Additionally, consider the fabric, color, and texture of the bow to complement the rest of your bridal ensemble. Whether you want a classic, romantic look or a more contemporary and unique style, there’s a bridal gown with bow details to suit your taste.

An elegant wedding in King’s College Cambridge

Alexandra and Mark’s love story began nearly eight years ago in King’s College, Cambridge which with its stunning Chapel and rich university history, felt like a second home to them. They decided that it would be there, that they would tie the knot as their perfect wedding location. They wanted, however to add a special touch to their big day by creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that felt like an intimate family gathering.

 

 

 

Alexandra’s fashion-forward wedding dress was an absolute showstopper. Her choice of a Viktor and Rolf short dress, adorned with intricate and delicate floral appliqués, was a bold departure from the traditional bridal gown. To add a touch of regal elegance, she wore a custom-made exclusive Farah Novias cape that flowed behind her as she walked down the Chapel’s long aisle.

Alexandra’s magnificent cape was inspired by the iconic couture designs of the 1960s. The result was a breathtaking cape that had the elegance of a kimono from the back, while resembling a magnificent bow. Crafted meticulously from luxurious natural silk, the cape showcased the delicate flowers that adorned the dress, creating a harmonious and enchanting look. To complete her bridal look Alexandra wore a matching hand crafted headpiece of the same exquisite flowers that perfectly accessorised her French twist hairdo.

Alexandra’s Manolo Blahnik shoes were the perfect complement to her chic and modern look, while a Simone Rocha purse added the final flourish of femininity. It was a stunning reflection of her impeccable taste and love for all things fashion. And to add a touch of something blue, the bride incorporated the iconic Manolos buckle into her ensemble, making it her own unique “something blue.”

 One of the important factors when choosing the veil is the type of hairstyle you will wear at your wedding. You have to be very clear on how you will wear your hair at your wedding. This will help you decide on choosing the right veil and your final look 

4.elaborated Veils 

Wedding veils embroidered with lace or embellished with rhinestones or flower applications are true works of art and can add a touch of elegance to your bridal look.

5.Veil Length

Longer veils, like cathedral or chapel length, create a dramatic effect, while shorter veils, like fingertip or shoulder length, offer a more casual or vintage look.

6.Trial Run

Before the wedding day, have a trial run with your hairstylist to ensure the veil is securely fastened, and you’re comfortable with how it looks. This will help avoid any last-minute mishaps.

7.Veil Removal

Plan how you want to remove the veil after the ceremony. Some brides choose to keep it on for the reception, while others prefer to remove it for ease of movement.

8.Hair Accessories

Consider adding hair accessories like combs, pins, or tiaras to secure the veil in place and add extra sparkle or detail to your hairstyle.

Remember that the most important thing is that you feel confident and beautiful on your wedding day, so choose a veil that makes you happy and complements your overall bridal look.

TWO PIECE WEDDING DRESSES

Catherine Deane

 

Mix and match bridal separates have revolutionised the world of wedding fashion, offering brides a fresh and personalised approach to their wedding day attire. Gone are the days when a single, traditional gown defined the bride’s look. With the advent of bridal separates, brides now have the creative freedom to curate their own unique ensemble that perfectly reflects their style, personality, and the overall theme of their wedding.

 

 

Bridal separates typically consist of two or more distinct pieces that can be combined to create a stunning bridal outfit. These pieces include tops, skirts, pants, jackets, capes, and even jumpsuits, all designed to be mixed and matched to achieve a variety of looks. This trend not only allows brides to showcase their individuality but also provides practical benefits such as versatility and the opportunity to re-wear these pieces for other special occasions.

 

 

One of the key advantages of opting for mix and match bridal separates is the versatility they offer. Brides can switch out different components to create multiple looks throughout their wedding day – from a more traditional gown for the ceremony to a chic and comfortable outfit for the reception. This adaptability also extends to the post-wedding life, as brides can reconfigure their separates for other events, ensuring that their investment in wedding attire continues to bring joy beyond the big day.

 

 

The mix and match trend also caters to a wide range of body types, allowing brides to find pieces that flatter their individual proportions. For instance, a bride who prefers a ball gown skirt can pair it with a fitted lace bodice for a princess-like look, while a bride who wants something modern and sleek can combine a tailored crop top with a flowing A-line skirt.

 

Another advantage of bridal separates is that they can be more budget-friendly compared to a traditional wedding gown. Instead of investing in a single high-priced gown, brides can allocate their budget to specific pieces that they truly love, ensuring that every element of their outfit aligns with their vision.

 

 

Ultimately, mix and match bridal separates empower brides to take control of their wedding day style, enabling them to break away from convention and embrace their uniqueness. This trend is a celebration of individuality, offering brides a canvas on which to paint their own love story through fashion. Whether the aim is to achieve a timeless and elegant look or to experiment with contemporary and bold choices, mix and match bridal separates are here to stay.
