Belle and Bunty Bridal SS14 – Lady Zelle Collection

AISLE STYLE, Bridal Style

Belle and Bunty Bridal SS14 - The Ophelia

I am always completely head over heels for all the designs that the girls at Belle and Bunty Bridal dream up, and their latest SS14 collection is no different! The ‘Lady Zelle’ Bridal Collection is romantic and luxurious with silk satins, soft tulles, and delicate lace fabrics each design is so unique and  perfect for the Old Hollywood bride who is looking for floating, figure skimming sophistication. The Blossom (below) is an instant hit with me, the delicate lace cap sleeves and flattering keyhole back is pure grace, and oh how I’d long to float around in the incredibly feminine delicate lace and dotted tulle of The Aster, whilst The Maple sure has some va va voom to it with that fabulous structure…

The Blossom incorporates the perfect mix of modern and romantic with hints of texture in its tiny lace capped sleeves and lace peplum around the fitted waistband. Created from the lightest Silk Chiffon layered on top of luxurious Silk Satin which you catch a glimpse of as you walk and the skirt splits to reveal the beautiful contrast of matt and shine beneath. Soft stitched panels run alongside the deep curved V neckline which is echoed in the keyhole back of the gown. Tiny button details at the neck and waist fastening are a subtle detail. Beautiful and incredibly flattering, The Blossom is a must for those looking for something delicate and graceful.

The Aster is a frothy bridal style combining a sweeping delicate dotty tulle skirt and beautiful lace bodice and full length fitted sleeves that delightfully rest on top of the shimmering Silk Satin boned strapless dress underneath. The boat neck and full length sleeves are contrasted by the low cut V at the back which is edged with a soft scalloped lace. Godet inserts in the skirt (a Belle & Bunty signature) will have you twirling around on the dancefloor!

Scallop lace trim and tulle is used to perfection with the introduction of the strapless Tulip Dress. This elegant, simple and classic style is fitted at the bust, around the waist and over the hips down into a sweeping dotty tulle skirt. Godet inserts in the skirt add that extra bit of fullness that will have you spinning on the dancefloor! 

Belle and Bunty Bridal SS14 - The MapleThe Maple

If you are looking for a slightly more structured style wedding dress then The Maple Dress is for you! Created with clean lines in Silk Morocain and offset with a dark antique crystal belt for a true mix of modern and vintage. It’s fitted at the bust into the waist and over the hips into a curved seam just above the knee where the skirt flares out into a gorgeous understated puddle train. For a cheeky edge to this somewhat modest gown we’ve added in a split up the front of the skirt to show off your pins and a pair of fantastic heels.

The dress designed and worn by Hannah {aka Bunty} to her own wedding, The Bunty Dress is the real romantic; light and floaty in Crinkle Silk Chiffon with a sumptuous Silk Satin underlay, finished with handmade silk corsages. With wide sheer straps, the delicate waist gathering creates graceful lines as the full skirt flows from the fitted waistband to the floor creating a train to the back. Delicate silk sashes at the back, which float as you walk, are The Bunty’s final feminine touch. 

The collection ranges from £1650 – £2700, for further information on the Lady Zelle Collection visit their website: www.belleandbunty.co.uk. They also have a lovely boutique in North London if any of the dresses catch your eye I highly recommend paying these ladies a visit to see the dresses in person.
