Spanish bridal label Otaduy opened their new showroom in London this month. With white leather jackets, open back dresses and crop tops with skirts, they offer a refreshing and new take on bridal for the modern and boho bride.
Having worked in the wedding industry for over 6 years now, it’s such a pleasure to hear about fresh and exciting launches, especially those in London (obvs!). A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to visit the beautiful new showroom of Otaduy, a Spanish bridal design label who have just launched in London.

Having chatted to the very lovely sisters behind the label (at quite some length, they really are lovely), it’s clear Otaduy which started back in 2011, is no ordinary bridal label, and definitely re-inventing the term ‘bridal’. It’s core values are creativity – heavily inspired by music, cinema and art – and as such this is an indie brand for brides with personality who want to feel like themselves on their wedding day.
Minna Bridal has long been on my radar and is a designer who I am always recommending to those brides looking for affordable, laid back bridal style. Not only is the collection boho in style, it’s also for those environmentally conscientious brides as this is very much a part of the brand which is described as ‘Eco Luxe’.
This collection has great appeal for the stylish bride on a budget with the affordable price range – beautiful short boho dresses starting from £340 (perfect for the elopements, beach and city weddings) through the range to the higher end more intricate designs in beautiful fabrics at £1400 which is still very much affordable style for brides.
Below are a few (!) of my favourites, however you can see the full collection here, and some of the editorial images below too. True to Minna’s style, I love the sheer fabrics, floating feminine skirts, boho shifts in heavy lace and relaxed yet luxurious silks. As a sleeve lover, I’m also pleased that many of the dresses features sleeves or more coverage for those not looking to flash so much flesh!
I may also be a little biased as this dress is the ‘Charley’, I should say not named after me at all but I think she’s rather lovely…!

Since 2008, Minna has always created her collections with sustainable, organic and recycled or locally produced textiles, as well as ensuring the production techniques are environmentally friendly and zero waste through the process. Whilst it’s very much a part of the process of the creation of her designs, they are incredibly stylish and desirable so very much for anyone looking for laid back luxe. You can read more about the story of Minna here.
Who wouldn’t want to elope or walk barefooted in the sand in one of these? Definitely for the free spirited and stylish bride. Beautiful! You can see the full bridal range here or you can make an appointment to visit the showroom in Brixton, London.
