I have such a treat for Art Deco fans today!!

Now I may be slightly biased, as she is the lady that made me feel like a goddess/screen siren/starlet on our wedding day, but for me Jenny Packham is and always will be THE bridal designer for glamorous cuts, glittering details and gorgeous vintage inspired dresses.

One of the best things about Chic Vintage Brides is that it gives me the excuse to spend hours (upon hours, upon hours…) browsing gorgeous bridal gowns, from the very latest collections of the most fabulously talented designers – like Mariana Hardwick!

As a bride I chose not to have a veil – now I wonder why?! (although I still adore my deco inspired asymmetric hairband!) The incredible Vera Wang says “The wedding veil is at [...]
