Bridal fashion at its best, our spring/summer bridal fashion story celebrates great British style, with both star names in the world of bridal gown design and bespoke wedding gown designer-makers every bride-to-be should know. We’ve kept the theme of British style for accessories too, with gorgeous bridal shoes, jewels and accessories from UK talents.

With such a glittering array of bridal fashion greats, we chose the perfect backdrop for our shoot – Holmewood Hall. This glamorous exclusive-use wedding venue, newly opened as part of Country House Weddings’ portfolio of gorgeous country manor houses, features everything you’d want for a timeless wedding in the English countryside – fine grounds, awe-inspiring spaces for both ceremony and celebration and the most sumptuous bridal suite imaginable.
