Its been a bit of a haute couture week at Brides Up North HQ. We’ve been at White Gallery London checking out the brand new bridal wear collections from the big names in the wedding dress industry and are really excited to bring you some exclusive catwalk previews direct from the event over the next few days. Fast fashion or what?!
I’m obsessed with Alan Hannah’s beautiful gowns, and actually wore one of Marguerite’s creations for my own wedding back in 2010 (the dress was called All The Jazz and was a blush duchess satin… swoon), so it makes sense to open play on these pages by debuting their label’s exciting 2015 collections first.
For their main line, as well as the perfect couture cut and execution Marguerite has some really lovely new embellishment ideas including hand painted flowers and striking textured beading. The MiaMia line is full of verve and panache with beautiful lace and dramatic skirts with theatrical detailing. For me, there’s something to delight every bride here – soft sparkle, lovely lace, swishing satins, structured silks and contemporary twists, but always with an integral elegance and flair.
And to top it all off? All Alan Hannah’s gowns are designed and made in England. You know we like things home grown at Brides Up North!
^^^Editor’s pick: this blush satin gown with chiffon skirts and crystal belt detail is to die for^^^
The 2015 collections will be arriving in bridal boutiques near you later this year. In the meantime, check out Alan Hannah’s current collection and a list of Northern stockists by visiting their website.

Astounded by the rapid growth of her blog and brand, Julia now manages Brides Up North’s online content alongside their busy wedding exhibition season, industry events and related commissions. And she’s always, always, got a new project on the go…
