This romantic collection was inspired by the grace and glamour of bygone eras and draws on the work of the Queen's couturier Norman Hartnell; think elegant ball gown silhouettes with sculpted waists and natural light flowing silks.
Is that headpiece below not gorgeous too? It is a design by the very talented Donna Crain who Naomi collaborated with on this shoot…

Naomi Neoh's designs will appeal to the more classic bride that is looking for something vintage inspired, something glamorous, something that whispers a little sexy but that screams elegant and chic.
I absolutely adore this tiered lace dress – this is possibly my favourite design in the whole collection – 'Lady Mary'. This dress design was inspired by the early 20th Century costumes worn by the heroine of Downton Abbey. It boasts the most beautiful delicate beaded lace and conveys a real essence of graceful elegance. Definitely my kind of gown…
Classic full skirts, fashioned from flowing fabrics are light to wear and ofer a soft, beautiful movement…
Chiffon is apparently Naomi's favourite fabric…
"…it moves with grace, swirls like a cloud and drapes beautifully. Brides will find the exquisite, flowing silks of my dresses sublime…"
All of Naomi's dresses are designed with hidden inner corsetry, to create that 'nipped in waist look…
"Our dresses are made with internal corsets to flatter and emphasise the waist and create a stunning silhouette. Our corsets are surprisingly comfortable; light yet strong, they allow the bride to feel 'hugged', supported and to adopt an amazing posture…"
Naomi uses the most luxurious fabrics and details for her dresses – think light floaty silk, French lace, silk flowers and subtle beading.
A colour palette of vintage tones, including shell blush pink and oyster and oyster shades offer something truly beautiful for brides not wanting to wear traditional white…
The Naomi Neoh studio is located at F11a Parkhall, 40 Martell Road, Dulwich, London, SE21 8EN.
