About Canvey Island
Canvey Island is a real island sitting in the Thames Estuary off the coast of Essex and measures an area of about seven square miles. About 45,000 people live on the island which has high sea walls because it only sits just above sea level making it prone to flooding during exceptionally high tides. No wonder that the Latin motto for Canvey is “Ex Mare Dei Gratia” which means “From the sea by the grace of God”.
Canvey island was reclaimed in the 17th century by Dutch engineers who were also busy in other parts of East Anglia draining the Cambridgeshire fens. The Dutch were on the island in the 1600s building sea walls, and the very pretty thatched Dutch Cottage dated 1618 is ascribed to a Dutchman, Julius Sludder. The connection between the Dutch and Canvey Island remains today.
Canvey Island has a more peaceful feel than some other parts of Essex and although the island is largely urbanised now, it still retains a remote and distinctive character with plenty of green spaces and unspoilt areas of marshland and beaches. The churches are not particularly old in style but the area more than makes up for this with some stunning panoramic coastal views, perfect for atmospheric images of the bride in her beautiful gown and her entourage of bridesmaids in their pretty dresses.
Canvey Island oozes an old-fashioned seaside charm which has long since disappeared from other parts of the country. It is a more unusual and niche location, absent all the hustle and bustle of mainland Essex whilst remaining within easy reach of London, Southend and the rest of the county. There is holiday accommodation on the island which can be useful for wedding guests if you are getting married out of season and lots to see and do whether you are looking for bucket and spade time down on the beach or just want to enjoy some quieter time in one of the island’s remoter corners.
Two popular high schools service the thriving Canvey population, the Cornelius Vermuyden and the Castle View School. A springboard to further and higher education in Essex and beyond, end of term celebrations for leavers would not be complete without a stylish prom and an even more stylish prom dress to go with it.
Krystalls Boutique offers a range of bridesmaids dresses from top designers with a bespoke and unrushed fitting appointment for every bride. Our tailored prom dress service means that no two girls from the same school will turn up in the same garment. Choose beautiful couture with an unrivalled service at Krystall Boutique.
