The unveiling of Oscar de la Renta's new collection is always a special moment, regarless of whether or not there is a show.

We were without a show this season, but his gowns are as show-stopping as ever.

The new gowns are typically elegant, ethereal and beyond sophisticated. Intricate design features - lighter than air tulle, romantic ruffling and illusion necklines - feel accessible and wearable without losing that undeniable de la Renta charm.

Elizabeth Fillmore has a lightness of touch that is truly enviable - as well as covetable. Made for nymph brides with serene grace, her designs are more than delicate and celestial.

Antique metallic lace adds the right amount of shine, while elsewhere floral appliqués and a touch of beadwork reflect her inspiration with ease.

The palest of blue dresses adds in a bit of colour to the mix, while her delicate overlays adds layers of texture and drama; the result of both utterly bewitching.

Most charming of all is her modern slip dress with a sheer overlay decorated with blooming buds of roses, a slight geometric print and three-quarter length sleeves.

Australian designer Johanna Johnson wowed the American and international crowds with her sinuous silhouettes and signature Art Deco style.

Her designs are reminiscent of the golden days of the silver screen age and took inspiration from New York's architecture - specifically the Chrysler and Empire State buildings. The collection is built on the construction of embellished designed, panelled silk gowns, laces and metal silhouettes.

Her elaborate approach to bridal with undeniable red carpet allure is sure to be a hit with brides. We can't wait to see which gowns Browns Bride will stock in London!  

Meanwhile, at Carolina Herrera, wedding gowns reach new heights as higher and shorter hems open up Herrera's repertoire to a very different (and yet eternally stylish) bride.

The longest gown in her new lineup is an elegant tea length gown with a sheer organza border along the bottom which is to die for - but the res of her collection inches up to playful above-the-knee frocks. Most notabe of all is a sexy feathered number with sophisticated embellishments that bring to mind a modern flapper with heaps of class. It is impossible not to love each and every gown. And those hidden pockets are so practical too!

Temperley London's new collection, Iris, is also the largest to date from the British brand. 

"There is a full range of different styles, for different body shapes in Iris" explains designer Alice Temperley. "All designed with the aesthetic I believe in; elegant, feminine, ethereal and timeless."

Matching veils are as romantic and ethereal as ever, but most exciting is the addition of coats to her gamut. We are head over heels in love with her larger-than-life Rose skirt and evening coat and elegant Aralia evening coat.

There is also the Nepheli jumpsuit for the daring bride; its 70's-inspired, halter neck and wide legs echoing Bianca Jagger's boundary breaking bridal style.

Claire Pettibone has a way of bringing art to life through her floral gowns, and this season she's done it again.

SEE OUR LIVE SNAPS FROM CLAIRE PETTIBONE'S SHOW

Focusing on Dutch still life artist Rachel Ruyusch and her study of flowers, Claire translated 17th-century art with her signature floral details on subtle silks and laces gilded in gold.

The silhouettes were as delicate and breezy as ever; the keyhole and illusion backs as intricate. And that petal-strewn catwalk too, added to the romantic and behemian allure of the show. 

LAST UPDATED: 13 October 2013 at 5:20pm

Watters' new collection is named 'The Love Collection' and was inspired "by love being the very reason why weddings even happen." A bit obvious perhaps, but the collection itself was more fashion-forward than that.

SEE THE LATEST WATTERS COLLECTION IN FULL

Offering a range of silhouettes - from the slinky and sweet, to the larger princess gown and sexy fishtail dresses - each look was carefully curated by Vatana and her team to show a whole look, not just a dress or veil.

Most exceptional of all perhaps were the gold cuffs, worn on both arms, almost as a statement of strength. And the veils, made to match individual dresses are a testament to the attention to detail of the bridal label.

Celebrating 25 years in the bridal spotlight, Jenny Packham's show this season looked as though it was straight out of a fairytale. The twinkling, tree-lined catwalk set the scene for the British designer's most dazzling collection to date.

SEE JENNY PACKHAM'S LATEST COLLECTION HERE

The feel is ethereal, elegant and uncomplicated: these are dresses made for a princess (or duchess) with natural grace, easy elegance and effortless style.

Delicate beading adds a bit of sparkle and shine, but there is nothing over-the-top or attention-seeking here; Jenny knows her bride well and we all want to be her.

Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig drew inspiration from the allure of a secret garden for their latest thirteen-piece collection.

SEE MARCHESA'S LATEST COLLECTION

Handmade floral appliqués, re-embroidered lace and beaded detailing - as is usually the case with Marchesa designs - make for gowns that would melt the coldest of hearts. These dresses are the things wedding dreams are made of.

On to the undisputed queen of the bridal world: Vera Wang. Vera has never been one to shy away from colour (remember those deep red gowns?) and this season is no exception. 

SEE VERA WANG'S LATEST COLLECTION HERE

Fall 2014 is all about pink! Coral, cotton candy and peony pink, to be precise.

"Pink as sensual, pink as seductive, pink as dreamy, pink as sophisticated, pink as strong, pink as cool. Think pink!" proclaim the shownotes, and we're only too happy to acquiesce.

SEE OUR LIVE SNAPS FROM VERA WANG'S SHOW

Some of the ruched detailing (soft layers of floral appliqués, intricate vermicelli beading and dramatic folds) make the dresses look more like confectionary creations than gowns - no doubt thanks to the sweet colour scheme - but the drama, the elegance and the variety of Vera are all there. Bravo!

A red carpet favourite, Monique Lhuillier has an easy elegance that makes her a instant Hollywood and an aisle sweetheart. 

SEE MONIQUE LHUILLIER'S LATEST COLLECTION HERE

This season she shines ever bright with a collection that is opulent and light all at the same time.

Like last season, she has featured a number or short dresses - which no doubt will be adored by the city brides - but her designs have moved away from the crisp, decidedly modern feel of her previous collection.

Monique's bride is still modern, of course, but she has a romantic longing for a heritage feel, perfectly illustrated by her embellished ballgowns, particularly her strapless blush and halterneck dusty lavender-grey gowns. 

Also known for bringing sparkle to the red carpet and aisle is Reem Acra. This season she was inspired by travel, far-flung destinations and exotic beauties.

SEE REEM ACRA'S LATEST COLLECTION

The result? A dazzling array of feathery crowns, twinkling beadwork, dramatic ruffles and exquisite details. 

Our favourite of all is her way of making tulle seem like it is drenched in diamonds, yet light and floaty.

Making her American debut this season is Elizabeth Stuart, a designer we know well and love. 

The Nottingham-based designer's 2014 collection, 'A Red Carpet Romance' is all about timeless beauty and made from texture silk faille, glistening silk duchess satin and silk organza. 

SEE ELIZABETH STUART'S 2014 COLLECTION HERE

Her 2014 collection, 'A Red Carpet Romance', is all about timeless beauty and made from texture silk faille, glistening silk duchess satin and silk organza.

In her classic style, this is a collection that is as much about texture as it is about shape, and Elizabeth is a designer who celebrates the feminine form. The real stand out dresses in this collection are the sexy fishtails: both strapless and form-fitting, one with a golden finish and the other with a flirty peplum.
