Upcoming British bridal designer launches new 2016 collection

09 Mar 2016

Are you a bride on the hunt for a wedding dress made and designed in the UK? Inspired by the golden age of Hollywood and made with luxurious silk fabrics, the new Gemma Leakey Bridal Collection 2016 could hold the perfect dress for you

Brides-to-be enchanted by the magic of old Hollywood glamour can now take inspiration from days gone by thanks to a new 2016 bridal collection launched by British dress designer Gemma Leakey.

The seven-piece Gemma Leakey Bridal Collection 2016 is aimed at brides looking for an elegant gown with a modern twist. Inspired by old Hollywood glamour, the silhouettes are reminiscent of a bygone era.



The collection makes a nod to the key bridal trends of the season without strictly following them. Details include plunging necklines, modern organza lace and layers of fine silk tulle, 3D floral appliqués, intricate pleats and a touch of glamour in crystal embellishments.

All of the gowns are made from 100 per cent silk, featuring delicate drape and lustre. Made in the UK, using premium bridal cloths and traditional construction techniques, the company prides itself  on creating the perfect fit for its brides.



This bridal collection encapsulates a diverse range of silhouettes, based on the fact that each bride is as individual as the dress she wears - further complemented by Gemma's made to measure gown service.

To view the entire collection, see our gallery above or visit www.gemmaleakey.com/bridal, and get in touch to book your complimentary consultation. Call 07891779715 or email gl@gemmaleakey.com for further details and to book.
