Timeless & Romantic Wedding Inspiration


Introducing Wanlu Bridal

Now I love a designer wedding dress as much as the next girl – I wore Jenny Packham myself and Vera Wang never fails to wow me with her beautiful use of colour. However much I adore these designers and their gorgeous gowns though, I have a special place in my heart for independent boutique brands. The often undiscovered (except by the most discerning of brides) but none the less talented designers, those pearls of the wedding industry whose work shines just as brightly once found. One such boutique brand is the wonderful Wanlu Bridal…..

Sponsor Introduction - Wanlu Bridal

Wanlu Bridal began life on Etsy under the name White Couture, but quickly grew and has lately been re-branded after the owner and designer, the lovely Wanlu Duan. Specialising in creating fairytale bridal gowns Wanlu focuses on exquisite details and quality. “Our goal is to introduce completely fresh and romantic bridal looks. We cherry-pick only the highest quality materials that will most suit our brides, from fabrics to packing. And all of our pieces are made with a heart full of love.”

After first being contacted by Wanlu, I loved looking back through her collections and seeing how the brand and gowns have grown – both in terms of size and design. From her Summer 2013 collection that was awash with ballgowns in waves of gorgeous organza and tulle…..
