Jenny Packham Bridal 2016 collection

Last week we gave you a sneak peak of this season’s Bridal Market (like Fashion Week, for bridal style!) as we shared our favourite Bridal Week Instagram snaps, and a look backstage at the glorious Marchesa S/S 16 collection.

And every day this week, we’ll be sharing a new collection that will leave you utterly inspired for your own big day dress.

And who better to kick off a week of dress-swooning, than a designer beloved by brides the world over, Jenny Packham.

There’s a reason Jenny Packham is so popular with brides. Not only are her gowns easy to wear and utterly flattering on every figure, but they appeal to everyone, from brides with the most simple tastes to those looking for something really unique and fashion forward.

With a nod to some of the biggest trends of the season – caped gowns, a touch of sparkle, and daring necklines – as well as Jenny Packham’s own signature style – gorgeous gathered waists, intricate detailing and dreamy skirts – this is the kind of collection where everyone will find a favourite.

We’ll pass you over to the team at Jenny Packham to tell us a little bit more about the inspiration behind these stunning wedding dresses NZ

FROM THE FASHION HOUSE

The collection is inspired by Shakespeare’s fairy realm and the characters of a Midsummer Night’s Dream and features celestial silk tulles, romantically sculpted corsetry and cascading silk chiffon. 

Appliqué organza blooms, majestic ostrich feathers, crystal foliage motifs and delicate floral lace celebrate the lavish artistry of nature: opulent velvet bows add texture and hues of soft meadow green evoke the shades of summer.

Swarovski crystals dance in the light adding an otherworldly, whimsical grace to a collection inspired by a midsummer dream and a fairy queen.

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ From a Long Distance Courtship to an Energetic Wedding Filled with Laughs

Holy shit! Bridey, imagine getting married there! Absolute heaven, right? Seriously, I am completely obsessed with the bench seating and the lack of any additional décor; just the beauty around them. Just wait until you see the rest of the photographs from this FAB wedding! They are truly jaw-dropping and simple. The B+G? Not so much. I mean… They are a beautifully handsome couple, but they are anything but simple! 

Techincally, they’ve known each other since their freshman year at UCLA, but didn’t officially start their courtship until each were traveling for months at a time. Great timing, right? Actually, it was… They got to know each other via email and when they finally saw each other stateside, they greeted with a kiss and haven’t looked back since! Awwwww… How romantic! And, as you will see from their wedding pics, they are certainly two peas in a pod! Laughing the whole day through! Something to aspire towards, bridey… Wouldn’t you say?

We’ll pass you over to the lovely Charlotte Hohorst who works on the PR for Mira Zwillinger, to tell us a little more about these dazzling wedding dresses.

ON THE COLLECTION

Mira and Lihi titled this collection “Stardust”. They are very inspired by fantasy and resonate with the fact that, not every day can be a fairytale (life is hard sometimes), but your wedding day deserves to be.

They love that every single piece in this collection sparkles, it’s how they think women should feel- special, different and one hundred percent unique.

On fabrication, every piece from the Mira Zwillinger collection is completely one-of-a-kind. Gowns are handmade in Tel Aviv from various crystals, precious stones and the finest quality fabrics.

Mira and Lihi pride themselves on their custom laces, each piece a custom combination of up to six different designs, sewn together by hand.
