Wedding season is fast approaching! Be the best dressed in these gorgeous guest dresses Read more »
The line-up of content at this season's Brides The Show is stronger than it's ever been before.
We've devoted seven pages in the September/October 2017 issue to telling you all about it, but I have reserved this spot to announce the very special guest we will be welcoming to our opening preview night on Friday 29th September.
I am so honoured to reveal that British couturier Giles Deacon - the designer behind Pippa Middleton's globally applauded and wonderfully elegant wedding gown - will be joining us to unveil his dedicated couture exhibition within Brides the Show.
Visitors will be able to step into his magical presentation of the perfect wedding party, a gorgeously bohemian English wedding day and a celebration of accessible eccentricity for the bride, her mother, her maids and her wedding guests.
'When designing a couture bridal gown, I always look for it to deliver a shared vision of myself and the client's desires, a sense of uniqueness and timelessness and a bride who is totally at ease with it, so she can concentrate on having the most wonderful day,' says Giles. 'In that sense, a wedding is the perfect occasion to consider a couture dress. It may be a once-in-a-lifetime purchase, but it comes with the knowledge that it has been made for you with craftsmanship and consideration that is second to none.'
Come and listen to Giles and I live in conversation as we discuss what goes into the making of a special bespoke gown, and gain an exclusive insight into how this great designer works. Then chat to Giles yourself as we invite you to join us at an intimate drinks party in the exhibition space.
Ask him about your big-day fashion dilemmas and gain his personal expertise and advice on how to create a look you'll love for a lifetime. 'Brides the Show is THE place to come and get inspired and to see the best of every aspect of a wedding day, from the planning to the flowers and, of course, the dresses,' adds Giles. And we hope to welcome you all there later in the year. Tickets are now on sale at bridestheshow.co.uk
As British Olympic diver Tom Daley and husband Dustin Lance Black's honeymoon approaches, the couple have for the first time shared their (franky, beautiful) wedding video of their big day in May.
With the video, Tom shared a touching message about same sex weddings:
'Our honeymoon feels like the perfect time to finally share our magical day. We know our wedding was only possible thanks to the brave work of countless people for generations before us, so in that tradition, we will donate any ad revenue from this video to the "LGBT+ Switchboard" and "It Gets Better" in hopes of making things even better for future generations.'
He added, 'We had such an amazing wedding day and want to also thank our amazing friends and family for making it so perfect.'

British Olympic diver Tom Daley has tied the knot! On Saturday 6th May 2017, the sportsman married his American fiancé Dustin Lance Black at Bovey Castle in Devon.
The romantic, historic venue is close to Daley's home town of Plymouth and with particularly stunning grounds, including mini waterfalls and stone bridges, it was the perfect wedding photo backdrop.
According to The Mirror, Tom got involved with every little detail, too, including flexing his baking muscles to make his own wedding cake.
Both Tom and Lance took to Instagram to share a snippet of their big day with fans, which revealed the pair said 'I do' in an outdoor ceremony in front of 120 friends and family, with London Gay Men's chorus playing the newlyweds out.
The couple wore matching Burberry suits, with Tom sporting a dapper burgundy shade whilst Dustin wore navy blue.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
