One of the things I love most about wedding blogs is that we all share so many real weddings. It’s real life. You can flick through the first twenty pages of any wedding magazine and see models in wedding gowns, posed and beautifully lit… whereas on a blog you see real brides and grooms straight away. Our features thrive because of YOU! And what better way to introduce you to couture bridal designers The State Of Grace than to show you some of their beautiful real brides…
Chic silver screen bridal style
Tamsin married at the famous Savoy Hotel in true old school Hollywood style. She looked like a silver screen goddess. To suit the iconic venue, Tamsin and her husband sought something sophisticated but still sensual and playful in nature. Made with over ten metres of lavish Parisian silk with a suggestive cowl back and puddle train, Tamsin’s bespoke wedding dress took her husband’s breath away.

French vintage bridal style
Chic, Parisian girl-about-town Aliette and her beau decided on a Provencal vintage inspired wedding to bring the playful yet authentic nature of the French countryside to their guests and loved ones. Aliette wanted something delicate, simple and understated. The State of Grace therefore focused on a perfectly cut exquisitely fluid silk crepe fabric with the finest French lace appliqué creating a delightful ethereal femininity.

Gatsby grandeur bridal style
Andrew and Alison’s glorious 1920s art-deco inspired wedding took place on 3rd May 2013 at The Midland Hotel in Morecambe, Lancashire, chosen as a beautiful setting for their 1920s themed nuptials. The colours were exquisite – lavish smoky silver green silk with embellishments in antique ivories and soft silvers highlighted with peacock feathers, rhinestones and vintage crystals.

Modern theatrical elegant bridal style
Billowing, chiffon sleeves, exaggerated fitted cuffs with handmade crystal buttons, soft gathered silk and a glorious cowl back took Rebecca down the aisle and she looked gorgeous. Her matching hair and back jewels and earrings were all made especially for her and transformed her look entirely from daytime right through to the evening.

World class Eurasian couture bridal style
The team at The State of Grace combined the best of both worlds for beautiful bride Rav; insanely fine Asian hand embroidery with the perfected cut and finish of European couture. What resulted was a luxuriously regal three-piece bridal gown comprised of an exquisite open back corset, a body-conscious fishtail skirt brimming with rich colour and intricate handwork and a diaphanous dupatta (shawl).

Sex in the City meets Dolce Vita bridal style!
Faye wore a plunging hand made silk corset with elongated boning to emphasise her beautiful figure and elegant curves. A gorgeous crinkled organza bolero was made to complement her wedding dress by adding a playful yet classy appeal to her already softly lined design. And the skirt! This was made from layers of silk georgette to create bouquets of roses ‘married together’ to create a sassy little bustle.
