Making an entrance: Backless Valentino lace dress by Caroline Castigliano

We were spoiled for choice for our autumn/winter fashion shoot, but our theme was clear – pure glamour gowns and dazzling details to ensure the bride will shine.

All our gowns featured here are from Caroline Castigliano, the leading London couturier, and our venue is the fabulous ballroom of The Langham, Regent Street.

Our fabulous selection of dresses include peplum ballgown shapes, as well as elegant form-fitting styles. Exquisite detailing is a hallmark of this season, with elegant lace and more than a touch of sparkle on both gowns and details such as belts.

The right details are essential – and we have diamonds from De Beers, wedding heels by top London designers Emmy London and Freya Rose and additional jewellery by Caroline Castigliano. Our flowers are by leading floral designer Wild at Heart, also based in London.
