I am always on the lookout for new designers, and my efforts of late have led me to discover Russian bridal fashion designer, Tatiana Kaplun, whose glamorous, romantic designs I know that many of you will love.

“We wanted to illustrate how this level of effortless glamour can be achieved without loosing the essence of luxury and elegance – and highlight how embracing ‘less’ on the day can feel so much like ‘more’, combined with the emotions present.”

“We wanted to avoid creating an editorial that felt too minimalist however, so introduced some subtle, key notes on the decoration and within all the visual elements: decorated hand made plates and un-usual floral compositions, for example.”

“The sleek, effortless-looking dress had the perfect amount of ruches on the sleeves and shoulders to make it pop and stand out — and Martina looked just perfect in it.”

“That same upgraded minimalism was present in the bride’s hair and makeup with the small crystals, as well as in the gorgeous rings that featured raw stones.”

“The flowers used were elegant orchids with a touch of wild and wooden pieces that recall the real essence of nature.”
