OMG I love fashion and I love weddings, so when brilliant English designer Matthew Williamson announced he was launching a bridal line a while back, it was like my dream come true. I have always admired Matthew’s use of colour and gorgeous finishing and details and I was thrilled to be invited to the trunk show last week to see the new collection in person. Sadly, I missed the actual runway show, but the dresses were on show all night and I of course had a sneak peak through the ready to wear collection as well.
The collection is beautiful. Incorporating details and styles from many of the successful ready to wear pieces, you could see immediately the resemblance of some of Matthew’s best selling pieces. Each delicately put together with embellishments of beading and feathers, my favourite has to be the short dress with the super sassy skirt. It was of course also a pleasure to see some of my favourite wedding people, including Mary of Forever and Ever Events, Becs from Harlequin & Romance, Charley the one and only London Bride, Amma of Beyond Beyond and very briefly, the RocknRoll bride herself, Kat Williams. In addition to a chit chatting, I also finally got the chance to meet the fabulous Elizabeth who runs Bridal Musings, and Juliet McKee of Sugar and Spice Photography.
