Dana Bolton London Bridal Designer – Boho Chic Collection

dana bolton wedding dress london 0001 Dana Bolton London Bridal Designer   Boho Chic Collection

For a number of years now I have been following the work of Dana Bolton; a North London based dress designer with a penchant for ethereal elegance. Having spent many years with a focus on bespoke design for brides, she has now branched out into a new direction by creating a stunning collection of dresses that reflect her love of all things bohemian, floaty and gorgeous.

The ‘boho chic’ designs in the collection were created by Dana from some of the most popular elements and flattering silhouettes that she has been commissioned by her bespoke customers for brides who are looking for something incredibly special but with a relaxed style. Whilst the designs encapsulate boho beauty she has ensured that they are easy to wear and comfortable – which let’s face it you need to be on your wedding day! Inspired from the textures and movement of the silks and laces, the details and cuts are dreamy and soft with details to enhance femininity with the signature low backs and delicate embellishments.

I really love the delicate and ‘soft’ styling of these dresses, the elegance coming from the separate silk and lace camisoles teamed with flowing drop waisted skirts are so romantic and are suited very much for the relaxed bride. I particularly love the signature back details on the dresses (which also have in-built cups for comfort!) as they are incredibly flattering and alluring and the French lace cap sleeve details add to the boho look. Overall just incredibly romantic, feminine and classic…

Whilst Dana does still offer a full bespoke service, elements of some of the designs from the collection are interchangeable so brides are able to have a semi-bespoke service too, with a selection of lace overlay dress designs that can be worn with a heavy silk slip underneath. Prices are between £1850.00 – £2350.00 and bespoke designs start at £2500.00 and are priced individually.

Brides are able to see more of the stunning collection and to book an appointment to view and try the separates and dresses on at the Dana Bolton studio in Muswell Hill, North London.

The stunning look book images were created by a very talented team: beautifully photographed by Kirsten Mavric, with Make-Up by Mariam Jensen and Hair Styling by Cassandra Rizzuto.

Elegant + Tropical Cambridge Cottage at Kew Gardens Wedding

Being a petite lady myself, I loved seeing bride Bantika’s style, with her short but oh so sweet Oscar de la Renta dress. Her and George had a ceremony and reception at the pretty Cambridge Cottage in Kew Gardens, which provided the perfect backdrop for their couple portraits, who knew London could look so… tropical?

Bantika and George chose Cambridge Cottage at Kew Gardens as their venue and location for ceremony for a special reason as it was where they went on a date when they first met.

The day was intimate, yet elegant and relaxed, from the drinks on the lawns, the laid back reception in the ‘lounge’ style decorated room filled with fragrance from Diptyque candles with music from students at The Royal Music Academy. The guests helped themselves to an array of food by Blue Strawberry with the delicious dessert cake topped with fresh strawberries by Laura at the Dessert Deli. They also chose a signature cocktail each which the guests enjoyed!

Bantika had her friend Josh Wood (of Josh Wood Atelier) walk her down the aisle and her best friend Anthony Culver kindly decorated the venue with twinkling candles and created the fresh floral displays. Whilst the couple had their portrait photographs with their wonderful photographer Natalie at Natalie J Weddings the guests enjoyed a tour on the Kew Explorer to take in their surroundings on a perfect day.
