It must be such a wonderful thing to be a bridal fashion designer – creating those unique, once-in-a-lifetime kinds of dresses girls dream of from childhood! One name I’ve seen crop up on some of the more exclusive bridal couture oriented blogs is Britta Von Basedow, a new London couture designer on the bridal scene whose ‘Blanche’ collection launched at October’s Brides The Show.

Britta creates for a contemporary bride who searches for individuality – style combined with unique design and an exquisite combination of craftsmanship and materials. Her passion for haute couture is felt in each piece of her BvB-Blanche Bridal range. These are luxury gowns – made from wonderful fabrics and lined in silk, hand-embellished with rare beads and sparkling real Swarovski crystals.

Good morning everyone! I hope you’ve had a beautiful, wonderful and romantic weekend. Today I have some wedding dress ideas for you – these stunning dresses arrived via email over the weekend and I am smitten! As many of you know (if you follow English Wedding Blog on facebook) I’m now based in the beautiful English Lake District. Which is a wonderful thing – or it will be when I get my broadband! – but it’s too far for me to travel to the big bridal shows and events in That London. I missed the White Gallery show which others adored – but I’m very pleased that this little bit of it is now gracing my wedding blog. I’ll hand over to Victoria Kyriakides to tell you more about her collection!
