It’s no secret that I am a fan of a destination wedding. Above is a picture of me and my husband back in 2014 at our wedding in South Africa - it was the best day of our entire lives (I’m confidently speaking on his behalf) haha!
When searching for my dress, I must admit I didn’t think about the practicality of getting it half way across the planet. Luckily and rather conveniently I found a dress that was hugely conducive to transport as it was made of chiffon. Light, floaty, no creases - perfect!
When I opened my bridal shop in Surrey in April 2018, I wanted to have a good selection of unique dresses for brides getting married in all corners of the world - home and away. These are a list of my TOP TEN DESTINATION WEDDING DRESSES for brides getting married abroad on the beaches of Australia or the snowy mountains of Switzerland. These gowns travel easily, move with the breeze and have a distinctly relaxed and bohemian feel.
A truly spectacular A-line halterneck wedding dress made of oodles of pleated chiffon and stunning lace. Named after a chain of islands we’d quite happily call home, FIJI is our top choice for a destination wedding. This ethereal wedding gown is floaty, whimsical and truly exquisite - ideal for a wedding on a beach, up a mountain or in the woods.
KEMBLE is our chiffon and sparkling lace gown by Ella Rosa. A stunningly beautiful bodice with an exquisite sheer lace back and buttons all the way down the skirt, KEMBLE is ideal for a summertime wedding. This graceful chiffon skirt ripples like waves breaking on a shoreline whilst the delicate beading across the bodice sparkles in the light.
DEMETRIA also features in our BEST BOHEMIAN WEDDING DRESS blog as she is so light, relaxed and elegant. She is an ideal dress for transport as she is light and compact. Her chiffon skirt and bodice can be folded and placed in your car or hung in an aeroplane with ease and all she’ll need is to be hung straight for a few days and her creases will drop straight out. No sparkles, no bling, just stunning lace and an incredible cut. Perfection.
FEATHER is a sexy fitted gown with wonderful movement and beautiful boho detailing. The delicate vines and florals cover her sheer bodice and down the skirt dancing above the intricate and contemporary lace beneath. A plunging front and a low V back are super chic and the luxuriously soft tuille train is light and delicate. Finish your look with a chic bridal cape and you’re ready for your wedding in Provence amidst the vineyards.
Another pleated chiffon skirt, this time with an exquisite bodice and beautiful cap sleeves. Elegant, simple, pretty and sweeter than honey, BLOOM is the epitome of destination wedding glam. Couple this adorable boho wedding dress with a savage flower crown and fierce make-up and float down the aisle on your faraway beach.
BLAKE is a little naughty and a little sassy but ultimately is a contemporary twist on a classically elegant and beautiful bridal gown. This long-sleeved wedding dress is now available in our Surrey bridal shop and for me, BLAKE is a vision in the South African bush wedding with rustic florals, jagged foliage, dark plum and burgundy colours and would be ideal for a cooler climate. Dress her up or down for a country bumpkin celebration or a lush ski resort wedding.
ELENA is joining our LUSH CURVE collection in autumn 2019 and will be available from a UK4 to a UK34 so everyone can benefit from her beauty! Her stunning and distinct pattern, high neck and low back, soft and romantic tuille to add whimsy to this striking design. Elegant sleeves are ideal for a winter or spring wedding vacay in Europe or the U.S. Dreamy, elegant and uber feminine.
The elegant and sophisticated DOROTHY has PARIS written all over her! Hell, anywhere in France! She is hopelessly chic and transcends bridal tradition in favour of relaxed European glamour. Her stunning bow-tie neck and open back with her understated skirt is perfect for strolling down the Champs de Elysee en route to a fabulously chic Parisian restaurant. Or staying a little closer to home, DOROTHY is perfect for a classy London wedding for any hopelessly chic London brides.
New to our collection, DARWIN is elegant, chic and dripping from head to toe in a unique design of lace. It is a contemporary vintage design in that, it is so delicate and feminine in a vintage style with a slightly contemporary twist. A sexy silhouette and a scoop back complete this chic and classically beautiful gown. Perfect with an overstated dramatic veil for an Italian wedding.
EMMA also made our TOP TEN BOHO WEDDING DRESS list and as you can see, she can work for lots of different styles of celebration! EMMA is lightweight, delicate and utterly charming. She is available in ivory but I love her original mocha design. It makes the unusual and bohemian style lace stand out. She’s fitted and daring without being too naughty! Good vibes all around with EMMA as your dress.
