THE queen of British bridal wear, Jenny Packham has been making the wedding dresses we have been dreaming about since we could. The latest Spring 2016 Collection inspired by William Shakespeare´s “A Midsummer Nights Dream” is a perfect example of just such a dream: to be a fairy queen. The celestial silk tulles, romantically sculptured corsetry and cascading silk chiffon. Really, what more could a girl want!


Renowned for his glamorous, luxurious collections, Ian Stuart is a well-known name world wide. The international multiple award-winning designer has always had a passion for making women look and feel fabulous and his latest collection is no exception.

Playfully stylish, Temperley London is a favorite among brides-to-be for the diversity of her collections. In her most recent collection, the dresses drape over the body like water and the designer has added her signature romantic touches, including plenty of hand-sewn beading and vintage lace.
