‘For this was on Saint Valentine’s Day,
When every bird cometh there to choose his mate’
…and with those two short lines of poetry, Geoffrey Chaucer founded the ever flourishing and evolving tradition of lovers expressing their adoration of one another, on this auspicious day: February 14th.
And should you be that bird invited to be a mate for life today, you know exactly where to come for a gown for your special day; a gown of unequivocal style, sophistication and sumptuousness: a gown from Carina Baverstock Couture.
We leave you with a traditional English Valentine’s Day nursery rhyme, and whatever you choose to do today; we hope it’s full of romance, roses and amour.
‘The rose is red, the violet’s blue,
The honey’s sweet, and so are you.
Thou art my love and I am thine;
I drew thee to my Valentine:
The lot was cast and then I drew,
And Fortune said it shou’d be you’
