Playful Quirky Wedding Veils from AM Faulkner

AISLE STYLE, Accessories, Bridal Style

Veils by AM Faulkner

To veil or not to veil? If you think a traditional veil isn’t for you then the playful pieces by London milliner AM Faulkner may be just the finishing touch to your bridal style from fancy floral, gold glitter and playful pom pom these are statement veils. 

Playful Cute Quirky Veils by AM Faulkner

I often end up having the conversation with my brides or friends getting married about ‘to veil or not to veil’ as I know it’s a common bridal quandry. In all honesty, the bad influence that I am, always say go for it, it’s the only time (ahem, we hope!) you’ll get the full romance and fun of wearing one and depending on your style there really is something for everyone. Many designers offer beautiful traditional veils, but I stumbled across AM Faulkner designs a few weeks ago and just had to share them as they offer something a little different which I think may work perfectly for those thinking a more traditional veil may not work for their bridal style.

I met with designer Anne-Marie on Monday at London Bridal Fashion Week and saw all the veils and headpieces in person and resisted the temptation to try one on (genuinely resisted, the glitter veil has my name all over it). They are cute, quirky and playful and are perfect paired with a simple dress.

Jenny Packham 2016 Collection Off The Catwalk

AISLE STYLE, Bridal Style

Dresses Jenny Packham 2016

Jenny Packham 2015 - Portia

It’s always exciting to see the new collections from Jenny Packham, and here’s a first look off the catwalk of some of my favourites from the Jenny Packham 2016 collection. For all those brides on the dress search, you’ll be wanting to keep an eye out for these!

I’m pretty happy as it seems sleeves are in. Yes. A number of the dresses feature proper, floaty sleeves and even long wrist length sleeves that are both elegant, feminine and demure. Whilst some of the styles are beautifully elegant with their high necklines, others feature a deep v which is sophisticated and sexy.

The signature style of metallics, beading detail and heavy embellishment is on track and there are certainly some standout dresses for me, especially knowing how popular the ‘Esme‘ from 2013 has been I think we’ll be certain to see a number of brides choose to sparkle in the Portia and Hermia for their incredible elegance and starlet styles.

Esme by East London Bridal Designer Sally Lacock

I recently met with Sally and spent WAY too long admiring her dresses on her stand at the recently held National Vintage Wedding Fair. As bloggers it’s very easy for us to post pretty pictures but when you see the dresses in person and meet with the designer it really does cement the connection.

The detail and the beautiful silk and lace fabrics really stood out to me, and her love of vintage shows through the dresses not just in the design but in the craftsmanship as each one is individually handmade in London.

All of her commissions are skillfully and individually handmade in London. Inspired primarily by her love of vintage wedding dresses and antique lace Sally’s work is imbued with lightness, delicacy and an attention to detail rarely found in today’s world of mass production.

Urban Brights Winter Wedding At The Asylum And MC Motors

WEDDINGS, Elegant, Informal, Urban

Photography by Robbins PhotographicCo-ordination by London Bride

Urban and atmospheric wedding with winter brights for couple Jess and Nick’s February celebrations at the elegant yet distressed The Asylum and MC Motors. 

Urban Brights Winter Wedding by Robbins Photographic, Co-ordination by London Bride

It’s actually quite a struggle for me to put together the features on weddings that I’ve planned and been a part of, and for that reason you’ll notice they generally have a lot more images so I can only apologise in advance if this is a lengthy one!

I co-ordinated this urban brights winter wedding earlier in February and it’s taken me quite some time just to edit the images down. Partly because Lee at Robbins Phogoraphic has captured the day in such a way I almost feel like I can’t miss anything out, partly because Jess and Nick are a seriously good looking couple and partly because the day was beautiful – in style and in atmosphere. I’m sure you’ll see my struggle!

Jess and Nick managed to combine so much into their day. It was bright but stylish, informal yet romantic whilst being elegant and urban.  Not many couples choose February as a month to marry in, but with colourful wild flowers by Palais Flowers, beautifully worn venues, a cosy atmosphere and all your loved ones together it really could have been any day of the year.
