Just take a look at these gorgeous wedding dresses from the Stephanie Allin Bellissimo Collection. Rocking the dolce vita vibe, the collection is inspired by the effortless glamour of the French and Italian Cinema of the 1960’s.
Whilst the Bellissimo Collection isn’t Stephanie’s most recent, we’ll bring you that soon, we wanted to share it with you as it resonates so strongly with our love of all things Italian. For more on that, do check out our Italian Weddings and Italian Honeymoon Pintrest boards as they’re stacked with so much inspo.
For now though, we’ve chosen our six favourites from the Bellissimo Collection.
The Vania wedding gown strikes the perfect balance between glamour and romance and simply oozes style.
With a French embroidered and beaded lace bodice and delicate shoulder detail, it’s styled here with a detachable silk tulle train. Perfect for destination weddings.
The Garda Trousers are a modern way to dress for your wedding. The accentuated wide leg is both sophisticated and glamorous and has more than a hint of old style Hollywood panache. The trousers are made from a flattering heavy crepe back satin which hangs so well and moves beautifully, with a narrow duchesse waistband and fixed with a single button and zip.
Rosetta is such a beautifully romantic dress, a sheer silk organza overlay with soft pink roses gently skims a sweetheart straight fitted underdress.
The organza overdress has a bound satin edge around the neckline and sleeve and has a wonderful ethereal quality when lifted in the breeze.
If you’re looking for a delicate body skimming gown, then the Annabel is perfect. This beautiful soft pink fitted gown, made from heavily beaded lace is designed to be worn with or without the detachable train and shrug, which means you can be as covered as you wish, adding a chic twist through your day. The sweetheart neckline and lowered back create a timeless silhouette.
The Demi gown is such a wonderful way to add some understated sparkle to your big day. The fitted beaded bodice is paired with a floaty chiffon skirt to provide the perfect balance between sophistication and romance.
The delicate circular chiffon skirt, with a heavily beaded georgette ‘V’ neck bodice are the perfect combination to see you right the way through your big day and the skirt is just made for dancing the night away. The bodice is also available un-beaded should you wish to create a more pared down look.
The Flavia gown has a form fitting sequinned and embroidered tulle bodice with spaghetti straps. The skirt is crafted from delicate flowing chiffon set at an empire line, creating such a flattering elongated silhouette.
If you wish to feel more covered for your ceremony, the Flavia also has a matching sequinned tulle shrug, allowing you to add a lightweight, modern and romantic layer.
We hope you love the Bellissimo collection as much as we do and we’ll bring you more from the super talented Stephanie Allin just as soon as we can.
