London-based bridal designer Shanna Melville has just released her gorgeous 2018 collection. The 2018 wedding dresses feature soft, flowing fabrics including silk chiffon, silk crepe, silk organza and tulle, and this relaxed, floaty look gives a lovely boho feel.
Each dress in the Shanna Melville 2018 collection is very feminine and flattering, and delicate beadwork adds detail and shimmer. Featuring delicate Bardot sleeves, open backs and spaghetti straps, these dresses are ideal for summer brides or those planning a destination wedding.
“The inspiration for this entire range has come from my travels around the world. Having been in Australia for the last couple of months, this has inspired my light, flowing dresses.
“As well as the design of the dresses, the fabrics have had a global route too. This particular collection includes fabrics from Italy, France, Portugal and even from as far away as Asia. I worked very closely with a hand-beading expert in India which helped me to come up with lots of beautiful beaded designs. The soft, flowing fabrics are a key part of the feel of the collection, making this range perfect for laid-back, boho brides.” – Shanna Melville
The bohemian vibe lent itself perfectly to the sun-soaked photo shoot in Byron Bay, Australia. Powder-soft sand and gleaming sea was the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous 2018 collection.
My favourite three dresses from the Shanna Melville 2018 collection are…
I have always loved a lace wedding dress and Ava has to be one of my all-time favourites. The intricate lace work that overlays the blush underskirt is so pretty, and the lace detail on the sheer back looks amazing.
If you are looking for a wedding dress to make you feel ultra-feminine then how about Bella? Again, I love the intricate detail of the lace and beading that adorns the pretty open backed bodice. So pretty.
The sheer draped sleeves of Abigail adds another interest to the sheath silhouette, and the pretty detail that covers the dress is elegant and romantic. Such a pretty wedding dress.
The Shanna Melville 2018 collection is available at Luella’s Bridal in Wimbledon, London, and Satin Bow Bridal in St Albans. Prices start from £2,000.
