Mariana Hardwick’s Captivating Precious Curiosities Collection

Today I am super excited to be sharing the latest collection from the very  first Australian bridal designer I featured on Chic Vintage Brides. It was almost a year ago to the day that I shared the stunning bridal collection created by Mariana Hardwick with its extravagant range of elegant, refined bridal gowns constructed of the most luxurious fabrics and intricate hand detailing. I loved the drama of the black lace in the Luxe collection but the introduction of silver in Precious Curiosities, is a little more subtle and gives the designs a captivating air of ethereal whimsy…..
