British designers, both established and emerging, have a creative flair like no other. Whether you’re opting for an elegant traditional look or going for the edgy coolness that’s always popular with UK brides, the following British bridal designers are certain to provide you with plenty of food for thought.
Let’s start our rundown with a British bridal designer that’s got a longstanding reputation – Jenny Packham.
Jenny Packham’s latest bridal campaign offers sensational look after sensational look, providing bridal wear with a modern and romantic twist, as well as calling on inspiration from eras gone by.
You’ll find a varied collection, including stunning high necklines, bejewelled bodices, beautiful tulle numbers, floor-length bridal capes, and touchable cover-ups that are perfect for winter weddings.
Hermione de Paula
Recently featured in our up and coming bridal designers to look out for list, London-based Hermione de Paula has made quite the name for herself since being mentioned in our blog post.
Her latest collection, aptly named ‘Garden’, uses sustainability, timeless design, and the natural world, to provide iconic bridal looks. Her signature style – Hermione is well known for her use of hand embroideries and hand-painted prints – is brought to life with the botanically inspired creations.
With some 27 years of experience, Caroline Castigliano is a major player in bridal design. Her latest collection goes back to basics with clean lines, decadent fabrics and signature silhouettes made for the modern bride.
Caroline’s designs are always a celebration of luxury, with their ultra-feminine look providing a romantic feel that’s always on-trend amongst brides.
“The fashion set – from Vogue editors to Net-A-Porter buyers – go to Charlie Brear for her fun, vintage-inspired wedding dresses that are quite literally, made for dancing. The label began almost 15 years ago when, as a fashion stylist, she had some leftover vintage wedding dresses from a music video she needed to sell. The demand was huge, everyone wanted dresses just like the antique ones she’d sourced. And thus, a brand was born.”
Her latest collection is cool, contemporary, and uses various silhouettes to challenge what the modern-day bride should look like. You’ll find various shapes and styles as a result, including jumpsuits, co-ords, capes, and knee-length gowns.
Another favourite on the bridal wear scene and a label we adore is Sassi Holford. Designer Sassi is well known for her luxury designs and is herself an icon of British style. She’s also well regarded for dressing A-list celebs and royalty, which means you’ll be in good hands when shopping for a wedding gown.
Her latest collection, ‘Asteria’, uses an array of different fabrics to create some stunning bridal looks. Each design is timeless and elegant as well as dreamy and inspired.
