Vintage can be so refined – especially when it comes to fashion. But this season after-dark glamour and old-fashioned elegance come guaranteed with a new crop of bridal gowns that take their inspiration from the ballrooms and salons of yesteryear. With elegant high collars, scooped and plunging necklines, fitted bodices, flowing feature sleeves and more than a dash of Edwardian flair in some of the finer details, these are looks for brides who want to capture timeless wedding style. Accessorise with lace and ribbon-dressed shoes, a smattering of diamonds or a sprinkling of pearls.
