The incredible new Alan Hannah Veritas 2018 collection launched at White Gallery London in May. The collection came to light on the catwalk, and viewers swooned over the beautiful wedding dresses… I can see why!
I adore this new Alan Hannah collection for 2018, mostly because there are some really unique styles and shapes for the new season. The Veritas collection sees slim crepe dresses alongside full dresses adorned with fine beading and hand-painted flowers.
“2018 will see a return to sophisticated structural silhouettes, both in full skirted ballgowns and column dresses like Lilith and Dorothea. Fabrics will reflect this, with favourites of ours being Japanese Mikado and Duchesses satin, and for softer lines, silk georgette and organza. Embellishment is subtle and natural with freshwater pearls and floral motifs. Other trends include softer, unstructured crepe and soft satin dresses with interesting details, soft asymmetrical panels, bows, and frills on sleeves and skirts.” – Alan Hannah
Enchanted Garden (pictured above) is my absolute favourite dress from the Veritas 2018 collection. A spectacular dress with scores of tiny embroidered flowers and strong hues of blue and purple, it epitomises femininity.
There are some unique styles in this new collection, so if you are looking for something a little different then how about these stunners…
Bridal jumpsuits are hot right now, and Una by Alan Hannah is amazing. Not only does it feature the keyhole bodice, it also has trendy cold-shoulder billowing sleeves gathered in a long, buttoned cuff. This is a very trendy bridal jumpsuit.
The thing I love most about Kelsey and Matt’s wedding is the simplicity of the day. No bridal party, no suits, no seating plan, no cake or fancy accessories; just the two of them and their loved ones in one spectacular location.
Kelsey and Matt tied the knot at Jalbrook Estate in Australia, a charming alpaca farm, and it was the perfect setting for their laid-back festival wedding. They said their vows under a beautiful tree with a macramé ceremony backdrop.
Kelsey wore a stunning boho bridal two-piece, Tillie top and the Natasha skirt by Karen Willis Holmes, and Matt kept things casual in trousers, shirt and pumps. Their outfits really reflect the relaxed, festival style of their wedding. They wanted their wedding to feel more like a party than a wedding, and it sure has that vibe.
The couple and their guests enjoyed drinks served from a really cool caravan bar, and ate delicious traditional paella.
These pictures taken by CJ Williams Photography really show how relaxed the day was. Enjoy!
“Matt proposed on February 11th on Great Barrier Island off New Zealand. Matt bought us tickets for the trip as a Christmas present and it was just magic. We had a cosy little chalet on top of a hill overlooking the ocean.
“One day Matt suggested that we go for a bush walk, but he pretended to forget his lighter so he could run back up and set up the ring/proposal. When we got back we were both sweaty and hot, and when I saw the box on the table Matt said “Shall we get married?”. It was so unromantic yet so perfect.”
