If you’re planning a winter wedding, these images of the 2013 collection by Lazaro will inspire. Almost as looking through a sheet of ice or frosted window, the stunning dresses stand out from the cold, dramatic background. This season designer Lazaro Perez has blended his signature hand-beading and floral elements with lush textural skirts, corset bodices to create these striking gowns. We particularly like the pale pink / champagne coloured ones!
Here it is, the Jenny Packham 2013 wedding dress collection in all its beauty.
If you want to be the prettiest bride there is (we know you’ll be regardless!), take a look at the Jim Hjelm 2013 bridal collection. Known for unique detailing and the combination of luxurious fabrics with delicate embroidery, this range will satisfy the most discerning bride. Ranging from gowns with vintage inspired fabrics to modern silhouettes, we can fault it.
The Alvina Valenta 2013 bridal collection is a delightful range of satin silk and lace gowns with romantic detailing . If sophistication and elegance is what you’re after, then take a closer look at this collection.
If you’re after a wedding dress that is a bit different, Melbourne-based designer Mariana Hardwick‘s offers romance with a twist with her Luxe collection. With a model resembling the beauty of Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen, there is something everlasting and mythological about the collection. With silver embellishments and beautiful details, the Hardwick bride is at one with her surroundings, floating around like a true princess.
If you’re after a modern wedding dress that is feminine and playful, take a look at the bridal collection of Katya Katya Shehurina. Embodying the notion of a woman according to Katya, her designs are graceful and mysterious with a hint of sensibility. A stunning collection, these gowns drape themselves around the bride’s shape and will showing off her feminine curves.
All gowns are created to the specifics of the bride, so the length of sleeves and colour of the fabric can be altered to taste.
Known for her ethereal and affordable wedding dresses, designer Minna Hepburn has only been dabbling in bridal design since late 2011. Her first collection was a hit with brides everywhere, and we’re sure the ‘Love Letter’ collection won’t disappoint either.
While still managing to keep all dresses below the £1000 mark, Minna uses luxurious fabrics and hand embellished detailing on her designs. Beautiful!

The 2013 collection by Papilio takes us right back to the age of screen sirens and glamour, as it should with a name like On the Road to Hollywood.

As part of YolanCris’ seven mini-collections of wedding dresses – aptly named Seven Promises – Couture Couture is where Old Hollywood glamour meets the adventurous spirit of eras past. Though the designer is Spanish, we really get a sense of 1920s Britain when looking at the wedding dresses. Perhaps it is our obsession with Downton Abbey that’s causing this…
Our favourite bridal gowns from Couture Couture are: Nantes, Vesubio, Toscana and Pucket. Which are yours?
If you have a bohemian spirit about you, then new label MiaMia (the sibling label of Alan Hannah) will be to your taste. A collection full of beautiful gowns with elegant touches of beading on sumptuous silks (duchesse, slipper satin and organza), we can’t really decide on which we like the best. Can you?
An elegant and breathtakingly beautiful collection, Alan Hannah‘s Classic Beauty oozes of 1920’s dazzle and Old Hollywood glamour. With bejewelled shoulders and decorative headpieces, the wedding dresses embrace and enhance the natural curves of the woman – as any dress should.
Take a look at the collection above.
A mix of unusual outfits and dresses for the bride, YolanCris doesn’t just stay in Chelsea, looking at the names of the dresses he’s travelled the world for inspiration. From Hong Kong to Nepal, Liverpool to Glasgow, these gowns feature details such as zippers and see-through materials. Definitely not for the shy bride.
With over 20 years of experience in designing bridal gowns, Eugenia Couture is one of the leading wedding dress designers in the US – and beyond.

We’re particularly taken with style #3813 (seen top left above), mostly for its princess-esque look and fun bolero. Check out the complete collection below.
