Matthew Williamson Bridal Event

 Matthew Williamson Bridal Event

I was lucky enough to win tickets to Matthew Williamson's bridal collection event hosted by You and Your Wedding magazine.

 The staff were so friendly! I loved this girl's Matthew Williamson dress, with an amazing backless drape!

 I got side-tracked from the bridal dresses when I saw this sparkly number!

Guests were treated to cupcakes and cocktails and  Matthew Williamson's stunning debut bridal collection and honeymoon line.

Black skinny jeans - Topshop
Black shoe boots - New Look
Skinny belt - H&M

  My sister and I at the cocktail bar, obviously!

 Cocktail hour!

I loved the bridal collection! The dresses had richly embellished natural fabrics and feminine shapes which would look beautiful on any bride walking down the wedding aisle. 

 Asymmetric silk tulle gown embellished with feathers

The collection had a range of styles, from draped silk dresses, backless bridal dress and beaded gowns there was a dress for every bride!  Although some of the more bohemian style dresses were not my favourite, I really liked the pretty bejewelled empire lines, particularly the asymmetric gowns. 

My favourite was definitely the asymmetric silk cocktail feathered dress - perhaps dress number two for the evening reception?!

Not only were guests treated to models showcasing the dresses but also Bobbi Brown makeover team, hairstylists and styling experts were on hand throughout the evening to offer tips and ideas for brides-to-be. There was also a bridal shoe collection, Harriet Wilde, independent footwear label by designer Ruth Shaw.

I fell in love with the flower petal heel peep toes which are part of the new exclusive collection that will be launching at the end of November at Harrods.

 Cake Parlour by Eve Clark - yummy!

I loved the cake displays and flowers, which gave me ideas and inspiration for my own wedding. We were also given fantastic goodie bags full of treats such as Elemis handcream, Opi nail polish and Michael Van Clarke volumising mouse.

 Goody bag!

A big thanks to You and Your Wedding magazine for the invitation - it was lovely to view Matthew Williamson's collection and mingle with all the brides-to-be!
