I fall in love with an image as often as I fall for a design, a shoot or a designer. It’s not so often I tumble head over heels for all four… but today I have. I’d love to show you Wilderness Bride – a heritage inspired bridal collection with a dreamy, wild and romantic shoot.
Wilderness Bride has all of the things I love most in the world combined into one label: folklore, nature, wilderness – of course – and beautiful, romantic design.
Designer Stephanie Mitchell told me about her vision for this beautiful collection: “The ‘Dearest’ collection was partly inspired by an old anonymous love poem, Miss Haversham from Great Expectations, fire and autumn and the history of the location from the shoot: Tabley House in Cheshire. The collection is feminine and romantic and uses blush tones in a subtle way. With a strong focus on lace, the ideas was to create a quiet, simple elegance.”
Stephanie started Wilderness Bride in 2012 after working in the bridal industry for a number of years. She decided to branch out on her own to create her ethereal collections.
Stephanie takes inspiration from her countryside surroundings and likes to investigate old folktales and stories. She also chooses a season and an element for each collection to make that connection to nature as Wilderness is all for natural beauty.
Wilderness Bride is a heritage inspired bridal wear label based in the Cheshire countryside. Dresses and accessories are meticulously crafted in the UK by the Wilderness couture team using the best tailoring techniques.
Wilderness Bride is now stocked in highly recommended and award winning boutiques across the UK:
