Charlotte Balbier: The Modern Fairy Godmother

Designer Charlotte Balbier, the daughter of bridal powerhouse Amanda Wyatt, has been creating romantic, fairytale wedding gowns (with a quirky, vintage twist) since 2003. And she has really waved her magic wand over the recently launched 2010 collection, which features a wide range of dresses that are likely to have broad appeal.

Along with more classic pieces in beautiful fabrics, the range offers options for fashion-conscious brides – think short puffball skirts and forties-inspired tea dress hemlines. Also on offer are trends such as soft pastel shades and dramatic, ruffled single shoulder straps.

I love, love, love this range and the fact that there is something for most women, whether they want to look like Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland or a Hollywood siren. Let’s have a look:

Short stuff

If you are small like me, or want to show a little leg, these dresses are just fab!

Not everyone wants to wear white, and the collection features soft shades of pink and champagne.
