Art Deco has always been a key influence in bridal design, but this season there’s a renewed focus on elegant lines and jewelled embellishment to add glamour and glitz to wedding-day dressing

Art Deco is a perennial influence in bridal design, but this season it has a fresh twist with bold embellishment, metallic hues, sleek or flapper-style skirts and all manner of beautiful accessories. It’s a glamour injection for any style of wedding and, whether you choose to add Deco elements in shoes and jewels or shimmy down the aisle in a flapper gown, you will be both timeless and perfectly on trend
