A 100 Years of Wedding Dresses Styled Shoot

100 Years of Wedding Dresses header

Wow, how wedding dresses have changed over the years. We love this styled shoot that showcases the different styles of wedding dresses in the last 100 years.

You will see that modern day wedding dresses have taken a lot of inspiration from years gone by, with current collections using a lot of lace and hand-sewn detailing to create exquisite designs with details reminiscent of bridal styles from the past.

Big thanks to the creative team and Noelle Kraft Photography for sharing these amazing pictures with us…

“The rich history of Edgewater Hall inspired our 100 Years of Wedding Dresses Shoot. We created 14 different wedding looks that showcase the beauty of the everyday woman, and blend together the history of Edgewater Hall with that of the wedding dresses.

“We worked with a beautiful collection of wedding dresses that ranged in fashion and style from the 1900s to modern times. One couldn’t help being taken back in time as each dress accentuated the uniqueness and individuality of their era.

“Much credit is to be extended to the locals involved in this shoot, including the four bridal and vintage boutiques located in Staten Island, as well as Noelle Kraft Photography and local production company Shadow and Sound. Shooting this project at the Edgewater Hall was the ‘pièce de résistance’, as it gave the shoot the grand, historic ambience of yesteryear it needed to be successful.”

The National Wedding Show Spring 2016 Catwalk

The National Wedding Show Catwalk Spring 2016

The National Wedding Show Spring 2016 Catwalk

A few weeks ago we went to The National Wedding Show in London, and had front row seats for the spring 2016 catwalk show, which was, as always, incredible.

As a reader of The Wedding Community, you probably know just how excited we get when it is ‘show time’, and one of the main reasons is because of the catwalk, as we get a glimpse of what the season’s wedding fashions will be.

The wedding dresses this season really have the wow factor. There was a lot of lace and detail featuring on the dresses, with A-line and the fuller skirt making a bit of a comeback.

Our favourite dresses on this seasons catwalk at The National Wedding Show were by Alfred Angelo. Which is your favourite?

National Wedding Show Catwalk Autumn 2015

The National Wedding Show catwalk Autumn 2015 was incredible. We get so excited when we see a sneak peek of the new season bridal wear, and wow; brides-to-be are in for a real treat!

The National Wedding Show catwalk showed that there are so many beautiful wedding dresses for 2016, and a huge trend is going to be sheer lace necklines, shoulders and sleeves; and we LOVE it – it’s so feminine and ethereal.

Also on the catwalk we saw some quirkier styles; the two-piece with the bare midriff (if you dare to bare!), the short front – long back dress, and dresses with pockets.

With so many gorgeous dresses next season it might be a tough decision choosing THE dress. To help you, take a look at this article – How to Find Your Perfect Wedding Dress, by Ellie Sanderson.

So, without further ado, the stunning pictures from The National Wedding Show Catwalk Autumn 2015…
