Matthew Williamson Bridal comes hot on the heels of his successful spring/summer 2010 capsule collection for NET-A-PORTER.COM's Wedding Boutique, and will get its first public airing in front of buyers and wedding industry press at the White Gallery London in May 2011.

Fans of Matthew Williamson's main fashion line and eveningwear can expect more of his trademark bohemian style and gorgeously feminine shapes: "Matthew Williamson Bridal is a natural extension of the mainline eveningwear," says the label's spokesperson Fong Ee, "the pieces are characterised by a soft and feminine silhouette in richly embellished natural fabrics."

Besides a feminine silhouette, Matthew's signature embellishment will also ensure your bridal look has plenty of wow-factor. Fong Ee explains: "Elements of the designer's signature style, such as embroidery and intricate beadwork, are re-worked to create a collection with an elegant, yet bohemian spirit."

"The designs demonstrate a sense of opulence," she continues, "that befits such an important celebratory event. They also feature a high level of craftsmanship, which is evident through the fine embroidery, ornate beading and use of luxurious fabrics."

Sounds simply gorgeous - we can't wait to see the new collection next year!
