A behind the scenes look at the London Bride & Otaduy Bridal special bridal showcase last month. We were thrilled to invite readers and brides to this intimate event to try on dresses and chat and be inspired by some of our wedding industry friends! 

Otaduy Bridal and London Bride Event

Part of why I love working in this industry is getting the chance to work and collaborate with like-minded, creative and modern thinking wedding colleagues. It pushes the industry in the right direction and just bouncing ideas, inspiration and swopping stories is really refreshing.

Having been a fan of Barcelona bridal designers, Otaduy and their gorgeous London showroom, we decided to collaborate and hold an intimate bridal event to showcase their new collection, meet with brides (and readers of London Bride!) and also to introduce them to some fabulous wedding brands, suppliers, designers and makers. It was so much fun to see bride’s try on potential contender dresses, with their friends and family with the added fun of trying on veils, shoes, holding a beautiful bouquet as well as be made-up all whilst in a relaxing and intimate atmosphere with delicious and cute mini bottles of sparkling wine courtesy of Cordoniu and refreshing and stylish hydration from Solan de Cabras. Definitely the way dress shopping should be!

As a wedding planner and blogger, it’s also really lovely for me to connect with bride-to-be’s to hear about their days and their styles and wedding inspiration and of course talking all about dresses!

Otaduy showcased their new ‘I Do’ collection, which you can see more of here but is inspired by the glamorous days of disco, and free-spirited style… Otaduy has a lovely balance of feminine dresses and cool separates (plus jackets!) that are for a modern boho bride and are perfect for both a city wedding or something a little more rural. We had a lovely mix of brides at the event who were getting married in the city, the countryside and a few destination weddings too (lucky them!).

Veils by AM Faulkner

To veil or not to veil? If you think a traditional veil isn’t for you then the playful pieces by London milliner AM Faulkner may be just the finishing touch to your bridal style from fancy floral, gold glitter and playful pom pom these are statement veils. 

Playful Cute Quirky Veils by AM Faulkner

I often end up having the conversation with my brides or friends getting married about ‘to veil or not to veil’ as I know it’s a common bridal quandry. In all honesty, the bad influence that I am, always say go for it, it’s the only time (ahem, we hope!) you’ll get the full romance and fun of wearing one and depending on your style there really is something for everyone. Many designers offer beautiful traditional veils, but I stumbled across AM Faulkner designs a few weeks ago and just had to share them as they offer something a little different which I think may work perfectly for those thinking a more traditional veil may not work for their bridal style.
