If you are looking for an elegant, timeless classic but with a slight modern edge, Cleo might be ‘the one’. You only have to take one look at this dress to see the quality of the full length skirt’s material. The pretty iridescent sequins make this dress shimmer in the light and will make you feel a million dollars as you glide down the aisle.

Alan Hannah Veritas 2018 Bridal Collection - Enchanted Garden Dress

Alan Hannah Veritas 2018 Bridal Collection

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.

Alan Hannah Veritas 2018 Bridal Collection - Enchanted Garden Dress

“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…
