Delicate Intricacy.

Delicately crafted appliqué, positioned and sewn to perfectly suit the wearer, we love Christie Nicole Bridal for her delicate intricacy and craftsmanship. A designer of one-of-a-kind wedding gowns, reception dresses and veils, Christie Nicole works intimately with her brides to dream up bespoke creations, perfect for capturing your individual aesthetic.

Think botanical embroidery atop featherweight tulle, and semi-sheer organza paired with soft pleating cascading from the waist... We’re in awe of every element of Christie Nicole’s designs.

Ornate Decadence.

There is an intoxicating allure to beauty set amongst ruins. Where decay and dilapidation are balanced with iridescent glimmers and soft finishes. An apotheosis of visual opposition and elemental juxtaposition, we love these shots of The Bridal Atelier’s newest arrivals. Beautifully photographed by LANE favorite Alli Oughtred, intricate beading and delicate lace floats amidst exposed brick and unpolished concrete, a manifestation of wild beauty and moody romance. With an emphasis on lyrical movement and undone elegance, sheer skirts and bell sleeves drape sumptuously from the body, a cascading collaboration of high fashion and bridal wear. 

Offering a refined edit of exclusive designs from the likes of Houghton, Rue de Seine and Christos Costarellos, each gown is hand selected from the runways of New York and features across two showrooms in Sydney and Melbourne.

An Australian Bridal Event in London.

There is a unique aesthetic to Australian design, an enigmatic flair linked to shape and texture. A culmination of delicate simplicity and relaxed styling that reflects the laid-back nonchalance that often defines the nation. Think eveningwear infused with street style, where everything is a little undone and effortlessly chic. Ubiquitously desired but notoriously unattainable (until now!), UK brides have a chance to shop some of Australia’s leading names in bridal at the Aussie Bridal Salon, presented by Town Hall Hotel and Knot and Pop. Featuring LANE favourites Nevenka and Bo & Luca, think sheer gauzy fabric and exaggerated ruffles, with alluring cut outs and sweeping hemlines that fall weightlessly to the floor. 

Held in London’s Town Hall Hotel from the 2nd – 5th of March, the event is appointment only, with each ticket including a two hour time-slot for the bride and three guests, champagne on arrival, a goodie bag, designer appointments with the brands and a consultation couch for wedding planning and styling advice.

The Runway Edit.

A shrine to fashion, art and design and the magic made when the three collide, Le Louvre offers exclusive access to gowns sourced directly from the runways. Think an edit of Chloe, Valentino, Lanvin and Marchesa Ready To Wear, with access to a stylist in a one on one appointment to help coordinate your look. Head over to the Le Louvre website to explore the collection…

Luxe simplicity.

Romanced by simplicity and subtlety, our latest discovery, New York based LEIN is a label that has us dreaming of barefoot beach celebrations, languid post wedding brunches and summer nights in Paris. With a background in PR for the likes of Chanel and career as a celebrity stylist, designer Meredith Stoecklein saw a gaping hole in the world of bridal fashion where understated could be achieved without compromising on luxury. And we can certainly vouch for that, having experienced these exquisite fabrics and masterful cuts up close. Think fluid lines and chic silhouettes, effortless ruffles and unassuming textures. A magic that lies in the way each piece make you feel. Explore the collection here.

A UK Bridal Boutique for the Wild at Heart.

The ghost orchid: a mystical British wildflower that grows in the darkest parts of forests, rejecting typical rules of survival, growing in its own direction and flowering only when the conditions are just right. Inspired by this enigmatic wildflower, Ghost Orchid is a UK bridal boutique for wildly individual souls, stocking some of favorite labels such as Odylyne the Ceremony and Naturae Design. With a luxurious, ethereal aesthetic and a penchant for moody romance the Ghost Orchid collection is evocative and editorially chic, perfect for brides with wild hearts and starry eyes. 

For those obsessed like we are with Odylyne's latest Bridal Week show, Ghost Orchid is holding a trunk show for the 2017 Star Crossed Lovers collection on February 10th - 12th. Bookings are a must for your private 2 hour appointment (complete with a tarot card reader on site!) Find their showroom in England’s East Yorkshire, or head to their website to view more details.
