We’re often asked if we love our jobs and the answer is “ab-so-flippin-lutley”, and who wouldn’t – working in a ‘happy’ industry with a whole host of talented creatives and truly loved-up couples – we’re quite literally in wedded bliss every day of the week!

A certain highlight of the year so far has to be a trip we took to Barcelona back in April for the city’s Bridal Fashion Week, to view the brand-new collections by some of the top Spanish designers – and my god, do these people know how to put on an impressive catwalk show. Forget a simple runway and rows of benches, we’re talking incredible, large-scale productions with the most amazing props, styling, models, lighting and music. And as if all that wasn’t enough – there was, of course, the dresses, which wowed to the max – giving us an exclusive first look of what’s to come in bridalwear over the coming year. So, ladies, you can trust us when we say that those of on the dress hunt are in for a real treat!

One of the most highly anticipated catwalk shows of Bridal Fashion Week is by our Sponsor, Spanish design power-house, Pronovias. Year on year this show is a huge talking point as the team raise the stakes time again to deliver a dazzling and unforgettable show – and they certainly didn’t disappoint this time round.

Held at the city’s Italian Pavilion, some 1,500 guests from around the world, including celebrities, media, international and Spanish socialites, influencers and boutique owners, gathered for the unveiling of the 2019 Atelier Pronovias Collection created around an ‘In Bloom’ concept.

With the dresses inspired by new beginnings the show set was a mesmerizingly-beautiful garden scene, complete with flourishing botanics, trailing florals and flowing trees as well as an impressive stone pavilion, arched structures and even a pretty wooden bridge over a stream-like pond.

We were already hugely-impressed, and this was without sight of a single bead or thread of silk. But then came the dresses, which wowed and delighted in equal measures, offering something to suit the dreams every bride.

Showcasing dresses with maxi volumes in dreamy princess styles; revamped yet effortlessly feminine empire cuts and A-line silhouettes; plus, gowns with simpler lines and straight silhouettes, the clever collection is said to “dress every kind of woman and enhance her beauty”.

Furthermore, the range gives brides the option to switch up their big day look with convertible designs featuring detachable and off-the-shoulder sleeves, and yokes.
