When it comes to weddings pink never goes out of fashion. Ever. Never ever. Shades of pink come and go… fuchsia isn’t as big as it used to be. Baby is back. Mismatching pink with a-little-bit-of-everything-else is big news. So today I’ve made up this little inspiration feature for you to share, Pin, get inspired by and just enjoy while you enjoy a cup of tea 🙂

Hello there lovely blog readers, and a special hug for you if you’re just about to start wedding dress shopping. I hope you have the most wonderful time! I’d love to introduce you to one of my favourite wedding dress designers this morning – the fabulous Sassi Holford. Sassi began her business in Taunton, Somerset – and from small beginnings Sassi Holford is now an internationally renowned wedding dress brand. Her designs are timeless and beautiful, and she’s a favourite of English brides.

Sassi Holford 2014 (12)The Sassi Holford 2014 Signature Collection holds true to Sassi’s reputation for pure elegance and exquisite quality. The delicate detailing is wonderful – the Ruby gown shown above and below is already a favourite for me with those gorgeous little tendrils of lace on the cap sleeves… incredibly beautiful.

 The 2014 Signature Collection by Sassi Holford

Sassi Holford works with absolute attention to detail and an uncompromising eye for quality, and each season her collections are individual yet balanced, focused yet inspiring.


I adore Sassi Holford‘s graceful and contemporary wedding dresses. Sassi is an amazingly talented bridal designer whose gowns first made an appearance at Harrods in London before her popularity spread across the UK, to Europe and now to her New York boutique. It takes no more than a glimpse at a Sassi Holford wedding dress on the catwalk to see just why her designs are so popular.

For today it’s over to Sassi Holford and I’m sharing the fabulous 2013 Couture Collection with you. I adore this collection for its elegance and grace – the gowns take inspiration from brides themselves, which is such a lovely thing to hear.

The designs are classic English in style, with timeless elegance and a contemporary edge. Whatever your venue or wedding style, whether you’re marrying in a cathedral, a country house or a boutique hotel – there’s something from the Sassi Holford Couture Collection for you!


Morning! It’s actually really lovely to be sharing Sassi Holford’s wedding dress collection ‘So Sassi‘ with you today. Let’s start with my favourite…

The So Sassi designs are gorgeous in a very cute, contemporary and graceful way – but there’s way more to this favourite UK bridal designer than that. Let me put it another way: there are a few key messages I’d love to share with every reader of English Wedding Blog:

  1. Choose your ‘fluff’ carefully
  2. Buy handmade, quality and British made, from local suppliers if possible
  3. Focus on marriage: don’t let wedding stress get you down

They all tie in with each other, but the overall message is to buy quality items for your wedding and to choose them carefully. Cue the So Sassi 2013 bridal collection… which has every box ticked.
