An exclusive look behind the scenes of a WED2B photoshoot…
Dreamy flowers, an absolutely gorgeous country house location and plenty of stunning new wedding dresses, what more could you want to brighten your day?
So, if you feel like losing yourself in some heavenly wedding inspiration today, you’re in luck. Below we have a sneak preview of the latest WED2B photoshoot, revealing all the brand new dress designs we have coming into stores this season. Beautifully styled and photographed, we hope it brings a little wedding magic to your day. Enjoy!
The perfect backdrop
Our design team headed to majestic Turvey House, in Bedfordshire, on a lovely sunny day for our latest shoot. We couldn’t have had a better location, as this Grade II listed manor house is also a breathtaking wedding venue, surrounded by 150 acres of picturesque parkland that overlooks the attractive River Ouse.
The stunning flowers for the shoot came courtesy of Bedfordshire florist, Becky The Flower Bee. Her natural looking arrangements, in delicate pastel shades of whites, blues, peaches and more, were the perfect complement to the dreamy dresses. And, to capture it all, we also called on the expert services of wedding photographer Max Turner, who is well known for his beautifully informal and relaxed style of wedding photography.
And, of course, the dresses…
From our Signature collection we have a brand new selection of breathtaking sheaths, a fast growing bridal trend. Sheaths are a super versatile silhouette, as they’re light, flowing and very easy to wear. This fashion forward collection has added its own unique touch to the classic sheath, with details such as Marko’s distinctive botanical lace and statement train or Henri's eye-catching, cut-out lace.
Jessie’s ornamental beading gives this dress a striking luxury feel while Dion is equally exquisite. We’re also head over heel in love with Logan’s unique crossover back and on-trend tape lace. Enzo, on the other hand, is all about detailed embroidered lace, which runs from the straps to the edge of the magnificent hemline. For more stunning sheath designs, with a unique Signature Collection twist, make sure you check out Cobie and Stockton too.
Designs to suit every shape
For totally classic style in a wide range of sizes, our exciting new Bellami designs are the way to go. Brand new Novalie is a soft floaty A-line with an oh-so pretty illusion neckline and a beautiful illusion back. Try Cassia and Kezia too, for more sophisticated A-line silhouettes with the prettiest embellishment.
We have so many new design from our refined Anna Sorrano collection that it’s hard to know where to start! Should it be elegantly simple Sorrento or understated but unforgettable Bekkie? Traditional Louise, with its sumptuous lace, or striking Florian in shimmering Mikado fabric? Choices, choices!
This season, the Anna Sorrano collection’s subtle style really has surpassed itself. Elizavetta, an organza A-line with delicate shimmer, is absolute perfection for modern princess brides. Alternatively, Jennifer is an off-the-shoulder fit and flare with the softest tulle skirt. Then there's also delightful Winona, an intricate fishtail that comes in both soft ivory or flattering blush.
Georgina is the ultimate classic style and the perfect blank canvas for your choice of accessories, while Nina is a dreamy A-line with a sweetheart bodice and plenty of romance! If you’d prefer to keep it short and sweet, there’s also lovely Lola. Finally, we’ve had so many requests for this design feature that we know you’re going to love fabulous Mercy. There’s beautiful lace, a flattering silhouette and, most importantly, pockets. They’re a modern must-have!
A touch of sparkle to finish…
Our new designs wouldn’t be complete without that all-important sprinkle of glitz and glam, which is where our glittering Viva Bride range comes in. This collection is all about shimmer, fun and that essential touch of sparkle, and its new designs are no exception.
Jamie is a glamorous fit and flare that’s full of wow factor. You really will make an entrance in this extravagant beauty, with its plunging neckline and figure-defining shape. Lastly, we have Madaline, a dazzling A-line with a romantic sweetheart bodice, embellished with lace, sequins and more. Add to that the show-stopping lace hem and you really do have a heavenly combination!
