What do you get when you cross beautiful wedding dresses from across the globe, luxury Ruinart champagne, one top US bridal designer and the Professor Jimmy Choo OBE? One spectacular evening of wedding inspiration.
London-based boutique Les Trois Soeurs Bridal (lestroissoeurs.co.uk)specialises in everything from sophisticated bridal gowns to handcrafted, fashion-forward accessories. On the evening at The East Wintergarden in Canary Wharf (canarywharf.com/east-wintergarden), with the help of stylist Siouxsie and choreographer Paul Swaby, they created a beautiful catwalk show of stunning designs from bridal fashion houses including Amanda Wakeley, Alon Livne, Anna Kara, Anna Maier, Caroline Castigliano, Daalarna Couture, Jenny Packham, Lova Bridal, Oscar de la Renta, Philip Treacy, Temperley and Victoria Kyriakides.
What's more, Les Trois Soeurs bridal flew in US wedding dress designer Hayley Paige for her first UK appearance, showcasing her Fall 2017 collection, hot from the catwalks at New York Bridal Fashion Week. Plus, Brides editor Jade Beer presented a special Q&A with Hayley, so that guests could learn more about the designer's inspiration behind the collection.
The models looked like beautiful brides thanks to Bobbi Brown (bobbibrown.co.uk) pro make-up artists and hair stylists from Michael Van Clarke (vanclarke.com), and were all dripping in Tiffany & Co (tiffany.co.uk) jewels. Maison de Fleurs (maisondefleurs.co.uk) transformed the space with a gorgeous flower wall (selfie heaven!), as well as creating sensational head pieces worn by the models down the catwalk. Penhaligons perfume (www.penhaligons.com) made sure the show smelled divine by scenting the entire room.
Groom style inspo in the form of Henry Poole & Co (henrypoole.com) was also on offer, plus venue inspiration from Cliveden House (clivedenhouse.co.uk), as well as honeymoon ideas from Tamara Heber-Percy, founder of Mr & Mrs Smith mrandmrssmith.com).
Guests were welcomed with Ruinart champagne (ruinart.com) and canapes from one of Buckingham Palace's chosen caterers, Ampersand (ampersandcatering.co.uk). There was music from iconic star Earl and even a special VIP appearance from shoe guru Professor Jimmy Choo.
One lucky reader WON a Hayley Paige wedding dress with the opportunity to be styled by Hayley Paige in person.
