Last week I had tea with Johanna Hehir, the chic London bridal designer, at her Chiltern Street store, to go over her new autumn/winter 2011 collection to be launched this May. Look out for plenty of pretty lace designs in her signature Thirties aesthetic - extremely feminine and very, very pretty. Other fabrics include georgette, tulle, silk satin, and also lots of beading and embroidery to give dresses that extra touch of something special.

Hehir says her favourite celebrity to dress in general is Emily Blunt as she always looks "so stylish and really brings together the vintage and contemporary looks". Asked who she would like to dress as a bride and she says Emma Watson 'because she is a classic English Rose, naturally beautiful with her own quirky sense of style - a bit like my dresses!" In general the new collection is for brides who are confident and have their own unique style that they bring to the short, expect to see great things! Prices from £1,500. Find out more at
