send me a contact sheet to give me an idea of their size, what they are looking for, their budget etc. Next, [on the day] I bring them all the expertise that I have acquired over the years. Brides get terribly anxious, but I say let me worry about you. “
David will be at Bromley Brides once a month
Although she is a designer of clothes for royalty who has even been consulted for Netflix The crownDavid has also had his fair share of experience with budget brides. During filming Say yes to the dress, it is David himself who asks himself: “Can we not do something more affordable?” Then the show was then filmed at an Oxfam charity store where the end of line dresses and donated dresses are sold. “It’s such a smart concept,” exclaimed David. “It was awesome, and it was a challenge.”

David recalled a moving moment when “everyone broke down in tears”. He explained, “The bride came out and said, ‘Do you know what I’m going to do after I wear it I’m going to clean it up and return it so they can sell it again”, I just thought it was wonderful. “
David and his ex-wife Elizabeth designed Princess Diana’s incredible wedding dress
David – who co-created Diana’s dress alongside his ex-wife Elizabeth Emanuel – is still the professional, and he demonstrated it with his efforts for Princess Diana in 1981. He revealed exactly what he had done to make her secret wedding dress: “People were rummaging through my trash cans for fabric, so we had to pick up all the trash and take it away.
“But we were mean, and we would put pieces of pink taffeta in the trash to throw them away.” He added: “We showed Diana’s mom a sketch and then immediately tore it up, we didn’t want it floating around.”
The Bromley Brides Wonder Room will host private appointments with David Emanuel once a month and spaces are advised to be reserved in advance. Platinum VIP appointments with David Emanuel can be booked online at bromley-brides.co.uk
