Tapping into the boho vintage vibe, the Maya wedding dress is so unique and utterly gorgeous.
Hand sewn silk flowers adorn this gown from top to bottom in shades of purple, grey, taupe, ivory and pink with accents of dark greens on a sand colored tulle gown. The dress is edged in a vintage style lace with a low back.
Bronte is a slinky form fitting dress with plenty of movement in the skirt and the bodice is an absolute darling; fitted satin to the front give you demure coverage whilst the sheer polka dot back adds a twist of the unexpected.
The top is edged with a delicate hand pleated frill and black velvet ribbon which extends and ties at the back.
The Harper is hand embroidered tulle gown for the non-traditional bride – a sheer tulle dress, worn over the Tillie slip and embroidered with appliques of red and pink flowers with green leaves.
The delicate applique design is accented on the bodice and just look at the dramatic V back with extra with tulle train, loose from the shoulder. Just imagine this in your photos billowing in the breeze.
Echoing the bodice, the full skirt features a flower applique hem, perfect for brides wanting to add colour to their gown whilst rocking a truly modern take on boho florals.
Paisley Crop Top
The paisley crop top is such a cute boho style crop, made from thick guipure lace with eyelash trim lace edging, an open back fastening with tassle ties.
Rocking the princess vibe but in such a contemporary way, the Charlie full tulle skirt comes with extra stiffness to stand out and make you feel like a real fairy tale bride. A full circle satin skirt is topped with four layers of tulle to make a wonderfully stand out skirt in every way. Charlie is available in a whole host of colours and we just love it.
Indie is such a delight of a dress featuring embroidered lace with nude tulle underlay. This dress is boho at it’s best! with loose sleeves and fitted embroidered bodice with deep plunge, small front opening and low V back. The skirt has a tulle overlay for extra softness and dimension.
Wow, the Bowie dress is such a showstopper.
The fabric has small tufts and an incredible drape making it extra unique. The deep V front plunge and open back add to the look and it has been cut with a full skirt modern length train and has a soft drape satin underlayer. Can’t you just imagine dancing the night away in this?
