Of all the posts I put together for these pages, the fashion features have to be my favourite.  I don’t know if it’s the result of a misspent youth pouring over the pages of Vogue or my early career days as a fashion gal in London, but I just can’t get enough of the dresses.  Especially when they are part of a brand spanking new collection by my very own long time Featured Supplier Charlotte (and her team) of Fable & Promise

I’ll let the talented lady explain for herself, as I sit here in a puddle of drool.  Major dress lust at Brides Up North HQ right now.  Major.

Charlotte says:  It has always been our ambition to design and create a full bridal collection and after an invitation to design a collection for Manchester Fashion Week we decided now was the time to take our dream and make it real.

We love creating one off designs for our bespoke customers. We adore the varied inspirations and eclectic design ideas, but bringing out our own collection has been one of the most exciting, rewarding and slightly indulgent processes we have ever had the pleasure of immersing ourselves in. To take all our ideas and influences, create embellishments and choose fabrics, colours and textures simply because we love them has just been amazing. 

The result is our Legend Collection; a series of three mini collections inspired by myth and folklore.

The Huldra are said to be the beautiful daughters of ‘the hidden people’ or forest sprits from Norse folklore. They are stunningly beautiful women with long blonde hair and flower crowns. The Huldra often try to disguise themselves but can never hide the fact that they are more dazzling than other women. The Huldra love music and their music is heard by hunters and sons of farmers who are drawn by their lovely singing. It is said that when a Huldra marries she becomes human and lives out her life with her human husband.

We wanted to capture the wild nature of the Huldra. We chose warm tones and very tactile textures. The seven Huldra; Aurelie, Fiylinn, Elysia, Rosalka, Orla, Lilith and Taiah, are untamed and natural; asymmetrical or jagged layers of tulle and chiffon over heavy lace and satin with copious amounts of handmade flowers and matching accessories.

We are really proud of the team we worked with on this shoot and absolutely love how everyone worked together to turn our ideas into reality.

Browsholme Hall was the perfect choice of venue. We had used the Tithe barn for our Birds of Prey shoot but we knew the stunning grounds with its old gardens and woodland would be perfect.

We worked closely with Kerry, Duncan and Rachel to create looks perfect for our collection; alluring eyes in aubergines, olives and golds with wild and loose tresses completed the looks brilliantly.

We absolutely love how Zoe of ZT Photography managed to capture perfectly the feel we wanted for the Huldra.
