The brainchild of Kate Halfpenny, this bridalwear brand fuses Brit cool with a luxe sensibility.

Celebrating the female form with bold and beautiful fashion statements, Kate’s star-studded clientele is testament to her vivid and vibrant vision.
Sister to Sienna Miller, Savannah is taking the bridal world by storm with her bohemian-inspired ethereal designs. Avalon’s Song is the title of Savannah’s AW17 collection, which is truly graceful and effortlessly sophisticated. Drawing upon her love of vintage styling and the wild English countryside, gowns are made in sumptuously rich and textured fabric, paired with simple, flattering lines and elegant silhouettes.

Combining the expected with the unexpected to add an element of surprise, Poppy Dover offers a contemporary twist to traditional bridalwear. The modern romantic is catered for in Poppy's signature designs which are created in her Chelsea studio.

Using a selection of carefully hand-picked fabrics from trusted Italian and British suppliers, dresses are brought to life with natural silks in varying forms of crepe, silk satin, duchess satin and georgette.
