Wedding Bells at Platinum Bridal Fabrics!
Since J.H. Godfrey Weisters arrived from Germany in 1932 and became involved in the textiles trade, the roots of his company have continued to grow. Duncan Weisters, the current Managing Director of DHJ Weisters Ltd and Platinum Bridal Fabrics, joined the company in 1998, launching the bridal wear venture in 2010. We are excited and pleased to announce that, after several successful years helping brides and grooms achieve their perfect wedding day, Duncan himself will be tying the knot on August 10th 2013.
In his everyday work, Duncan handles hundreds of different bridal fabrics, using his skills to select the finest examples to add to the ever-growing Platinum Bridal Fabrics collection. All details of the dress that his bride-to-be Caroline will wear are however being kept closely under wraps; the only information currently known by Duncan is that the dress has been designed and made by Ritva Westenius, five-times winner and current holder of the British Bridal Designer of the Year title.
Finland-born Ritva Westenius has been at the cutting-edge of bridal couture for more than 35 years, a career which has elevated her to iconic status. Using innovative design and artistic flair, Ritva creates wedding gowns that have a timeless elegance and simplicity but that still have a contemporary edge. As well as being awarded British Bridal Designer of the Year and numerous other titles, Ritva has also received the coveted Outstanding Contribution to the Bridal Industry award. Ritva's daughter, Chenca Williams, is now a co-director of the exclusive design company and has brought her own vision; passionate, flamboyant and dramatic, Chenca draws inspiration from her 25 years as Principal Dancer in the Royal Ballet.
Everyone at Platinum Bridal Fabrics would like to congratulate Duncan and Caroline on their upcoming marriage and wish them health and happiness together for the future. We also look forward to seeing Caroline's dress, which is sure to be breathtaking - check our gallery soon for pictures!
