in the UK this week at a sumptuous champagne afternoon tea held at the
. Having first launched the collection during
, this was the highly anticipated official UK launch.
The London Mandarin Oriental was also the location of the photo shoot for the
providing the perfect lavish backdrop whilst still understated enough to let the dresses do the talking!
I just adore the simple and very feminine silhouettes of Jenny Packham bridal gowns, and the 2014 collection has more than a sprinkling of these iconic shapes along with some new and exciting additions. All of the gowns have the unmistakable Jenny Packham look which makes her one of the most recognisable bridal designers of the times.
With slim shapes and intricate beading you get the feel of Downton Abbey elegance
Alongside the flowing A-line skirts and sumptuous satin of the Golden age of Hollywood glamour
The collection takes all of these influences and creates the perfect mix of modern and vintage which will appeal to many different brides.
From the Alexia gown with the perfect combination of Edwardian styling with a thoroughly modern twist.
To Nanette which blends the sleek Hollywood satin glamour with a definite contemporary edge.
