Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend, whether that was relaxing in the sunshine (shock horror) or doing some wedmin things! Mine was spent on boring house DIY bits and pieces which let me tell you wasn’t exactly relaxing! Needs must though…
Anyway, when I spotted a previous London Bride wearing a cute short 60s inspired dress I thought how often I read or hear of brides not wanting something too fancy, or big or traditional. If that sounds like you, then you must check out bridal designer Tobi Hannah who is renowned for tea length and short wedding dress collections. Fusing classic inspiration but with a modern twist – these designs are flirty, fun and dare I say it practical! Great for the runaway bride or for someone just looking for something a little more fashion-led and fun for their big day. The dresses with traditional touches such as lace, brocade or boatneck necklines are fused with high hemlines, ruffles, floral elements and a little bit of cheekiness (especially those with the plunging necklines!). Perfect to inject a bit of individuality into your wedding and at a very affordable price with the range starting from £600!

Tobi Hannah has a central London studio where you can make an appointment, or check here for stockists. I’d love to hear if you are a Tobi Hannah bride or if you are thinking about a short dress. Good for dancing and showing off the shoes, that’s for sure!
