Having recently attended London Bridal Fashion Week (yes, it’s a thing!) I spent sometime hanging out with the fabulous and talented ladies behind Belle and Bunty Bridal. Their stand was was styled to perfection (all about the jungle vibes) but really their wedding dresses from their latest bridal collection ‘A Piece of My Heart’ were the big showcase.
Belle & Bunty were awarded earlier this year as Editor’s Choice at the You and Your Wedding Retail Awards which cements their status as one of the UK’s leading bridal designer’s. As ladies of style themselves (check out their Insta-style, you’ll have serious wardrobe envy, I know I do!) they know what appeals to the cool, confident and contemporary bride.
Their signature style of effortlessly feminine dresses are encapsulate in this latest collection with a more retro appeal, drawing on inspiration from the 60s and 70s perfect for the free spirited and bohemian bride. The structure of the dresses are fluid and luxe with the sumptuous silk fabrics, they skim the figure creating a feminine and flattering silhouette, yet keeping the look modern.
One of my favourites that stood out from the collection was the ‘Marlowe’ with it’s beautiful embroidery over the sheer illusion neckline. The billowy sleeves of the ‘Stevie’ dress would float just perfectly with movement and the ‘Silk Camisole’ is a modern, sexy and sophisticated piece. For those looking for wow factor the ‘Dusty’ dress with beautiful key hole back detail is feminine and alluring whilst the ‘Brooke’ top teamed with the ‘Scarlett’ skirt is boho and beautiful.
Dresses from the ‘A Piece of My Heart’ collection start from £1450 and are made in the UK with high quality silks and lace, and I’m also loving that they are named after iconic figures from these times, which just adds to the carefree and cheeky boho attitude!
For style-loving brides, the collection includes various complimentary two-piece bridal separate pieces such as billowing skirts, delicate camisoles and romantic lace tops which are perfect for brides keen to create a more unique look which is in keeping with their everyday style.
