Legend Bridal Designs and a very alternative styled shoot at Lowther Castle

Not everyone dreams of being a princess. I never have; and if I’m honest the classic bridal style isn’t for me. I love dresses which are different, creative, and which make a real impression. A dress has to have ‘wow’ as well as being beautiful. And in an ideal world, a dress has to have a story behind it. Enter the awesome Legend Bridal Designs along with an impressive cast of north west wedding suppliers for today’s alternative styled shoot…

I’m a little obsessed with Game of Thrones. I was excited to hear that the girls at Legend Bridal Designs have recently created custom wedding gowns for brides who love the series and found the inspiration for their day there. Legend are bespoke dressmakers with a very different kind of bridal shop – their dresses are out of this world. I was over the moon to see this magical, unique bridal shoot featuring their gorgeous designs. Images are by lovely Tiree Dawson Photography.

The dress in today’s feature is ‘Tovie’ – and model Kate looks amazing! The soft chiffon contrasts with a leather collar, and the belt and chain give it an edge which is just stunning. The beautiful V back is divine: the perfect dress for a bride who wants to look fabulous without mirroring all the other brides… if that’s you, read on!
