Hipping Hall Winter style Part 1 featured on So You’re Getting Married

You know we love a styled shoot; it’s one of the best ways for us to see our designs come alive (other than at real weddings of course), so we were excited when Megan at Typical Type invited us to collaborate on this glamorous winter shoot at Hipping Hall. As we explored the idea of a winter shoot and the team came together it became obvious that there were 2 scenes we wanted to create. A warm and cosy ‘day’ style and a glamorous and elegant ‘night’ style. We were really excited to be working alongside the suppliers that Megan hand picked and we LOVE the collection of images that evolved; we know you will too… Day Lyra Wedding Dress and Altair Shoulder Jewellery Lyra and Altair are from our spring 2015 collection Lyra is a luxurious Duchess satin sweetheart gown, fully boned and nipping in at the waist. Frothy jagged layers of tulle flare out from underneath hand embellished lace appliqués and pearl strings. The dress has a modest chapel length train that flows when you walk. The tulle starts at the hips and billows out behind. We are so excited by Altair, our shoulder jewellery design. The lace Continue Reading →

Winter Weddings at Hipping Hall part 2 featured on So You’re Getting Married

Here is the second part of our styled shoot at Hipping Hall. You can see the first part, all about the day style here. Now we are all about… Night Ara, crystal chain backless wedding dress Ara is simply breathtaking! We cannot describe how beautiful this dress really is (the fact that our model now wants us to make an evening dress version is testament to how great this dress will make you feel). The heavy and sumptuous satin is cut on the bias to skim over your hips and pool around your feet and feels absolutely amazing when you walk. The dress is encrusted with a combination of claw diamante in various sizes and given that rock edge by combining with spikes (although these don’t have to be incorporated into your design). The diamanté chains are wrapped around your silhouette in such a way as to flatter your lines and give the most stunning detail on the deeply cut away back.

The Sidhe; 2014 Legend Bridal Collection

The Sidhe Collection has been designed to capture the blithe and graceful nature of the Sidhe. For those of you not familiar with this Irish folklore let me tell you the story… The Sidhe are the royalty of the Seelie Court. They are the ancestors that created all faery. They are serene, composed and grounded. They frequently travel the pathways between our worlds; the doorways between their glittering palaces and our lands lying among the ruins of our ancient buildings. They are also fabled to be muses, the poets, musicians and dancers, the artists connected to every creative talent. They cause an immense feeling of joy in humans and try to remain unseen. Perfect inspiration for a bridal collection don’t you think? The five Sidhe are made up of Alvarie, Aubrey, Donella, Brielle and Shaylee are feminine and delicate in design, with fabrics that flow like water, cuts that dance on the breeze and silhouettes that drape softly around the bride giving that ethereal enchantment like stepping out from a beautiful dream.
