Wedding Wednesday – Sophia Webster Bridal

Wedding Wednesday – Sophia Webster Bridal

I’m a huge fan of Sophia Webster’s humour, since hitting the scene she really has adding a lot of fun to the fashion and accessories market, and brides-to-be get ready as the fashion’s hottest footwear designer has put together a gorgeous collection for your big day, and to say that I’m a little jealous that they didn’t come out in time for my wedding is an understatement. 

Just like her mainline, there are slogans, I love ‘Wifey for Lifey’ so much that I’m considering getting them, well I am a wife after all, there are also some fun strappy fluffy pompom sandals, bejewelled beauties, and even her signature butterfly wing heels have been given an ethereal makeover, which can also act as your something blue.

Haute Couture SS15: 10 Beautiful Wedding Gowns

Haute Couture SS15: 10 Beautiful Wedding Gowns

The beauty of Haute Couture is the glamour, the knowledge that the garments take hundreds of hours to produce, mostly by hand, nearly all bespoke, and always with no real budget in mind, it is why I love it so much as it is basically pure fantasy, and it’s the wedding gowns that inspire the most.

I think this has been one of the best Paris Haute Couture Week’s for a while, truly inspiring craftsmanship that really showcased the best in forward-thinking designs, and the bridal gowns were just exquisite. Elie Saab always inspires brides with his beaded beauties, but I’ve also included gorgeous, dramatic and sexy gowns by Zuhair Murad, Ralph & Russo, Versace, and a contemporary, quirky gown designed by Jean Paul Gaultier that if I had seen it before my own wedding I think I would have totally fallen in love with that tiered tulle skirt.

Wedding Inspiration: The Princess Couture Bride


My wedding is coming up in three months, I already have my two gowns **I know I am greedy**, and generally most details are sorted but that doesn’t mean I don’t swoon over dramatic couture bridal gowns like this one designed by Ralph & Russo.

I think all girls dream of a fairy tale princess dress like this, why wouldn’t you it is simply beautiful, it’s the dress you wish for a lottery win, a sugar daddy or a fairy godmother. I don’t know how much a gown like this would cost, a lot for sure, especially as it took 3,900 hours to do all the hand embroidery – details like that not only make this one special gown but one with a hefty price tag.

But it’s the details of this dress that I truly adore, the 40 different types of beads, the 25 different Swarovski crystal designs, the 6 metre train, and the fact that it needed the help of 5 male models to help the beautiful Hanna Ben Abdesslem turn on the runway.

I just can’t express how exquisite I think this couture bridal gown is, I love everything from the luxurious embroidery to the volume in the skirt and the hand-printed Chantilly-lace effect, I think it is because it marries the modern and traditional bride so well. Now where is my fairy godmother when I need her!!!

To really see the beauty of this gown watch the short film below, the couture bridal gown really shimmers and those details really shine through. Love, love, love it – now this is a wow bridal dress. I am already jealous of the bride who gets to get married in this beauty.

Do you love Ralph & Russo’s couture bridal gown as much as I do?

Haute Couture Week: 10 Wedding-Worthy Gowns At Elie Saab


I adore Paris Haute Couture week it not only brings out the most starry front rows but the fashion on display is always so exquisite and as always Elie Saab didn’t disappoint with his showstopping autumn/winter 2014 ‘Palais Des Lumieres’ collection.

I might have my two wedding dress sorted, which I love and can’t wait to wear, but there is still a part of me that would love to be an Elie Saab bride. To wear a beautifully crafted, dramatic gown is the thing of dreams and the finale gown to the AW14 show was a magnificent, divine and beautiful gown. I am not normally a lover of pearlescent white, but this dramatic and regal gown really does demand that it is the brightest of them all and I love it.

Elie Saab always produces delicate masterpieces that are exquisitely embroidered, they shimmer in the light, and each one of these gowns would make for a spectacular wedding. I love the sheer elements to some of the gowns, which of course I am sure you can get lined, I really adore the champagne gold hue it would make for a great alternative to white and ivory, and I love, love, love the short and flirty lace number, wouldn’t that just be perfect for an elopement wedding.

I have to be honest I loved everything about the AW14 collection and I can’t wait to see the gorgeous gowns grace the red carpet, but these 10 beauties definitely deserve a walk down the aisle.

Do you dream of being an Elie Saab bride?
