Utterly Gorgeous Coloured Gowns for the Unconventional Bride

For me, having a vintage inspired wedding was about trying to create a look personal and unique to me – when I was younger I was adamant I would get married in black, so obviously my wedding was always destined to be unique!

I just love the feminine shapes created by the clothes of the period and the luxurious fabrics, a decadence never really recaptured after the war, and my love of the fashion has only been intensified by exquisite English period drama Downton Abbey – here’s just a little reminder of why …..
