6 Designers with Bridal Collections to Swoon Over

A little round up of some of my favourite bridal wear collections by 6 amazing designers to keep on your radar..!

1. Emma Beaumont Atelier

The Cheshire and Manchester based- dress designer has completely taken over my saved Instagram posts. Her designs are just out of this world beautiful and so are the photographs from some of her most recent collections.

Emma specialised in couture sewing and garment construction during her training and established her own studio in 2012 in Knutsford.

Her dresses are a beautiful mixture of intricate details, lace and embellishments with modern cuts and a fresh look at some classic ideas. All Emma's dresses are made on site in the UK.

These first 2 dresses below are from The Dorford Collection, named after 17th century Country House and Cheshire-based wedding venue.

THOSE puffy organza sleeves and cinched waist. A beautiful short dress if you want something a bit different. There's also a stunning blue toned dress in this collection as well as the insanely intricate embellished number below.

Imagine this dress for a wild, beach wedding, running along the sand post ceremony, trail stretching out behind you.....! This full floral applique dress has a 4 metre long train, covered in thousands of tiny, individually-stitched daisies. I mean, beautiful! Detachable sleeves too - double win for getting stuck into your main course!
Then there's the beautiful Tabley collection (8 more beautiful gowns) with, I think...wait for it......my FAVOURITE dress of all time in the history of wedding dresses. I know. I see a lot of wedding dresses. Bold claim. But seriously, just take a glance above - the gorgeous silhouette, those beautiful layers of embellishment, that see through section and the long sleeves. UTTER DRESS PERFECTION. Click here for some more Emma Beaumont inspiration on a recent Love My Dress feature.

2. Danielle Frankel

If you're a bride feeling the pressure to ensure your wedding day outfit is a true investment rather than worrying it will only fit the bill for that one day, Danielle's label is the one for you. She's approached bridal fashion in a completely different way- looking at the way it fits within the fashion world as a whole and creating pieces that are made to be worn way past the wedding day itself. They are modern, flexible designs, looking at bridal fashion in a new light - bolder cuts and more of a masculine edge to her latest work. I'm in love with the design below based on an army jacket.

Danielle's designs are ready to wear collections (available on Net a Porter in the UK). You can read more about her latest collection here.

3.Halfpenny London

'Vintage inspired design for the modern bride.' Kate Halfpenny is one of the UK's leading luxury bridal designers....in fact, I'm hoping she's already been at the top of your list for a while now.

Most of the time when I spot a really beautifully-made dress with a slight twist on a classic, simple silhouette I can be sure it's Halfpenny. Kate and her team make both dresses and separates. I'm particularly loving some of the beautiful, delicate and detailed separate pieces, designed to be added or removed to the overall outfit as you wish for each different element of the day.

Such as this bow coat.


These designs are from the Songbird Collection.

Kate has also just launched her collection of bridesmaids dresses too.

4. Romancera Madrid - Ethereal | Romantic | Elegant

I mean Spaniards are always impeccably dressed, but even more so when it comes to weddings. These delicate designs are drawn up by a studio taking the fashion world by storm. The founder, Tamara Vazquez is a lawyer turned dress designer, having studied at London College of Fashion and drawn to the beautiful process of creating her own wedding dress, was then inspired to start her own label. Influenced by Spanish history and cultural movements such as The Renaissance, she's often researching fashion photography, cinema and theatre, taking inspiration from specific characters, models or artwork. Delicate organza features in a lot of her dresses and you get the feeling that wearing one would make you feel calm and totally at ease.

The perfect mix between vintage and modern and a fair show of puffy sleeves.

5. Zuhair Murad

This Lebanese designer has thoroughly made his stamp all over the world. 2020 was set to be the year of ruffles, feathers and puffy sleeves and his designs don't disappoint. He's been creating magical, sophisticated, statement designs since 1997 based on romanticism and sensuality.

This is his Spring 2020 collection - looking to Spanish Flamenco dancers and Iberian culture.
