Another treat for Charlotte Balbier brides out there!

I love Charlotte Balbier. She’s one of the most exciting wedding dress designers in the UK right now, and wherever I turn I see brilliant reviews and a real buzz about her 2012 wedding dress collection.

Speaking of which…
wedding dress blog feature images by Jonny Draper (2)When I blogged the launch of Charlotte’s 2012 Candy Kisses wedding dress collection last month, it was thanks to lovely Manchester wedding photographer Jonny Draper that we got to see so many gorgeous sneak previews of the dresses. Remember – this was a trade launch, so officially (shhhhh…) no one else has seen them yet!

*not exactly his own words. I read between the lines…

If you’re a Balbier bride – and tell me if you are, I’d love to say hello! – the best place for updates is Charlotte Balbier’s facebook page. All the latest news about the website and new collection is on there and updated regularly.

And if you’re looking for a wedding photographer do have a look at Jonny Draper’s website and wedding photography blog. Jonny is most definitely an expert on Charlotte Balbier gowns, and he’s a lovely, friendly and dedicated wedding photographer. You’ll love him!

Jonny told me, “It was really exciting & an absolute privilege to be the first person to shoot Charlotte’s Candy Kisses Collection at the launch afternoon. The fashion show was the main focus of what I was shooting but I wanted to also use the amazing location of Great John Street to shoot some very cool images of the new collection to really inspire brides to be as to what these fabulous gowns looked like in and around a wedding venue.

“I’m a massive Charlotte Balbier fan & am always very excited when we work together as I know that Charlotte really commits to the creative side of things & really wants to push the boundaries of what is achievable (remember the shot of the girl in the rafters of Styal Lodge?!)

And as a bonus she’s brilliant fun to be around and work with!”

Have a gorgeous weekend everyone.
