If there are two things Pronovias knows how to do well (read: outstandingly well) it is how to put on a show and how to make a beautiful dress.

Closing Barcelona Bridal Week with a bang, the Spanish bridal brand pulled out all the stops. Their models included Karolina Kurkova, Constance Jablonski, Sigrid Agren, and Kristina Romanova; sitting front-row were Bar Rafaeli and Camila Alves (aka Mrs Matthew McConaughey) and it was a very special show too, for this year they celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Flamenco flair entered the bridal world through Juana Martin's bridal designs. Het couture approach is clear to see, as is the skill of her Atlier, particularly in the execution of those gorgeous gowns.

Carla Ruiz's collection - titled 'True Love' - looked nostalgically to the golden years of Hollywood for inspiration. Katharine Hepburn and Grace Kelly were her muses.

Although the bridal collection was small, they were complemented by pretty eveningwear options in sweet pastel shades.

Let's hear it for the boys! Let's hear it for Miquel Suay and Fuentecapala - both designers brought groomswear to the catwalk.

Miquel Suay's groom is dapper; he likes an evening jacket and doesn't mind a material with shine. Even his more 'traditional' groomswear had a high-shine waistcoat underneath.

By contract, his bride is rather demure; she prefers sleeves and camisole gowns. Only the make-up - vampish dark lips and smokey eyes -paired her with those flashy gooms.

Fuentecapala's men are of two extremes: the very traditional and the very alternative. Morning and three-piece suits are beautifully tailored while more creative prints and quirky bowties make for very stylish grooms, indeed.  So stylish they can even pull off a printed trouser and a velvet jacket…

'Lightness' was the order of the day at Cabotine. Designer Gema Nicolas starter her show with a few bridal gowns - simple, pretty and classic - followed by her brightly coloured eveningwear.

Like many other designers to show evening designs, she went for a colour scheme of hot pink and coral, adding jade green and turquoise to the fold.

Finishing off her show were a number of shimmering gowns in metallic tones, including gold, silver and a very pretty rose gold. These may not have been designed as wedding dresses, but they certainly seem very apt reception dresses.

Sonia Pena is another designer to bring a touch of glam to proceedings. Her eveningwear is mostly short, very dazzling and occasionally feathered. A matte colour scheme of pale pinks, metallic lilacs and crisp white is only broken up by a few vibrant and turquoise numbers.

Patricia Avendano also featured eveningwear as part of her collection, as well as a few bridal gowns. These were classically pretty deigns. Heavy brocades and a seemingly laser-printed skirt are more interesting than their lace counterparts.

It is a shame Hannibal Laguna's gowns aren't sold in the UK, but a trip to Spain would be worth it just to see these beauties in person.

Each gown was inspired by a flower - the cheerful grace of a lily, the rosy glow of magnolias and the dramatic elegance of lilies.

Pink gowns featured once more, but it is the structure and execution that is most note-worthy. Clean lines, precise cuts and structural necklines make for seriously stylish gowns.

And that is the beauty of them: they are deeply stylish. They aren't traditional but don't pretend to be modern or allude to 'alternative' brides - they are simply beautiful.

Basque designer Isabel Zapardiez invoked the mysterious allure of mermaids and took inspiration from the movement of the sea for her new collection.

Starting with a number of moonlight blue creations, the draping and textures of the designs really do make you feel as though you are looking out to sea; the soft movement of the waves, the foam created from the crushing waves, the gentle glint of seashells - it's all there.

The bias-cut designs do enter the white territory, maintaining those marine motifs.    

Anna Torres presented her eveningwear collection straight afterwards. Hers was a more city-ready collection in bright corals, pinks and pastel blue.

The only French brand to feature in Barcelona Bridal Week's line-up, Cymbeline's collection was precisely what we would expect: romantic, chic and empowering.

The most empowering of all gowns were the pink creations, ranging from the palest of quartz to a nude rose and a hot fuchsia, too. These had a very Dior feel to them - strapless, dropped waist and bow accents abound, while high-low hems and sexy fishtails also feature prominently.

Edith Piaf's 'la vie en rose' only tinted a few of the gowns however, the rest of the collection taking on the sultry, sexy, sophisticated feel of the iconic song, instead.

Chantilly and Calais lace is the most romantic of all, and the hair - deep side partings, slicked back at the crown of the head and with unruly curls from the ears downs - and pale pink lips added beautifully to je ne sais quoi-feel of the designs.

Finishing off today's shows were Inmaculada Garcia and Marco & Maria's shows; both deeply nostalgic but in very different ways.

Inmaculada Garcia's collection took the classic shapes and silhouettes of the 18th, 19th and 20th century and translated them into bridal terms. The result may be a bit too costume-like for some, but there is no denying that there are plenty of brides-to-be out there who share that fantasy.

Marco & Maria's show on the other hand took on the dream world of fairytale gowns and gave them the couture treatment - much in the same way YolanCris did earlier today. Rather than taking elements of the couture shows as the sisters at YolanCris did, M&M's dresses were rich in delicate detailing, saccharine sweet shades of pink grey and gold and light-as-air volume.

The sister team behind YolanCris, Yolanda and Cristina Perez, paid homage to the world of haute couture with their latest collection. Borrowing elements from the couture shows - including the white butterfly details from Alexis Mabille and Chanel's twin brides - the sisters managed to make it all very 'them'.

Opening their show was a short dress - a rare occurrence in the bridal world - with a lace neckpiece, three quarter-length sleeves and matching lace sandals.

Their boho-chic bride, as always, was at the forefront of their designs; and so she should be - she has become their signature style.

Bat-wing sleeved tunics, asymmetric skirts and peek-a-boo transparencies ruled supreme. The biggest hit of all was the 'Cherokee' bride with her feathered tunic and bright orange lips.

Victorio & Lucchino's designers were in a sexy mood, and it shows in their new collection. Last season their bride was conservative and had a penchant for dramatic veils and high necks; this season she is much more laid-back and has an easy elegance about her.

Pastoral make-up so natural it was practically inexistent, was matched with equally simple up-dos: braids worn over one shoulder or tight, low buns accessorised with red carnations and pearl pins.

The designers drew inspiration from their native Andalucia, which is famously the meeting ground of Catholic, Arab and Jewish traditions. In the same way that area of Seville has its own rhythm, so the new bridal gowns fused different design ideas and fabrics.

The delicacy of the draping was the true crowning glory of the design duo: falling from the shoulders and leaving backs relatively naked for instant goddess-appeal.

Lace detailing framed necklines and made for the most beautiful of sleeves.

Merche Segarra merged the worlds of bridal gowns and fragrance together at the Jesus Peiro show today.

Perfume - as the collection was aptly named - reflects the new scent, created by the bridal label.

Citrus, caramel and musk notes waver between fresh and sweet, as do the gowns themselves. Fluid silhouettes in A-line and empire styles are flattering and effortlessly pretty.

Dazzling embellishments - particularly in the finale gown, a rich ivory dress with golden bugle beads, delicately arranged to look like exploding fireworks at the neck and waistline  - add real pizzazz, too.

Rosa Clara started off the celebrations at Barcelona Bridal Week with a very sophisticated collection.

SEE THE FULL ROSA CLARA 2015 COLLECTION HERE

Leaving her slinky designs firmly in the past, this season is a return to the Rosa Clara classics: full-bodied, big skirts. 

MORE ROSA CLARA WEDDING DRESSES

Inspired by New York City, the 2015 collection is perfect for Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Annie Hall and Carrie Bradshaw fans.

Soft silhouettes with clean lines and classic tendencies are the main focus, with make-up kept simple and minimal, hair elegantly tied back into tight chignons.

Bows and floral accents are used sparingly for extra drama - mostly cinching in at the waist or accentuating the hips - and veils are totally ignored.
