Ellen and Alex’s ELfestivAL Wedding

The first real wedding we are going to share in 2017 is the awesome wedding of wedding planner Ellen to her husband Alex that was recently featured on Festival Brides… With a love for music and all things Mexican, Ellen and Alex created the most amazing ELfestivAL… you just have to check out all the amazing detail on the Festival Brides blog.   As for her dress, Ellen had a clear idea of her perfect dress, right down to the type of lace she was looking for, and try as she might she simply couldn’t find it. So what does a wedding planner do in times of need? She reaches out to her friends in the industry for recommendations for bridal designers that could create what she was looking for.

Being the creative soul that she is she really let her sense of style and individuality shine through. Our favourite bit? the gold veil by HF couture. I mean, a gold veil!

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.
