If, like me, you live in a rural area or outside of the major cities, you might find it difficult to make it to the big wedding fairs and catwalk shows. Local wedding fairs are a world apart from the big shows in London and the bridal catwalks around the country can be very different from each other, often depending on the organisers of the wedding fair. Today we have a front row seat from one of London’s busiest wedding shows at Bluewater – all images are by London wedding photographer Louise Bjorling.
Beautiful jewel necklines, lace, dreamy textures, soft layering and vintage inspired details can all be found in this year’s bridal fashion – next to styles that have a more fitted, ladylike Grace Kelly / Jackie Kennedy reminiscence to them. All kinds of hues are right for this season – rich and vibrant colours as well as more subdued shades.
The massive wedding fair and bridal fashion show at Bluewater – which brings together some of the best suppliers from London and the Southeast – is on twice yearly, with the next date set for 20 – 22 of September 2013.
