Temperley Bridal Dahlia 2018 - Virginie Dress

Temperley Bridal Dahlia 2018 Collection

This has to be one of the prettiest collections of wedding dresses for 2018. The attention to detail and intricate embroidery on the dresses in the Temperley Bridal Dahlia 2018 collection is amazing.

Embroidery features heavily in Temperley Bridal’s beautiful new collection of 11 wedding dresses. The dresses are ethereal, romantic and quintessentially feminine.

The 2018 Dahlia collection brings a distinct sense of individuality to Temperley Bridal. Embellishments inspired by decorative necklaces and tiaras of the art nouveau period adorn the dresses. Finest silk, chiffon, French lace and exquisite tulle combine an art nouveau inspired artwork and create a classic 50’s couture feel.

Temperley Bridal Dahlia 2018 - Virginie Dress

The Temperley Bridal Dahlia collection is all about mixing and matching details from some of fashion’s most iconic eras. A little art nouveau, flashes of 20th-century bohemia and a hint of 1950’s couture. There is a wedding dress for every bride, whether you are looking for timeless classic or heirloom chic.

“I love designing bridal. There is something magical about designing the dream dress for that very important day in a woman’s life. I am allowed to imagine the ultimate fantasy piece and am always so honoured when someone chooses to become a Temperley bride.

“Each dress has to be the perfect blend of functionality and fantasy. A bride must never feel overwhelmed by her dress; it should allow them to be the ultimate version of themselves.” – Alice Temperley

Three of my favourite styles from the collection are…

All the dresses in the 2018 collection are ultra-feminine, have a modern twist on the classic dress and are dancing-friendly. The way the skirt moves, the way the bodice keeps its shape, and not forgetting the internal corset which makes you feel fabulous and sexy, mean you can dance like no one is watching and feel super-confident.

Each style starts its journey in the mind of one of the design team. Whether their inspiration is from the runway or a film, the focus is always on creating something special for a bride’s big day. You can see how they create each So Sassi and Sassi Holford wedding dress in the handmade in England video below.

Designed and handmade by an expert team of pattern cutters, seamstresses and hand-beaders and I’m sure these fabulous dresses will blow you away. I’ve chosen my favourite four dresses from the So Sassi 2018 Collection…

As the name suggests, the new 2018 bridal collection from Elbeth Gillis is all about mystique, and it’s just magical. The Elbeth Gillis Mystique collection includes 13 lavish new wedding dresses with mystery and allure.

Elbeth Gillis’ 2018 bridal collection features a lot of nude-look lace, an assortment of exotic designs and floral patterns, delicate straps, sexy plunging necklines and backs, stunning sheer back detail and sparkling beadwork. There is an array of silhouettes within the collection; from full skirted ball gowns to flowing mermaid skirts, there is a style for everyone.

Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist 2017-2018 - Cyrene Dress

Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist 2017/2018 Bridal Collection

Step into a world of feminine bridal beauty with Katya Katya Shehurina’s 2017/2018 bridal collection, Morning Mist. This collection captures the romance of the countryside and picturesque landscapes of wildflowers, and is so incredibly beautiful and utterly feminine.

The inspiration behind these gorgeous wedding dresses is the earthy, wild, botanical world of romance, where the night ends and the day breaks. For the modern bohemian bride this place feels like home, so quiet even the flowers have not yet woken from the night’s slumber. Yet beauty radiates like the mist all around; hence the name of the collection, Morning Mist.

Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist 2017-2018 - Cyrene Dress

“The new collection started from a picture of a girl running through a field. You can only see her back but you can almost feel the warm sun touching her skin and hear her happy laughter. A lot of my inspiration comes from what’s around me – the elements, wilderness, wildflowers, and the contrast of colours. This collection remains routed in the beauty of nature and the feeling of pure happiness and freedom which comes from this.” – Katya Shehurina

I have long been a fan of Katya Katya Shehurina wedding dresses for their creative approach to the designs. Their collections always offer something a little different.

Katya Katya Shehurina dresses are aimed at brides who want to distinguish themselves with elegance and allure, and to let their personality shine through on their wedding day.

The thing I love most about the Morning Mist collection is the pretty coloured dresses, including blush, pink and blue. It’s so lovely to see a bridal collection that really offers something unique.

Walk with Katya as she takes you through this beautiful world with delicate silk flowers and intricate hand embroidery, adding fine detailing to signature laces which have been timeless throughout the Katya Katya Shehurina collections.

All of the dresses in the 2017/2018 Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist collection are simply divine. I can’t choose a favourite as I really do love them all, but my ‘stand out’ coloured wedding dresses from the 2018 collection are…

Chantilly
