Claire Pettibone wedding dresses are simply gorgeous. They combine a vintage feel with modern silhouettes and a bohemian spirit that gives them the most unique romantic quality.

In particular, we love the detail, clever use of colour and total individuality of Claire’s designs. You’ll find the full range of Claire’s designs on her site, and there really is something to suit every bride, but stay with us for a moment longer and take a closer look at four of our favourites, chosen for their fabulous detailing and their free spirited vibe, we know you’ll love them just as much as we do.

The Shangri-La Dress

The inspiration for this dress is Shangri-La – a beautiful imaginary place where life approaches perfection and what an apt name as it’s one divine dress!  The multi coloured embroidery on this dress is layered over gold lace, and looks simply stunning.

The illusion neckline and back lead to the Guipure lace fitted waist, and flow to the graceful skirt embellished with fringe dangle lace.

Maia Gown

The delicate floral embroidery on the Maia gown reminds us of the most beautiful English country garden with it’s scattering of pale pink roses and light blue hydrangea decorating the whisper soft tulle.
