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:
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.
The cold shoulder
Single, ruffled shoulders are a key look.
Delicate, gorgeous lace is a classic trend.
Column dresses and mermaid shapes are totally elegant.
Big and bold
Sometimes a girl just wants to feel like a princess…
