Jill wears the Fin dress by Daughters of Simone and bespoke flower crown and veil by Archive 12
"I cannot praise Claire and Archive 12 high enough, I had the most wonderful experience from start to finish. I had been to a huge number of traditional wedding shops and tried on hundreds of dresses but could nothing felt right, nothing felt like me. As soon as I walked in to the incredible Archive 12 studio I knew I would find my dress and I did!! I was shopping by myself and Claire made me feel special and totally relaxed. As soon as I put ‘Fin' on I knew it was my dress, it was exactly what I had been looking for and was so original and different to anything else I had seen and everyone who has seen it has just been blown away by it. Claire was also able to make me a bespoke veil and flower crown to perfectly match my colours and flowers and these are something I will treasure."
Alison wears an original Edwardian lace dress with satin sash
"My dress was the most delicate Edwardian lace handmade by someone else who was in love and excited about getting married. I loved that the dress had a history to it.
I am so glad that I found Archive 12, Claire not only was wonderfully welcoming, putting me at ease immediately, but she was a wealth of ideas and information which helped me in the rest of the wedding planning. The trip to archive 12 is exactly what I wanted in wedding dress shopping."
Holly wears an original cotton edwardian wedding dress.
"I knew that I wanted a vintage wedding dress, the problem was that I didn't know where to find one! A chance google search luckily brought me to Archive 12, a treasure-trove of gorgeous gowns. This was the last dress of the day that I tried on, and I immediately knew it was the one. It was beautiful, classic and understated - perfect for our small elopement in Edinburgh. I was one very happy bride who would recommend Archive 12 to anyone looking for something a bit different."

Tricia wears a 1960s dress with ribbon trim and train.
"Dealing with Claire was an absolute pleasure from start to finish! I loved that my dress was ethically sound, totally unique (specially after my best friend added a few custom touches!), and had a story all of its own. I never thought I'd wear white, let alone something relatively traditional, but I felt completely comfortable, beautiful and special all day. Thank you!"

"I always knew that I wanted to wear a vintage dress for my wedding and the selection at Archive 12 gave me so many options to choose from! I finally settled on an a beautiful Edwardian lace dress and I'm so glad I did!
Claire was on hand with plenty of advice and understood exactly what type of dress would suit our wedding at Riverdale Barn and I like to think that it was the perfect choice for our music themed wedding."
