Temperley Bridal Jasmin Winter 2017 Collection

The Temperley Bridal Jasmin Winter 2017 collection features nine elegant wedding dresses (and a bridal jumpsuit), each portraying a deeply romantic, ethereal and decadent spirit.

Rich hand-embellished pieces combine intricate stitch work, embroidery with crystals and pearls, and appliqués onto fine tulles and silk organza. Mixed with their classic French laces and silk crepes, satins and chiffons, this creates a perfect balance of new silhouettes.

“We celebrate ultimate femininity within our bridal collection; the dresses are a celebration of both romance and craftsmanship. My aim is they will create a magic moment for their muse and then become heirlooms for generations to come.” – Alice Temperley MBE

My favourite dress from this fabulous Jasmin 2017 collection has to be Bibi. Just look at it! If you are looking for a feminine dress then this could be the one. Bibi provides an elegant touch of whimsy with its all-over English floral embroidery design in shades of pink.

‘Outdoor Romance’ English Countryside Wedding Styling

Love is in the air today with the pictures of this incredibly beautiful ‘Outdoor Romance’ wedding inspiration.

When Emma Jane Weddings sent me the pictures of this styled shoot, I smiled to myself. One because the styling is delightful, and two because the couple in the shoot are a recently engaged ‘real’ couple. Their love really shines through in these pictures – so lovely.

If you are thinking of having an English countryside style wedding these ideas will really inspire you. The styling is so pretty and romantic, and the colour pallet of ivory, green, blush and a touch of gold really complements the look.

Deborah of Scott Weddings captured this ‘Outdoor Romance’ styling so perfectly. She even managed to get pictures of the cute dogs, erm, behaving themselves!

Countryside, Rural Feel

“The inspiration for our Outdoor Romance shoot came from a cup of tea and cake (obviously) during a visit to Sugnall Walled Garden. I love everything quintessentially English, and what’s more perfect than a beautiful walled garden in rural Staffordshire.

“Although there is a marquee on site, the Peach House caught my eye as a beautiful space, so it’s here we created our tablescape. Keen to stick with the Pantone colour of the year, Greenery, I had Breige, our incredible florist, provide a table runner that sat atop a gorgeous silk runner from Kate Cullen. This really added some texture and movement to the look whilst keeping it very feminine. Jen from Mary Loves Bob created the golden pears and stationery which really added to the countryside, rural feel.

Rolling in Roses Cynthia Rose 2017 collection Ivy dress

Rolling in Roses Cynthia Rose 2017 Bridal Collection

Rolling in Roses is a British bridal wear label based in the heart of Yorkshire. Their ethos is to produce wedding dresses for the free-spirited bride as an alternative choice to the high-street. A collection of dresses which are stylish but understated, highly chic but easy to wear.

We always love to showcase a British designer’s work, and the fabulous Rolling in Roses Cynthia Rose collection is just charming.

Named after the designer’s grandmother, the Cynthia Rose collection is subtly inspired by styles from the 1960s and 70s. Staying true to Rolling in Roses’ proud ‘made in England’ ethos, each dress is named after native British plants and wildflowers.

Four of the six dresses have delicate sleeves and most also have sheer, slashed, open or plunging backs for a breathtaking entrance whilst walking down the aisle.

The dresses in the collection are chic and modern, but also classic and dreamy. Think Wuthering Heights romance, the brooding atmosphere of the Yorkshire moors, and the glamour of beautiful wildflower blooms.

I absolutely love the backs of these wedding dresses – just look at them…

This dress has a breathtaking V cut back which shows off the fabulous scalloped edge of the laser cut floral lace. The entire hem of Violet is also scalloped, and the train drapes out to a point at the centre-back which has an interior wrist loop. This can be tied so it can be easily carried or neatly tied up out of the way for dancing.
