Exclusive: Belle & Bunty Produce Beautiful Ivory and Cream Wedding Dress Collection…

Regular readers may remember that back in November last year, I wrote a feature about Belle & Bunty, an independent fashion label based in London, who have created a beautiful, glamour-drenched collection of seven floaty and feminine classic maxi dresses, which they were offering as a beautiful alternative to bridal wear.  The collection was known as The Magnficent Seven.

Today, I have a bit of an exclusive to share with you.  Belle and Bunty contacted me a few weeks ago to tell me that they were taking the most popular of their Magnficent Seven dresses, and producing them in the more traditional bridal colours of ivory and cream.

What a brilliant idea!

Hannah Coniam-Thompson, Creative Director at Belle & Bunty tells us more…

"These pieces are styles taken from our Made-to-Order Magnificent Seven range, but are now presented in bridal colours as we received such a great response to the initial collection.

We wanted to show how the dresses would look in Ivory and Cream so we picked the most popular styles and made them up to meet the demand and requests from our customers.

All the styles are sophisticated, timeless and elegant with our Belle & Bunty signature of gorgeous silk fabrics and feminine detailing. Each shape has a slight vintage feel, including my own wedding dress (The Bunty, below top) and my Business Partner and Co-Designer Alice's dress (The Belle, below 2nd down)…"

 "The dresses have been carefully designed for maximum comfort on your wedding day aswell as flattering key areas of the body and concealing others!

For this photo shoot, we wanted to make it dreamy, elegant and romantic to fit in line with the feel of the dresses…"

"The fabrics we used are a combination of silks to suit any bride wanting something a bit different from the strapless, full skirted traditional style.

We have The Belle in slinky, drapey satin which exudes 1930's Hollywood glamour, The Primrose with its sheer butterfly sleeves, perfect for a 1970s hippy wedding, The Bunty with its chiffon pleated waistband to cinch in the waist and full column skirt for a Grecian feel, The Estella with its asymmetric row of roses for the true romantics and The Willow which fits and flares in all the right places and never fails to flatter any figure…"

"The prices start at £745 and go up to £1650 depending on fabrics and colours and are available at our London Boutique. Its important to us to try and support British manufacturing so all styles are Made in England and can be made in 6-8 weeks so there are no lengthy order times which a lot of more last minute brides have also loved !

We can even rush something through in 4 weeks for those really last minute weddings!"


Elegance personified or what? I absolutely love these dresses and know from speaking to designer Hannah, how much passion and love has been poured in to creating these new bridal designs.
