One of the joys, for me at least, of being a professional wedding blogger, is that I get to be amongst the first to find out about beautiful new bridal wear collections. I've always had a thing for a beautifully designed and elegantly constructed dress.
It always feels like such a privilege to be one of the first to see these glorious new creations, not least, what some of my readers might well be wearing over the coming months at their weddings. And I'm never disappointed by the gowns that designer Sally Lacock lovingly creates from her London based design studio.
I adore Sally Lacock and her fondness for Edwardian and 1920's inspired bridal wear. Sally was one of the first designer I turned to to ask if her gowns could appear in my book, Style Me Vintage Weddings, and I'm so proud that they did.

latest collection of effortlessly elegant bridal gowns builds on the
foundation of her signature and much sought after vintage inspired
style. Complementing her existing archive, the latest designs continue
to draw inspiration from past eras to dress today’s modern bride.
Celebrating her enduring love of precious French lace, the collection
reflects the decadent days of the 1920’s through to the bohemian
creativity of the Edwardian era. Adding to her timeless collection of
gowns, including the serendipity of Isadora and the relaxed, uncontrived
style of Violet, her latest offerings include Carly, a pretty and
modern take on the tea dress through to the sophisticated and fluid ‘30s
Using luxurious fabrics in antique hues, the
dresses, often adorned with exquisite glass buttons and hand stitched
flowers, convey the delicate nature and intricate beauty often found
only in vintage garments. Sally’s work embodies a lightness of touch
with modernity and a youthful attitude.
A hand picked selection of exquisite head pieces, ranging from berry
and blossom bridal garlands made by Emma Caderni to jewelled tiaras by
Cherished Vintage are also to be found in the treasure trove that is
Sally Lacock’s beautiful studio showroom.
Sally's vision, born out of
a respect for time-honoured skills combined with romantic vintage
appeal is reflective of the friendly, bespoke service based in her
delightful Dalston studio where with her small team she holds private
appointments. All the dresses are designed and cut by Sally herself and
hand made in London by highly skilled couture seamstresses.
