Belle & Bunty – 4 Different Bridal Looks To Inspire You

I adore Belle & Bunty, founded by designers Hannah and Alice, this modern bridal fashion brand manages to perfectly mix a sense of elegant, playfulness, sexy and demure all at once, and it does so with a huge injection of flirtatiously British attitude. If you’re not yet following their Instagram feed – pop on over today to take a look and you’ll see what I mean.

We’ve been supporting Belle & Bunty for several years now – it’s been a joy to watch their lovely brand grow and to share weddings like these ones where the bride chose to wear one of their charming gowns.  I was delighted when Hannah shared these particular images with me recently, not least as the models happen to be the designers themselves (Hannah is the blonde, Alice the brunette). Don’t they look fab? Knowing them as well as I do too, I can just imagine how much fun they both had on this photoshoot. Despite their super model appearances, both these ladies are super, super down to earth, approachable, warm and friendly and absolutely love working with brides of all kinds to help them look and feel beautiful on their wedding day. It’s a treat to see them both strutting their stuff in front of the camera this way – photographer Margarita Karenko has done such a wonderful job of capturing the spirit of this collection and personalities of the designers behind it.

Headpieces by Clara Francis

The images came about through a collaboration with Dune (spot those pretty pastel pink heels ladies) but also feature headpieces by Love My Dress favourite Clara Francis. Hannah and Alice worked on styling 4 separate and distinct looks, that we hope will very much appeal to and inspire some of you today.

The looks showcase a modern bridal separates look, a more traditional and classic look, a bohemian/1970’s inspired bridal look and finally, a look inspired by the tradition of something blue. Take a look ladies and let me know which is your favourite style. Over to you Hannah and Alice!


Look one showcases the Belle & Bunty bridal separates, for a contemporary fashion forward bride who is keen to really stamp her individuality onto her outfit choice.

Separates have a brilliant way of making a wedding look effortless chic plus the styling opportunities are endless.

Alice (brunette) wears the Pearl Cami, Belle Skirt and beaded sash all by Belle & Bunty, gold floral sandals by Dune and gold bag by Dune, star headband by Clara Francis.

Hannah (blonde) wears Lace Dolly Top with camisole, sash and Scarlett Skirt all by Belle & Bunty, pink lace sandals by Dune and cream bag by Dune, headband by Clara Francis.


Look two‘s dresses epitomise everything we love at Belle & Bunty: soft tailored shapes that work with your body, feminine dresses that are timeless and classic. Mixing silk chiffons, silk crepes, embroidery and French laces.

Hannah (below) wears The Blossom Dress by Belle & Bunty, pink suede shoes by Dune and gold box bag by Dune, floral headband by Florrie & Eve at Belle & Bunty


Look three taps into a fashion trend that has been around for a few seasons and is now trickling into the bridal stratosphere ~ 70’s. Our 2016 bridal collection tapped into this trend and we’ve been longterm fans of the era with its carefree, boho vibe so have worked this into a romantic, relaxed wedding day look with all 70’s must have accessories. Raffia wedges, check. Floppy hats, check. Round oversize sunnies, check. If you are looking for a bridal look that pushes the boundaries and subtly nods to fashion trends then this is for you.

Hannah (below right) wears the Mae Dress by Belle & Bunty, wedges by Dune London, mini duffle bag by Dune London, hat by Asos, pineapple necklace by Clara Francis and a long pendant by H&M


Look 4 is for those superstitious brides amongst us. It comes from the Old English rhyme {you know the one ~“Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”} and signifies good luck charms for your big day. Rather than a clunky garter we’ve opted for Dune London‘s beautiful shoes as a modern take on a traditional idea.

Hannah wears Lace top  & Petal Skirt by Belle & Bunty, shoes by Dune London, bag by Dune London, cream flower headpiece by Florrie & Eve at Belle & Bunty

The pointy Alia shoe (right) is sassy with is snake print and soft silvery blue shade and would look equally awesome after your big day teamed up with distressed jeans.

The cute as can be Bambi has us gushing over its dolly round toe and jewelled bow detail.

Did you spot something you absolutely love? I really hope so.
