The Best of British Bridal

Finally we can bring you the highlights from the 2013 British Bridal exhibition – the UK’s biggest and best bridal event.

An interesting play on fabrics was also evident this year, with an array of patterns and prints, laser-cut fabrics, embroidered lace motifs and opulent bead work – reinventing the classics with a contemporary twist.

Wedding Belles

This week, we bring you pictures of the ever beautiful Kate Bosworth, who married Michael Polish in a picturesque setting on a mountain top in Montana. Kate wore two dresses; both of which were created by legendary designer Oscar de la Renta.

She arrived at the intimate ceremony in a horse drawn carriage, adorning an ivory radzimir-satin strapless ball gown, complete with an eight-foot long and 16-foot-wide train for the ceremony. She complemented the minimalist look with an elegant diamond headband and diamond earrings, courtesy of sparkling estate diamond jewellery.
