Elbeth Gillis Milk and Honey 2017 Bridal Collection

It’s the perfect choice for brides who want to play with finding their perfect look. There’s a choice of four skirts – flowy silk chiffon, pleated satin, silk ball gown and knee length ostrich – three bodice styles, and a variety of overlays. Lace and beading details feature, but only as highlights, and there are brilliantly functional hidden pockets.

We’ve picked a few of our favourite combinations from the Elbeth Gillis Milk and Honey 2017 collection…

Our first choice is the combination of Linda, Marina and Shelby. The Marina beaded tulle cape complements the Linda silk bodice beautifully. Shelby, a soft and flowy half circle chiffon skirt, features a sweep length train.
